My daughter is 3 1/2 months and is getting her first 2 teeth (at the same time). She can't really hold a teether and she refuses pacifiers. So she chews on her fingers. I can't keep them out of her mouth for longer than a minute. The problem is, she sticks 2 or 3 fingers in her mouth at a time and gags herself. She's constantly puking up her formula because she shoves her fingers down her throat. I don't know what to do to keep her hands out of her mouth. Is this normal? It can't be. It really worries me. I don't know what to do. Or if there's anything I *can* do. I'm lost.
Its normal for babies and even toddlers to gag themselves, try giving her a cold wash rag or just a blanket might work, if you put them over her hands it might help her from not gagging. Obviously just keep an eye on her when doing this
