It is not correct to judge whether the baby is full only from the length of the baby’s feeding time. Because some babies will continue to suck for 10 minutes or more after sucking empty milk, while others just like to suck and play. It is impossible to accurately judge whether a baby is hungry only from his crying, because babies often cry for other reasons. So how do you know if your baby is full?
First move: look at your weight
It is reliable to judge whether the baby is full by the weight gain and daily behavior of the baby. If the baby is in a good mood when he is awake, and his weight increases day by day, it means that the baby is full; If the baby’s weight grows slowly for a long time, and the possibility of suffering from a certain disease is ruled out, it is generally considered that the baby is not full when he is full.
Second move: listen to the cry
When breast-feeding, the baby does not leave the breast for a long time. After breast-feeding, the baby cries, which is the manifestation of his satiety.
Third move: look at the way you feed
The baby can sleep quietly after eating milk, and will not cry until the next feeding. Or sometimes, if you inhale for a while, you will spit out your nipples and cry, and you will not gain weight. This is the manifestation of your baby’s insufficient food.
If it takes a lot of effort to nurse, and you fall asleep soon after sucking, and wake up crying after less than 1~2 hours, or sometimes you suck milk violently, this is also a sign that your baby is not full.
The fourth move: look at defecation
Abnormal stool, constipation and diarrhea. Normal stool should be yellow ointment. When the milk is insufficient, the stool will appear secret knot, thin, green or the number of times will increase and the amount of excretion each time is small, which is the performance of the baby’s insufficient food.
