I love your page!
My little girl is 7 and about 3 months ago she finally stopped sucking her thumb! I never pushed the issue, I would just talk to her about it occasionally and finally she agreed to try to stop and she did! However she still has her blankie! I have no hope that she will ever give up her blankie but that's ok with me, I just hope her husband will be ok with it!! teehee!
My DS was a constant thumb sucker until he got a nasty throat virus right after he turned two--he wouldn't eat, drink or swallow his saliva! We were on vacation so it was an uncomfortable flight home for him but he stopped sucking his thumb. My DH sucked his thumb until he was around 5--my MIL told me he was begging her to help him stop!
