Sign of hungry baby


Dealing with newborn for new parents can be overwhelming. When it comes to feeding, parents should be aware that baby needs to be fed. Every newborn is unique. They have their own schedule and pattern. Some may require feeding more frequent than others. In general, baby will exhibit sign of hunger when they are hungry. Parents and caregiver should be aware of these, so baby can get adequate feeding.

Newborn should be nursing or getting feeding 8-12 times per day during the first month. Feeding, either breastfeeding or formula milk feeding should be “on demand” or when baby is hungry. As baby grows, they tend to nurse less frequent. They will develop their own unique rhythm and habit.

How can I tell if my baby is hungry? There are some signs that baby or newborn may exhibit when they are hungry. Parents or caregiver need to be sensitive to baby’s need.

Signs of hungry baby:

  • Moving head from side to side
  • Sticking out the tounge
  • Opening the mouth
  • Placing hands or fists to the mouth
  • Sucking or puckering the lips
  • Nuzzling or pecking again mother’s breasts
  • Exhibiting rooting reflex (moving the mouth toward the direction of something that stroke or touch their cheek)

As you are aware of this sign and give enough feeding to your baby, they will grow well and happily. You will need to know when your baby is full.
