    Hi,


    My son will be four months old on June 23, 2007 and for the past two weeks, he constantly has his hands in his mouth. He will try to put his entire fist into his mouth and I have noticed drooling has increased. However, there are no signs of his teeth coming in, but I think his hands are used a comfort mechanism. He will now fall asleep on his own with this hands in his mouth. I have not seen any signs that he is ready for solids. He is still is breast fed and is feeding well.
