I have a 2 1/2 year old son who is utterly devoted to sucking his thumb- day in, day out, asleep, awake, somewhere in between.... no matter what I do he won't stop. I pull his thumb from his mouth and he pops the other hand in. I try to reward him with treats or special things to do for not sucking his thumb, but nothing has interested him enough to get him to stop. He went to his first dental visit where the dentist said he has to stop now or risk causing permanent harm to his upper jaw. I need help!! Any suggestions???
