hi may b u r trying to feed yhe baby when its too sleepy. adjust ur feed time lil earlier so that the baby is fed n goes to sleep peacefully. even if babies are hungry they cant slp so timing matters.

without sucking milk she never sleeps . I start feeding her as soon as I get  cues like. rubbing eyes and yawing still she refuses

ok 5 month old can sleep well .wats her weight if u know. its actually a good thing she doesnt want milk wen.sleepy . ur baby is asking for sleep . there is this simple strategy try to find the sleepy window. sleepy window is wen baby is drowsy but not asleep . a 5 mon old cant stay awake for more than 2n half to 3 hrs. so put him for nap when the baby is showing sleep sign before he gets tired

ruqaiya khan

ur baby actually wants to sleep without the milk n thats a good thing encourage her to fall asleep without milk n she will soon sleep well at night .u have a smart sleeper

Priyanka Kumari

how I can encourage her to sleep

ruqaiya khan

wen she is sleepy (the time she is usually sleeps) lay her down calmly , slowly pat her til she feels drowsy then let her sleep. after some days she will sleep herself as she already wants to sleep without ur help.

Priyanka Kumari
