Feeding cues

Feeding cues

You baby will show you when she wants to feed by:

  • Putting hands to mouth
  • Licking lips
  • Squeaking noises
  • Rooting (moving mouth and head as if looking for a feed)
  • Turning head
  • Mouthing Light fussing
  • Eye lids flickering whilst asleep

Keep your baby close to you in the first days and weeks after they are born. This will:

  • Help you get to know each other
  • Make feeding cues easy to see
  • Enable you to feed on demand
  • Help your baby feel safe and cared for
