Reader Question about Kid's hand

Here is a reader question that might help other parents:

"My daughter is two years old. She recently has been keeping her left hand clenched but will use her thumb and first finger. She will open it when you ask her to and when she is sleeping. She used to carry a lot of things in her hands at all time. I was concerned if it was just a phase or something more serious."

Jared C. Rogers, M.D.
Medical Director, Hospital Medical Affairs
Methodist Medical Center of Illinois:

"It may be simply a quirky habit like other things that young children
sometimes develop. However, I would recommend having her evaluated by her physician. It could be a result of some underlying tendon or bone problem."
