Hi, my daughter is also 1. 9 yr and sucks her thumb like anything. All d measures to distract her out of it have failed. We try to be firm and its a strict no still she sucks it. Even in her sleep she will suck it. We tried a medicine prescribed by her paed also, but she vomitted soon after so scared to use it anymore. Dnt know what to do.

my child stopped thumb sucking when she was 2. 7. i had to work alot on it .but thumb guard really helped her alot .u can find it in American market .Google online and check .but first talk to ur child ,tell him u Ll play a game with him by locking his thumb and when he doesn't sucking for a day he gets a star or whatever is his favourite. never force a child into anything it just spoils things let him play it like a game he ll leave it himself. just have a strong heart .all the best.

Hi Rithika, whenever he does so say a firm NO and take out his finger try to make him understand that he should stop this is a bad habit in few days he will understand this.
