How It Works
1. The tripod design allows the bottle to sit comfortably on the baby’s chest. It keeps the bottle from falling or rolling off the baby’s chest.
2. The baby is prompted to use her arms and body to tip and lift the bottle toward her mouth to drink from the bottle. This is difficult to do without the TipMeNot because of the weight of the bottle. The leaves of the TipMeNot create a fulcrum at the top of the bottle that shifts the weight of the bottle and the milk away from the baby’s mouth. That is, the milk still sits at the bottom of the bottle.The leaves are curved away from the baby which allows her to easily tip the bottle toward her mouth. The fulcrum allows for tipping the bottle without having to lift and bear the full weight of the bottle. This allows the baby to learn to feed herself before she has the strength to fully lift the bottle.
3. As the baby becomes stronger, she begins to lift and tilt the bottle to drink. The TipMeNot allows the baby the ability to easily maneuver the bottle using her arms and hands (as opposed to just holding the bottle with her hands). Allowing your baby to easily maneuver her bottle before she has the dexterity to clinch the bottle effectively with her hands is essential to the early learning process.
4. Lastly, the TipMeNot prevents spillage when the baby drops or pushes the bottle to the side. The tripod system keeps the nipple elevated, preventing the contents of the bottle from leaking. No more wet floors, bed sheets, car seat, etc.
