Thumb sucking prob.. n biting her lower lip.. she usually sucks her thumb during her sleep n when tryin to sleep, but when i carry n cuddle her to sleep, she doesnt suck her thumb, is thumb sucking a psycological reason??

i dont know why my baby is having the same prob also...

Thumb or finger sucking is a self soothing tool that babies use. If another option is available the baby then does not suck the thumb. Ensure that you feed your baby often, cuddle and hold so that she gets away from the habit. Forcing the thumb out or application of bitter ingredients or covering with a mitten will not really help.

apply wit food she dsnt lik on her thumb

Its all for comfort. Provide her an alternative like your hug or a small toy.
