Just bought two from Fledglings. Expensive, but they stop DS2 from chewing his sleeves so worth it!

thanks so much everyone will investigate tomorrow, will try fledlings first then the novelty warehouse place, hope they come quickly ben is driving me potty with biting his dummies - want to get rid of them as hes getting big now and just chews them so costs a fortune!!

Hi - I was adviseed by Occupational Therapist that aquarium tubing can be used for this purpose. I bought some and can say it definitely does the job! I cut it into lengths of about 10cm. Also have cut into shorter bits and threaded onto dental floss to make chewy bracelets (my ds chews his cuffs). It is cheap, can't be chewed through and is non-toxix. Would definitely recommend it. You can get it from pet shops, it's the tubing that attaches to air pump for aquariums

Hi, I know a really great educational store called Learning SPACE that sell chewy tubes and a wide range of products to suit particular needs. Loads for children with Autism. It only took 3 days to get my stuff!! Hope this helps.

Before buying your chewy tubes make sure you pick the right one!
Yellow are the smallest and for infants
Red are the best for toddlers
Blue for older users
Cheapest I can find on the web - smooth-medium-1836.html

fledglings are great, DD chomps her way through 2 chewy tubes a month at nursery!
