Our Little Thumb-Sucker

I think it's a pretty safe bet that Harper won't need Binky Bootcamp like Shyla did. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I think I would prefer it if she took to a binky instead of her thumb but I guess it's not up to me.

Good luck! It's totally cute when they suck their thumb (and Harper is adorable doing it!), but it is so hard to crack the habit!
Aiden is 6 and STILL sucks his thumb :(

SO SO cute!!! I hear what you're saying, but at least you're not up several times per night putting that pacifier back in.
I read that 80% of toddlers stop the thumb-sucking habit on their own...of course, you will hear about the 20%. :)
Enjoy this great soothing mechanism for the next couple years.

So sweet ... she's got a good grip there, too!

Taylor is still sucking her thumb...she started about the same age Harper is now and I still think it's totally sweet and so convenient that she can self soothe. I'm sure when the girls are heading to Kindergarten we might feel differently, but I say enjoy it for now!

Ah, so adorable. Ellie was all about the binky until she was 4 months old. Once she went thumb she never went back. :)
