Is your baby is getting enough during feedings? Is she still hungry…or is she full?

Do you ever wonder if your baby is getting enough during feedings? Is she still hungry…or is she full? 🙈⁣⁣⁠
⁣⁠
I used to go CRAZY wondering these same questions…(seriously, I was SO obsessed with his feedings and giving him enough)⁣⁣⁠
⁣⁠
This is actually a very effective tip I learned from my own lactation consultant by going to her breastfeeding support groups! ⁣⁣⁠
⁣⁠
Use baby’s hands as a guide to determine how hungry they are! Their hands are almost like a gas gauge!⁣⁠
⁣⁠
Next time you feed your little one, notice how her hands are tighter at the beginning of a feed, and sloooowly start to loosen. By the end of the feed, baby’s hands should be nice and relaxed! 😎 ⁣⁣⁠
⁣⁠
Of course, all babies are different too! Your baby may not ever relax his hands completely-some babies (especially dependent on age) always have their little hands in fists. But his shoulders, arms, legs etc. may look a little more relaxed at the end of a feeding! ⁣⁠
⁣⁠
Moral of this post-watch baby during feedings and their cues! If they are satisfied (and that means not OVER-full too!) they should be relaxed-and this most often is evident in those tiny little hands of theirs! 💓⁣⁠
⁣⁠
At your next feeding, take note, did this happen with your baby? Report back!! 🥰⁣
