    Why Is She Chewing Her Clothes?

    aughter seems to be chewing (sucking) her clothes all the time? She actually pulls out her pacifier to suck on the clothes instead.

    Hi Babygirl224,

    yeah, that's normal. My son sucked on his socks that were on his feet all the time when he was a baby. She maybe teething and the grain of her clothes could be soothing the pain or uncomfortable feeling on her gums.

    Ava is doing that too. I always have a washcloth with her to dab the drool, and the cloths are nothing but chew toys to her.

    Babies chew on everything! I can barely get my sons clothes on because he is trying to put them in his mouth as I am dressing him. It is their way of exploring things.

    LOL!! Dd does the exact same thing. It's a race to get her outfits over her head before she tries to devour them.

    DS does that too, we have to hurry them on also, lol.
    I think they just like different things in their mouths! The socks especially, if he falls asleep with socks on, he usually wakes up with one in his mouth. So, he very rarely gets to sleep with socks on!
