hi Sarika ! has he used a pacifier or used to take bottle feed ? if yes for how long? since he has got in the habit of sucking lip.. u could politely remind him to stop . when he is asleep just make him stop doing it.. keep him occupied, he would gradually stop doing it. do not scold him, as he is doing it unintentionally.

hi thanks for the reply. my son never used pacifier and he used bottle till the age of 2 1/2yrs . when his teeth were coming he used to have itching & then he started putting lip later he started sucking it . Now he can't sleep without sucking lip and when he sleeps I take out his lip but again in his sleep he starts sucking. Because of sucking his lip it's becoming big and his front teeth coming out. I'm really worried do you think I should consult dentist. please suggest
