Responsive feeding is a technique in which feeding begins when an infant expresses signs of hunger and ceases when an infant expresses signs of fullness. It is important to respond to an infant’s cues for when he is hungry and when he is full. This ensures the infant receives the appropriate amount of nourishment to grow and thrive.
