Reaches for food when he sees it and says “time to eat.”
Eats with full attention on you and anticipates the next bite.
Knowing when he’s full
Your baby usually makes his wishes known when he’s full.
Turns his head or leans away from the spoon.
Shuts his mouth tight and shakes his head “no” to say he’s had enough.
Pushes away his bowl and tries to knock the spoon from your hand.
No longer appears interested in eating and looks away from you.
