Q:

hiii my baby is 4th month old and now she has started sucking her thumb. every time she sucks her thumb does it mean she is hungry?? and should I stop her from placing her thumb in her mouth??

Baby's have a strong suckling reflex and they tend to put everything in the mouth. Do not pull her hand out. If it is feeding time do feed the baby as it may be an indication that the baby is hungry.
