What are the main sleepy cues you look for in your baby to know when to put them down for nap other than yawning?

Irritability, eye rubbing and head scratching for my little boy ❤️xx

To be honest, I do what Huckleberry tells me to because by the time he looks tired it's too late to avoid a screamy nap!

Baby having floor time and the first cry I'll check to see if something is up, then put back down. Second cry = nap time, every time.

Thank you! @MonkeyPantaloons I used to use huckleberry religiously but I found it wasn't accurate for LO after 6 months. @FATEdestiny I used to always use this as a marker for when to put down for a nap aswell but now at 7 months it's not as apparent. Finding it hard to figure out her wake windows
