  • Nothing stopped me, I still suck my thumb!! Not embarassed and don't have crooked teeth, just big lips, the ones most women are paying to get-like Angelina's lips.

  • My 4 year old sucks her forefinger when she's tired and as she's falling asleep. She always has. I say don't worry about it. She will probably outgrow it.
