My baby boy is 3 months old now and he constantly chews on his fist and especially his thumb... sometimes he does this when he is bored or hungry but i am really concerned about this behaviour. How can i make him avoid this habit?? Will cbewing on his fingers disfigure his teeth formation???

Hi,baby sucking fist is completely natural ad they explore new things via mouth so they tend to put everything in mouth.. it is a concern only if he continues this post 6 months.. Till then let him enjoy.. else u can cover the fist with gloves
