Some kids suck their thumbs when they are sleepy or tired as it gives them a comfortable feeling. You need to check on this habit as soon as possible as might result in pain or infection of the thumb and dental problems.

Because of easy availability and too much variety of snacks, many kids get the habit of eating even when they are not hungry so replace snacks with fruits or salad.

Children start lip biting and chewing when they have cracked lips so apply lip balm on their lips.
