My kids have been using sippy cups for a long, long, time. However, my middle child, Micah, hasn’t quite mastered how to use a cup and straw. Instinctively, he tips the cup back in order to bring the liquid to his mouth. This doesn’t work out well when we’re out to eat and the lid isn’t spill proof!
Playtex Baby has created a product to help babies learn how straws work, and how to successfully take a sip! The First Lil’ Gripper is a straw trainer cup that an adult can gently squeeze in order to draw liquid up into the straw, giving baby a taste. However, it’s not so easy to squeeze that a child will be able to squeeze juice or milk all over the place ;).
- Simple for a child to drink from, while allowing Mom to easily train
- and track her child’s development
- Ergonomically designed with easy grip handles for little hands
- Equipped with our Twist ‘n Click™ Leak-Proof Guaranteed seal
- Features a slider to keep the straw clean when not in use
- Spill-Proof, Leak-Proof, Break-Proof Guarantee
- Dishwasher safe
- BPA Free and Phthalate Free
- Interchangeable lid
- Fun, vibrant colors for boys and girls (purple, blue, green and pink)
Micah really got the hang of it quickly! Instead of inverting the cup, he soon learned to keep the cup upright. I love the handles on the cup! I’m not a big fan of handle-less cups, and it helped him keep it steady and in the right position. Additionally, I’m a huge fan of their Twist ‘n Click lids–I know when they’re really screwed on fully!
