Answer: Hi mommy baby sucking thumb/hand is a perfectly natural, self-reliant way for a child to soothe themselves. I think people make to much of an issue about this. Thumb sucking does palette damage in extreme cases, not the average baby. And also baby who suck thumb in early age tends to sleep for 7-8 hrs and are calm by nature as they know how to sooth them self. May be if this habit stays till 1 year of age you can try by putting some bitter tasting thing over thumb. It works in most cases. All the best!

Question: My baby always sucking his finger how to avoid this
Answer: Hello Don't be harsh. I totally understand ur irritation but understanding y the child is sucking the thumb is important. It provides them comfort. If your going to shout this will increase baby s stress levels n the habit may prolong. Most children stop on their own. So let them find their own way or path to stopping this habit. Distract your child. There is always a pattern that is seen. Try n distract them if it's before sleeping then read a story sing a rhyme. This way the child will eventually stop. Talk to your baby. Having an adult conversation makes them feel important n grown up. Explain to them y it's bad. Praise your baby often create a stress free environment. This way the need for self comfort decreases. Find an alternative. Get a soft blankie or a toy to snuggle instead.
