Hi Neha! One of my friends at my daughter's school Orchids taught me this - my youngest wouldn't stop this habit even @ 4 years and I applied neem oil for a week while he was asleep on his thumb. He would wake up crying and throw tantrums but eventually stopped :)

\" Femite\" - a preoduct from Fem is available in Medical stores. It is clear colorless liquid with bitter taste, specifically designed to stop thumb sucking. I have personally tried it on my boy when he was one year old. he stopped thumb sucking when i continuously applied it for 1 week

Hi Girls,

I have a son who is 2 years / 10months and also a daughter now 16 months.

Even i am going through the same problem. Both my children have got the habbit of sucking the fingers. I had tried the kaddo which is really very very bitter for my son when he was around 18 months or so. He still used to suck his fingers and the kadoo did not have any effect for my son.

I don´ t know whether i will find femite as suggested by sangeeta as we stay in singapore. But have to stop both my kids.

Thanks,
Mihika

Hi neha

My daughter used to suck her thumb till she was 22 month old.then i started to apply MAVALA on her thumb and within a month she stopped thumbsucking.Although i used to tell her that its not nice suck thumb.i used to tell dat everybody will say bad about this......so i dont know exactly what worked but she doesnt do it anymore.its been 3 months now .i am so happy...so i know what your are going through.
Any way if your son doesnt stop it inspite of using MAVALA.then dont push it....he will stop it gradually.
Good luck
Subu.
