Yesterday I found Blue sucking his thumb. It wasn't the normal eating his fist like he always does. He blatantly had his thumb in his mouth and was going to town. I pulled it out of his mouth and he smiled a big toothless grin at me. Like he knew I didn't want him doing it.
So my question is... Is it bad that I'm discouraging it? It would help him to soothe himself to sleep better. But, he will also probably mess up his teeth. He is already going to probably need braces... Sadly that's a trait he will get from his mom. I looked like Mr. Ed until 5th grade... Sad story. So I would like for him to not make the buck teeth chances even higher. Is there anything I can do to prevent him from sucking besides just yanking it out?
