Answer: They say that babies give up the habit of thumbsuking as they grow up. But not in all cases. My child is now 3yr old n still continues thumb sucking. therefore I wud suggest u start discouraging the little one from now on. Apply something bitter to the thump or keep the child engaged with activities during the day. There is a solution available in pharmacies to discourage thumb sucking. It needs to be applied on the thumb. Try that.
Answer: Baby is just 11 months old. Eventually they will stop sucking their thumb. You can try to avoid that habit in later point of time.

Question: How often a newborn should be feeded?? Whether it is correct to feed a child who is sleeping??
Answer: Hi. You need to breast feed your baby every 2 hours for now. As babies milk gets digested in 90 minutes and at 120 hours baby feels the hunger again. At night thus can be extended by one hour but do feed at night also or baby will be dehyderated. You need to feed baby when slept also. Babies are pro in sucking milk so if baby wiuld be hungry he would start sucking on its own once you drop a milk drop in his mouth. Good luck.
