Babies need to suck. It's a comfort thing for them and there's nothing more convenient than a body part, usually a hand, finger, arm, etc.
As the child gets older (I would personally say 1yr and up, but I'm sure others have different opinions), you would want to gently discourage this behavior, if they don't decided to stop it themselves, but as a baby, it's perfectly normal.
