Question:My baby is always taking her finger in her mouth... What to do...?
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.
