My 4month old son has started sticking his fingers in his mouth, normally I wouldn't mind this since he hasn't sprouted any teeth yet, except now he is gagging himself and causing himself to vomit. He has a binkie, teethers, and all types of toys to go along with the oral fixation stage, but he will take them for a few minutes and then spit them out or throw them down and go right back to the fingers. He has been doing this for about 2weeks now, and he already has a reflux problem (since birth) that he is not helping. I just don't want him to have to be swaddled or living in those onesies with hand covers all the time. Has anyone else had this problem with their child? Or does anyone have any ideas how to stop this behavior?
