1 year old baby
So your query is about thumb sucking habit?
@Monika Naidu it's very common and natural in all babies. It's the way they know about the things. No need to worry. Whenever you see baby is keeping hand in mouth gently remove it. That's it. For that you no need to do anything or to worry. Babies when small keep hands and later slowly will keep everything in mouth ( whatever they come across). This is how they explore things and able to know things. Please buy baby some plastic or rubber rattles. It's not due to hunger nor its a bad habit.
it is an important milestone to suck hands. baby found out that she has hands! like Roopashree Siddireddy said, gently remove and place small rattles in her hand. it is not due to hunger...
that's normal... babies hands are more sensible than eyes..
to observe everything comes in their hand or the hand they take it n start sucking. ..
