  • you know my daughter did that. we would just remind her to keep her finger out of her mouth, we didn't yell about it, just reminded her. She will quit soon enough, especailly when she starts school, if she does it in class the kids will notice. Just remind her

  • Every time my daughter had her fingers in her mouth, I'd tell her, "Fingers!" She'd pull her fingers out immediately. You can also pick up clear nail polish that tastes foul-it's supposed to stop nail-biting, but it'll probably work on finger sucking, too.
