There is always an answer for each child's habits or actions, as is thumb sucking. Finger sucking is a normal process that children experience. In some cases, children do not start sucking their thumbs. Few start with other body parts – palms or parts of hands – until they become more focused and coordinated on the thumbs or other body parts (or foreign objects such as toys, pillows, etc.) that are easy to reach.
According to some experts, the thumb-sucking habit can begin during childbirth. That is when the baby is still in the womb and has reached gestational age. However, this is still uncertain. However, this sucking reflex is mainly related to the way children are fed either breast-feeding or bottle-feeding. You can also know more about how to stop finger sucking methods for your child.

In addition, and which would explain why babies who are no longer dependent on breast milk or bottle-fed continue to suckle, sucking is also a natural way for babies to calm down. So it's like therapy for them. Whenever they are sad, excited, or scared, they will feel relieved by sucking on their favorite thumb or finger or their chosen body part.
Because of this, you see the importance of a careful procedure that will help your child stop sucking their thumb. If you take a negative or aggressive approach, your child will be more likely to develop a thumb-sucking habit. His instincts would tell him that he was in danger or that he was in a situation where he was not feeling well. As a result, his natural response is to relax and suck more.
This is why it is so important to take positive action to get your child to break the habit of thumb sucking.
