Every time I saw our son with his thumb in his mouth, I would gently take it out. I didn't scold, put yucky tasting stuff on his thumb; I would just not make an issue out of it. BTW, my son was almost 6 before I started dealing with his thumb sucking. I also noticed he sucked his thumb when he was tired or sleepy. Now my sister when we put tabasco sauce on hers she got use to the taste and later she started biting her nails really bad. I would just let nature take it's course.
