I'm after some advice my almost 3yo Dd has starting picking her lip only when she needs to goto bed. She used to have a dummy around 5 months ago it's gotten worse n worse sometimes she will during the day. She takes forever to goto sleep as she's obsessed with it!!
I'm trying not to say 'stop etc'.
Tonight I gave her dummy back because I didn't want it to continue did I make the right choice is it because she was still needing her dummy?

Have you tried essential oils diluted for kids to help with anxiety. Might be a good idea to incorporate a blend into the bedtime routine?

I am curious to know your opinion on this topic too... My eldest daughter (8yo) has a very strong habit of sucking her (lower) lip. To the point that her teeth are now not properly placed (unless it's the natural placement of her teeth, but it really looks odd). Last time we saw a dentist, she told her that she had to stop sucking her lip before Christmas or we would use a "habit breaking device" (which I googled and it doesn't look fun). Since then (it was a month ago) my daughter has made huge efforts and doesn't bite her lip any more, unless she is falling asleep. The problem is exactly there: even though she barely sucks her lip now, she still spent the night sucking her lip, and it worries me... Any ideas?
