Won't stop sucking thumb to eat!!
« on: April 29, 2013, 23:02:00 pm »
My little cutie won't stop sucking her thumb while I'm trying to feed her.  I try holding her hands, but that only works for a short amount of time and then she just gets so upset.  It takes forever to feed her if I let her suck her thumb and she won't eat cause she's crying if I hold her hands.  Plus it makes such a mess.

I don't want her to learn that she can thumb while she's eating, but I don't know how to get her to stop.

Does anyone else have this problem?  Any suggestions?

How old is she? My dd used to do this, I don't really remember how but she stopped it by herself eventually. Does it happen more when she is tired?

She's 9 months.  She does it all of the time no matter what!

My dd did that as well -- I can remember pulling it out long enough to shovel some food in and her popping it right back in.  She did stop eventually, but like PP said, I can't remember when!
