No advice but just wanted to say dont worry i havent thought about it for about 30 odd years but i remember doing the same thing!!!!It must be better than biting nails and i developed that habit later on, probably due to the fact that my parents wouldnt let me suck my hair!!!!

No advice either but i do wonder, what is it they have about hair? DS (8 months) is fascinated by people's hair, to the extent that lately he's using mine and DH's hair as a comforter. When he's touching it he starts to suck his tongue contentedly. As you say though, it gets to be a habit and lately the only way for him to go back to sleep when he wakes at night if he is touching it. Aaaghhh!!!
