My 3 year old son won't stop sucking his thumb, I've tried the thum medicine that is bitter tasting you can buy from the store to stop you from sucking your thumb, he liked the taste of it... I've tried hot sauce he made a face but continued to suck his thumb, I've tried showing him pictures of what thumb sucking can do to your teeth, I've tried showing him his things and how flat and pruny they look compared to the other fingers after sucking on them, I've even tried sticking jalapeño peppers on his thumbs it doesn't fase him. Anyone have any ideas to get him to stop sucking his thumb?

So far they have enjoyed making the marks :) I let them decide on what to make, they wanted dinosaurs, pizza, cookies, & ice cream Lol I let all 3 of them help. Even my youngest son he's 1yr 6 months he helped scribble/color :) *Fingers crossed*
