Feeding and nutrition

How can I tell when my baby is hungry?

Look for these feeding cues to know when your little one is hungry:

  • Early cues: ‘I’m hungry’ – stirring, open mouth, head turning and seeking/rooting.
  • Mid cues: ‘I’m really hungry!’ – stretching, increased physical movements, hand moving to mouth.
  • Late cues: ‘Calm me, then feed me’ – crying, agitated body movements, colour turning red.
