My babe is teething.
More accurately, she is getting all four of her eye teeth at one time. One has broken through and the other three are still pushing on her gums.
Her mouth hurts.
My baby that wouldn’t suck on a pacifier and never sucked her thumb, even in utero, started chewing her thumb this week.
If you’re wondering, I’m ignoring it. I think the thumb chewing will stop when the mouth pain stops, so I’m not at all worried about it becoming a long term behavior.
Anyway, when thumb sucking is this cute, how could anyone object?
