In brief: Learn babies ques

In early infancy babies love to interact with their caregivers and have a hard time letting go of the aleart state.
The drift thru wake and sleep states like an adult drifting off in a boring lecture. If baby is tired, they may fuss to let you know they are tired & want you to fix it. If you reduce stimulation and let them settle in their "tired place" they will often drift off.
