Hi my 5 months old baby always keeps licking his fingers with almost no gap. Hd also keeps doing after the feed and sometime throw up due to this. Also these days he keeps touching everything so keeping fingers in mouth is also not safe. Any suugestions to stop this habit.

Hi Anu... it's very normal activity at this stage even my daughter doing the same... they keep on do this as they are entering oral phase... all we need to do keep their hands and fingers be clean always.... I use to have soft cloth daily to clean her hands and fingers then & there.... you can give small cotton towels for holding & you can give teether if he sucks well tats more safe and better than licking hands.. don't worry, this habit will go off as days pass by
