Why Use A Chewy Holder and How?
Why Use a Chewy Holder?
Every child is different. Some tolerate wearing necklaces, others insist on wearing chewies on their wrist, while others need to have the lanyard attached to their shoulder or waist.
So, why use a tether and strap, neck lanyard and strap holder?
Keeps Chewies Clean and sanitary
Chewy holders keep your child’s chewy off the floor. This is really important since your child puts the chewy in their mouth and a dirty chewy can reintroduce an illness to your child. Use of chewy holders also help to keep the child from throwing their chewies around the room or at school.
Keeps Chewies Available
Chewy holders keep your child’s favorite chewy with them all day long. You never know when they will need the chewy and you never know when a staff will need to have the chewy in a situation where there is a biting risk. Chewy holders provide a sense of security for the child and safety for staff that are handling a child.
Keeps Chewies from getting lost
Countless chewies have ended up under sofas, out car windows, taken by other children, etc. Chewy holders insure that the chewy stays with the child.
How do I know which tether or lanyard is right for my child?
You generally need to try the different chewy holders and neck lanyard options and find out which one is preferred by your child. For instance, one child may love their chewy on their shoulder while another finds it uncomfortable or too distracting. There are also children that have sensory issues with items placed around their neck. A shoulder tether may be a perfect solution for this child. The full range of various chubuddy chewy holders are designed to be attached to the shirt collar, shoulder, wrist and waist of the chewer.
In any event, having a favorite chewy close at hand and clean can be very important. For certain kids, this can be almost a must-have when professionals are working with them for safety reasons.
We have found that the shoulder or collar mounted tether is perhaps the least intrusive of the lanyard options but some kids may prefer a a waist attached or a necklace lanyard. If in doubt, we suggest trying the shoulder mounted tether and moving to the neck lanyard if that is what your child prefers. Another option for older children (above age 10) is the springz chewy holder which can be attached at the shoulder or waist. CAUTION: since the springz cord extends from a 4″ relaxed length to 18″, there is a risk of strangulation in younger children. All children should be monitored closely for safety when using chewing products.
Cleaning of chewies
It is very important to keep the chewies and holders that your child uses clean and sanitary. Chewies are very similar to toothbrushes as they are used daily and put in the mouth. chubuddy has designed a tubes brush kit to clean chubuddy strong tubes and other chewies to protect your child’s health.
How to Use a Chewy Holder
chubuddy straps have been designed to hold the most popular chewy shapes including those from Chewy Tubes tm, ARK Therapeutic tm and others. For T- shaped products, simply place the down tube through the hole and then thread the C ring through the strap as shown. For chew product with closed loops like Ps and Qs (trade names of Chewy Tubes tm), simply fold over the flexible strap through the loop and then thread the C ring through the strap as shown.
Your child can select from chewy holders that clip onto the shoulder, waist, or that hang like a necklace. Your choice will depend upon your child’s preferences and how he/she tolerates the tethering option. You may have to experiment with a couple different options before you find out which method fits your child. chubuddy offers neck lanyards with breakaway clasps, chewy holders that clip to the collar or shoulder and also the waist.
