Fortunately, there are many ways that are successful to make kid's quit habits of thumb sucking before it becomes unhealthy for a kid's growing mouth. It is important to note that there are no quick fixes. 

  • Gently tell your kid every time you see a finger or thumb in his/her mouth.

  • Give him/her something to entertain, such as play a game together, give the stuffed toy to play with, or cuddle them.

  • You can apply a solution or put a band-aid over the thumb they usually suck on. This could be enough to help them remember their goal.

  • Give your kid lots of praise and encouragement when they go a while without thumb sucking or remember to stop without a reminder.
