Mom Approved: Handsocks

Disclaimer: I received a product to review. All opinions are my own.

A little of Snapper's story is known. She has only just begun talking and she turned 3 in September. We have been through a ton of testing and finally she was diagnosed with a significant speech delay and anxiety (most likely due to the speech delay). Part of the anxiety is that she sucks on her fingers and bites her nails. While this does help her cope with the anxiety, it sucking on her fingers hinders her speech development. I always keep teething options for her to keep her from biting her nails and other things she shouldn't be biting on. However, sucking on her fingers is something that I cannot seem to get a handle on, until now.

I was sent a sample of Handsocks to review and had a feeling they would be a wonderful solution and I was right. She likes having something soft on her hands. I put them on her with them folded down so that she can use her hands. When I catch her trying to bite her nails or suck on her fingers, I just fold the cover over and she can't. Sometimes, like during speech therapy, or in the store, I automatically fold the cover over, that way we stop it before it starts when she usually has more anxiety. She doesn't like not being able to use her fingers, so it is a type of deterrent, but I think the feel of the cotton is like her blanket and soothes her.

Handsocks donates to Orphan's Promise each time a pair is sold. Orphan's Promise provides shelter, medical care, food, and education to orphans in the US and around the world. Thank you for each pair that you purchase. We make a difference together. 

Handsock's story is amazing as well. Inventor, Casey Burke Bunn, forgot to pack mittens and layers for her infant daughter. She used ski socks to keep her arms and hands warm, so the idea of Handsocks came to fruition. Casey set out to create the perfect mittens for babies and toddlers- she definitely succeeded.
