  • My baby girl does this when she wakes up at night, too!! It's so hard not to smile back at her. I just keep the lights off & lay in bed with her until she goes back to sleep, which is usually in 30 minutes or so. Aside from her waking up that once to eat & get changed, she sleeps all through the night.
