  • They are in her mouth, because she can lol. Its very common. How do you know she is not teething? 7 months is a teething age. Just because you cant see anything doesnt mean she isnt. :) Just make sure to wipe her hands off alot if she is crawling.

  • My son is almost 4 months and his hands are constantly in his mouth! But it soothes him! I can put him to bed wide awake and he'll suck on his hands for 10-15 minutes and fall asleep - usually 8-10 hours every night!
