I've Never Had One Of These Before!

A thumb sucker, that is.
I can't get over how cute this is!

She rarely sucks her thumb, in fact. Both Livvie and Ellia were pacifier babies, and Brienna often likes to have hers when she goes to bed for the night.
What about your kids? Pacifier, thumb, or nothing at all?

Aleia took a paci till she was 3, she gave it up easy. The baby came along and she realized it was now the babies turn. Brienna loves 2 or 3 paci's at a time:-) it might be harder for her to give it up.

All 3 of my sisters kids are thumb suckers. It's cute but a very hard thing to break. Her oldest is 6 and still sucks her thumb:-)

I was a thumb sucker! Right up until the orthodontist made me quit (I was in third grade *blush*). I was born with a high narrow palate, just perfect for a thumb to fit in. It made it much more comfortable for me to sleep so that was the only time I ever employed the thumb. By the time I was 8 it was easy to quit *grin*
Also, I had to quit b/c the ortho stuck an appliance over the roof of my mouth.
Here's hoping there's no orthodontist in Brienna's future!

My first three were pacifier babies. My fourth is neither, he doesn't like either. Which I am kind of glad about as that is one less habit to break!

Jackson and Owen did the paci until they were a year old. Liv is our thumbsucker. It is ADORABLE! It's nice b/c she doesn't throw her paci on the floor and she can pacify herself. Not quite sure how easy it will be to break her of it though! :)

Aidan and Connor both like Pacis. Aidan gave his up easily and I think Connor will do fine too. Aidan did and Connor does have to have 3 at a time though. One in the mouth and one in each hand. It just cracks me up that both boys like the paci the same way. Lol.

my husband and I both were thumb suckers until quite late in life - 7 or 8 I believe. And we have 2 little thumb suckers here, too. Michael never had braces, while I was stuck with them for a year in 4th grade.
