Question: My months baby eating his hands everytime. Not only hand but also what comes to his hand he eats that. Pls advise. He is in breastfeeding exclusively. Haven't yet started outside food yet. Is the milk not enough for him?
Answer: Hello dear, Most babies start teething between 4 and 7 months. But at this age, a more likely possibility is that your baby has started to "find" her hands, which may become her new favorite play things.
Babies have a natural urge to suck. This urge usually decreases after the age of 6 months. But many babies continue to suck their thumbs to soothe themselves. Thumb-sucking can become a habit in babies and young children who use it to comfort themselves when they feel hungry, afraid, restless, quiet, sleepy, or bored.
You can start baby solid with few spoon of soup and juice.
Hope it helped, Take care ur little one...
