Question Help - Thumb Sucking

I can't stop.... lol KIDDING

My son is getting to where it is non stop.

He is 6 and it didn't start till he was about 3. It used to be only while watching TV or Sleeping but it has gotten worse and worse.

We put that fingernail polish on his fingers but he gets it off and right back to it.

I have heard of a dental implant that blocks the thumb. Who has done this?

Just looking for some advice on what we can try before the dental route.

Thanks!

a little jalapeno on his finger maybe? That might be considered child abuse now, but it used not to be.

My wife always said she would put "nail bitter" on my fingers if I didn't quit messing with them. Maybe that would help?

And only getting worse.

We have been on him and working on it since he picked it up but still losing the battle.

Use the great parenting method of LYING, lol. I had to tell my little girl that at night weird little night bugs came out when she was sleeping and pooped all over her fingers and if she sucked them, she would get that in her mouth and it would lead to bugs crawling out of her butt to get out. LOL. But it is working for last 6 weeks. I don't know why I came up with that, but it works haha

My daughter had this problem when she was young too. We had a dental device put in her mouth that wouldn't allow her thumb to fit in the roof of her mouth. It’s kind of like a retainer that is glued in and rather than fitting the roof of the mouth it sits lower to block the thumb and take the comfort out of it. It worked great for her and once it was out she never looked back. Plus it’s painless and no one will know it’s in his mouth.

Thumb sucking is a psychological comfort and habit. I think it takes creative discipline to work through it. I have a niece that is 22yrs old and still sucks her thumb.

Default Help - Thumb Sucking

My 6 year old does it when she's tired or nervous. I wouldn't stress too much. My cousin's kid was a bad thumb sucker and she stopped as she got a little older with no weird problems, but the pooping bugs & worms seems like a much more entertaining route.

I used to swallow my gum a lot when I was a kid so my mom told me my butt cheeks would stick together and I wouldn't be able to poop. Worked like a charm.

I don't remember how long she wore it. I think it was up to the Dr. As far as cost I don't think it was too bad.

We used this for two of my kids. Works like a charm and once its in, you as the parent never have to fuss at them.
I think they wore it for less than a year and it was not a costly thing. don't remember if that tells you anything. Heck, insurance may cover it?

We used this. It only took a week for my daughter to stop sucking her fingers. I put it on her twice a day.

You should determine what is causing the thumb sucking. It is probably an emotional problem rather than a feel good thing. Improper handling of this situation can do much harm for the child.

Thanks everyone.

He wants to stop, he always just says I can't help it.

So I know its time to really get on it and help him out.

I honestly don't think he even knows it. I was flying next to him last weekend and I would just keep pulling it out over and over and he was shocked each time.

Crazy

Well it started when we were building our house. Stressful time for sure.

Once he found it and started using it, man it has just became a habit. So i don't think its one thing just a habit that he goes to when bored, sleepy, need comfort..

But heck, who knows.

Thats just my best guess at it.

I've found that yelling incessantly and throwing things will put a child's mind at ease.

My girl sucked hers until about 4. We sat her down and asked her about it. She said she liked the taste. We soaked her thumb in vinegar twice and she never sucked it again.

Also, how is **** caught by the swear filter but butt hole is OK?

If he was 14 and playing baseball sucking his thumb at 2nd base I would be concerned. At 6, not so much.

OH for sure, I agree but he has expressed the desire to quit and says he cannot.

So I want to help him out to kick it.

Motivation has to come from within.

My daughter began biting her nails when she was about 4 and we ran fought that for about a year.
Ultimately what did it was she started "big kid school" and she learned what painted nails were. We told her she couldn't paint her nails until they were long enough.

Find something he desires and work towards it. Some may call it a bribe. I say it's learning self discipline, and the ability to make short term sacrifice for long term gain, set goals etc.

Each situation is different but fear of loss and hope for gain are the two primary motivators in life.

Maybe try finding something for him to do that uses both hands. It sounds like when he sits still that it what he reverts to. If you can find a task or several tasks for him to do when he is bored or has to sit that requires the use of both hands then maybe that will help. Maybe a craft or something that he can work towards. It would need to be something rather simple and easy to take with him on the go. Maybe if he keeps his mind occupied and his hands busy he will quit.

Don't stress it or it will make things worse. Try positive reinforcement. Negative reinforcemnt won't work bc he doesn't realize it is happening.

Our daughter was a thumb sucker, and nothing we could do would stop her. There was no emotional/psychological/environmental reason for her thumb sucking...she had a normal childhood without any trauma or stressors, she just liked to suck her thumb. Ultimately, the wife and I decided there were worse things in the world, and we just left her alone. I thought she finally quit the habit, but last year, she was laying on the sofa and sucking her thumb (she'll turned 21 yrs. old this year). When I asked her about it, she said her stomach was hurting her, and sucking her thumb made it feel better. Okey dockey...some things you just need to leave alone.

Regards,

Dave

Don't know if this will help, but....When I was a kid, I sucked my thumb. It was especially hard to fall asleep at night without doing so. Then, I started going to sleep-overs. I would not be caught by other kids sucking my thumb. My family had tried all sorts of stuff with me before that to no avail. The fear of being shamed by peers is a powerful motivator. It worked for me, and I can't credit any of my family members' interventions for the behavioral change.

I have a child of my own now, and to this day, my father still repeats one of his favorite responses I ever gave him. He asked me one day why I sucked my thumb, and without skipping a beat, with a straight face I told him "to keep the bugs out of my mouth."

Mom is a dental hygienist and says that thumbs suckers can created teeth issues...especially the two front teeth up top when they are growing in. It can split them and lay them back or forward if its done long enough. Had an issue with a niece doing it and she had them make sure she stopped it.


So I guess what I am saying is its more than just thumb sucking....it can cause some expensive dental problems later on as well.

We went through this a couple years ago with my daughter. We tried the glove, reasoning, scare tactic (gonna lose your teeth), rewards for not sucking, everything! But the implant worked! Took some getting used to and for a short time, she still would try to suck her thumb in her sleep, but would just rest her thumb in her mouth, but this stopped pretty quick. I mention this, so that if you go this route, don't get discouraged if you have to remind him at first.

If think insurance covered half and total cost was $1,000.00. We paid $500.00. I was not happy about cost, but well worth it! She was ready to stop, but just needed a little help. Think she kept it in for 6 months, but you and the dentist will decide together when it is ready to come out. If we would have thought she needed more time, we could have left it in there longer. Well worth it for us.
