How do we know that our baby is hungry? It’s not always as clear as we think. Here are a few indications that it’s time for a feed.
- Getting restless
- Making murmuring sounds
- Turning their head and opening their mouth (rooting)
- Licking their lips
- Sucking on fingers or fist
- Crying or screaming (the last cue)
It's best to try and feed your baby during these early feeding cues as a crying baby is difficult to feed.
