This creation is a device that uses pump to increase the pressure in the bottle so that water flows into the user’s mouth. It includes a 3D printed transparent resin bottle body, a 3D printed PLA plastic bottle screw rings, a criss-cross buffer and a duckbill, a replaceable silicone pacifier and straw, a gravity ball made of polypropylene and stainless steel, and a rubber material pressurized pump. It uses the pump to pressurize the water in the bottle to flow out, and the bottle screw rings with the criss-cross buffer to reduce pressure to avoid discomfort caused by the water column directly into the mouth. There is a gravity ball under the straw for users to use in various postures. It is equipped with two different water outlets (pacifier or duckbill) for users to choose. The curve-designed bottle body is easy to grip, which is more convenient to use the pump.
