Have noticed this in sock: (1) doses gradually with eyes half closed, making sucking motions with mouth kneading gestures with hands; (2) eyes gradually close tightly at which time he makes little chirps, nestles deeper into hand or sock, making sniffling & nudging sounds as butts with head (3) Then is completely out and relaxed - Quiet, and can even pick up and doesn't wake up.
