Turns her head back and forth quickly. She turns her head and starts to zone out, so she’ll turn her head sharply, repeat.
Wants to jump
Pulls her hair
Scratches her face repeatedly
Pulls out her paci (pacifier)
Refuses to eat even when she’s hungry
Repeatedly lifts her legs and throws them back down violently.
Pulls out her paci (this is the baby equivalent of slapping yourself in the face to stay awake)
Thrashes her head (she has a bald spot on the back of her head from doing that)
Cries when cradled
Stares without blinking;seriously, this girl could win any staring contest
scratches at her eyes
I don’t understand the baby instinct to stay awake at all cost. If I could sleep whenever I wanted to, I’d love it. I guess they don’t have any concept that live goes on as normal when they close their eyes. They probably think they are missing something important when they sleep. I wonder what it is that motivates them to stay awake as long as possible.
