At this age, it's their main way of exploring the world around them. They are just learning that they can control their arms and hands, and bringing them to their mouth on purpose is one of the first things they learn they can do. They'll be putting lots of things in their mouth to learn about them over the next many months. Just try to keep their little hands clean, they can get lint and stuff trapped in the crease between thier thumbs and first fingers because of the way they clasp right now, i just try to wipe that out several times a day. And any objects should be clean too. But, almost all babies are going to suck their hands at this age, whether they end up being thumb suckers or not.
