I have not heard of this, ever. If she wants to suck her own finger, fine but for you to suck on hers seems inappropriate. Also, my dental hygienist told me that the bacteria that causes tooth decay is a communicable disease. For that reason, mothers should not "clean" pacifiers with their own mouths. I am not saying I necessarily agree, I smooch my kids on the mouth daily. Nor have I researched the topic. I am just relaying what one dental health expert told me.
If you want to stop, maybe chew gum instead.

Um... ew. That is... extremely disturbing. I would recommend professional help if you can't just STOP sucking your child's finger...
