Here's how your sitter let's you know its time to eat!
Cries or fusses when hungry for milk or desires food.
Reaches for spoonfuls of food.
Opens mouth and leans in toward bowl or spoon.
Smiles and looks at you while feeding to say they want to continue eating.
Knowing when he’s full
Whether breast-, bottle- or spoon-feeding, your baby makes his wishes known when he’s full. Don't force more food than your baby seems to want. Respect that he knows when he's full.
Turns his head from the nipple, if it’s breast or bottle.
Leans away from the food and may push the spoon away.
Clenches his mouth shut and doesn’t allow you to feed him.
Spits out food that he likes.
Pushes away the bowl or whatever food is there.
Slows down the pace, gets distracted and looks elsewhere.
Falls asleep while feeding.
