Example text

Most understood this to be a ‘common-sense’ approach to satisfying a baby whose needs, especially in the early postnatal period, were unpredictable. However, it also caused tensions. Our data show, therefore, that the construction of infants as born innocent and self-regulating, and of idealised and/ or ‘good’ mothers who are highly attentive to, interpretative of, and responsive to, their baby’s cues combined with the significant moral and/or ethical imperatives underpinning infant-feeding directives, fails to problematise baby-led parenting approaches, especially with respect to weaning.

In order to maintain physiological equilibrium, such infants were therefore subjected to medical interventions in the form of scheduled feeds, irrespective of hunger cues and whilst we exercise caution in taking the attribution of ‘laziness’ at face-value, some mothers made connections between this overriding of an infant’s ‘natural’ appetite and subsequent feeding-related problems. For example, Anna (who is obese) links the imposition of a strict feeding regime in the early weeks of her child’s life with his current food refusal.
