Infant Trainer

Myofunctional training for infants

Children naturally want to chew objects. This is an important impulse that ensures the jaw receives the exercise it requires to develop correctly.

The Infant Trainer™ from Myofunctional Research Co. (MRC) is an active exerciser that encourages your child to chew correctly while using the jaw muscles. Most importantly, the Infant Trainer™ encourages your child to breathe through their nose while simultaneously training them to swallow and position the tongue correctly. Research clearly illustrates that correct facial, jaw and dental growth depends strongly on all of these factors.
