Dummy!!! My little kitana 6months old started sucking her fingers at about the age of 3months. Every time I caught her I would say "get your hands out of your mouth" and put the dummy in at first I thought i was fighting a loosing battle but now i barely catch her with her fingers its always something else that she is not suppose to have.

Thanks to everone for responding, she is 3, I have tried the nail polish on her fingers to see if the taste would make her stop, all in all, she has a strong stomach for it! or her taste buds are wako I have also told her that if she doesnt stop she is going to get sick and i have also told her that her teeth are going to look like a beaver's LOL nothing i am trying is working

My first question would be how old she is?  My oldest sucked her finger.  What worked for me was when she feel asleep, a big ace bandage over her elbow.  She sucked her right hand.  If she took it off, no treats, now ice cream..no nothing.  Which child do you know that don't like treats?  It worked well because I wouldn't let up.

how old is she??? I made a deal with my oldest daughter (she bit her nails) that if she kept her fingers nice she could have nail varnish on over the weekend, she was about 3-4 then it did work.
