Your Baby Sucks Fingers More Than Before

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

At this age, your child is able to freely use her hands and limbs. Your baby sucking her fingers is considered as a positive trait in terms of muscle coordination. Encourage more movements so that she gains strength and agility in terms of muscle coordination.



    Your baby sucking her hands: What you need to know

    You need to control this action of finger sucking. You will notice your baby is sucking her thumb, inititally, its fine but after a certain age this practice should be curbed. Make sure your baby's hands are always clean. You can take out time during the day so as to teach other hand movements to your little toddler which are not unhealthy. Your baby's sucking reflexes will stop as she grows older.
