My 17 mo sucks his index finger when sleeping or cuddling his teddy. The finger is now calloused & getting sore - skin has started to split & bleed. Any tips on discouraging/stopping him. Tried a plaster on his finger but he just cried & wouldn't settle to sleep.

put lanolin on it?

Somebody who isnt me [dummy hater] would suggest a dummy, but it might be too late for that?

It'll toughen up.

Yes, it'll toughen up.
