my first child uses his thumb as pacifier,he dont like other babies pacifier. and until now that he is two years of age he still suck his thumb finger. Now that i have a new baby which is a girl this time (2 months old), we notice that she act the way his brother do, when they sleep together, we saw that they both use thier finger as pacifier.

Neither of my kids sucked on their fingers. They both had pacifiers. My daughter gave hers up on her own at 7 months, but my son kept his till after he was 2 years old.

I've read that baby likes to suck his thumb because it's like mother's nipple, and it makes them comfortable. It's natural. But, slowly the baby will get rid of this habit, or maybe the parents should stop the baby from doing it? I'm not sure if it's good if the child already grows up but still sucking his thumb.
