Good Health of an infant begins with the well-being of the mother. It has been known for a long time that nursing an infant with breast milk is the best and most complete form of nutrition for infants.

The mother's milk protects the infants from wide range of diseases. Breastfed infants are said to be healthy and stronger with well-developed immune systems to fight infection thereby lowering the rates of chronic childhood diseases. Hence there is no real substitute to mother's milk. 

Breastfeeding allows the mother and baby to emotionally bond in a special way, as it also meets both the nutritional and nurturing needs.

The question that is often asked by parents is whether thumb sucking is normal phenomena in their newborn baby. Well, it is found that some infants begin sucking their thumb while they are still in their mother’s womb.

Thumb sucking is a normal and a natural instinct in babies. However this non-nutritive sucking is believed by doctors to be done for comfort and survival. Sucking for a new born baby brings food and this food brings comfort. 

Research has found that approximately 70% to 90% of infants suck their thumb. Most of these children however gradually stop on their own between the ages of 3 and 6.
