A while ago I was asked to review Cognikids newly developed baby bottle gripper called GRIP. Cognikids is a reestablished company, previously known as Creepy Crawlers. As well as the gripper you can also get your hands on a sensory teething bib or a grip crawl suit. You can visit their website if you would like to find out more. For now we concentrate on the gripper.
The baby bottle gripper is very flexible and comes in 6 different funky bright colours such as Apple or Sky. It allows your baby to hold the bottle herself and that way gives them the ability to feed themselves at a young age. Plain bottles with milk or water on its own can be very hard to handle and challenging for your little one, so this is where GRIP comes in.
Furthermore it encourages fine finger movements, hand eye co-ordination, hand mouth co-ordination and cognitiv development. It’s lightweight and due to its design baby’s parents are able to see exactly how much milk/water is left inside. Very important point also is, it’s BPA free, dishwasher and steriliser safe.
The gripper works with all major bottle brands such as NUK, Mam, Avent, Tommee Tippee and Dr. Brown.
What did I think of the baby bottle gripper?
• At first it was hard to fit the bottle into the GRIP, with Avent bottle I find it easier to fit from the bottom of the gripper. It depends on the bottle really.
• Easy to hold for baby.
• Flexible to take a long when going out and about.
• I prefer washing it in the dishwasher.
• We couldn’t review it properly because unfortunately Chloe was suffering from a stomach bug for 3 weeks which meant it was the perfect timing to move her off the bottles.
The retail price of this product is €14.99.
NOTE: Watch GRIP in action on Irish Channel RTE One on Sunday 9.30pm on the show Dragon’s Den.
