How to Know When Your Baby Is Hungry ?

How to Know When Your Baby Is Hungry ?

by T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.

In the first weeks, most of his crying is likely to be saying he is hungry. If he's been changed, does not soothe with gentle rocking and singing, and is not crying piercingly (a cry of pain), he's probably ready for a feeding.

If he's not been fed for an hour or more, it may be time to feed again. After a few weeks, he'll be able to take in more at each feeding and stretch out the time he can go before he's hungry again.

When a baby is ready to feed, he'll often lift and bob his head, open his mouth, and even smack his lips, and he'll try to suck on whatever comes his way.
