Our little guy was sucking his thumb in his 20 wk ultrasound, so we’ll see how things work out after he’s born. Kind of funny though– his mom and I are looking at the ultrasound screen seeing him suck his thumb and we both get teary and smile because it’s so dang cute. DH’s response: “Is this normal? Is this a habit we’re going to have to break later?”  (“Yes dear, I’m going to reach right in there and yank his thumb out of his mouth this instant.” *eye roll*)

I wished she would have taken the thumb or binky… but no such luck!

No babies for me but I know when I was bitty, my parents put bitter apple or hot sauce on my thumb, I didn’t suck it much after that!

I was sucking my thumb in one of the sonograms… and I kept on until I was eight years old. If the wants to suck his/her thumb, it’s going to happen, no matter what.

My daughter has sucked her thumb ever since it formed in-utero. I have tried everything to break that habit and nothing works. I will post back in a few years and let you know at what age we managed to kick the habit and what worked LOL.

umm. I sucked my thumb until i was thirteen. That thumb is even shorter than the other because of it now!

My mum did everything to get me to stop. I seem to remember mustard powder and cayenne being rubbed on it. My poor mudder!

@Mollytov: The only reason I stopped is because I wanted to grow my nails out long like the other girls in my class did.

@helenberrycrunch: i have fond memories of wrapping my fore finger over my nose, thumb stuck deep in my mouth while watching The Wonder Years … 

So don’t worry ladies! Your kids will stop before prom!
