Thumb Sucking: How & When To Break The Habit

Tuesday , 29, June 2021 Comments Off on Thumb Sucking: How & When To Break The Habit

When it comes to figuring out when to stop, a good goal to set is breaking the habit until your child's permanent front teeth are ready to erupt. 

Continued thumb sucking after the adult teeth have entered can affect the growth of the oral cavity and the alignment of the teeth. You can also look for the best thumb sucking device via

Whether thumb sucking causes dental problems depends on how often and how intensively the baby or child sucks the thumb. And the same goes for the pacifier. Most children quit thumb sucking between the ages of 2 and 4 years.

When it comes to how there are different approaches. First of all, it is important to know why your child is sucking their thumb/finger/pacifier. If your child is using it to deal with uncertainty or fear, try to address the root of their fear and focus on solving it. 

For children sucking for comfort, parents may need to be creative about other ways to provide comfort. 

Some children may be motivated by a reward or respond to physical memory — by wrapping their thumb, pulling a sock on their hand at night — to help them stop.

As with so many things, connecting with your kid and helping them through this major transition can help them get the confidence they need to succeed.
