So, since the our last trip to the dentist, we’ve been trying to get Ava to stop sucking her thumb. This has been quite a challenge. She doesn’t to it a lot anymore, but any time she rubs one of the dogs or is getting sleepy, in goes the thumb.
I suggested knitting a thumb cover for her and for some reason she loved the idea.
Instead of making progress on my many projects this morning, I decided to make the thumb cover. She has had it on since.
It has been working so far – who wants a mouth full of yarn?! Even if it is a lovely merino and cashmere blend!
UPDATE: It worked! She went all day and all night without sucking her thumb. And she was very proud of herself, too.
