hi vijayalakshmi, no worries, it is an important milestone for babies... dont try to stop it.. just offer small rattles, toys etc.. baby will get over this behaviour...


same problem with me...my baby is also 3month old.


I used to wash his hand n mouth 4-5 times in a day..

At this age all are babies same things..even my baby also do same all the time fingers in his mouth....dear do one thing when your baby going fingers in mouth.you can distract your baby mind...play some song,also playing with baby.. .

it happens at this stage don't worry or stop yr kiddo..just try to distract the baby with rattle or tether etc..

Baby is learning hand and mouth co ordination and also..trying to feel his own hand. It's natural. Don't worry..Just gently remove hands every time by saying no. Wipe mouth, cheeks and below neck. Give him some soft rattles. Play gym will be best to give.
