    Default Help me please stop her thumb sucking

    So DD is going to be 4 in December and I really want her to stop sucking her thumb! She is starting to develop what is looking like an over bite and he thumb continually has a lump on it, not very big but still a lump.
    I have tried a rewards chart where she gets to stamp the chart, I bought a special box of barbies as a bribe, they are still ontop of the cupboard staring down at her...
    I have put nail bit stop stuff on her thumb, yep over the whole thing and she just sucks it till its gone!
    What can I do?!? I can't figure it out :-( and I am worried that soon her baby teeth will start falling put and permanent teeth will come through.

    Some kids are oral kids. You can get chew things designed for children with Autism, but anyone can use them. They can be on a necklace and will not damage teeth.
