Divu at that age i wouldnt worry to much, thumb sucking if a form of self comfort. She will use her thumb when upset or if she wakes in the night to settle herself again. Many young ones grow out of it on their own. She may be beginning to have a tooth coming through so is sucking more to help ease the pain. My son uses a pacifier, 1- he chews on it when he is teething and 2- it helps keep his milk down as he is a cronic spiller. Honestly though its a little early to be concerned.

Yea sounds like she may be teething. Hunter was really good at solids then when teething started he went off them for several weeks, I just kept offering them just in case he wanted them but topped him up with bottles again. He started eating really well once the tooth popped through and now another one is coming!!! LOL. As long as she is still looking healthy and you arnt concerned about anything else, just let her guide you. Unless babys are sick they wont let themselves go hungry
