Is The Thumble® safe to use on my baby?
Yes! Filing is the safest method. Often a baby fingertip can be nicked using baby nail clippers even when used properly as babies don’t tend to sit still! Our product is intended for use by an adult and is not a toy so when not in use please keep your Thumble® and nail files stored away in your Thumble® storage pouch.
How often should I file my baby’s nails?
Baby's nails do grow quickly, so you may have to file their fingernails twice a week. Baby’s toenails don’t grow as quickly so if you’re using it on their toenails too they might need to be done about twice a month.
How long should each disposable nail file last?
Each nail file should last at least one sitting depending on the length of your baby’s nails. The nail file will last longer if you are using the Thumble® regularly to keep the nails short but if your baby’s nails have become longer between sittings this will reduce the nail file’s lifespan.
How should I stick the nail file to the Thumble®?
It is important to stick the nail file firmly to the Thumble®. You should push hard on the edges and the centre of the nail file to ensure the adhesive makes good contact with the Thumble®. The nail file should stay stuck to the Thumble® for the nail filing session. It will eventually pull away from the Thumble® when stored away in the pouch but can be stuck down again when next needed.
What is the Thumble® made out of?
The Thumble® is made out of a mixture of polypropylene and a flexible elastomer. It is latex free.
Does the Thumble® come in different sizes?
As the Thumble® is flexible and therefore should fit most thumbs.
If you find the Thumble® a little loose on your thumb, you can tighten the fit by pressing the top of the Thumble® down into the cavity between your fingers. Additional tightening can be achieved by squeezing the Thumble® together from the sides.
If you still have problems with the fitting after trying both of the tightening methods please contact us.
Can the Thumble® be worn with long nails?
Yes, the Thumble® was specifically designed to be used with long nails. The front of the Thumble® has an opening for your nail to fit through.
How should I store my Thumble® and nail files product?
Our products come with either a drawstring storage pouch or a plastic storage case, which is great to keep your Thumble® and nail files all in one place.
