  • my son did this, it's like he'll miss something if he closes his eyes. what we did was removed all stimulants. no light, no nosies( we did put on some classical music really, really softly), and no holding. we laid him in his crib and sat out of sight, when he cried we would get up and pat him on his belly a few times and then walk away again and sit out of sight, we did this just a few minutes and that was that.

  • Swaddle her.

    She is probably over tired and needs to sleep more.
