NON-BINKY KIDS: Did they suck their thumbs instead?

Throughout CafeMom, I feel like a lot of people are under the impression that if a child did not/does not use a binky, then they would suck their thumbs (or fingers or something else). So for those whose children did not binkies, did they suck on something else?

My 3 year old never sucked on anything ever (unless she was eating as an infant of course).

I know this says didn't use binky, but I wanted him to suck his binky because he was trying to suck his thumb the day after he was born. I didn't want to deal with breaking the the sucking (I have a 30+ uncle that still sucks his thumb in his sleep). We have video of him in my belly sucking his thumb...

Only one of my three kids used a paci:  my youngest, on and off for 3 months. None of mine have ever sucked their thumb, or anything else.

My 1 year old used his binky off and on for 8 months when he was in pain from his severe GERD. If he wasn't in pain from it, he would just spit it out if you tried to put it in his mouth lol. He didn't suck anything else.

Quoting KayDziedzic:
