thanks for the tag @63729b593f31520016a69b80 :) .. hey upasana it is very common among this age group dear..  it will be in vain inspite of many efforts..  baby at this stage has started exploring his hands as a part of his body..  it will vanish with the time being..  my daughter also puts her fingers in mouth after the feeds and all i do is divert her mind and take the fingers out..  so its nt because of hunger :)

hello..
As all ladies said- its a habit of baby to discover new things..sometyms permit him to do n sometyms tell him Noooo- he ll understand ur voice tone day by day n later he ll leave it fa sure..it takes some tym dnt worry...but keep in mind tht babies cultivate this as habit too..

Hey,  i have been through this for a long time.  Please work on it as immediate as possible.  Cover your baby's hands with mittens or socks.  Try to divert your baby when he/ she tries to put fingers or thumb in mouth.  Its easy to get rid of it in early stage,  as time will pass,  its difficult.

thank you for the tag @63729b593f31520016a69b80 ... upasana, it is common for babies this age to put hand in mouth... it is their way of discovering their surroundings, and do not need to do anything about it... as baby becomes capable of holding other objects in her hand, this will automatically stop... it is not because of hunger.. all babies do it...
