15 x 6 x 6 cm

This Bear Bottle is a fun and friendly way to make drinking easier for people with oral motor difficulties.

It’s also an excellent way to transition babies straight from bottles to straw drinking – skipping sippy cups altogether! Most sippy cups promote improper tongue and lip positioning that can cause speech problems later on. Straws are a better alternative, as they strengthen the mouth muscles and encourage tongue retraction, cheek tension, and lip closure.

The Bear Bottle features a unique valve that controls the direction of fluid – liquid flows up into the straw but does not flow back down. Simply squeeze the bear’s belly until fluid reaches the top of the straw and release. Fluids will stay at the top of the straw, thereby decreasing the effort required to drink. Highly recommended for individuals who tend to aspirate or have a weak suck with difficulties generating and maintaining suction.

The ensemble includes 1 easy-to-squeeze Bear Bottle with a snap-close cap, 1 Select-Flow valve, 2 eight-inch long tubing straws, 1 yellow Lip Blok® (0.75 in), and instructions. The tubing straw is a reusable, chewable, durable alternative to traditional straws, and the Lip Blok prevents kids from biting on the straw or putting it too far into their mouths. 

Details:

  • No BPA, PVC, lead, phthalates, or latex;
  • Dishwasher-safe;
  • Holds 8 oz of fluid;
  • Bottle measures approximately 2 x 2.5 x 6 in;
  • Recommended for thin liquids (water, milk, juice without pulp, etc), and not recommended for carbonated beverages;
  • If you’re using thickened liquids, in general for most thickener brands, “nectar” consistency works fine. If you trim the tapered end of the valve to open up the flow, a “honey” consistency will work but will be harder to suck through the straw. Pudding does not work, as it’s too thick to drink through even a regular straw without a valve.
