sucking for comfort

Good luck with your baby's op. My little girl was born with a blister on her hand from sucking it inside me, and I really struggled in the first few weeks with nurses etc telling me she was hungry when I'd just fed her. I wish I'd known that lots of babies do like to suck for comfort! We used to let her suck mine and my husband's scrupulously clean fingers, and she found her thumb after a few months. My husband used to lie with her on his chest and his finger in her mouth which gave me and my nipples a well deserved break!:lol:
