Yay! I’ve found another item to add to my “If you like (insert therapy product), then try this item!” list.
- Increased stimulation to the tongue when eating
- A small bowl size helps provide appropriately sized bites
The problem(s) families have reported:
- Textured spoons are only available to purchase through the internet or speciality catalogue
- They are difficult to find individually necessitating the purchase of bulk quantities (therefore increasing price anywhere from $11-32 depending on the company)
Thankfully, I’ve found a product that solves both of these problems. A family recently came into the clinic with spoons by Playtex for Baby Einstein. There is just a bit of texture on the back of the spoon bowl and have a smaller shape – perfect for little mouths! They can by purchased locally at most Target stores or online through Amazon. And you get 2 for less than $5.
So if your therapist recommends a textured spoon try this spoon is made by Playtex for Baby Einstein.
