A Bad Habit?

Sophie invented a new trick yesterday. She pulls her upper lip into her mouth with her tongue and sucks on it - tongue sticking out of her mouth. It doesn't seem like a good habit to me, but at the same time, it's a way for her to self-soothe. I'm afraid she's going to get a hickey on her upper lip, or a really bad chapped lip or something.

We noticed it yesterday afternoon, and every time she woke up in the night, or every time I put her back to sleep at night, I could hear her sucking her lip. She also just does it randomly if she feels like sucking.

What do you think???

She might get a hickey, but that's better than buck teeth. ;)

Too bad you probably don't have any school photos of me, you'd see what she'll have . . . I used to do the same thing, I always had really bad chapped lips, but that was like 2nd grade!

Interesting. I vote thumb or pacifier, but whatever works for Sophie, she's the boss.
