What is it?
A chewing tube is a tool that could help improve your little baby’s oral motor skills. i.e It would help her open and close her jaw while speaking and feeding, strengthen the up-down biting motion and more.
How does one go about using it?
- Place the chewy tube into the side of the mouth
- The ‘bitable’ stem of the tube should be placed on the cutting surface of the molar teeth and gums.
- Allow the baby to chew the tube.
This would help improve the baby’s sensory input into the jaw and help improve jaw stability.
