Q:

My 4 months old baby always sucking her thumb finger even she was not hungry. What is reason?



I faced with my son and doctor advised to start on semi solid as this is the early symptoms of teething. So, you can give some teethers to smooth her gums and start with some rice gunji one time a day as a beginning. If she digests with no spitting then you can continue. You can contact pediatrician as well.
