Thumb Sucking

All babies suck their thumbs (and anything else which finds its way to their mouths) as part of the natural sucking reflex which helps them feed. This sucking reflex usually becomes less strong by the time the child is six months old, but many children continue to suck their thumbs because they find it comforting. Weaning them from this habit can be challenging.
