Q.

Worried

Good day

My daughter is 7 months old and I have noticed that she does not put anything in her mouth. Babies normally when you give them something to play with take it to their mouths.

Even when she teeths she doesnt put anything in her mouth.

I bought Teething biscuittes and Flings soft chips but she also does not bring it to her mouth. Is this normal.

Most babies do put things in their mouths but if your baby does not do this do not be too worried. As long as she can sit by herself now and her development, growth and weight gain are good there should not be any need to worry.If you continue to be worried about your baby's development please ask your paediatrician to see her.
