Teething toy vs fingers

Recently, Ayden always bite his lips and also suck his fingers.

He’ll either bite or suck his lips. Am puzzled why is it so as Ethan doesn’t go through this stage. I posted the above picture on my FB and most of my friends said he might be teething with itchy gums except for one who cheekily said he’s like that because he wants my boobs (Joanna you know it’s YOU! :P)

Anyway, we bought a teething toy for him the other day but he doesn’t know what to do with it.

Ethan ‘fed’ him the toy, letting him bite on it.

We were so glad to finally see him biting on his teething toy. At least now he wont be biting his fingers….

But I spoke too soon. He still prefers his fingers to his teething toy >_<

In the end, the teething toy stays in the fridge while Ayden’s fingers stays in his mouth! @[email protected]
