    Welcome to Penmai....Dharshan.

    Whenever he is sucking his thumb, give some very small toys like wooden toys , so that his attention would be diverted.

    Even while sleeping , you can remove the thumb from his mouth and give a small kerchief in his hand or very tiny pillow in his hand.

    These may help him to come out from this habit.

    If these doesn't work out,

    Also you can try to apply some lemon juice in his thumb or put a small bandaid around his thumb.

    Some people also apply neem oil on the thumb.

    These may hinder him to keep his thumb in his mouth.

    It is fine , not to encourage this habit.
