We took a leap of faith with Thumbsie

"Livvy was an avid thumb sucker from three weeks old. We thought it was cute and were pleased she could self-sooth from an early age! As she got older we realised her thumb sucking was becoming more of an issue, especially as her thumb was frequently in during the day when she was speaking or colouring/ learning to write letters[...]
