How can thumb suckers quit habit?

Posted August 13, 2010 10:55 a.m. EDT

I'm the mom of an 11-month-old thumb sucker. And while I think it's way to early to worry about how long she'll suck her thumb, I'm sure there will be that time when I start to wonder what it might be doing to her teeth or when she needs to stop.

WRAL-TV's Dr. Allen Mask will offer some tips at 5:30 p.m. tonight on WRAL on how to get your thumb sucker to quit the habit.

But I'm sure some Go Ask Mom readers have been through this before. What are your suggestions? Please share in the comments!
