Lena has been getting a hold of hers off and on for a few weeks. My sister, brother, and I were all major thumb suckers and so is Anna. So we are fighting nature with the paci. When she needs it, she needs it, but as soon as she can get the thumb regularly, I know the pacis will be done for.
Both of the boys want to get theirs really bad. They can get it every once in awhile. No one in our family was a thumb sucker but my sister loved her pacis. I think once they figure it out they will love it. They love to try and suck on my fingers but hate the pacis.
Leif hasn't found his yet. Once by accident a couple days old. But never again. We offer a paci when he gets cranky. With my oldest, she found her thumb and I let her, thinking once she grew teeth, she wouldn't want it anymore. But nooo....she is 12 and still sucks it. Ugh. Usually when she is tired though.
Anna has been staring at her fist. Not just glancing, but hardcore staring at it like it's going to bite her if she stops looking at it or something. She'll suck on her fist when she's in her bassinet and waking up (assuming she's gotten out of her swaddle). She's also started sticking her tongue out all the time. So when I'm holding her, after she's full even, she sticks her tongue out. I don't think she's going to be a thumb sucker and she will not take her paci, no matter how mad she is. It'll be interesting to see if she does start sucking her thumb, though. No one in my family has ever been a thumb sucker, and neither was SO or anyone in his family.
i was a thumbsucker
though only in the privacy of my house and i did it until about ten, gave it up myself, my parents had given up long ago to keep me from doing it, wasnt worth the hassle
it never messed up my teeth thank god
i hate to prevent her from doing it because its been helping her sleep longer
