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!

Question: Baby is sucking thumb continously even when he is not hungry. How to stop him from doing this
Answer: Hello dear, the habit of thumbsucking starts at the age of 3 months...so it can be stopped by distracting your baby by giving him some toys or by playing with him... Offer gentle reminders by removing his hand from his mouth... It generally stops when the baby uses his hands for other activities like crawling picking up objects or any other activity that involves the hand.. this habit of thumbsucking generally stops by the time they're 5months old..
