Is it normal for babies to suck their feet?

Is it normal for babies to suck their feet?

Yes: By 6 months baby has gained enough crude control of arms and legs to explore them by mouthing. Fingers (by 4-5 mo) and toes&feet (by 6months) are readily available teething objects. Any mouthing at this age is considered a simple self soothing or self play. As the child ages, their interest in tasteing objects (to program their brain) can be troublesome. Bugs on the floor are fair game. ...Read more

Harmless habits: Most human beings discover their own way of calming themselves and relaxing. As long as the habit is not harmful, even odd and unusual habits do not imply psychological or mental disorder. In this case, thumb sucking should not be harmful, unless you or other bed-mates are bothered by it. If you are going to abandon him because of this, then I suppose your boyfriend may want to try to stop. ...Read more

Is it normal for my 3m old to never suck on a pacifier? He will spit it out after 5 seconds, and have tried multiple kinds. He does suck on his fingers

Is it normal for my 3m old to never suck on a pacifier? He will spit it out after 5 seconds, and have tried multiple kinds. He does suck on his fingers

Hard to retain: A 3 mo kid enjoy a pacifier as much as any other. What they don't have is the ability to reach up and push it back in or hold it in until they are older. For some it is easy to retain because they sort it out early, others not. Just because it came out doesn't mean they planned it. His fingers are easier to catch, as they stay close and don't get lost. ...Read more

My 14months son has white stains on his top teeth. He sucks his thumb. He 'brushes' them without toothpaste. Is this normal?

Not normal: If the teeth did not come in this way, then this is the start of tooth decay. If they did come in this way then they are malformed. Regardless, you need to have your child evaluated by a pediatric dentist. Also you should be brushing their teeth for them. A 14 month old is not skilled enough to brush their own teeth. Thumb sucking will not cause stains but can change his bite. ...Read more
