Answer: Hii follow below steps to remove thumb sucking habit of baby. Don’t worry
Babies find thumb sucking comforting and after a certain age give up the habit on their own.
Distract her by engaging in some toy or activity.
Using force will not help
Forcefully pulling thumb out of baby's mouth is likely to make her suck her thumb more often.
Use a substitute
Pacifier can be a good option on which the baby can suck instead of her own thumb.
It takes time to get rid of a habit. Keep explaining to her why it's not a good habit.
