Q:

my little one has started to suck this thumb. should I allow it or stop. I don't want it to turn into a habit.



aditi manja

it's okay ramya. he is too young right now to form these habits. he has begun exploring his fingers now. let him enjoy. you can introduce bright rattles or toys now to distract your baby. just make sure it is always clean and safe and your baby is supervised. Habit forming thumb or finger sucking when they become toddlers is associated with other issues like not getting enough attention from parents and so on. So don't worry right now and enjoy with your lil one :-) Sheeba Vijesh Asha Chaudhary Priya Sood Sheeba Rizvi any advice here?

baby is too young.. sucking fingers n thumbs are normal in babies...  a way of creating hand n mouth co ordination to take food in the future..  try to distract baby..

Ramya Bhargavi its fine.. this is a process of growing up.. let the child be.. slowly after some time when baby begins to realse things then you can try to stop it..but gently..

this is normally. .baby will leave this habit automatically. ..
