  • shes alot more alert now, very aware of her could be she is just not wanting to miss anything...or if you are a mom that rocks thier baby to sleep they wake up immediately after you stop...its a difficult situation if thats the case cause nothing you can do but stop rocking her and ignoring her screams...but if you know shes been fed, and changed...let her cry...she will go to sleep eventually! its hard but its the best thing...
