Baby's hands and how they use them - :I've finished my feed".

Baby's hands and how they use them - "I've finished my feed".

Caring for a new baby is a learning process for first-time mothers, especially as many mothers haven't held a newborn baby before. A common question is - "How do I know when my baby has finished a breastfeed?"
 
Of course, as you get to know your baby and gain more confidence, it is easier to know when the feed has finished. 
 
Unfortunately, people ofter tell mothers that a baby will always go to sleep or come off the breast by herself.  This isn't the reality with a lot of babies.
