Its normal for babies this age... i give water teethers or such toys to my baby whenever she tries putting her fingers in mouth.. or i give her my hand and when she tries taking it in her mouth i just resist...

Hey Nikita it will take time, I am trying this from one month still no change. But keep trying. Some time he puts his both hands in mouth ;)

Hi Nikita! This is normal as the baby has now started to explore his own body. However, to see if the baby doesnt form a habit of sucking his thumb or fingers, take his hand off his mouth, engage him in some talks or sing to him.

This is normal Nikita. My 4. 5 month baby does the same. Try to distract baby first remove fingers & then by talking, playing with them, start soft music, by toys having sound.
