had enough?

Signs that indicate when your baby has had enough food

Some signs are:

  • Your baby turns his or her head away from the bottle
  • Your baby spit outs or bites the nipple
  • Your baby gets fussy or closes his or her mouth when you try to put the bottle back in
  • Your baby falls asleep

Once a baby has had enough there is no need to encourage your baby to take more; your baby will get it at the next feeding.
