How do I get my daughter to stop sucking her thumb? She has been doing this since she was in the womb and has never stopped. She only sucks her thumb when she goes to bed but I want to put a stop to it now. She is 18 months old and goes to bed by herself and sleeps through the night. How do I stop the thumb sucking without messing up her schedule?
Also, she has a blanket that she has to have when she is tired and sleeps. She has to have the corner of it. So it is her security blanket. Do you think I should take it away from her or should I let her keep it?
Is it a big deal that she has the blanket at this age? My mom keeps telling me that she is too old to be sucking her thumb and having a blankey. What do you think? Please advice is really wanted!!
