Double UGH

We are in day two of Gabby's thumb sucking intervention. We had a long chat with her and we bought poster board and stickers to show her progress.

But out of habit, the thumb finds it's way back into the mouth. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH. She is only three, ut I know from experience that the older she gets the harder it will be for her to stop.

I am surfing the web for a Bitter Nail polish, to deterr her from sucking the thumb.

This is right up there with potting training her. The SINGLE worst experience of our LIVES!

They have the bitter polish at Walgreens in the Sally Hansen area. Good luck with it! How is the back OP going for you. I am doing good now, but the fliping weekend is calling my name and we will be outta town...ughh!
Good luck with the thumb but you know it will outgrow :-P

Our thing was the pacifier. We finally got rid of it right after he turned 3 (I think). Hopefully the nail polish works for you.
