YES! 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 based in the UK and 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 results wear day and night, for hygiene reasons we suggest three guards for each thumb that they suck and offer our highly recommend Thumb Sucking Bundles to help your child.
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.
The Thumbsie® is comfortable to wear and is fitted around the wrist with Velcro® so is adjustable. 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.
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.
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 six years, below are just a few.
We had tried to tackle this a number of times and we thought we had tried every trick in the book. We were rapidly running out of ideas. A big thank you for such a simple but effective idea that really engages children who want to give up thumb sucking but find it tricky. I would (and have) recommend you to friends without hesitation.
I am delighted to report that Lucy has not sucked her thumb for 3 whole weeks, and remains very sure that she is not EVER going to suck her thumb again! I am convinced that she would not have accomplished this without the Thumbsie thumb guard so thanks for your great product… No more thumb sucking habit!!!

I was a little skeptical that this would work but after 6 years of my daughter’s thumb sucking, she tried it. She happily put the thumsie on at night and liked to choose which one to wear. To start with she took it off through the night but gradually didn’t, she even reminded me when I forgot! After 4 weeks no more thumb sucking! We are both over the moon x
