How do you know when your baby is full??


Hannah doesn't give any clear signals and will keep on taking whether she is full or not. I only know she is full when she starts puking it up again!! Which is rare. She lives for snack feeding AAAAALLLLL day!

So how do you know when your baby is full?

Yea Tabitha just sleeps, or i stop feeding her when i get bored But when she was younger she would feed for about 3hrs at a time, have now realised that she was doing it for comfort rather than being hungry When you start with babyrice will get easier..that was my findings anyway.

My baby is the same (although fed on EBM) - he will keep eating aslong as I let him, until he throws up. If I stop him too early, he does a very loud cry of protestation, so if I stop feeding him and he is quiet, I assume he has had about the right amount.

Sometimes he'll cry until I let him eat till he is sick. Silly baby.

You could try a dummy if you arent against the idea and offer that when you are not sure if she is wanting more food or not, she will soon let you know if she does then you will know when shes full

Oh Logie, Joshua is the same!
I am constantly feeding and so exhausted its not funny
He spat out the dummy I tried too,so no good.

He snacks constant,if he does manage to last 2-3 hours without feeding I sit there in shock.

He is crying again now and I only put him down 25 mins ago.

I think I'm lucky too. Since day one (well no, since we cracked his latch at about 2 weeks) he has fed then fallen asleep and taken himself off, had a stretch then gone back to sleep. Sometimes he stays on for much longer, dozing and comfort sucking. But I have learned not to take him off when he does this as he'll usually wake up after 10 minutes, have another good guzzle for a minute then come off. If I interrupt his comfort sucking he'll wake up 10 minutes later and cry for more.
