I bought this for my 6month old with Down Syndrome and he loves it! I bought the smooth and textured versions. He loves the textured versions best! He responses so good to the extra sensory input and has helped improve his chewing a lot!
A shorter stem + sensory bumps; Click to see all 4 colors|||ARK's Baby Grabber® (Textured) is just like the Baby Grabber but with added bumps and nubs for extra sensory input.
Each Baby Grabber is designed to calm and soothe infants who are in the early stages of development. At approximately 5-6 months, babies start mouthing and chewing in order to strengthen their mouth muscles and exercise their lips, tongue, and jaw. This oral exploration prepares them to eat solid foods and to make speech sounds later on. The Baby Grabber® provides a safe outlet for babies to develop these skills. It can also assist in self-organization, in the transition from puréed to textured foods, and in soothing sore gums. While all surfaces of the Grabber® can be chewed on, the extension provides input all the way to the back molar area. Measures approximately 4 inches in length and just under 2 inches across the loop.
The light blue, yellow, and pink Baby Grabbers are soft and chewy. The turquoise Baby Grabber is firmer yet still chewy and pliable. Teething babies may prefer the firmer option, as it provides added resistance and input to the gums.
