How to stop thumbsucking?

My dd will be 7 next month. We have tried everything short of removing her thumb to get her to stop.

Everything from bribery to the Stop Nail biting "polish".

  • I don't think this will work since she's 7, but my nephew sucked his thumb, and I put a band-aid on it while I was babysitting him. It reminded him to keep it out of his mouth. He's 4, though, and a little more impressionable.

  • Other mom's may think this "CRAZY", but I know mom's who put Tabasco sauce on the thumb.
