How do I get my son to stop sucking his thumb? He only sucks his thumb when he is tired and I dont want to do crazy things like putting hot sauce on his thumb.

Hey there my son who was 2 at the time was a thumb sucker from birth and i got him to stop by telling him his teeth were going to fall out! I just told him that a couple times a day wheni noticed that he was doing it and after 4 days or so he stopped! try not to make a big deal out of it all the time though!

My daughter is almost 4 and still sucks her thumb (also only when she's tired). She has been to the dentist and her mouth, gums, teeth, are all fine, so I don't see the problem with it (yet). Hopefully around her 4th birthday, I can get her actively involved in quitting this particular habit. (at that time I will probably try the thumb sucker no more product) lol
