... That when baby cries he/she's hungry? What do u try first, before nursing to see if baby is just crying, or actually hungry?
I'm asking... Becuz dh is asking...
I go back to work on 11/4. I am so nervous and sad to leave my baby but I am the bread winner, so back I go lol. Dh is just curious what to try b4 feeding her when she cries. If she so much as wimpers right now, he heads her to me thinking she's hungry. Lol. Just trying to help him transition. Ds was 4 months old b4 I went back to work so this is new to him.
I think about time... when was the last nap? (That's usually my son's crying clue.)
I think about diapers and then feeding. I always note when the last nap/diaper/feeding was so when fussiness starts, I can go through my mental checklist.
Start having your husband do that. I think there are even apps for that, LOL. If not, get him a little notepad. I think this mental checklist is harder for men to grasp (at least it is for my husband) so training with a notepad might help him learn your baby's cues more intuitively. :)
