  • well my 5 year old still sucks her thumb, mainly when she is also tired or has her special blanket. So what i did to reduce the thumb sucking is take her blanket away until bed time. I also have tried some stop nail biting stuff but it didn't work, I talked to my daughters dentist and they said that it isn't really an issue until they start getting their adult teeth. I hope this helps good luck also if you do happen to find something that works Please Let me know Thanks
