Hello. My 24 month old baby girl has the habit of thumbsucking. she indulges in thumbsucking at bedtime and when she is sleepy. I have tried applying bitter taste to her thumb but that has not helped. How can I get rid of this habit.

Its common and normal in babies of this age. As she'll grow in age it'll stop eventually
