    Default Trying to suck hand and very frustrated.

    My baby is 14 weeks and often gets very worked up when he tried to get his hand into his mouth. I really don't like him getting so frustrated. I thought they are supposed to feel soothed sucking their hand? Any other babies like that? What can I do to help him?

    I just help my baby by holding and guiding his hand to his mouth.

    I agree with Hokey Pokey. Plus this is Bubba's natural developmental response - he knows what he wants to do, but his lil body just hasn't caught up yet! Have you heard of 'The Wonder Weeks'? It's a great tool when trying to figure out Bubba's moods n responses; instead of focusing on physical developmental milestones, the authors look at neurological or psycholocial 'leaps' that all babies are making at certain ages. Doesn't 'tell' u how u should be raising ur child (like many other any books), but gives u suggestions, games in particular, u can play with ur baby to help ease their frustration during each 'leap'.
