  • thats normal, it happens when thumb sucking occurs... depending on her age you can sit her down and tell her big girls dont suck their thumbs or tell her she can only suck her thumb at night and if she starts doing it and wont stop put her in bed and tell her its night night time since she wont take her thumb out... or put a little bit of pepper on her thumb... not a lot just enough for her to taste it and take her thumb out...
