DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Gentle Transition Cup

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Transition Cup

INSPIRATION:
Moving to a sippy cup is an exciting first step toward drinking independence, but it can be confusing for bottle-fed babies. Make the change easier with the spill proof cup is a necessary step for babies and parents. The soft, patented spout design is extremely flexible and gentle on babies' sensitive gums, and the removable handles make it easy for them to take the lead. When it's time to leave the bottle behind, this spill-proof trainer will be the perfect first sippy cup to introduce.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Starter cup that helps move away from bottles, which has a soft silicone spout that is gentle on baby's gums. The Ultra-flexible spout stretches and pumps as a baby suckles on it, which provides a continuous latch to help reduce the symptoms of colic. Soft handles are easy to grab and helps to reduce shock when the bottle is accidentally dropped.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Specially designed silicone spout simulate mom's breastfeeding with its stretchable and easy to pump nipple moves with baby to provide a continuous latch to help reduce the symptoms of colic.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
September 2017 to September 2018

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
BPA free Polypropylene for the bottle and collar. Liquid injection molded medical grade silicone for the spout Co-molded PP and TPE for the handles

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width73mm x Depth 110mm x Height 138mm

TAGS:
Transition Cup, Baby Cup, Baby Product, Feeding Product, Feeding, Infant, Toddler, Baby

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Researched materials such as liquid injection silicone with the right durometer to simulate breastfeeding. Researched different flow rates of liquid coming out of the spout to make sure the amount of liquid consumption is just the right amount for 4 months old babies. Researched on safety issue of how babies grab handles and drop the bottle by an accident, and PP and TPE over molded handles to absorb shock from a drop.

CHALLENGE:
At first, silicone spout was kept collapsing and wouldn't come back to its original form when a baby suckled on the spout too hard and there is less air inside the bottle. We tried to open up the spout with the air intake valve, but it wasn't helping much. Later, we overcame the challenge through reshaping the spout with variable thicknesses, so the elastic property of silicone changed throughout spout's accordion-like folds.
