This is mostly to have on record for myself so I can look back one day and show Anna Claire what she did to herself.  Her thumb is completely raw, cracking, and bleeding.  I called the makers of the Thumb Guard this morning to get some information and the guy told me they usually recommend it for 3 years and up.  He said that babies tend to just suck the other thumb or different fingers.  I put a band-aid on her thumb at about 9 this morning and it is 1:45 pm and it's still there.  I just laid her down for a nap with it on, while going to her room to check frequently to make sure she doesn't try and eat it.  However, she has been down for 20 minutes talking as loud as possible, so I'm not so sure she will be napping today.  I hope this will help her to quit, but if nothing else, at least let her thumb heal.

These pictures are not the best quality, but I think you can get the point!

Oh my goodness! It looks kind of painful. She doesnt act like it hurts?? Silly girl!
Hope the band aid works! :)

I know Julie, I agree. I wondered if she would cry in the bath but she didn't. I took it off to give her a bath and when she got out she put it right in her mouth, so on went another band-aid. It has worked all day today. I at least want it to have time to heal, b/c it does look awful.
