Frequently Asked Questions
Which Original Squeeze® is right for my child?
Our spill-proof Original Squeeze® is intended for beginning eaters (around 6 -9 months) and growing toddlers. The purge valve design requires similar oral mechanisms your child currently or previously used when breast and/or bottle-feeding.
The free-flowing Original Squeeze with Eeeze is intended for children ages 2+. Any age can use the Original Squeeze with Eeeze™ due to its free-flowing nipple spout, but it is not recommended for the youngest eaters, who are not quite coordinated enough to independently feed themselves without spills or accidents. The Original Squeeze with Eeeze™ is the perfect addition to school lunches — pack a chilled Squeeze for a nutritious snack or smoothie midday while keeping their lunch box cool!
What age is appropriate to start using The Original Squeeze®?
The beginning age for any Original Squeezer is subjective, but we have found that the best time to introduce a little one to our spill-proof Original Squeeze® is at the time you introduce him or her to pureed foods. Because the purge valve is modeled after a baby’s instinct to root, The Original Squeeze® provides a smooth transition from bottle/breast to self-feeding on The Original Squeeze® spout.
How should I wash my Original Squeeze®?
The Original Squeeze® is top-rack dishwasher safe. Hand-washing with a basic bottle brush, soap, and hot water is recommended to extend the life of your Original Squeeze®. Never place your Original Squeeze spout over the prong of your dishwasher or drying rack, and do not force a cleaning utensil through the spout, as these actions can ruin the integrity of the nipple spout.
We just received our Original Squeeze® but neither me or my little one can get any food out–what are we doing wrong?
First off–you are probably doing everything right! The Original Squeeze® is a unique eating experience that can be a learning process for many little ones. Some little ones will pick up The Original Squeeze® on day 1 and enjoy food right away…Others take their time to discover the function of our spill-proof nipple spout. Your little one will soon discover that by gumming/pinching (or rooting) the tip of the nipple spout with their mouth, while simultaneously squeezing The Original Squeeze® will give them the results they want–Food!
Note to parents: DO NOT be deterred if you cannot get any food out yourself. It is unlikely that parents will successfully use a Original Squeeze® efficiently; The Original Squeeze® was created for the smallest mouths and babies and toddlers especially, have a much stronger sucking ability than we do!

What is The Original Squeeze® made of?
All Original Squeeze® materials are made of certified food- and medical-grade safe materials that are BPA-, Phathlate-, PVC-, latex- and lead-free.
- The body of The Original Squeeze® is 100% silicone.
- The clear cap is DN011 Co polyester
- The two Rings are Polypropylene (PP)
- The Nipple is a clear TPE (thermo-plastic elastomer)
Are the two different styles of spouts interchangeable on any Original Squeeze®?
Yes! If you’re little one is using the spill-proof Original Squeeze® but is ready for the next phase in squeezing-the free-flowing Original Squeeze with Eeeze™–you will simply need to buy the Replacement Spouts in the free-flowing Eeeze style (and vice versa).
Can I freeze The Original Squeeze®?
Yes! You can fill your Original Squeeze® with food and freeze it with the cap on. Please note that we do not recommend storing your Original Squeeze® in the freezer for an extended period of time. A frozen Original Squeeze® is the perfect lunch box addition to keep your child’s lunch cool and will be perfectly defrosted for snack or lunch time if taken out before school.
Help! There is food leaking out of the sides of The Original Squeeze®! What is going on?
No problem! More than likely, you simply need to realign the male and female attachments where the Body meets the Ring.
The Body of the Original Squeeze® has a very small notch toward the top of it, at the opening. The Ring (that attaches to the body) has a very small groove that fits perfectly with the notch on the Body. Make sure these two parts are fastened securely before screwing on the nipple spout and cap. Without this secure match, the Original Squeeze® will not work properly.
