Babies are very good at knowing if they need more food and when they have had enough to eat. Some babies will eat more than others – every baby is different. Let your baby guide you.
Here are the signs your baby has had enough to eat:
- they turn their head away
- they spit their food out
- they refuse food by pushing it away with their hand
- they close their mouth when food gets close
- they cry and are unhappy when you are trying to feed them.
As your baby becomes more active, you will need to offer small amounts of food more often.
