DS (6) sucks the tail of a cuddly toy for comfort /sleep,since he was a baby.It has affected his teeth and the dentist has commented.His first baby tooth is wobbly.I had always said ,no more toy sucking when the baby teeth come out as it will affect the growth of adult teeth.He is naturally upset and has stopped wobbling his tooth.How best to deal with this? Remove the toy altogether? Cut off the tails on the toys(we have 4 of the same thing in case of loss)?
If it was a dummy I would have stopped it ages ago.What should I do? I am cruel to remove his comfort source for the sake of his teeth?
