If you had to choose, would you rather have a baby/toddler who sucks their thumb, or uses a pacifier?

I haven't had much paci experience since Izzy gave hers up at 4 months. She never used her thumb either. Maybe why she took comfort in nursing for so long?

Malachi has also decided he hates his paci, which is annoying because I wanted him to have something to help soothe him. Since then, he's fully become a thumb sucker. I don't mind at all, they can soothe themselves all by themselves.

I sucked my thumb and I turned out ok.

Paci, although Addison was attached to hers for a long time it ended up being easier to take from her then it is for me to get my son to stop sucking his thumb.

Paci since it's something I can take away. From my experience with Major, toddlers are able to develop other ways to soothe themselves.

I'd say Paci because that's what J used and we were able to wean her. I thought it would be a MUCH more difficult transition but it happened almost overnight (we told her its time to put it in the garbage and she did....at 20 months though lol).

The thumb you can't take away and I've seen some thumb suckers ruin their nails or the thumb starts looking oddly shaped... donno...just from what I've seen i guess.

I've never had experience with a thumb-sucker, but I would choose paci, I guess. It seems like it might be easier to wean from the paci.

Pacifor sure. That was huge for me because you can take it away. I sucked my thumb until I was 5 and because of it I needed major orthodontia and should have had surgery. I had such a horrible overbite which they could never get right and now I get headaches and jaw pain constantly. Daryn showed signs of being a thumbsucker and I just kept replacing her thumb with the paci and then took it away at 18 months. Eli was a comfort nurser so he didnt need either.

Def paci, but I don't have a history of paci use with any of my kids past age 4 months or so...........Ava was a serious thumbsucker and her dentist was ALARMED at her first dentist appt---her thumb sucking was changing the shape of the roof of her mouth and it was going to cause a lot of damage. We HAD to get her to stop and it was hell. It took us a FULL year.
