How to tell if Zoe is hungry

In our breastfeeding class, they spent a long time going over how to recognize your child’s hunger cues – mostly sticking out her tongue and making sucking motions. Well I’ve discovered a new and far superior method for testing if Zoe is hungry: the nose test. The test entails putting your nose on her mouth and seeing if she sucks on it. If she does, then she’s hungry. For the more visual learners, I’ve put together a flowchart.

Due in no part (I’m sure) to this advanced technique of mine, Zoe has grown noticeably. And she’s growing cuter and cuter with every day. I do believe that Chris and I are going to be in trouble.
