Index Soother

Posted on: March 29, 2010

If you had a close-up of Niko’s finger you may wonder why it has become somewhat raw and calloused. Put that way it sounds soft of painful, but he doesn’t seem to be bothered by the callous that has formed covering pretty much the whole length of his pointer finger. I try to keep it moisturized, which helps a little, but mostly he just sucks it right off.

Take a look at the picture below and multiply that snapshot many times over in one day and it results in one well worn little finger. Most babies suck a soother or maybe their thumb, but not our little guy. He’s developed quite an affinity for his index. Actually at times he gets it in there so far that he actually gags himself. It’s rare, but I’ve seen it happen a few times. Post gag reflex, he’s in the need for some self-soothing. And what’s his method of choice? Index finger, take your position please.
