There are many reasons babies suck their hands/fingers....most of the time it was a self-comforting habit especially also if they have to cry a lot before they are put to the breast.I t may then become a habit. What you need to do mums is to ensure you are breastfeeding your baby frequently at least every 2 - 3 hours. There is no need to wear glove...pacifier is even a worse alternative. Try and wash her hands frequently to prevent introduction of germs and IGNORE THE HABIT......It will go away....Make sure the baby feeds well.....Remove the hand and give breast milk when due...The baby should feed 8 - 12 times a day on breast milk and if adequately fed should sleep 2 - 3 hours after feeds though the duration gradually reduces as baby gets older

It is not going to have any negative effect. Breast milk from the breast does not go sour. Only the one that was expressed and stored inappropriately can go bad.

Milk is coming out of my breast, I did a pregnancy test and I'm not pregnant. What can be the cause?
  • Best Answer
Sorry about your experience. One reason you might be experiencing Milk coming from your breast is over secretion of Prolactin. It is medically referred to as Hyperprolactinemia. Hyperprolactinemia is a state characterized by high levels of a hormone called prolactin in the blood. Prolactin is produced by the pituitary gland and plays a vital role in the development of the breasts during pregnancy. While hyperprolactinemia is considered perfectly normal during pregnancy and breastfeeding, it can occur at other times due to disease and medication use. Hyperprolactinemia can affect both woman and men, resulting in irregular menstrual periods and erectile dysfunction, among other things. Other causes may include: Hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone levels) Cirrhosis of the liver Chronic kidney failure Antidepressants (Anafranil, Norpramin) Antipsychotics (Haldol, Zyprexa, Risperdal) Antihypertensives ( Verelan, Calan, Covera-HS, Isoptin) Antinauseals (Reglan, Primperan, Lexapram) Acid H2 blockers (Tagamet, Zantac) Estrogen
