I received a sample from Glovey Huggey for the sole purpose of this review
My daughter started sucking her 2 middle fingers at just 3 months old. It was truly the cutest thing back then. She would suck them when she was tired, instead of crying, it was an easy way for me to realize her cues and get her down for nap or bed on time.
But at 6, it's certainly not as cute.
NOTHING will get this child to stop. We've tried gloves, she pulls them off. We have tried spices, she just wipes it off on her bed. Nothing was working. Until I discovered Glovey Huggey.
You see, Avery is ruining her fingers. She has callouses on her fingers (she bites down when she's sleeping) and her nails are also ruined. So this habit really needed to be kicked in the bud now.
Emerson claimed the stuffy :)
I guess 2 middle fingers is very popular for finger sucking. Glovey Huggey only makes one for thumbs and 2 fingers (index/middle or middle/ring).
We got the Rainbow Love Fingers gloves in the size Large (4+ years). They fit her perfectly. They have an adjustable wrist band to make it tighter/looser. Avery is on the middle setting so they should fit her for a while now.
We used this glove for almost 2 weeks and then took our trip to Disney. I brought it with me, but we haven't used it. She's still sucking her fingers, so we'll be back to using it again.
The 2nd night she pulled her fingers out of the glove and was sucking her fingers, but we have a camera in her room and I was able to see that she did it, so I went in her room and corrected her.
The glove is made out of a Spandex material, so it's really comfortable and doesn't hinder the hand in any way.
Each package comes with 2 gloves and a stuffed animal.
Price: $39.95. This is a bit much, but really it's worth it instead of damage to your child. We've been lucky that Avery has no teeth issues and no serious issues with her fingers yet.
