With research showing that mums buy on average 7 different baby cups until they find one they like*, Fisher-Price® introduces an innovative new feeding range designed to grow with a child every step of the way, while offering practical weaning solutions for parents.
Featuring baby cups that fit in pushchair and car cup holders because of special handles that move in and out, a 3 in 1 spout cup that grows with a baby, and bowls and plates that change colour to indicate that food is too hot to eat, the range brings exciting innovation to the market.
And what is mealtime without messy happy fun too? The bright and colourful, BPA free, and not to mention dishwasher friendly Fisher-Price range, not only makes mealtimes fun for babies, but helps make the whole weaning experience as stress-free as possible.
The range is available to buy exclusively at Boots from March 2014 and we were sent some items to test out with Sebastian.
We were sent the wrap around spoons, 1st sippy cup and heat senstive bowls to try.
I was immediately impressed. The bowls change from orange to yellow when the food is too hot. Now there is no more sticking my tongue in Sebastian’s food to check it is the right temperature and he couldn’t wait to get hold of the wrap around spoon.
He is too young to attempt to feed himself at the moment, but is happy to chew the spoons at the moment. When the time comes for him to try and feed himself I can make the spoons wrap loosely around his hand at the length which best suits him.
I am slowly introducing a drink at mealtimes, although he still prefers to breastfeed he will take a few sips of water if offered from his sippy cup.
Here is the full range:
Baby’s 1st Sippy Cup is the perfect product to help baby make the transition from bottle to cup.
