  1. Hello and thank you for writing us at Medimetry.Thumb sucking is harmless at this age and most infants do it.It usually subsides by the age of 2.Loose stools can be due to any viral or bacterial infection.Continue with breast feeds.Give baby Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS)after every loose motion to replace the fluid losses.If loose motions increase in intensity or are persistent baby may need probiotics or/and antibiotics.I hope this helps you.Keep us posted on your baby's health.Good day and take care!
