Bottles, Cups and Dummies – a practical approach


Written by the Babcock LDP Early Years Team

SKU: EAY03 Category:


This book and DVD provides a nine step approach to developing a setting policy and good practice in the use of bottles, cups and dummies. It is full of practical advice and guidance that will help early years’ providers and parents to support the best way to use bottles, cups and dummies with their children.

Settings should buy this resource if they would like to develop a consistent way for staff to work and appropriate advice and guidance for parents in supporting children to move on to open cups and give up dummies at the right time.

This is important because research shows there are links between inappropriate use of bottles and dummies and children having ear infections, speech development difficulties and dental decay; quite sobering when considered in conjunction with the impact that poor overall communication development has on children’s life chances and futures.
