Is your baby doing this?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Nonie just turned 3months and she is constantly putting her hands in her mouth. I normally would take this as a sign of hunger but she does it when she isn't hungry. Seems a bit early for teething. Any other babies doing this and what do u think?

Not too early for teething. Ben has just broken a tooth through and he's 3 months. It could just be that she has the ability to get her hands in her mouth now and it's a fun thing to do

Naomi, too, spends a lot of time with her hands in her mouth these days!

Lilah likes chewing on her fist too!  Totally normal I think.  :)

 Mine does this as well.  I can't tell if he's teething or not, but his hands are in his mouth almost all the time when he's not sleeping or eating.

Cady, too!  If she's not grabbing at toys, her hands are busy exploring her mouth.  :-)

 HA! Sophie too! She wants her feet so bad. She's started "clapping" with her feet now. OP, yes we're all about the chewing hands right now. See? I have an amber teething necklace on its way to our house now, so hopefully that will help with any teething pain.

My dd is doing this constantly!  She is so drooly and her little fists get all red.  So different than my ds at that age.  But I also notice that if she is full, she won't use me to comfort nurse like my ds did.  I am forever trying to nurse her cause her big bro trained me that way, and she is like no mom...I'll suck my fists instead.
