How much Cerebelly should my little one eat?Updated 2 years ago

First, know that every baby is unique in their eating habits and caloric needs. It's always best to talk with a nutritionist or your pediatrician about how many calories your little one needs at any given time.

As a general rule, in the first few months of starting solid foods, a baby may eat anywhere from a quarter to a half of a Cerebelly pouch per sitting. But their caloric needs ramp up quickly, so it's important to pay attention to their cues, both when they're still hungry and when they're done eating.

Some signs of hunger include moving their fist to their mouth, become more alert and active, sucking on their hands or lip smacking, or opening and closing their mouth rapidly.

When they're done eating, cues can include pushing out the spoon with their tongue, pursing their lips, turning their head to the side, covering their eyes or breaking eye contact, and pushing food away with their hands.
