    Sucking of the finger is a very rampant behavior among babies, but I’m still yet to discover what they enjoy in this practice. Some will suck it till over 2 sometimes more longer. What is the most effective way to stop a baby from sucking on their fingers. The only method I know is rubbing of aloe Vera gel or bitter leaf on the finger.

    Little babies can be stopped by wearing hand mittens. That’s the best time to stop them. When they are older they can be cautioned everytime. But if it becomes a problem, visit a dentist for a tongue rake.

    Rapping the finger tightly with clothes stops them from sucking the finger

    Some children no matter what you do, they stick on that habit but outgrows it with time

    In my place, they rub a bitter leaf on the child’sĀ finger. So once the child tries to suck it and it tastes bitter, the child won’t continue. WORKS LIKE MAGIC! lol
