    in / inside

    Are the following sentences correct as to the usage of 'in' and 'inside':
    "Don't put your finger in your mouth!
    Don't put your finger inside your mouth!"
    Thank you!

    Re: in / inside

    I'm not sure about "correct", but to me, the first option sounds more natural.

    Others may disagree/correct/boo/etc.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
