    Sucking on his arm?

    Advertisements
    Alec has recently started sucking on his arm so hard he leaves little hickeys...but when I try to fed him, he's not hungry, he just plays with the nipple and wont eat.

    He has also been drooling alot lately..

    Anyone know what this could be?

    Bella gives hickeys to me and Shawn (and probably anyone who has skin near her mouth)... I think its normal. At least I hope so. I wouldn't worry too much. Lots of babies are comforted by sucking.

    sucking is comforting to them, and his arm/fingers/etc... are close and wasy to suck on.

    Unless he isn't eating well I wouldn't be worried at all.

    Christopher has been doing the same thing the last couple days. I thought we were done with the teething thing for a couple months. He has all his top teeth in (we can see them through the gums) and some on the bottom.
    He starting cutting teeth, I'm pumping!

    Maddox will pull out his passie and suck on his arm instead.. When I was BFing he'd latch onto my arm and give me a hickie and he gives himself hickies all the time.. i think its funny..

    he'll put his whole fist in his mouth lol
