Your newborn doesn’t come with an instruction manual and cannot talk right now. They might display many different signs to try and communicate their needs to you.
Some signs to tell you they’re tired include
- staring into the distance
- jerky movements
- fussing/sucking fingers
- losing interest in their surroundings
or that they’re feeling hungry
- make sucking noises
- turn towards the breast
or maybe they’re ready for some play time
- eyes wide and bright
- eye contact with you
Remembering, every newborn is different, and as you get to know your newborn you will be able to identify the unique ways they are trying to communicate with you.
