Well, I've been a thumbsucker for as long as I can remember. I had a friend as a kid and we discovered we both had the same secret. She was the only one who knew what I did until I met my husband. I was terrified to tell him but once I did I was so relieved. He was very supportive and encouraged me to do it around him. Recently I asked him what he would think if I had a soother in place of my thumb. He immediately told me to go buy one and try it out. I loved it, he loved it, it was amazing. The other day I found out about NUK 5, did some searching talked to my husband, we ordered one and are currently awaiting it's arrival.
