My dd just turned 4 and ever since she has had this "thing" about putting her fingers in her mouth (and other objects). She hasn't done this since she was 2. I was kind of wondering if maybe her last set of molars were starting to come in but this seems to early (I thought they came in at age 5 or 6??). Do you think this behavior may be teeth related, or could it just be a phase? I've asked dd if her gums were sore but she says, no, which may or not mean "no."
