How I Stopped My Toddler Thumb Sucking

My name is Jo, I am a mother of three. Thumbsie® was created from a real need that presented itself when Isabel, my third daughter, tried to give up thumb sucking.

We took Isabel’s dummy away at the age of 3 and thought that she would stop sucking  just as her sisters had done – but unfortunately she started to thumb suck instead and it became a real habit!

We had considered all the other products out there: nasty tasting nail polish, plasters and even the expensive thumb guards but none of them appealed.

A Thumbsie® thumb sucking glove was the only thing that worked for Isabel and our lives have all been happier since.

Within three weeks she had managed to stop thumb sucking during the day and a week later was ready to go to bed without wearing them. Let’s hope that like Isabel, they help more children.

You can read more about Isabel’s thumb sucking habit and find out how you can prevent the problems with thumb sucking on our website! Please take a look at our online shop for fabric thumb guards and finger guards to choose your size and materials.

And if your child has benefited from a Thumbsie®, why not submit your own Thumbsie review?

I was really proud to have been nominated for Families Online Homepreneur of the Year 2016. The online magazine got together with MyHermes to find the UK for the most inspiring homepreneurs; a busy parent AND a business owner.  And I reached the final 7, which was such great news. I really appreciated everyone who voted for me.
