Hello everyone, I have noticed for last couple of days that my 2 Months old son has started waving his right hand in front of his face first and then put it in his mouth and sucks.. is this activity normal?


Hi, yes it is totally normal. he exploring his hands n fingers.

Ya, it's normal. Wear baby handgloves to him.


Thanks for answering Meghna Tailor and Nisha!
pooja purandare just keep a watch and see if its just a phase. I can understand your concern. All the best dear.

hie pooja purandare this is quite normal..  he is exploring his hands and fingers. You can make him wear sanitised hand gloves and try to take his hand from going to the mouth..  :)


N if u don't want ur baby to put his hand in his mouth keep in a jungle gym . He will try to reach the toys tht will b hanging in front of him instead of putting his hand in his mouth.

No need . just try cleaning his hands clean.
