Quieting a laughing baby

* This article is an excerpt from the above Sefer

Quieting a laughing baby:[1]

A person who sees a baby laughing in the middle of sleep, is to use this finger to flick at his nose [and quiet him down], as this is a sign that Lilis is playing with the child. The same applies when the baby begins laughing on his own while awake without any instigation. This especially applies on the night of Rosh Chodesh.
