Hi @Wally90. I might have a more relevant anecdote for you: my 3mth old has found his hands and yesterday I had to stop and remove his hands from his mouth twice as he was gagging. I thought he was just over enthusiastically sucking on these weird things he's found attached to him, but he has been under the weather for a week or so with a cold so maybe his throat is a bit scratchy. I'm not too concerned as he doesn't do it all the time

At 3mths I would be more inclined to think she just doesn't understand the relationship between how big her mouth is and how big the things she is putting in it.
She is still learning and prob just doesn't realise in order to stop she needs to pull back her own hands. I wouldn't think much of it just yet.
My dd sucks on toys, spoons fingers etc and accidentally goes too far all the time. Just part of the learning experience and discovery of hands.

Mine also was doing this a lot around 3 mths, she'd stick both hands in her mouth and gag. As a PP said, I don't think they recognize the relationship between their hands and mouth hence don't get the consequence. She is now 6 months and the behaviour has pretty much stopped.

Katelyn was doing it as a baby, not little though, I think it was more like 9 montha - though I cant remember! I think for her it was an accident initially, then sort of like as playing with her body thing, like she'd do it, gag, then laugh. She only did it for a period of a few weeks thankfully!
