Nursing Advice: When newborns are hungry, their hands are fisted and drawn tight against their chest. However, during a feeding and once their tummies begin to fill up, their hands open, their fingers soften, and their arms lie lower across their body. The American Pregnancy Association also confirms this easy indication of satiety/satisfaction from newborns at the end of a feeding: The baby looks relaxed, “falls” off the breast, has open hands, and/or falls asleep.

Relactation - Restarting breastfeeding after a gap - Association of Breastfeeding Mothers. Unbelievable!!! So many women would benefit from knowing this. Women don't dry up forever. What a huge stress relief to know you can restart. It's always so sad to me to hear so many women have a heavy heart over not "being able" to breastfeed for the first year.
