A fun, soothing teether for babies 4-24 months old, Chewy Q’s encourage early mouthing experiences that support the transition from tongue exploration to lateral jaw action, facilitating the development of the muscles needed for speech biting and chewing skills.
Chewy Qs are used for:
- Mature tongue movement by providing tactile stimulation (stem-part of the Q) from side to side and extended tongue exploration. This is especially true at 6 months (and beyond) when the baby’s tongue naturally matures beyond vertical movement and develops motion on a horizontal plane of movement inside the mouth.
- Up and down jaw motion needed for biting and chewing skills. Using the stem part of the Q as an object of oral interest, a 6 or 7 month old baby will naturally position the stem on the side of the jaw to bite on it. This biting helps to mature and strengthen the muscles used constantly closing the jaw for biting, chewing and talking.
- Maintains a healthy upper and lower jaw bite unlike rigorous pacifier use or thumb sucking.
- Healthy hard palate formation by preventing malformations to the palate due to aggressive
pacifier use (impingement of the pacifier bulb into the palate).
