THOUGHT – DENTAL HEALTH AND STRAW CUPS

We are stopping the use of sippy cups here and only using straw or normal cups for now on.

‘Because children suck on sippy cups the way they do bottles, if used too long, it can change the position of the tongue and teeth, potentially causing lisps and articulation problems. According to this Web MD article,the traditional sippy should only be used for about a month. Using cups with a straw are much better for speech development and dental health.’
