Playtex Baby First Lil’ Gripper w/Straw is the Perfect Trainer

The Playtex The First Lil’ Gripper Straw Cup is the newest trainer cup in the Playtex line. It is the perfect trainer to help your baby learn how to drink from a straw and transition from a bottle to a cup. The cup let’s you push in the sides of the cup to help the liquid move up to the straw while your baby learns how to use the straw to. You child will learn quickly because you are helping them.

With the new Twist ‘n Click feature the Playtex Lil’ Gripper also has a leak-proof-seal. Simply twist the lid on the cup until you hear and feel the lid click closed and then you will know the cup is 100% leak-proof. The lid is also interchangeable with all Playtex cups and all parts are dishwasher safe.

Designed for babies ages 4 months to 12 months, the cup also features unique handles with grippers to help your child keep hold of it without dropping it.

When you help your child by pushing the liquid up to the straw they learn to suck the liquid more easily. The spill-proof, leak-proof, and break-proof features we thought were especially nice and of course, having a product dishwasher safe is a definitely plus in our busy lives. The plastic is It is BPA and Phthalate Free too.
