don't stop him... it is a kind of their entertainment. just over look the myht

Akansha Sharma

he is just exploring his body..nothing to worry..just make sure his hands are clean..use flowing water instead of sanitizers for babies

Sonia Gupta

no need to stop..they are exploring their fingures hands..as the teething start a slowly they will start suckling and wud start with mouthing things arnd..dats the way they learn and grow.. no need to worry

Neeta Nihale

it's normal.. no need to get worried.. it's just a milestone. .. you can distract your baby by offering him teethers n other toys.. also you can  keep out his finger while playing or talking with him.. all you can do is distract sometime.. but can't stop him.. as it's the way they learn hand n mouth Co ordination ..


Its a phase so go easy. Baby is exploring. You can try to distract baby by holding finger. giving a toy too
