At five to six months, babies start mouthing and chewing to strengthen their mouth muscles and exercise their lips, tongue, and jaw. The P-shaped Baby Grabber® provides a safe outlet for babies to develop these skills. Soft and chewy, it can also assist in self-organization and in soothing sore gums. All surfaces of the Grabber® can be chewed on, but the extension provides input to the back molar area.
The Bite Tube is a hollow chew tool with a different diameter on each end. Hollow Bite Tubes are used as an oral motor tool to work on jaw strength and stability. The tube-like extension is perfect for babies who want their chew tool to collapse more, whether as a sensory chew and/or in feeding therapy.
When the baby is developmentally old enough, put puréed foods inside the hollow tube for biting/chewing practice. When the baby bites down, he will be rewarded with a taste of food.
Because the hollow tube provides less resistance than solid chews like the Baby Grabber, this is an excellent starter chew tool for babies.
The double-sided Flat Textured Spoons are perfect for babies learning lip control and how to remove food from a spoon. Use them to introduce texture to puréed foods like yogurt, applesauce, etc.
Use the feeding spoon textured side facing up to stimulate the upper lip or textured side down to stimulate the lower lip and tongue.
Or start with the lines and eventually progress to the bumps for increasing tactile input.
Please note: Flat Textured Spoons are NOT meant to be used as a chew tool. They are too rigid and too thin for chewing.
