Thumb! Thumb!

Must shake hands with LZmommy. My boy had now picked up the habits of sucking his fist for comfort. And in just 2 weeks, he had moved from trying to put the whole fist into his mouth to...

... the Index Finger to....

Finally, the THUMB! And he cried out loud if his thumb slipped out of his mouth when he is sucking it.

Must find a way to take this bad habit away or he might have difficulties in quiting it later...hmm..remind me of some one who suckle her thumb all the way to Primary 6..hahaha Burst Laughing Oops! Better not laugh at her or it might comes back to me. Goofy

Now, my solution is to push him the pacificer which he is not very fond of. I tried offering my breast to him but it only angers him when the milk comes.

Haha! Let's shake hands then ;) Next time we have coffee and our boys will have fists sucking session. Gagaga..... Wait till he starts drooling like Beanie, it will be saliva dripping everywhere.

I'm still trying to get Beanie to stop but to no avail. When I give him pacifier, he play with it instead. So now, I try give him a toy to distract him.

LZmommy - really must shake hands!! Ryan played with the pacifier too! He will use his tongue and "roll" it around!

mommy to chumsy - really?! :) wonder when will they stop?

Angeline said...

Aiyo!!! You and LZmommy, too much alike leh!!!

while trying to get him to kick this habit is important, trimming fingernails must be more frequent now, I guess.... won't want him to cut his tender skin ya?

Babies find it a comfort sucking their thumb. But somehow both my children didn't suck thumb.

One on pacifier, the other just didn't like the pacifier or his own thumb! :-)

I think he'll soon forget the thumb as my kids did. :)

Moo mommy said...

I use to put the hand out and let bb cry.

Hi Blessed mom, try putting a touch of salt, ha ha.
I did that to my kid when very young....he spat it out, ha ha.
No problemos after that.
Cute boy you got there....
Best regards, Lee.

Oh, my 4 month old is the same. And just this evening I saw him stuffing both hands into his mouth, both index fingers and middle fingers were in. He actually looked so cute... too bad no camera near by.

Anyway, We always pull his hands out and tell him, "no", so he knows he should not do that and most of the time he will stop after a while. We have to be on a constant look out coz we don't want him to have that habit too.

My sister's girl sucks on her index finger until it has a huge bump on it. There were even occasions when it was infected. Poor girl. It did hurt.

My son first started to suck his thumb when he was 2 months+... paed says its alright as he's pacifying himself... problem is, he's still sucking his thumb to sleep and he's now 4! *pengsan*

We then quickly gave my daughter pacifier soon after she was born. At 2 now, she's starting to drop the habit.

Not too sure... but probably pacifier is less engaging compared to thumb :-)

Lols! I didnt said it... Is Mummy... Wahhaha, But Until P6 Meh? So Kua Zhang :D

Blessed mum said...

mumsgather - hopefully :)

Moo mommy - that's what I'm trying to. And I will add the word "No no"

uncle Lee - haha..that's cruel :P but got some worst from some old folk to put those chinese medical oil too!

Moomykin - O that must be very painful. Poor girl.

BoeyJoey - thanks for dropping by. Think thumb is more easily accessible than pacifier, that's why more difficult to quit. *sigh* Should have given him the pacifier before he picks up this habit..now too late.

XinYing - go ask her lor..i think it later than that! If i don't remember wrongly, it till Sec school okay!
