Oh Boy We Are in Trouble!

Sage's new thing now is sucking her thumb. I was worried before about having to eventually take away her paci and her Bunkey...but how the heck am I suppose to take away a thumb? It is kind of nice now when her paci falls out she just pops her thumb in but it won't be cute anymore when she is in kindergarden and still sucking her thumb. Any other mom's out there have any advice for me? You have to admit though, she is pretty cute!

I'll let you know when I know. Parker is still sucking his thumb. Not as often as he used to, but enough that it cracks, the nail is FUBAR & he's even gotten a staph infection in it! Keep her hands full & she can't stick her thumb in her mouth! Hope all is going well. She sure is a beautiful girl!

I always wished that my kids would suck their thumb, it's always there to soothe! None of mine did though, but those pictures are just so cute!

I always figured Avery would be a thumb sucker, but she never did. I wouldn't worry about it. A LOT of babies suck their thumbs and don't have a whole heck of a lot of trouble giving it up. Hayden sucked his thumb till he was about 3 and he had problems with the skin cracking too, but it's fine now. You never know, she might just give it up in a few days! If you're worried about it though, it's probably easier to keep her from doing it now instead of waiting until she's been doing it for a few years. Put little mittens on or something. She definitely is cute though, I'd just let her do it lol.
