Hello,

Baby will touch number of places while playing, which develops different germs, dust and lot many harmful things.

If baby will suck thumb the germs, insects and different harmful things will reach to tiny tummy and this can cause any infection and serious health conditions.

It may cause life threatening health issues also.

But baby will not stop sucking thumbs as it makes them feel good when they are teething.

Some babies give indication of hunger when the suck thumb.

So, you can not force your baby to stop sucking thumb.

All you have to do is take care of proper hygiene to avoid any further health problems.BigGrin
