Looking for ‘tired’ signs with your baby

How do you know when your baby is ready to sleep?

Babies can become overtired quickly so it is important to watch them closely and learn to recognise their signs of tiredness – before they become irritable and overstimulated.

Some baby tired signs are obvious – such as yawning or thumbsucking – but others aren’t as easy to recognise.
