    ARK’s Baby Tetra-Bite® is designed to calm and soothe infants who are in the early stages of development.  At approximately 5-6 months of age, babies start mouthing and chewing in order to strengthen their mouth muscles and exercise their lips, tongue, and jaw. This oral exploration prepares them to eat solid foods and to make speech sounds later on.  The Baby Tetra-Bite™ provides a safe outlet for babies to develop these skills. 

    Available in 2 strengths – Soft (Teal) and Firm (Turquoise).

  • Like all ARK chews, the Sidekick is available in 3 color-coded toughness levels:

    • Standard (Red) – This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything).
    • XT / Medium Firm (Lime Green) – This is the middle level, which we call XT (“Xtra Tough”). It’s firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers.
    • XXT / Very Firm (Royal Blue) – This is the toughest level, which we call XXT (“Xtra Xtra Tough”). It still has some “chewability” to it, but it’s fairly rigid / pretty firm.  No chew tool is indestructible, but this is usually the longest lasting level for avid chewers.
