    Cool When will HE recognize the signs?

    I read this somewhere, but I don't remember where, nor the answer.

    It seems as though he gets really mad when he's made to wait for the breast. If I have to prop up the pillow, get my shirt up, work the bra clasp, get him situated, then put him on, by the time I get to that last step, he's squirming, getting fussy, and nearly crying, in a panic because the milk isn't there yet! I understand he's hungry, but sheesh, kid!

    So around what age does he calm down when he sees what I'm doing and recognizes it as dinner preparation instead of steaming because I'm not moving fast enough?

    Soon would be nice!

    I would say that if your child is sensitive, you may want to practice recognizing his cues to you SOONER. YOU will get to a point where getting all of the "prep" done will take less than one minute, (Seriously) but in the mean time as soon as you see ANY QUE you should react because it's actually a very common problem that a child who is "too hungry" can't be settled enough to eat. You don't want that to happen!

    i have noticed recently, not sure if it is coincidence..but happens to often i think..but as soon as i start to unclasp bra and get into position etc he calms down, he only started doing it this week and he 8 weeks old...ive also noticed the last cpl of days when he is hungry he does stare at my chest area quite intently sometimes as if willing the top to go so he can get to the food..it is quite funny tbh, he looks like he is concentrating really hard!!

    I've tried! He goes from 0 to hungry in less than 10 seconds! It already only takes me just a minute to do all the prep, bet by the time I finish, he's past ready...

    I would start writing down the time when he eats....after a few days/week you will probably have a pattern that may help you beat him to the punch so to speak. but my LO was a few months old before he relaxed at all about food.....and that wasnt much

    Mine actually gets the most impatient when he sees me working on getting ready to nurse him. I've taken to leaving the nursing cover strap threaded and surreptitiously unsnapping my bra cup through my shirt so he doesn't notice so soon

    Yes, little tricks like these do wonders. My son is especially impatient when I pick him up from work even if he isn't hungy. I will usually unsnap my bra and start lifting my t-shirt before I lay him down so that all I have to do is lay down and latch him on. Of course, this is if we at home.

    DD is about 3 weeks older than yours, and I've noticed that in the past couple of weeks DD seems to know what I'm doing... her eyes open really big and her mouth forms this little "O" and she starts making these sounds, "Oh oh oh" like she can barely contain her excitement!

    But she still gets a little angry if I take too long. She also really gets mad and cries if I try to talk to DH while she is nursing, unless I whisper. So strange.
