Am first time mom and my baby boy is 11 week old he weights around 5.5 kg . When i see him he seems very small and slim but docter says hez smart guy . Since two days he started sucking his thumb am little worried. Does sucking thumb reduces milk intake or is it normal and good . Is my baby boys smart or lacking behind when compared to others?

No it will not reduce feedings. It is probably something he did in utero. It is a natural soothing technique. Some babies suck fingers, some suck binkies, some don't suck anything but a breast or bottle. Every baby is different, but it is totally normal and will not alter his eating. Congratulations momma!
