Thumb sucking or finger sucking is a habit that goes with time. My son also used to suck his thumb till he was 4 years old. But I always used to take out his thumb Hygienically I used to clean his hands with Mamaearth wet wipes because they are soft and natural. The ingredients are natural and safe on kids.

Hi there, as per my doc... Thumb sucking is a self pacifier for the child... If he does that it is a good thing... Later when kid grows up will know how to pacify self... Let the child do it.... Even after long time if child doesn't stop we use to apply neem oil on all fingers (grany trick) for stopping that habit... Happy parenting

thumbsucking is normal in babies and toddlers... and will remain uptill 3-4 years ... and they stop thumbsucking on their own by the age of 4-6... if they don't stop by the age of six years... it indicates some emotional problem with the baby and you can consult a pedodontist to intervene it.
