The Baby Grabber was developed to provide pleasure, and to calm and soothe infants who are in the developmental stage of mouthing. Oral exploration exercises the lips, tongue, and jaw to play which is essential for the development of speech sounds. For those infants where hypersensitivity and oral sensory defensiveness is a concern, the Baby Grabber provides a positive oral experience. Oral stimulation often assists in self-organization and transition to textured foods.
The Baby Grabber is a healthy opportunity for your infant to develop biting and chewing skills before food is presented. At four to five months of age, the infant’s jaw opens and closes when the gums are stimulated by touch. This bite-and-release pattern is a way babies get ready to eat solid foods when they are older. Placing the Baby Grabber where the molars will eventually erupt and pushing up slightly, may assist in activating biting and chewing.
The Baby Grabber, designed and developed by an ASHA certified speech-language pathologist, is constructed of a medical grade chewy, resilient material and is latex FREE.
