Purchase one for each arm…I didn’t at first, but soon realized the need, when my son said “it works, but I can still suck my other thumb”. He’s 4-years old, and has been sucking his thumb for a couple of years, after we got him to give up the pacifier at two. The thumb hasn’t been so easy, though. He sucks it only at night, so it’s been hard for him to realize he’s doing it while sleeping.
Now that he’s almost 5, and permanent teeth are on the horizon, we’ve been trying to figure out how to get him to stop.
I chanced upon these during my searching, and am so glad I did. I used another reviewer’s suggestion and told him he looks like a super hero with them on. We’re now on the third week, and seem to be having success.
It really helps that he has taken ownership, and is actually willing to stop the habit. He puts them on himself, and we just check the fit. He wears them under his pajamas, and hasn’t tried to take them off at all.
We haven’t incorporated any reward system, or anything of the sort. I think the praise we’ve given him for his efforts go a long way, though.
Kudos to the maker for a great product.
