I am lost on this, since my first child never did this..any suggestions will be appreciated, but please no bashing..
So my son is about 6 months old and he is a hand sucked, biter whatever you want to call it..he sucks and bites on left hand on the ring and middle fingers..he has now nawed on it that it is raw and blistered..i hate pacifers but we have been trying to give it to him and he really doesn't want it...I have started to take a sock and tape it around his hand so he can't bite on it...but he wont eat with the sock on, cause he usually takes a bite and sucks on his fingers and then takes another bite and soo on..I have no clue what to do..he doesn't have a dr. appt until next Tuesday..any sugggestions till then?

My grandson sucked on the side of his wrist from the day he was born..actually I have an US pic of him doing it at 30 weeks in utero. Anyway, the area would blister up. Dr said put long sleeves. When he couldn't get to the area he would just scream, not eat and be miserable. He never took a pacifier. Eventually the area built up a callus. He is now four and I had resigned myself to the fact he was probably going to suck it even in kindergarten. One thing, he sucked it from birth but it became worse when the events that lead the kids to be living with us happened.
