Question: how to prevent one year baby from thumb sucking .... plz suggest
Answer: Hi mommy baby sucking thumb/hand is a perfectly natural, self-reliant way for a child to soothe themselves. I think people make to much of an issue about this. Thumb sucking does palette damage in extreme cases, not the average baby. In studies it has been found that baby who suck thumb in early age tends to sleep for 7-8 hrs and are calm by nature as they know how to sooth them self.  May be if this habit stays till 1 year of age you can try by putting some bitter  tasting thing over thumb. It works in most cases. All the best!

Question: How to stop baby from thumb sucking
Answer: Hi dear, Thumb sucking is a common habit among babies. Babies have natural rooting and sucking reflexes, which can cause them to put their thumbs or fingers into their mouths. Because thumb sucking makes babies feel secure, some babies might eventually develop a habit of thumb sucking when they're in need of soothing or going to sleep. Thumb sucking isn't usually a concern until a child's permanent teeth come in. At this point, thumb sucking might begin to affect the roof of the mouth (palate) or how the teeth line up. The risk of dental problems is related to how often, how long and how intensely your child sucks on his or her thumb. To stop your baby you need yo identify the triggers. If your child sucks his or her thumb in response to hunger, sleeo ,stress, identify the real issue and provide comfort in other ways — such as with a hug or reassuring words. You might also give your baby a small pillow,a hanky or stuffed toy to squeeze. This will help you.

If your going to shout this will increase baby s stress levels n the habit may prolong. Most children stop on their own. So let them find their own way or path to stopping this habit. Distract your child. There is always a pattern that is seen. Try n distract them if it's before sleeping then read a story sing a rhyme. This way the child will eventually stop. Talk to your baby. Having an adult conversation makes them feel important n grown up. Explain to them y it's bad. Praise your baby often create a stress free environment. This way the need for self comfort decreases.
