English term or phrase: responsive feeding
Definition from World Health Organization:
Feeding young infants requires active care and stimulation, where the caregiver is responsive to the child clues for hunger and also encourages the child to eat. This is also referred to as active or responsive feeding.

Example sentence(s):
  • Premature infants need their mothers’ sensitive and responsive feeding behavior to regulate their feeding, to feed adaptively and to engage their mothers.
  • Also very importantly, responsive feeding, maternal encouragement to eat and other psychosocial aspects of care during feeding likely to be important for ensuring adequate food and nutrient intake of the child.
  • The complementary feeding phase is a fun learning time for infants. Listening to their baby’s messages is all parents need to do to develop a responsive feeding relationship. INFACT Canada

hranjenje na zahtjev

Definition from Zdrav život (family health online):
"Uvjet je dojenje na zahtjev djeteta, što znači dojenje kad god to dijete zatraži."

Example sentence(s):
  • Kao odgovor na ta pitanja, postoje dva načina hranjenja: dojenje na zahtjev djeteta, tj. uvijek kada beba plače ili na drugi način pokazuje da je gladna, podojem koji traje onoliko dugo dok beba sama ne ispusti dojku ili zaspe. Dojenje na zahtjev djeteta u sebi objedinjuje i nutritivno (potreba za hranom i tekućinom) i nenutritivno sisanje (potreba za utjehom, sigurnošću, smirenjem,...) - (parents portal)
