Introducing this awesome range of products for tamariki by NZ designer Zazi.

Did you know that children can drink from an open cup from the moment you start solids?

That's right - 4, 5 and 6 month olds can be taught to drink from an open cup, and supporting them to do so has benefits for development.

1. Open cup drinking supports the development of a mature swallow.

2. It helps strengthen the muscles of the mouth that support speech

3. It promotes sipping rather than sucking which is good for jaw development

4. It prevents liquids from pooling around the upper front teeth

5. It develops their fine and gross motor skills

Zazi has developed Clever Cups to cleverly teach your little one how to drink successfully from an open cup. The straight, non-slip sides are easy to grip, the inside is curved and angled so that fluids flow consistently, the base is weighted to prevent it toppling and the soft silicone is safe for developing teeth.
YES you need to expect that the learning process will be messy. But tamariki are very capable when we give them learning opportunities. Try only placing a little bit in the cup if you're worried about mess initially. You can also try adding smoothies or watered down puree as these will flow slower so your little one isn't caught off guard.

"I'm so happy you're here! I'm Zazi, Mam of two and Speech and Language Therapist. With a background in coaching caregivers and educators, I decided to share how I play with my own kids to support their development. We launched the Zazi store when I struggled to find products that I knew from my training were beneficial for development. All Zazi products are designed and curated by me with child development in mind. My two children, August and Etta, are amazing product testers!"
