How To Help Your Child Quit Thumb Sucking

Why do children suck their thumbs?

The answer to this is very simple; children find a certain level of comfort and serenity while they suck their thumb. Most cases develop in the womb and are often triggered by something as simple as being nervous or as being scared of pain.

My advice is to not worry about it too much unless your child goes beyond the years after their permanent teeth begin to emerge. You can also browse online to find out about the ways of how to stop finger sucking in children.

This is usually somewhere around the age of six years. If thumb sucking goes beyond this point you should be looking for ways to help your child and encourage new habits to replace the thumb sucking.

Some people will tell you to wait but as you can tell from my experience that might not be such a good idea. You will be forced in some way to nag or punish your child but it will only make the situation worse, remember, they suck their thumbs for comfort and you punish them and nagging will only force them to entertain themselves and defeat your purpose.

What can you do?

Encourage your child to find other ways to find comfort and security, I gave my daughter a teddy bear firefighter and that did the trick after the second month. You can also try things like blankets or nightlight that plays relaxing music.
