Thumb sucking


My 3.5 year old daughter finally had her first dentist appointment today after a year of covid and moving delays. Everything was good, but they strongly advised we get her to stop sucking her thumb. We knew this day was coming lol, just were in denial until a professional stepped in. It’s so hard! She would keep asking all day if she could suck her thumb and we have to keep encouraging her not to and you can see it just breaks her little heart.

She mostly does it when she’s sleepy or watching tv. I’ve read a few things online that could help but wondering if any mamas on here have any advice!
