Finger Guard

17 Jun

About a month ago I posted this picture.

Jason was really bad about sucking his fingers and Will hated it. I felt like it was hurting their relationship. Finally I did something about it. I went online and bought a finger guard.

I put it on Jason and for the first 3 days I heard a lot of complaining. It was tough, but I understood where he was coming from. After the first 3 days he didn’t complain at all. It wasn’t even a big deal. He even wanted to help cut the strap when we washed it or put a new one on.

After a little short of 4 weeks we took it off. Has it worked you asked? You bet! He doesn’t suck his fingers at all. It is great. We still have the finger guard around, and will probably keep it around for the next few months just in case. I am very satisfied with the results. It was worth the money (yes it was spendy), time, and complaining. Life in the Wu house is much happier. Now if only they had something for Sierra so that she wouldn’t scream any more…

    Well, be a little thankful for Sierr’a scream. I’ve heard WAY worse from other kids.

    Amen about the screaming worse from other kids… I’ll have to remember to either A, nip the finger sucking in the bud before it turns into a habit with Ty or B, buy a finger gaurd 🙂

    They do have some thing for screaming…you ever seen those collars that shock you when you bark….LOL!?

    But glad the guard worked, make sure you pack it in when you come here, I think the trip to Utah two years ago was what started him sucking again.
