Q:

my 4 months son started sucking fingers constantly? he shouts a lot if we remove his finger? how to overcome from this?



Do not remove his finger. Suckling is a natural reflex and it is also a way for him to self soothe. He will outgrow the habit on his own. By forcing him you are going to just make the habit stronger.
