What is responsive feeding? Does fussiness mean hunger? Responsive feeding is the practice of recognizing the infant’s cues for hunger and fullness and responding appropriately.  Research has shown that responsive feeding can help maintain nutrition, proper growth and appetite regulation. Learn how to help your patients practice this method for healthier infant feeding.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the four fundamental principles of responsive feeding.
  • Recognize and describe the specific attributes and behaviors that constitute responsive feeding.
  • Apply evidence-based knowledge of the benefits of responsive feeding to inform their practice with children and families.
