    Question Thumb Sucking

    My DD (15wks) thumb is red and the skin is starting to crack from her sucking her thumb. I personally dont like pacifiers and have heard that they interfere with BF, so she never really has taken one. I have tried to give her one, so that she gives her thumb a break and time to heal, but she just wont take one. I have tried, NUK, soothie, and MAM. She just spits them out and goes for her thumb.
    She only sucks her thumb when she sleeps/is going to sleep. We can't cosleep b/c my DH is adamanly against it, so she cant just use me. Any suggestions?
