What are the signs that my baby is hungry?

1 post in this topic

Despite what some new moms might think, crying is a late sign of hunger. You should try to nurse before your baby is so hungry that he or she gets really upset and becomes difficult to calm down.

Signs that babies are hungry include:

  • moving their heads from side to side
  • opening their mouths
  • placing their hands and fists to their mouths
  • puckering their lips as if to suck
  • nuzzling again their mothers' breasts
  • stretching
  • showing the rooting reflex (when a baby moves its mouth in the direction of something that's stroking or touching its cheek)
