Growing babies are hungry babies

Your little one may be approaching another growth spurt soon and just like the previous growth spurts, be prepared for increased hunger and increased fussiness. Try not to ignore hunger cues or hold your baby off until the clock indicates a time for a feeding. Remember, your baby is a little human being and as humans we get hungry for meals and snacks at various times throughout the day and night. Your little one is working hard to grow and learn, and they will let you know when they need extra fuel for all of their development.
