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 (inner side from tip to where it meets the index finger.)
3. Circumference around the wrist.

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 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 has a glittery print. The rainbow fabric has gold metallic 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.

LOVE!!! My baby girl is eight years old, and she is ready to stop sucking her thumb. We decided to work with this seller after reading reviews. We are so satisfied! High quality and super cute patterns. Doesn't interfere with her drawing, writing, or playing with her tablet (touch screen). She said its comfortable, and she wants us to buy her a few more to match her outfits. :-) very pleased and would recommend to anyone.

I have ordered 6 thumb guards from this shop over the last couple years. Shipping is always fast, I usually have the item within 1-2 weeks of the order date. They always come looking fantastic. The colors and fabric choices are great and the buckle add on is my favorite thing. On my most recent order, I ordered two different guards. One came in just slightly too small for some reason and she was extremely fast in answering my questions and resolving the issue. I had a new guard a few days later that fit much better on my son's thumb and got to keep the old one as well. I use these to keep my son's thumb out of his mouth at daycare and plan to continue using them and ordering more until he's finally ready to stop sucking his thumb. I cannot recommend these or this shop enough!

Love, love, love! The seller shipped this item within 2 days of me ordering, and it was exactly as I expected it to be. My daughter loves the pattern and has kept it on for the past week and a half! THANK YOU!
