Elliot was a habitual thumb sucker. He's now 8 and his big teeth are coming in, their pretty crooked and spaced. He's definitely got a lisp and has since he was pretty young. I'm not concerned about it. I think it's cute and he is completely understandable. I'm sure once he's old enough to get braces that should correct most of it.
I've never brought it up with the Dr. because I'm sure its a dental thing.
