Hi.. I was surprised and worried at the same time to see no recent post about thumb sucking here! My daughter is 9 months old now and she has been sucking her thumb since she ws 5 and half months old . Our doc said not to worry Itz normal for babies to suck their thumb and she will grow out of her habit once she finds something else to soothe herself. I tried to stop her in the beginning but in vain.. now she sucks her thumb mostly when she sleeps. Has any mom gone through the same thing? I don't want her habit to worsen what do I do??

I have 5 months baby girl nd I too faced the same problem. I used to put gloves on her hands nd distract by playing wid her. whenever ur baby sucks thumb jz give her some distraction.

Hey dear dont worry and dont get panic I had read somewhere ke kids do this for they need attention. Hey when ever u find her doing this just b cool and distract her by doing that by engaging her in some play ful activity slowly she will forget it and will never do it Even i hv nine months daughter she was also doing same frm her 3rd or 4th month and i used Play with her catching her hands in mine used hold her up make her dance holding her or some exercises and something like this now she dosent put her fingers in her mouth
