How can you know if your baby is Hungry?

You may have heard others say that you’ll know when your baby is hungry because she will cry. And yes, that is true, your baby will cry when she’s hungry; however, crying is a late sign of hunger. You will want to do your best to offer a feeding before your child starts to cry, especially if she’s awake and alert.
Crying is actually a late sign of hunger, and it is one that is best avoided. Babies who have to cry before being fed usually breastfed poorly and often fall asleep at the breast after a short time. Mouth motions: Your baby may make sucking motions and sounds, lick his lips, smack his lips, or stick out his tongue.
Sucking can be a sign that a baby is ready for a feed, but babies may suck a lot on their fingers and hands when they are not hungry. This reflex can also cause them to suck on their fingers and hands. This sucking is usually not a sign that a baby is not getting enough milk.
