We’re sure you are aware of the problems with thumb and finger sucking but we have a solution that’s recommended by dentists. Suited to children 3 – 12 years, our fabric guards are comfortable to wear, can be worn during the day and night without limiting the child’s ability to play or use their hands.

Stop Thumb Sucking Bundle

Ideally children need 3 Thumbsies® thumb guards for each thumb they suck, as it is important that they wear their thumb guard all the time (both day and night). By having 3 guards you will always have a clean one to pop on. For the best results we highly recommend our Thumb Sucking Bundles, where you can choose your favourite fabrics. Buying a bundle gives you the best package to help your child to give up thumb sucking, as many customers tell us.
