I know this is a big block of text but it is very informative.

If your child is a thumb sucker a great thing to do is put tape on their thumb. They will not want to suck on a r thumb if it is taped up and it tastes dry and papery. This worked great for my daughter who sucked her thumb from birth to 10 years old!

Another affective thing to do is put the juice of a fruit that your child doesnt like on their thumb. Say, your child doesnt like oranges. Rub an orange on their thumb.

The habit can be continued if they suck their thumb in their sleep, so when they go to sleep try putting a mitten or glove on their hands.
