    Hi ladies, dd has found her hands and feet and grabs every colorful thing in sight, but her thumb is still half tucked in, so when she's grabbing something, her thumb is not stretched out like the other four fingers, is that normal?

    Which also means she shoves two, sometimes four fingers (two from each hand :wacko:) into her mouth to suck instead of just using her thumb...

    Didn't worry me at first until mum noticed a friends 3 month old has his thumb out....

    Babies are all unique and do things differently. My DD is both right and left handed. Your LO may not of caught onto the concept of using her thumb or she may just prefer not to use it. I would not be concerned with it but if it's truly bothering you then make a doc appt and ask for the pediatricians' opinion.
