Some food for thought!
I know many parents are currently using similar products to feed their baby. P2B is not a fan. Let me explain why …..
Things parents may not have thought of:
Remember .. there is a difference between a gag and a choke.
By using such products parents are not only delaying this development – a life skill – but your baby is only getting the sugar, not the fibre from the fruit. The fibre is trapped within the teat/net. This increase sugar can lead to early tooth decay which statistically is on the rise amongst children.
From a Speech therapist point of view:
Can I strongly advise against these from a speech language pathologists point of view. These encourage sucking rather than a chewing motion. Chewing is important for the muscle development around the mouth and ears. The ears need a chewing motion to help clear fluids from the middle ear canal. If the fluid doesn’t clear they end up with ear infections and hearing loss.
These were originally designed only for frozen breast milk/ formula to aid with teething pain
Please don’t use them for foods.
Hope that helps!!!
