Baby sucks his finger kids

My child constantly sucked on one finger and I began to worry. I was scared that this was a sign of some disease, that I could not wean him of a bad habit. So I had to get into the problem, why is this happening.

Why does the baby suck his finger?


As psychologists say, this is how the unrealized sucking instinct manifests itself, the child thus calms himself, reduces the feeling of loneliness, lulls himself. I also noticed that my baby, having sucked a finger, fell asleep after a while. Experts are convinced that thumb sucking is a congenital phenomenon, because even before birth, babies can do it.

My child began to actively suck his finger since three months, when he began to deliberately bring a pen to his mouth. As explained to me, so he tries to satisfy the sucking instinct.

There are babies who suck up the milk quickly, having time to get enough, while others do it slowly. My child quickly sucked the amount of milk he needed, so he sucked his finger. I realized that during breastfeeding, you need not to wean him while he continues to suck, even if he is already full.

And when he started to get the bottle out of the bottle, I made sure that there was a small hole in it. This is necessary so that the child, when feeding, shows zeal and eats all the portion he needs.


What is the harm of this habit?


It may have appeared due to a birth injury or due to the fact that one of the parents was not very attentive. I was very worried about this, especially due to the fact that the surrounding people looked at it all disapprovingly. It was a shame to go for a walk with a child.

And if he continued to suck his finger, being in kindergarten or even school, he would not be allowed to pass, constantly mocking and mocking. Because of this habit, even teeth can grow abnormally if the child sucks a finger after five years.

How to wean?



It is best to try not to teach a child to this. I did not succeed in this, so I had to put a lot of effort into weaning him. I smeared his finger with salt or mustard, put a special lacquer on it, then I tried to remove my finger from my mouth imperceptibly, allowed me to suck only at home, I distracted him with my fingers playing games (palms, forty and others).

By the age of three, he had almost unlearned himself from the sucking habit, although experts say that there is nothing to worry about.
