This listing is for THE ORIGINAL Reversible Fingersucking Finger Guard Cover to prevent fingersucking:
whatever SIZE,
whatever PATTERN (as seen in the photos here),
whatever COLOR,
whatever YOU NEED...
finger cover as the one seen pictured in these images.

(I cannot and will not use any licensed characters or fabrics that are copyright protected or that are for "home or personal use" - this is against the law and is considered copyright infringement!) Please only choose a fabric as shown in these photos. (some fabrics may be precut and therefore unavailable in specific sizes as they sell out - I will advise asap).

***Don't be fooled by copycats!***

If this is what you are looking for, HERE'S WHAT I NEED FROM YOU: (ONLY 5 Things) In your message to seller please list them in the same order and number each item)

1 - I need the measurement from the tip of the finger to the bend in the wrist. (in inches) (if your child sucks the pointer and the middle finger, I need the middle finger measurement).

2 - Please also give me the length of the same finger alone. From the tip of the finger to the base of the finger (where the "webbing" begins on the finger)

3 - I need to know if it's the left hand or right hand.

4 - I need the measurement around the wrist. It would be best to use a 1 inch strip of paper, wrap it around the wrist and mark where they meet. Then lay it to a ruler and tell me that exact measurement.

5 - Let me know if you have a fabric preference - you can pick based on photo shown in this listing. There may be some fabrics I can no longer offer, I will do my best to accommodate.

6 - Now Double check all those measurements again...as this is a custom order and cannot be refunded.

****PLEASE NOTE: I have found that kids need their fingers to be independent from each other. If you were to tape your two fingers together you would easily become frustrated. It defeats the purpose of "forget it" - and will instead cause you to continually focus on the fingers that are immobile. When only one finger is covered - it won't feel the same to the child if they were to try sucking on just one. I've never had anyone come back and say their child is sucking on the non covered finger. So let's hope you're child is not the first.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This CUSTOM item is NOT ready to ship and can take up to 1-2 weeks to be made and shipped. (please see my current shop announcement)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It will be made with a natural cotton batting and it will be totally reversible, which keeps it fun. You will also receive 1 Binding Post. (To use - put thumb cover on, screw apart binding post, insert tube end in through the grommets and then screw the other piece on.)

**Please understand - pattern placement on fabric may not be the same as the one you are receiving and the color on your monitor may differ ever so slightly from the actual color of the fabric.

***PLEASE be sure to include the requested measurements as shown in the hand image during the check out in "message to seller". If you do not include your measurement at time of check out, your order will take longer to ship.

***To measure wrist, use a strip of paper and mark where they connect - then lay flat against a ruler for an accurate measurement. Do not use string or anything stretchy - as this will not be accurate.

***Please understand I cannot refund or exchange any custom order finger covers that do not fit because you provided the wrong measurements as they are ALL custom made to fit your child esp once I place the grommets. Make sure you double check your measurements!

(Velcro will be used for children under 3 years old due to small parts and choking hazards. I don't use buckles because they pinch, and children can still get buckles off with one hand!)

If you want to know about how the M.E. Thumb Sucking Guard came to be...here's our story:

My older daughter (M) started sucking her thumb at 8 1/2 months old. My younger daughter (E) began at 4 1/2 months old. They have been sucking their thumbs ever since. Not a day went by or a moment, when their thumbs were not in their mouths! I feel your pain, it's a hard habit to break, and I know that first hand! (no pun intended!)

Since I have my own sewing business - I finally came up with a reversible thumb cover that they were willing to wear when they were ready to stop sucking their thumb. They struggled to be ready, but the day finally came.

The rule was to wear their thumb cover from 6pm to 6pm. If they did (without complaining and trying to renegotiate) they would get a "reward" from our little treasure chest. It was a little box filled with items from a party store, the dollar store or other dollar spots.

Some nights were hard, but since they couldn't take their thumb covers off by themselves, they stopped complaining and even stopped thinking about it. It became so comfortable to wear, they often forgot they were wearing it. I helped them take it off for washing hands and eating, but then we put them back on. They also charted their progress on a monthly chart with a sticker for each day that was successful, and an "x" for the hard days. They have both been thumb free after wearing their covers for 3 months.

Some experts recommend starting the process with night time only. Once that is mastered, then do day time. But I say do what is right for you and your child.
