For many new San Francisco parents, one of their biggest worries once they’re home with their new baby is not knowing how to tell when their infant is hungry versus tired, needing a diaper change, is over-stimulated or any of the other reasons that a newborn baby cries. While some people will tell you to feed your newborn on a strict schedule, every infant and mother-baby pair is unique. Maybe you or your little one do better with on-demand feeding. In any case, it’s important to know what your baby’s cues are so that you become confident of hunger signals and understand when she needs to be fed as opposed to soothed in other ways. See the tips below from the San Francisco doctors at GetzWell Pediatrics to learn more about how to determine if your newborn is ready for his or her next meal.
