Question: How to stop sucking thumb from baby's mouth?

1 Answers
Answer: Hi  It’s perfectly natural for newborns to suck their thumb. Sucking is an inborn reflex for babies because it’s how they eat. use pacifiers. However as your child grows, too much of either can disturb the alignment of your child’s teeth and even the structure of her mouth, so you’ll definitely want to wean him/her off before permanent front teeth come in, around age six.

Question: how to stop thumb sucking
Answer: Hello dear this is normal that many babies will have habit of sucking thumb.. DO try to limit the time that your child sucks his thumb to his bedroom or in the house, not in public. Explain to him that this is a bed activity during nap time and at night. DON'T turn it into a confrontation. "Don't tell your child, ‘You cannot suck your thumb anymore,'" "Try to recognize him and praise him when he's not sucking his thumb instead of criticizing when he is." DO talk to your child about her thumb sucking or finger sucking. "Help your child understand that when she is ready to stop, you will be there to help," DO practice self-awareness with your child. "When your child is sucking his thumb, ask him, ‘Do you know you are sucking your thumb now?'" Hayes says. "If he says no, help him recognize that, and find another way to soothe him if he needs it, like a blanket or stuffed animal."
