P’s in a Pod are solid and offer a firmer surface for biting. Young children enjoy grasping the P with their newly developing fine motor skills.  The bitable stem of the P reaches back into the molar area providing valuable proprioceptive input into the TMJ during biting.

  • Encourages up/down jaw motion – Practice needed for developing biting and chewing skills, and important for later speech production.
  • Encourages side to side tongue movement – Skill needed to move food side to side in chewing
  • Allows proper and natural growth of the hard palate – Does not indent baby’s malleable palate.
  • Encourages variation in sound production – The mouth is open and available for sound exploration.
  • Allows an open mouth for breathing – Helpful when a child is congested or has a cold and the nose is stuffed up.
  • Promotes proper alignment of the upper and lower dentition as teeth erupt.
