Feed your child, change her diaper (if fundamental), and put her back to sleep as fast as could really be expected.

It could two or three days for your child to acclimate to the sleepsuit. I notice this on the grounds that your child is going through major progress.

Child Sleep At 90 days
I need to share somewhat more data around multi-month-old child rest plans. You should keep doing the sleep time routine you set up when your child was an infant.
