Re: Poll about hunger cues
like MomofAaron, we kind of know that our dd gets hungry every 3-4 hours. when she started sucking on her hands, i'd feed her...but when she started sucking on her hand all the time, i'd wait for her to get fussy while sucking her hands...that's when i knew she was getting hungry (which coincidentally was about 3 hours after i last fed her).
during her last growth spurt, she was always sucking on her hands and was fussy more often...so of course, i was nursing her more often!
HTH! good luck!
