Hai rashmi... make her play a lot. Her energy should drain. and don't allow her to sleep day time. she is dreaming I guess. Thats normal.

it's a startle reflex that is normal in babies. it will be fine when the baby. wherever u r placing ur baby to sleep keep pillows around her. to give that sense of security. and babies this young need to sleep at least 15-16 hours a day. so making them not sleep during daytime is not the solution. they don't have the ability to differentiate between night and day. so during daytime make sure u r doing everything at normally. and night time. dim the lights. play a soft lullaby . try to keep a silent environment. and rock or swaddle ur baby and she will sleep. all this take time and patience. but it will all b fine once the routine kicks off. so don't worry. also make sure she isn't having any gas pains. if she is crying inconsolably and pulling her legs up those maybe sign of gas. so try cycling her legs and burp her. if that's not the case then try doing what I mentioned before.
