My 3.5-year-old really likes to suck on her two fingers, particularly when she is tired. This habit is new to me since my eldest preferred her pacifier, which we were pretty easily able to break her of by simply taking it away. But I am at a loss as to what to do with the finger-sucking habit. I really have not been too concerned with the habit since she only reason does when she is sleepy or getting ready to go to bed, but I know I will eventually have to break her of it. Does anyone have any suggestions? Did you let your child just just wean herself off, or did you try to encourage her to stop? What are some tips and tricks?
