Summary: All babies, even those who are born early have ways to show us how they are feeling. By watching your baby’s body language, you will learn to recognise when they feel happy and content, when they are tired or when they may need some help and support from you. This information is intended for parents and carers of premature babies though much of the information is also relevant to newborn babies.
