2nd , she is always sucking her hand . Is this normal?
Thanks a lotttt .bye
I see many girls with labial agglutination. My take on this and what I do is supported by the medical literature, is to not do anything, for this is a normal variation and will be come unstuck naturally over time. I would more aggressively do something, like the estrogen cream, if she is having urinary tract infections. It is normal!
Sucking hands, toes, fingers and other things is normal, just like if you use a pacifier, that is normal too. Infants have strong non-nutritive reasons to just satisfy their sucking reflexes.
Good luck, Dr. olson
