My 2 year-old baby girl started thumb sucking when she was 3 months old. Until now, she never stop doing this. I'm afraid it might affect the formation of her teeth and I'm bothered that her thumb is getting bigger. Does anyone else experience this with their son or daughter? What should I do?

thumb sucking is for comfort! i dont no if any other mums would recommened but i would personally get the nail polish for nail biters, dab it on a few times a day then she wont have her thumb in her mouth, my mum done that to me when i was younger and i never sucked my thumb since it was awfull! or maybe try find her another comforter,blanket, teddy etc hope that helps
