My son is 2 1/2!& sucks his fingers a lot I've heard both sides... Get him to stop or his teeth will b ruined. Or let h stop on his own cause it is his security. I want him to stop any suggestions on how to easily guide him to be a non finger sucker. I haven't tried anything sour or spicy on his finger any tips on what I could use. I've just try to tell him his hands have germs and don't need to b in his mouth. Open to opinions and advice

Yeah I've talked to him about germs. He understands but he's so attached to those fingers, when he was a baby I had a lot of people influencing him to sick his fingers but now two and a half I think he needs to stop. People say he will stop on his own but I donno

Whenever my daughter put her fingers in her mouth I just gently pulled her had away and told her about germs. I hear vinegar on the hand works well and it will help keep those germs out of his mouth.
