How to stop thumb sucking in a fun, positive and memorable way: If you want your child to stop thumb sucking, consider making it fun, positive and enjoyable. It is hard for kids to give up thumb sucking because it is so comforting and they probably have been doing it since they were babies. Rather than replace their thumb sucking with a plastic thumbguard or a bitter thumb sucking remedy such as bitter polish that kids despise, Get a Thumbuddy! Remember to never shame a child into stopping thumb sucking…It will only make them want to suck more! Introduce Thumbuddy To Love® to your child and they will want to break the habit. They will learn that growing up can be fun like the heroes in the Thumbuddy To Love™ books and by taking their matching thumb puppets everywhere including to bed. The fun sticker charts remind them that they can give up thumb sucking easily. Thumbsuckers love Thumbuddy to Love®!

Welcome to® – we are innovators and creators of a thumb sucking tool to help children break the habit. Is your three year old child still sucking her thumb? Do you find your four year old boy sucking his pacifier while watching tv or at school? Shouldn’t they have outgrown the habit long ago? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you have come to the right site. While thumb sucking comes as natural habits in toddlers, it is a common practice that children use as a calming mechanism, and breaking the habit can be a challenging task for parents. It is said that young children also use thumb sucking to soothe and comfort themselves. Since thumb sucking is a relaxing practice to them, it often eases their minds and makes them fall asleep quicker and easier. It is a natural habit up until they are about two years old. But for some, outgrowing this habit is more challenging. Nevertheless, is there a point when parents should be concerned about thumb sucking? New studies show that too much pacifier sucking or thumb sucking after the age of two can interfere with the proper growth of the mouth and the alignment of the teeth. For distressed parents, how exactly can you stop that thumb sucking or pacifier sucking habit? You have come to the right site –Thumbuddy To Love® is your best remedy! The creators of this product believe that the best approach for breaking the thumb or pacifier sucking habit is to provide a positive learning tool while making the process fun for children. Our line of story books is complete with two different characters that cater to thumb sucking boys and girls. With the introduction of Thumbuddy To Love® to your child, you will impact their lives by breaking the habit. For the girls, we have Bellerina Sue and Fireman Fred for boys, each come with an illustrated hard back story book and matching thumb puppet.  For those pacifier sucking babies, we have added our newest character, Binky Fairy®. This Binky Fairy® thumb puppet character comes with a hard back story book which is geared to help children let go of pacifier sucking gently. With your purchase of under twenty dollars for each puppet and story book, your child will learn that growing up and giving up thumb or pacifier sucking can be fun and memorable with these lovable characters. The best part about purchasing your Thumbuddy To Love® tool kit is that your child can use it anytime, anywhere, from car rides to bedtime.
