My ds is 15mo and loves his thumb. Unfortunately, with winter here, his thumb is dry and starting to crack. I've tried lotion but with as much as he sucks his thumb, I swear he sucks the lotion right off. Every time I see him with his thumb in his mouth I take it out and give him something to play with to discourage the thumb sucking but all he wants is that thumb. Any advice on what to do?
