If you have a thumb sucker what are your plans on getting them to stop the habit? Just curious. My 17 month old uses her thumb only when she is tired. Just looking for when and how you plan or did get them to stop.
If he is still sucking his thumb at 3 I will think about getting him to break it. For now I have no issue with him sucking on his thumb. My ped said most kids outgrow it on their own around 3. DD used to rock for self-soothing and only does it every once in a while now that she is closer to 3.
He also only sucks on his thumb when he has his blanket....take the blanket away and I think he will stop.
My daughter is a big time thumb sucker - 20 months. I have no desire to try and stop her yet. It does something for her and I just don't see the need to fight it. Will re-explore the idea as she gets older but I trust she will stop when she's done, not too worried about it.
