  • I used stop and grow nail stuff on one of my little ones, just below the lip, it tastes foul and after a few applications and tears they broke the habit, but if it's sore a light smear of vaseline before the stop and grow, works well when you want them to stop using pacifiers as well and as a joke around a "friends" beer glass rim :o)

I may well be a stress of nervous reaction to something that's troubling your son at the moment. Maybe it's something that in his eyes, is a really huge problem. Can you sit down with him and have a real heart-to-heart talk with him? You don't mention how old he is, but I trust you can. I hope this is of some help.
  • That's a bad habit I used to have as a little kid. I'd try putting a dab of nail polish remover under his lip, so it'd taste nasty. Or it could be a sign of developing anxiety.
