2 Month Old Chews On His Tongue

User Profile
I have a 2 month old, and he is constantly chewing on his tongue and sticking it in and out of his mouth. Is that normal? Or is it bothering him? Anybody else have this problem? He'll literally eat for 5 min and then begin playing with his tongue and won't eat anymore!!!

It Is Okay!
Often when a baby begins to find its self tongue, fingers, voice, and toes the baby will play with it and experiment. It may just be that he will forget about his tongue till he begins eating again and then it is just a fun toy Smile
Don't worry he is smart enough to know when he is hungry and will eat even if he sometimes becomes distracted.
