Quoting Mama❍Moon:" Does he have all his teeth? How long has he been doing this? As for not getting over his sickness thats ... [snip!] ... time, I'm not sure how you could stop that short of making him wear gloves or something. But he will most likely out grow it. "
Yes he does have all of his teeth, and he has been doing it since he was 4 months old. He weaned himself from his pacifier and switched to his fingers. I have him wearing socks on his hand now, and he has been great, but I am not sure how naptime, and bedtime will be. I understand the germs thing though. He has had the stomach flu, and just can't get rid of it. He has had diarreah for 11 days now. Been doing the BRAT diet, and it isn't helping.
