  • Just let him suck his thumb. The more you push to get him to stop the more he will want to do it.

  • This made me chuckle. I can't believe he loved hot sauce!! :) Best of luck to you.. I've got no idea.. I took pacifier away from my son at 12 months, and he hasn't found out that his thumb is much like a pacifier.. thank goodness.. Good luck

  • The best advice I have is dont push too hard for him to stop, he will rebel. Also, talk to him about being a big boy, tell him big boys dont suck their thumb, maybe see if you can get him to only do it at bed time?
