Q:

My 3 month old baby putting her hands into mouth..how can we stop doing her this ?



aditi manja

don't :-) it's part of their development. your baby is discovering her fingers. let her enjoy. just make sure she is supervised, so that she doesn't put anything random into het mouth and her hands are as clean as possible.

also make sure her nails are trimmed, otherwise she can scratch her gums.

Gently remove hands whenever you find her hands inside mouth. It's natural and nothing to worry. Baby is knowing things as Aditi said. Give some rattles to play. soft edged rubber or plastic toys. Best invest will be "play gym" to play and also help in baby's development.

yeah play gym is an excellent idea !

this is very normal. what you can do is try distract her by playing with her or chatting with her.
