Thumb Huggers are thumb sucking guards for kids (and adults) who are ready to stop thumb sucking but are having a hard time breaking the habit, especially during the night or during downtime. Most children can't break the thumb sucking habit because they suck without realizing they are doing it. The Thumb Hugger will help prevent your child from unintentionally sucking their thumb. The Thumb Hugger covers your child's thumb and wraps around their wrist, secured with Velcro.

**Please read full description before purchasing.**

Note: This not meant to force a child to stop sucking their thumb, but to help remind and encourage those who are ready to break the habit but need help breaking the habit. Your child WILL be able to remove the guard if he/she is really determined to do so. There are no refunds for guards that your child doesn't want to keep on. That said, these HAVE often been used for younger children, as well, who are more resistant to breaking the habit. By adding a buckle to make it more difficult (but not always impossible) to remove, along with a reward chart to encourage them to keep the guard on many parents have had success with those little ones who need to break the habit to prevent dental or finger damage. **Check out the other listings in my shop for a digital copy of a print-at-home reward chart**

. . . . . . . . . . .
For correct sizing please provide me with these measurements (leave your measurements in the personalization section):

1. From tip of thumb straight down to the bend in the wrist.
2. Length of thumb (on inner side of thumb, from tip to where it meets the index finger.)
3. Circumference around the wrist.

There is an example photo to help you see where to take the measurements.

Do NOT guess sizes. Exact measurements are needed. There is no need to add extra space for room to grow. I add 1/4" inch to all measurements, except the wrist, which needs to be snug.
The guards will fit either hand, no need to specify which hand.
. . . . . . . . . . .

Optional: If you would like to have a small, thin, curved buckle clasp added, in addition to the Velcro, to the guards to make it more difficult for your child to remove, that option is available for an additional $5 in price.

This listing is for ONE Thumb Sucker Guard. They do NOT come in pairs. If you need two, order two. You will only be charged shipping for the first guard.

Note: The Purple Floral fabric has a glittery print. The rainbow fabric has a metallic gold print.

With international shipping, some countries require a additional charge upon pick up of package. This is out of my control, please know what to expect with your post office's procedures for international shipping.

Absolutely love it, my 1.5 year old has sucked her thumb raw so I've been treating it and wrapping it in gauze and medical tape and this had become a nuisance for me and her. I ordered this, it came quickly and it's perfect, very happy with the design we picked, it fits perfect, baby can't unlatch it or unbuckle it, I paid the extra for the buckle and I'm glad because I know my little stinker would unlatch it otherwise but with this buckle she can't. She seems super comfortable with it didn't fuss when I put it on her like she did with the gauze and tape and she uses her whole hand and fingers like nothing has changed. Thank you so much! (Attached pics sorry they aren't the best what 1.5 year old do you know that sits still lol)

Just got ours in and it's perfect. And the donut fabric is adorable. I love the little buckle which is great for my little one who knows how to take Velcro off. Thank you! I highly recommend. It's very well made as well.

I ordered two of the thumb guards. One with the baby shark print and another with the owl print. They arrived sooner than expected and looked great. One of them was missing the buckle I added to the order BUT I messaged her about it and she was SO accommodating and she offered to immediately send me the another one with a buckle. It was no hassle at all. That’s great customer service and I think everyone would appreciate that. The material was so soft, exactly what I wanted,for it to be comfortable for my 2.5 year old. They fit so perfectly. We used it that same night after we washed them & it’s been a breeze since then. She loves her guards. We are so thankful and confident these will stop the sucking at night. Definitely 5 stars all around

TL;DR these are amazing. We bought two! We bought a guard from this seller before! It arrived so fast, but our daughter was not ready. We put the guard (purple hearts) up and tried again recently. We tried a harder, silicone guard from a commercial retailer on the main thumb and used our first purchase on the opposite. The harder guard chafed and left marks. My daughter (3 5) also chewed it nonstop. So back to the original. We got the flowers recently in the mail (so fast!). The measurements were perfect and the clasp is better than our older model (which kind of sticks--could be from it being much older). Love these and so does my daughter! They are doing the trick and we are almost done!
