Stopping Sucking – A New Year’s Resolution you can keep?

The start of a New Year, a new decade no less, is the perfect opportunity to make a change.  But unlike our promised gym regime or diet, the resolution to stop sucking can last long beyond January 2020.

Why Reading with Your Child is More Than Just for Fun….

Reading a book with your child often concludes a tiring day of caring for them. It is the moment when you’d rather reach for a glass of wine rather than a book you feel you must have read at least 200 times! You have just got them out of the bath (along with all the trauma that entails) and settled[...]

Thumbsie® thumb sucking book – an interview with the author

Writing a positive book to accompany the Thumbsie® products seemed like the perfect, child-friendly addition to this gentle thumb sucking solution.  We hope that a story will be a fun way that more children can learn that there is a solution to their thumb sucking problem, and feel encouraged to give up sucking as easily as Ted does in the[...]

Thumbsie® is all about making children (and families) happy.  It’s a gentle, effective and fun method of giving up thumb sucking, which offers support, reward and success.  In fact, it has been so successful for so many families that we wanted to spread the Thumbsie® message as widely as possible - children can give up thumb sucking and can do it[...]
