Thumb Sucking

A mom recently asked me if I had any advice on thumb sucking. I did not have much to offer her, so I decided to do a little research on this topic. I came up with a few OK articles and 1 product based on many reviews, that looks like it works.

(You can buy all of these on amazon.com)
Mavala Stop- this looks like it may actually work

Thum liquid- the reviews don't look that great

Thumbusters- your child has to wear this and I know mine would never. So I don't see this being a very good product.


A good book to read to your child is "the Berenstain Bears & the Bad Habit" by Stan & Jan Berenstain

Good luck to those of you that want/need to stop this behavior.

  1. Another great product that comes with a book, thumb puppet and success chart is called Thumbuddy To Love and you can get it on Amazon or google http://www.thumbuddytolove.com
    It teaches kids in a positive way how to stop thumb sucking without using those nasty tasting polishes which shame kids. Check it out!
