Question: My baby is six month old .he started sucking his thumb at the age of 3 month .how should I stop him for not sucking thumb
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.
And also 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!
