Sammons Preston Rubber Massage Brush on Amazon

These are “old school” oral motor infant teething, gum massagers, oral sensory tools.  These are not made for babies that already have teeth! They can and will bite through this fairly easily with teeth!  

It is a good item for babies who don’t have teeth yet, and who are needing some massage on their gums to help them feel better while they are trying to get their teeth to push through!  

It is also a good oral sensory tool for de-sensitizing or for stimulating an infants mouth to help with feeding strategies.

On Amazon: OgoSport – Grippi Bottle Ball

Baby bottle holder – slide this on over the bottle so the baby can learn to hold their own bottle.  This gadget can be good for little ones that have gross motor delays, fine motor delays, and general difficulties with bringing hands to the middle (midline) to hold things.

Globbles on Amazon

These Globbles are an interesting Tactile Sensory Processing item! They are very sticky, and even stick to each other well!  Kids can squeeze, poke, smash them and experience a unique type of texture when using them!  For smaller kids, use with caution and/or adult supervision.
