Ark Therapeutic Bear Bottle Kit for Straw Drinking

ARK’s Bear Bottle Kit is a fun and easy way to teach toddler to drink from straw. It’s also an excellent way to teach babies using 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. And this bear straw cup is the best sippy cup in Australia.

Buy 2 honey bear baby bottles: one to use indoors and one for when you’re out and about with your child. Or can buy some more to offer them as presents to family and friends who need them. It is also a perfect gift for a baby shower or when visiting a friend with a baby who has just started in solids or has a child with special needs (autism, cleft palate, and feeding issues, struggling with liquids). They will thank you for making their lives easier and loving you for helping restore their child’s confidence.


      • ARK Therapeutic’s smart honey bear straw cup Australia is a rewarding and effortless way to make drinking easier for beginners and/or children with oral motor difficulties.

        There are many reasons why parents and caregivers love the honey bear bottle:

        Unique valve at the bottom of the straw - controls the direction of the fluid when the honey bear bottle Australia is squeezed. The liquid flows up into the straw but does not flow back down.

        Squeezable Honey Bear Design - this squeezable straw cup allows you to easily press the bear’s belly until fluid reaches the top of the straw and release. The liquid will stay at the top of the straw, thereby decreasing the effort required to drink.

        Easy to Hold– the honey bear straw cup Australia is 16 cm long, and 5 cm wide - perfect for little hands to grab and hold.

        Wide, Easy-Flow Drink Straws – ARK Therapeutic’s bear bottle comes with reusable and chewable straws, a durable alternative to traditional straws. Compatible with most standard 0.64 cm diameter straws should you need more down the road.

        Lip Blok®- prevents kids from biting on the straw or putting it too far into their mouths when drinking from the honey bear bottle Australia.

        See-Through Body Design – each bear straw cup is transparent to make it easier for kids to see the liquid inside and watch it pass through the straw while helping reduce spills.

        Leak-Resistant, Spill Proof Lid – screw-on lids to prevent leaks when playing with the bottle indoors or holding it while in the car

        Safe material– Ark's bear bottle kit is designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA, BPA free, lead-free, phthalates free, PVC free, and latex-free.

        Easy to clean – dishwasher safe.

        Free instructions booklet– all the information you need at your fingertips to teach toddler to drink from straw.

        Features:

        • Holds 230 mils of fluid

        • Not recommended for carbonated beverages. Recommended for thin liquids (water, milk, juice without pulp, etc). In general, if you’re using thickened liquids, “nectar” consistency works fine.

        • The Kit 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® (3/4”), and instructions on how to teach straw drinking.

Great way to teach baby to use straw

I was sceptical about whether my eight month old would figure out how to suck a straw with this bottle, but it worked perfectly in only one session! She can now happily suck fluid through a straw! Recommend this product.

Happy straw sipping baby!

My baby doesn't have oral developmental issues, but refused to even try straw cups for the longest time. The first few times I used this bottle I thought it would go the same way, but once we tried a little bit of apple juice he was happy to drink and now he finally takes straws! It was only possible with the clever design of this bottle which keeps the water up in the straw so baby doesn't have to sip before discovering what's inside. I bought this bottle as a last resort after trying other common straw sippy cups and I'm relieved to say it worked. Sensory Stand was also lovely - shipped quickly and left a handwritten note in the parcel! Thank you.
