KELOWNA, BRITSH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan 16, 2013) - ReliaBrand Inc. (RLIA) announced today the introduction of unique accessories it has developed that transform their new Adiri® NxGen® Nurser into both a Sippy Cup and into a specially designed toddler''s Sport bottle. "These innovations help transform the Adiri® NxGen® from a single-use infant Nurser to a series of useful transitional products caregivers can utilize throughout the first years of their child''s development," ReliaBrand CEO Antal Markus stated.
The three major transactional stages most infants typically undergo are transitioning from the breast to a baby bottle or nurser followed by a transition from the baby bottle to a spill resistant Sippy cup and finally from the Sippy to a drinking cup or Sport Bottle. Each transition is based on the infant''s changing needs and development. Manufacturers have typically created specialized products to help caregivers provide purpose designed products to match the transitional needs of their infants and toddlers. However each transitional stage can offer a new challenge for caregivers if their child resists the introduction of the "new" in favor of the "previous" feeding or hydration method. Each stage also typically involves the purchase of an entirely new product.
The Adiri® NxGen® Nurser offers caregivers a range of interchangeable nurser nipples in varying flow rates designed for all the increasing flow rate needs of their developing infants. Today ReliaBrand® introduced a new transitional Sippy cap and a new transitional Sport cap both of which fit the existing Adiri® NxGen® bottle. This offers caregivers the opportunity to meet the transitional needs of their developing infants and toddlers without having to introduce new bottles they may reject in favor of their familiar bottle while saving on new bottle purchases.
"We went far beyond simply developing a Sippy and Sport Cap to fit the Adiri® NxGen® Nurser," Markus declared. "We specifically designed features to help encourage infants and toddlers to make the next transition," explained Markus. "Starting with the premise of the infant already being familiar with their existing nursing bottle, we created transitional caps we believed would best encourage an easy transition for the child''s next development stage." Mr. Markus continued. "For example our Sport Bottle Cap utilizes a patented valve to ensure it is spill resistant but also features a built-in multi-light that causes the contents of the bottle to illuminate in entertaining ways for toddlers or can act as a night-light in the evening," Markus exclaimed.
"So Mom gets the spill resistance she desires while the child is encouraged to abandon the old means for the ''bells and whistles'' found only in using the new cap," Markus clarified. "Our Sippy cap also offers the spill-resistance and other features Mom''s seek, but the encouragements to transition from the Nurser to a Sippy are more subtle and in the form of ergonomic shapes and pastel colors designed to appeal to this early toddler," Markus continued. "We even created a new bottle brush with replaceable cleaning sponges and custom shapes to increase the ease of cleaning everything from the Nurser Nipples to the bottle and accessory caps. Together with the Adiri® NxGen® innovations, yesterday''s introduction of the NxGen® Medi-Nurser™ and today''s transitional Cap and Brush releases, I believe we have met our goal of transforming Adiri® from a single SKU Nurser to an innovative and relevant infant feeding Brand focused on the most common first years needs of infants and caregivers alike," Markus concluded.
