When It’s Time To Stop Your Child’s Thumb Sucking

Understanding why your child sucks their thumb may be the key to helping them stop. You can rest assured that sucking is one of an infant’s natural reflexes. They begin to suck on their thumbs or other fingers while they are in the womb. Infants and young children may suck on thumbs, other fingers, pacifiers or other objects. It makes them feel secure and happy, and it helps them learn about their world.
