Sucking is a natural urge in babies and is done for comfort. Most babies start to grow out of it naturally 6 month onwards ...some carry on till 2-3 years. It is a problem if it continues beyond that age and starts to affect jaw/teeth development. At present , for your baby , therefore it is not a big issue . As she starts eating/gets interested in other things..she is likely to wean off it. Hope this has been useful.
