We noticed just yesterday that N (22 months) can't straighten her left thumb. At first we freaked out totally wondering how she could have broken it without us knowing about it... then Google came to help and we found what we think it is - Trigger Thumb.
her top part of the thumb is at 90 degrees like it is bent to close a
fist. I don't normally put proper gloves on her, just mittens and don't
bother seperating her thumb into the thumb place. But I got her cute
gloves yesterday and realilsed when I couldn't get that thumb in right.
Looking back at photos it is now so obvious. Yes, we clean her hands every day and dry them but had no "need" to have it straight.
So, has anyone ever come across this? What was the outcome?
