Does wearing a Thumbsie® really work?
It worked for my daughter and has worked for so many other children across the world. Read what parents are saying about their experiences and how Thumbsie® worked for them.
We want children to succeed. We want it to be as fun as possible for them. Thumbsie® is the only website in the UK dedicated to helping children to stop thumb and finger sucking. We don’t do anything else!
The Thumbsie® fabric thumb guard helps remind children that they are about to put their thumb into their mouths it also acts as a physical barrier. If worn constantly, over time they can help a child break the thumb sucking habit. For best result wear day and night, for hygiene reasons we suggest three guards for each thumb that they suck and offer an automatic discount at checkout.
Thumbsies® is being recommended by dentists and orthodontists all over the world. Read what three of them have to say about on the problems with thumb sucking and how it effects the teeth along with why they recommend Thumbsies®.
Success is not guaranteed and some children may take longer than others. Thumbsies® should be seen as an aid to help your child to stop sucking. It can help children at those difficult times such as in the car, in front of the television and when they are tired.
How does the Thumbsie® work?
The Thumbsie® is comfortable to wear and is fitted around the wrist with Velcro. It can help remind a child that they are about to suck their thumb, we don’t usually find that the child wants to suck the Thumbsie®. If worn day and night then eventually the habit will become less and the child will want to suck their thumb less.
How long will it take for my Thumbsie® to work?
As we know all children are different and therefore will take different amounts of time to stop any habit. We did hear from one parent who said that her child stopped after wearing the Thumbsie® for just one night, others have written to say that it took over 6 months. However long it takes it’s worth preserving with and remember whilst they are wearing at Thumbsie® they are not sucking their thumb.
Do you have any success stories?
Yes, we have lots of success stories, as we have helped lots of families with thumb and finger suckers break the habit over the past five years, below are just a few.
