She had a difficult time falling asleep the first two nights as she couldn’t bend her arm all the way. If your child resists wearing it in the beginning, you might try putting it on after they are asleep. After the second night she saw that it was helping her and developed a level of comfort wearing it; she found that sleeping on her back or with her hand above her head was the most comfortable position.
She was really motivated to quit. Her big sister teased her and so she wanted help. We made a two week plan and agreed on a buying her a craft kit she wanted if she could not suck her thumb for 14 days. Each morning after a successful night, we put a smiley face on the calendar so she could visually see her progress, and I gave her a small reward – either a quarter for the piggy bank or just a promise of extra dessert. And I gave her praise whenever I saw her relaxing without sucking her thumb, when she previously would have been.
The product is extremely well made and is durable. The material is soft with happy colors. On the inside there is a spongy cushion. My advice is to put it on as loose as possible still making sure it is tight enough not to come off.
It is super easy to put on and adjust. On the third night James put it on himself (although upside down). Velcro straps make it easily adjustable to difference arm sizes. The "stopper" on the inside of the elbow is what prevents the hand from reaching the face.
I’m sure this would fit a 3 year old just fine, and kids a little older than James (8) too. If your child is much bigger than average then measure your child’s elbow before buying – AROUND THE ELBOW.
Although we did not use them, it includes 50 zip-ties that can lock the straps on so your child cannot take Nipit off. I can see how this would be useful for some kids who are really stubborn, but they sure wouldn't like it. At least the threat of using the zipties would probably get most kids to cooperate.
I can’t think of any negatives.
Now that he's almost 5, and permanent teeth are on the horizon, we've been trying to figure out how to get him to stop.
I chanced upon these during my searching, and am so glad I did. I used another reviewer's suggestion and told him he looks like a super hero with them on. We're now on the third week, and seem to be having success.
It really helps that he has taken ownership, and is actually willing to stop the habit. He puts them on himself, and we just check the fit. He wears them under his pajamas, and hasn't tried to take them off at all.
We haven't incorporated any reward system, or anything of the sort. I think the praise we've given him for his efforts go a long way, though.
Kudos to the maker for a great product.
