Hello, I am currently nursing my three month old exclusively and I am a little worried about her constant thumb sucking. She sucks her thumb when I'm holding her, when she wakes up in the middle of the night and even when she's breastfeeding (she will repeatedly break the latch and go for the thumb.) I'd say this has been going on for 2-3 weeks. I'm worried that it's because she feels lonely or needs more care. My DS is 3 now very high-maintenance right now. My DH is gone many evenings a week and there are times throughout the day I have to lay the baby down in a safe place to attend to his needs. Any thoughts on this? DS never sucked his thumb at all.
Thanks in advance!
