How do I stop my daughter from sucking her fingers?

My daughter aged 4 continues to suck her fingers (using alternate hands). Can anyone suggest techniques that have worked for them?. I am quite concerned now as her front teeth are protruding and the dentist advises me that I need to nip this in the bud sooner rather than later. Thanks

You used to be able to get hold of this non-toxic disgusting taste varnish to put on nails to prevent you from biting them. Don't know if still available - my Mum got it for me when I was a child - I'm 37 now!!

Might be worth asking in _chat or similar as this area would be the last place I'd expect to see it viewed by most users...

Thanks all, I will check the in_chat. Unfortunately I have tried the varnish from Boots and it didn't work.
