How to quit?
Let’s hear what the experts say.
According to survey research, 19 of the babies aged 1 to 6 months.
2% of babies have the habit of eating hands; 10% of babies who are 3 years old still love to eat hands; and among 3 years and 6 months old, the proportion of keeping habit of eating hands has dropped to 7.
It seems that the habit of eating hands is really a common phenomenon among babies.
