Most of us don’t think about how a child’s mouth develops, but there is a developmental process that impacts feeding, speech skills, and more.  

Feeding Specialist and Speech-Language Pathologist, Diane Bahr, is back with us to talk about what most people don’t know about mouth development, mouth behaviors, and mouth toys. 

She’ll talk with us about the process, common problems, and best practices.

We'll talk about the pros and cons of pacifiers and thumb sucking and how to successfully wean children from these behaviors and set them on the path to good mouth development and so much more. 

Learn more about mouth and feeding development, Diane's books and parent resources and her new eCourse at her website Ages & Stages
