The Honey Bear with Straw is proven effective with children as young as eight months. The Honey Bear with Straw allows you to control the flow of liquid into a child´s mouth and teaches children to straw drink. All you have to do is gently squeeze the Honey Bear’s tummy to push the liquid up the flexible tubing into the child’s mouth. The child will soon learn very quickly how to suck and this will promote lip closure and tongue retraction. It can also be used to transition from bottle-feeding to cup drinking. You will appreciate the spill-proof lid. Instructions included.
Some children like to bite on straws and flatten them over time. This Honey Bear’s flexible flexing on the other hand, keeps its shape very well. This flexible tubing can be purchased separately.
