My daughter Trinity is almost perfect on everything, but when she's hungry or sleepy, she always put her finger in the mouth. So her finger is really ugly, the skin is kinda hard. Now, even my son Triston who is only 4 months old, sucks his finger too. I really need help on this, please tell me what I can do can make them quit that.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Hi, I'd try putting something that tastes a bit awful( but harmless) on their fingers. May deter them from putting them back in their mouths.
