  • Have you asked him why?

  • If you're worried mention it to his doctor. It could just be a soothing mechanism if he learned it as an infant.

  • It does sound like his soothing technique. Maybe you can ease him onto a different one.

  • Maybe it's a claim to him. My children are huggers and kissers they will hug and kiss anyone!
