Goodbye thumb???

I have to admit, I’m a sucker for a baby sucking their thumb (no pun intended). My daughter was one on the many adorable thumb suckers. The only problem is getting them to stop! In my many years of early childhood, I’ve weaned many babies from binkies and bottles, but never had to wean a baby from sucking their thumb…until Charis that is. For the past year and half we’ve been working on it! We’ve tried apple cider vinegar (she didn’t care that her thumb tasted like a salad), band-aids (she discovered she could take them off), and even just preparing by saying when you’re two, no more thumb. That last one worked for two whole days…then her birthday party went up in flames…literally. The following day when she saw our charred kitchen, in went that thumb and stayed! So since then we’ve attempting, but no progress yet. As her third birthday approaches I hoping this time around sticks (we’re hoping for no flames too)! Hubby’s playing music…time to join in!
