DIAPER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

` Patented Nov. 28, 1916.

lApplication led March 28, 1916. Serial No. 87,340.

To' all whom it may concern: Y

Be it known that I, AMANDA D. SwETzEL, a cltizen ofthe United States of America,

Aresiding at Philadelphia, in the county of insuring a neat and comfortable fit without chaing the tender skin. l

Among other features the invention comprehends a garment of the character mentioned, which,` in view of its simplicity of construction, permits the attendant to hold' the infant in an' arm and the hand thereof while the other hand will be free to arrange the diaperin position so that the infant can be placed thereon and the garment adjusted and secured in applied position.

In the use of the ordinary diaper now generally employed, the wrapping of the diaper upon the body 'of the infant caused edges and portions of the rough side of. the diaper to come in direct Contact .with the skin', resulting in great annoyance to the infant and, particularly in warm weather,'causing inflammation of portions of the skin. With my constructlonv the smooth, soft side of the material of the diaper only, comes into direct tontact with the skin thus insuring comfort'to the infant.

Still vfurther the simple formation of the diaper permits of it being made at a low cost and by certain details in theconstruction thereof the diaper also acts as a binding or bandage for the' abdomen of the infant or as a means for holding the usual infant bandage for the abdomen, in position.

In the further disclosure of the invention reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, constituting a part of this speciflcation,in which similar characters of reference denote corresponding parts in all the views, and in which,

Figure 1 is a plan view of the garment,

Fig. 2 is a front elevation showing the garment' applied, Fig. 3 is a rear elevation of the garment as it will appear when applied, and Fig. l is a` front elevation showing the garment partially open.

Referring more particularly to the'views,

. the garment in its entiretyl is indicated by the numeral 10 and consists of a portion ll forming a back and a lower portion 12 to be folded forwardly and upwardly to provide a front. Attached to a free end 13 of the front 12 is a. connecting element 14 in4 the nature of a tape, which may or may not be ieXible, as desired, the tape having a buttonhole 15 for connection with a button 16 sewed to the face vof the front l2 near an end .17 thereof. Referring to Fig. 4, it will be seen, that when the front 12 has been arranged in position, the tape or strap 14 passing rearwardly between the front andv back` extends across to connect with the button 16. The back 11 has secured to its rearV face avt'ape element 18 which is preferably i a flexible or elastic strap fand projecting from side edges 19y of the back at its upper ends are belt members 2O which as shown in Figs. 2 and 44 are adapted to be brought forwardly to traverse thevfront 12, one of the beltmembers having buttonholes` 21 and the other having buttons 22 for receptionV in the buttonholes 2l. plurality of sets of buttons 22. are preferably provided to take up for 'any slack and Athis construction i I with the aid of the elastic'stra 18 permits of tightly holding and securing the belt members 20 across the front 12 and the abdomen of the infant, these belt members when connected as shown in Fig. 2, forming the belt 23. l

Now it will be clearly seen that upon folding the lower portion of the `piece of material or body 10 thereof to form the front .12, that there will be openings or slits between the side edges of the back and the side edgesof the front at the point rwhere the front and back merge into each other and by referring to Fig. 2 it will be apparent that the lower limbs of the infant lndicated by the numerals 24, will pass through these slits which are substantially formed into openings 25 by having straps 26 attached to the side edges of the back,

engage with buttons 27 onthe front. The straps 26 may be ofafiexiblematerial, if desired, in the nature of elastic straps, and referring to be lapparent `that the provision of the straps and the buttons to which they are connected will cause' the garment at these points, to snugly encircle the limbs of the infant, a plurality of sets of the buttons 27, being preferably provided for the tight or loose adjustment of the straps 26.

With a garment designed and formed in the manner mentioned, it will be clear that the application of the garment results in the smooth sides .or face of the material coming into contact with the skin, of the rough side of the material coming into vdirect Contact whatsoever with the infant. Although the beltV 23 may be employed to perform the function of an abdominal bandage it will be clear that the belt facilitates the proper application of the garment to the infant and furthermore, when a separate abdominal bandage is used, the belt acting as a binder,

tional bandage against displacement.

The above mentioned features combined with the additional advantages namely the provision of a garment of this character, which can be applied without the use of' pins or other similar fastenings and which need not be first arranged in a folded position but can be placed flat and the infant deposited thereon, together with the simplicity of construction and the ease of manipulation, provides a garment which will lend itself readily to the purpose for which it is desired and be effective in use.

AlthoughI have described and shown 'a particular form of the garment it will beunderstood that I vdo not limit myself to the particular constructionV set forth in thel drawings and in the specification and that various slight changes may be made without departing from the Vspirit of the invention,

Fig. 4 and also to Fig. 2, it will no part,

l extend across the back holds the addithe scopev of which is dened in the appended claims.

Having described my invention I claim:

l. A diaper comprising a garment body formed to provide a back and afront, a connecting element on a corner ofthe front and adapted to extend' across the back to connect with another corner of the front, and a band onthe back and foldable onto the front, saidband covering a portion of the connecting element.Y

2. A diaper comprising having. an upper portion'v and a lower portion upwardly to form a front, a tape projecting from one edge of the frbnt and adapted to to connect with an-l other edge of the front and straps adapted to connect adjacent edges of the back and front to form openings.

3. A. diaper comprising a garment body comprising a front and a back, a connecting element on an edge of the front and extending across the front of the back to connect with another edge of the front, band members on the back and foldable to connect at the front of the garment body, said members being adapted to overlie the front and cover a portion of the connecting element and a tension tape on the back and serving to take up any slack in the band members.

4. A dia er comprising a piece of ymatea garment Abody forming a back foldable forwardly and esy lrial of'uni orm-width throughout itslength,

Inv testimony whereof I affix my signature.

AMANDA D. SWETZEL.
