Fist In Mouth

My LO constantly tries to fit her fist into her mouth... She's 10 weeks... Could this be early signs of teething (she also dribbles all the time) or is it just normal behaviour for this age?

normal she has found out that she has hands and they feel nice in her mouth!

my son did this for about a month at 8 weeks and is a complete dribble-monster - at 7months we still have no teeth

perfectly normal...all part of her becoming aware of the world around her....just wait till she realises they actually belong to her and that she has control over what they can do wink

my DS is 10 wks too and does the same, i worry that sometimes he will make himself sick!! he is a boy who loves his fingers, no need for a dummy in this house!
