  • My daughter sucks on her hand and her fingers. She was born with a sucking blister on her hand from where she sucked on it in the womb, totally adorable xD

  • My duaghter did that. Now that she's older and teething again, she puts all four fingers in!

  • My sister did this when she was little. She would suck on her 2nd and 3rd fingers (not counting the thumb). It never caused any problems

  • I know a little girl who does this. She is 2 and is still doing it. She mostly only does it when she is sleepy though.

  • My son is going to be 4 months old on the 16th and he does this as well. I keep waiting for him to find his thumb. He seems content sucking on his other fingers though.
