Cue-Based Feeding: How to Facilitate Positive Opportunities for Breast and Bottle Feeding

Childrens Hospital Los Angeles

Cue-based feeding is a broad term to describe a process by which parents and medical providers can successfully attend to developmental cues to promote optimal feeding opportunities. It is also referred to as infant-led or demand feeding. This approach may be used to heighten the quality of a baby’s feed through use of a developmentally supportive model to improve the caregiver-infant relationship during the transition to full oral feeds. When the focus of a feed is led by volume expectations, negative consequences may ensue—such as disinterest, oral aversion and reduced quality of feed—that may compromise safety of swallow.
