Niko and the Nuk brush

I never knew what a Nuk brush was until I learned it from Niko.

Our occupational therapist introduced it to us when we started building Niko’s tongue muscles. We started with stroking motions of the sides of his mouth and now he chews it independently.

Since Niko was born with a broken arm, his left wrist naturally bent down. He would sometimes extend it, but oftentimes kept it bent.

Watching his progress with chewing and also his ability to hold and transfer the brush is awesome to see! He uses his wrist completely normally now!
