  • If he is teething, it's perfectly normal. If he's not teething, it's perfectly normal. If you are worried and don't want him to do it, pull his hand out of his mouth and tell him no.

  • My little boy just turned 18 months and if we don't let him have a pacifier or teether he pretty much keeps his fingers in his mouth. If not his fingers its something else. I wouldn't worry about it. I figure it just teething.
