is anyone's little one still sucking their thumb??
Marley sucks her thumb like 80% of the day. it's horrible. right now it's cold so because her thumb is always wet it's starting to be really chapped. we've tried a bunch of things to get her to stop but no luck. we talked about it with her dentist and he said there's nothing you can really do until they want to stop. that it shouldn't effect her perment teeth at this point.
But..... her teeth are already really messed up. the two on top are buck and the two on the bottom are starting to turn in. if that's not bad enough her speech is starting to be effect by it because she doesn't bother to take her thumb out of her mouth when talking sometimes i swear she's developing a lisp or something.
It's really bothering me but i can't even start to tackle this bad habit until we are long past potty training. she's regressed a little in that area she's always in panties now but sometimes she will ask for a diaper to go poop in because she doesn't want to use the potty. At first we said no way but then she was holding it and getting really constipated so we decided that it would be better to let her use the diaper when she want's it's like a 50/50 thing now. but she's still good on the peeing part :)
I just know that there's probably going to be a lot of screaming when the time comes to say good by to her thumb. I know she's not going to let it go without a fight. I know i didn't.
