Thumbs Up!

30-Day Thumb Sucking Elimination Program

Thumb sucking is a common habit for babies and toddlers to self-soothe.

Thumb sucking

Most children naturally stop by 6 months of age. As children grow, thumb sucking can harm healthy development by causing

  • Faster growth of upper jaw
  • Slower growth of lower jaw
  • Improper alignment of teeth
  • High, narrow roof of mouth
  • Early loss of baby teeth
  • Abnormal swallow pattern
  • Sleep issues
  • Speech delays & disorders
