It will be a comfort to him and a way to self soothe. You don't need to do anything

My 10 week old baby has been doing this for a few weeks now - I don't do anything apart from wipe the dribble from her hands and her chin!

It’s perfectly fine I would guess. My 4 month old also does this. Thinks it’s a way of soothing her gums as the teething process begins. Anything she can get her hands on will do fine - including Sophie, my hand, edge of dummies, end of the muslin cloth etc etc. Shes quite content sitting in her bouncer with her hand in her mouth watching Hey Dugee.

Another hey dugee fan here. My baby is 10 weeks old and cranes her neck to watch hey dugee (her dad introduced her to this, not me I hasten to add!)

Think I love Hey Dugee more than my baby does! 🙈

Well I wasn't going to admit to that especially not to my husband, but so do I?!
