Answer: It 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. In studies it has been found that baby who suck thumb in early age tends to sleep for 7-8hrs and are calm by nature as they know how to sooth them self. May be if this habbit stays till 1year of age you can try by putting some bitter tasting thing over thumb. It works in most cases.

Question: Is it OK to give pacifier to baby when she sucks her fingers nd thumb?
Answer: Hii Pacifier is not good for health. . I will personally advise u to avoid taking Pacifier . That is the main reason if many types of infection in baby . Pacifier can be still fine if baby is taking it till 6 months as till that they can stay in one place and we can assure its hygiene. But once he will start walking or rolling then it will be impossible to maintain Pacifier hygiene. Sucking on a pacifier can easily become a habit, and many parents don't introduce one because they don't want to deal with having to take it away later  Don't give a pacifier to a baby who is having problems gaining weight. So if your baby is having difficulty nursing (or if you're having trouble maintaining your milk supply), it's probably best to do without a pacifier, at least for now. You'll also want to consider having your baby go without a pacifier if he's had repeated ear infections. If you can maintain Pacifier u can buy Philips or chicco U can make baby wear mittens so dat c ll not suck fingers.
