Thumb guard? .._______.. Peru 47222 posts
9th Feb '10

Has any one used a thumb guard to get their child to stop sucking his/her thumb? My 3 year old daughter has her thumb in her mouth all day long and we have tried so many things to get her to stop but nothing is working!
Her two front teeth are protruding more and more from her habitual thumb sucking and I am at a loss for what to do.
After doing some online research I found this product, called the thumbguard.



Has this worked for anyone?

My little brother sucked his tumb until he was 10....My mom tried everything to get him to stop. She ended up having to take him to the Orthodontist to have something placed in his mouth to stop him from sucking his thumb.

I used to suck my thumb until I was about 11 and my teeth are fine. At first the grew crooked but once my baby teeth fell out they turned out ok. My mom used to put nail polish remover on my thumb though:roll: You know how old generations are though haha.

I was going to ask the dentist about putting a gate on my daughter!

Thanks to the links in this thread, though, I don't think I'll have to!

Thanks, mamas! lol
