Honey Bear with Straw


The honey bear bottle by ARK Therapeutic is a fun and easy way to teach babies using a straw, transitioning them straight from bottles to straw drinking – skipping sippy cups altogether! The concern that many therapists have with the sippy cups is they can promote improper tongue and lip positioning that can cause speech problems later on. Dentists are also warning about the tooth decay caused by the liquid that tends to sit in the mouth rather than being swallowed when drinking from sippy cups. Straws are a better alternative, as they strengthen the mouth muscles and encourage lip closure, tongue retraction, and cheek tension. Easy to hold, Lip Blok, see through body design, spill proof lid, safe material and easily to clean are just some of the reasons why parents and caregivers love the honey bear bottle.
