Hi! I’m a new mom to a 6 week old baby girl. I know that babies often make noises in their sleep including snorting, whimpering and even crying and that will wake them up temporarily. Sometimes she does this and immediately wants to feed. Sometimes I guess she’s just dreaming or fidgeting and she falls right back to sleep. Problem is, I don’t know the difference between the two! My instinct is to anticipate her feeding and always get her out of bed, but I’m afraid I may be waking her up when she’s not hungary. Is there a way to tell the difference between the two?

I just saw this question @albanymom, and I’m afraid I don’t have a specific answer for you. It might be a good idea to bring up with your pediatrician at your next check-up. Also, I suspect over time you’ll get more accustomed to what noises she makes and what they mean.
