he is 20 months old and wont stop sucking his thumb. I've tried some things but nothing seems to work. My other two took a pacifier which I took away on their first birthday, I cant take his thumb away. They cried for a couple of nights and then they were fine.

I work in child care and the children suck there thumbs and hands a lot. What we do is tell the child over and over hands out your mouth and we remove it. A lot of the children have learned to stop it just takes time. You gotta keep trying sooner or later he will understand. But know that it is okay for now. I hope this helps you some.
