Also, choose a chewy that will reach to muscles in the back of the mouth. Some people like to keep a chewy with them at all times. Because of this tendency you want to choose a holder that is safe for the child. If you are choosing a chewy for self-regulation or strengthening, the easier the access to the chewy, the more frequently it will be used.
