I've tried covering her thumb with bandaids and tape, she just pulls it off and continues to suck her thumb. She takes it out when I ask her too, but will continue when she's watching tv or when she's sleepy. Any suggestions?

Ask Your Pediatric Dr. and they'll tell its NORMAL ! Most children whom do this have HIGH I.Q's, This typically means one of two things or BOTH 1) Bored 2) Security she's either Outgoing Or Shy ! This has taught her to pacify & satisfy her self, your child will out grow this in her time alone ! U try to force her stop she'll resent you (Personal Experience)

The more shes around other children her age indoors or out she'll get far more interested in other activities !
