Thumb Sucking Baby Like Grand Ma's

Ever wonder why baby or "BIG Babies" like to suck their thumb? According to 'What to expect', there are few reasons why babies suck their thumb.

Babies are born to suck. Sucking is an inborn reflex for babies because it’s how they eat. So it’s definitely a good thing that your baby has figured it out.

Sucking calms your baby down. Even when you’ve just finished feeding your baby, she might still clamor for more sucking action. That doesn’t mean she’s ready to chow down again. In addition to suckling to fill their tummies, babies need “nonnutritive” sucking, the kind that mellows them out. It’s the whole reason we have pacifiers in the first place — sucking helps a baby calm down. Some babies, like your own little thumb sucker, love nonnutritive sucking more than others.

This is the baby I randomly saw her sucking her grand ma fingers during Gold Coast trip. So according to the article above, the baby are born to suck and it calms her down. Hmm... Does these theories apply to grown up guys too? Cos... HAHA
