Might not be awake: Your baby might not actually be awake- babies move a lot (and make lots of noise!) during sleep. Sometimes it may sound and seem like they are awake, but they are in fact asleep.

I'd advise against: Infants are not aware of sleep until well into the 2nd yr.They drift into sleep like u do listening to a sermon that goes too long. They need a comfortable sleep zone;enough light to be visually recognize the setting, simple background sound and a mattress to be lain on.Reading to the tired kid from a distance helps them settle.Kids rocked to sleeep have 3-4x sleep disturbences for the first 4 yr. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: All babies need to develop self-soothing skills and many babies do this with non-nutritive sucking (for example, thumb-sucking). The fact that she has learned to soothe herself with her thumb and to fall asleep with that is both normal and wonderful.

Crib and Nap: You are probably responding to her cries too quickly. It is a learned response for the baby. She cries and you run in. The more she cries, the more you run in. I say, put her down and let her cry for a while. Let her see that she does not always get what she wants with the crying. Otherwise she is simply training you instead of the other way around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hungry 2 months old sometimes falls asleep during feedings. Are there ways to stimulate her so that she finishes her bottle?
Really hungry?: She may not be hungry. You can encourage staying awake by taking bottle out of the mouth and putting back in, rubbing her back/ feet - but when tired sleep will win. I recommend not ever trying to use the bottle to soothe her to sleep - instead work to change the pattern to sleep - feed - awake/play time - sleep... After a few cycles of this pattern, she won't be sleepy at feeding times.Take care. ...Read more

Yes. Nursing caries: can occur from repeated exposure of the lingual, or tongue, side of the. the teeth to the sugar in breast milk, especially if the mother & baby have streptococcus mutans bacteria in their mouths.
