My youngest was breech the ENTIRE pregnancy. After she was born she sucked her thumb AND her toes. I believe that is what she did in utero. It's COMPLETELY normal. No worries!

way normal! my 5 month old sucks his thumb and loves his feet! instead of using the binky he uses his toes its kind of awesome cause i think getting him to stop sucking his toes will be a little easier then getting him to stop sucking on his binky

My son did that for a while when he discovered his toes.. He still does it occasionally now just for a reaction (he is 18m and he learned early that I don't care for feet, no matter how pretty or clean they are!) It's normal and just a phase. He'll grow out of it eventually.

Baby hell, my oldest, who is now 14 yrs old, sucked/chewed on his toes until he 7 or 10 yrs old.



You could buy the nasty tasting "no bite" fingernail polish - thats what i've done.

totally natural all babies do it. baby is just exploring his body discovering different parts.

My daughter doesn't suck her thumb but loves to chew on her toes and any one's toes for that matter. If you have your feet up she will crawl over stand next to your feet then start chewing them if you let her. totally gross and funny at the same time. It is normal they just like to chew and suck it is a normal reaction. It feels good on there gum's and they have that need to suck from when they are a baby. I just give my daughter a toy and she starts to chew on it instead.

totally normal!! my daughter is a major thumb sucker and goes for her toes sometimes. it doesnt hurt them at all to be in that position. i know it looks uncomfortable to you and i because there is no way i could do that lol, but babies are way more limber than us. they are exploring their bodies and just found something cool lol. nothing to worry about. just a cute baby trick!
