Hi there if you are really looking to stop this habit then please do not do anything special for this as this is really very common and you should not think so much and you will see one fine day your kid will stop this thumb sucking .

Hi there please do not think so much and just visit a chemist and ask for a liquid solution as there is a solution which needs to be applied on the kids thumb so as he tries to suck it there would be bitter taste and by this he will not suck it again.

Hi Samay, there are a lot of kids who are having this problem so do not worry. With time he will leave this habit. However you need to somehow help him to stop it by telling him the disadvantage of thumb sucking.

It is better to get rid of the thumb sucking habit as soon as possible as if the child gets under the habit of doing that it will get very difficult to make him leave that habit and then he might continue doing it.

Hello Samay,
Its better you resolve this problem as early as possible because it might become habit when they grow also so try to divert your child to play some games. Like wise it may solve some part of problem.

I think there is no specific age to get rid of this habit, because I have seen many children who used to suck their thumb even after attending schools. Try some methods like tying some small clothes around your kid’s thumb or apply some cream or oil which your child don’t like around the thumb.
