I read that as 9 week old and was going to suggest a swaddle hmm

Good job I read the OP twice! Coukd you work on the "It's babyish" negative offensive. Talk about the thumb sucking in a negative way - that it looks silly, babyish, he's too big for that.

There's a nasty tasting clear nail polish you can put on.

A reward system for when he doesn't thumb suck.
