Gnawing on her fists????

My 8 week old keeps gnawing on her fists and i don't know why, i don't think it's hunger as i offer her milk but she doesn't want it.

Any ideas

Thanks ladies

  • Hi Mrs P

    It could be the start of teething. His her cheeks red?

  • My ds2 is 10weeks old and he does it as well - again he does when he is not hungry. He seems to chew on anything fleshy but it helps him to bring up wind. Are you bf? becasue I am sure my lo just likes the feeling of something fleshy to remind him of his favourite past time!!!
  • its probably teething, not that the teeth will make an apperance anytime soon but they may be moveing slightly in the gums, getting into position, it should settle after a few days x
  • My baby does this too.
    I've read that it is normal as baby is exploring it's hands and fingers. 'baby's first year' the netmums guide is my bible at the minute.

  • teething, discovering hands etc xxx
  • jacoc does this, but will go for most things he can sink his gums into :lol:
