List your baby's top signs that he/she wants to eat, and lets see what is most common amongst us?

crying grin
fist chomping
open mouthed face waving
snuggling in and going all frantic!

all the above apply to a colic/wind situation though!

-breathing in and out really fast, like panting with his mouth open
-arching back, trying to lie down in my arms

As an aside, when he was newborn until about six weeks, he rubbed the back of his hand over his mouth. Swaddling killed this one off, makes me feel sad to think about it.

With mine when newborn it was pretty much being awake grin.
