    Is it normal for babies to try and eat their whole hands?!

    Evan has one hand with only the thumb and little finger which he can fit in whole and he is close to eating the other hand!

    He also keeps trying to fight off my boob and eat his hand instead, despite being hungry. I'm thinking about getting a baby straitjacket!

    Ha ha! Yes it's completely normal. It's a developmental thing, plus their exploring their little world. Hands are the first things to get wedged in their mouths xx

    Yup! My wee man loves his hand! He's going through a phase of refusing the bottle. He just wants to play with it and eat his hands!
