Silicone Grip Cups
The ideal cup for kids.
Did you know that babies have the necessary oral motor skills to enable them to drink from an open cup? Health experts of all kinds (dietitians, speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists) now recommend introducing little munchkins water via an open cup from six months onwards. The professionals say that drinking from an open cup prevents tooth decay and improves speech development. Just remember that they will still need your help and lots of practice to master this skill.
How to introduce baby grip cups
Drinking from an open cup is a significant developmental stage in a young child’s life, and your guide can make this transition from bottle or breast to an open cup less stressful for the little cherubs. Start out by introducing a small amount of water ideally in a silicone grip cup for kids, so there is less to spill as the soft lip is gentle on their gums and teeth.
Softly place your hands over theirs while slowly guiding the grip cup to their mouths. Tilt the design until the liquid touches their lips. Hold it in that position for a few seconds to enable a baby to taste and consume the contents. Then remove it. Over the day, repeatedly introduce little water sips to the little angels. You can also let them watch you take a sip or two from the cup. Make sure you express enjoyment while doing so, and soon they will start to mimic you.
The baby must be introduced to the right choice for their needs – one that they can hold in their little hands. We have the ideal cups for baby’s hands to grasp. These silicone grip cups are small enough for little ones to wrap their hands around and independently lift it to their mouths with ease. The soft round lip will be gentle on their gums and teeth if they bang it against their mouth. The tactile soft finish will help the little hands to hold the product and avoid spillage. Be conscious that spillage can unsettle an already tired or stressed baby, so if you make light of the mishap, it will be less stressful for the little darling.
Our selection features lots of eye-catching colours that your little toddler will love. Made of non-toxic, durable, food-grade silicone, the cup is easy to clean and is microwave, dishwasher, and freezer-safe.
