  • My mom used it on me for my nail biting and my brother for his thumb sucking. It didn't work for either of us. It tastes like shit, and leaves a horrible taste in the mouth, but we just got used to it.

  • my mom never used anything on me for sucking my thumb. she always told everyone to leave me alone when i got tired of how my thumb tasted, i would stop sucking it. i sucked my thumb till i was 5 and when my son was born, he would suck his middle fingers instead of the pacifier but he gave that up when he was about 6 or 7 months old.

  • I am 22 and still catch myself doing it sometimes, but it isn't a concious thing.. I get nervous or what have you and there I go.. sucking my thumb! LOL

    I bought the stuff for myself, and thought about trying it out on my two year old. Her teeth are starting to shift HORRIBLY because of her thumb sucking.. :-/
