ISA BELLE CCWVLES, OF SYRACUSE, NEW YORK.

NURSING-BOTTLE-SUPPORTING FRAIME.

Application filed. April 9, 1921. Serial No. 460,018.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, IsA BELLE Cownns, of Syracuse, in the county of Onondaga in the State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Nursing-Bottle- Supporting Frames, of which the following. taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invent-ion relates to a combined bottle-holder and nipple clamp for nursing bottles involving the use of a skeleton frame into which the bottle may be inserted and removed through the upper end thereof with means adjustable lengthwise of the frame for clamping and releasing the nipple upon and from the mouth of the bottle.

Considerable difficulty is experienced by nursing children in the proper handling of the glass or analogous bottle commonly known as a nursing bottle by reason of their inability to obtain a firm hold upon the periphery thereof resulting in the falling of the bottle beyond their reach and in many instances the breaking of the bottle and spilling of the contents and the maln object of my present invention is to provide a light and comparatively inexpensive bottle-holder which may be more conveniently and firmly held in the hands of the nursing child without in any way interfering with the free use of the nipple and thereby to relieve the nurse from the necessity of frequently restoring the bottle to the child and also reducing to a minimum the liability of breakage of the bottle.

Another object .is to provide a holder of this character into and from which the empty or filled bottle may be easily and quickly inserted and removed for cleansing purposes or for refilling, and at the same time permitting the holder to be thoroughly cleansed and sterilized in all parts thereof when the bottles are removed therefrom.

A further object is to utilize portions of the same holder for clamping the nipple upon the mouth of the bottle.

Other objects and uses relating to specific parts of the device will be brought out in the following description:

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a side elevation of a bottle-holder embodying the various features of my invention with a nursing bottle and nipple in operative position therein.

B of elastic rubber or other suitable material having its smaller end provided with the usual outlet -b, said bottle-holder and nipple clamp comprising a cup-shaped base 1 for receiving and supporting the bot tom of the bottle, a band -2- for encircling the neck of the bottle, and a pair of tiebars or straps 3 connecting the base 1- and band 2 at diametrically opposite sides thereof, thereby producing a skeleteon frame or structure forming the main body of the holder.

Suitable outwardly bow-handles lare secured at their ends to the opposite tiepieces or straps 3 so that their intermediate portions may stand out some distance from said straps for convenient engagement by the nursing child in holding and manipulating the bottle and its nipple to the desired position, the tie-pieces 3- and handles -4l-- being preferably fiat and relatively narrow transverselyfor convenience of support in the childs hand.

The cup-shaped base 1 is relatively shallow vertically as compared with the height of the bottle, and its interior is made to conform closely to the eripheral contour of said bottle with suf cient clearance to enable the bottle to be easily removed and reinserted from and into the base by upward or vertical displacement or movement.

The band 2 is also of relatively narrow width vertically as compared with the vertical height of the bottle and is of substantially the same interior diameter as that of the base -1- to permit the bottle to be passed therethrough from the top downwardly and reversely without excessive friction therewith.

The tie-bars or straps -3- may be secured at their ends by rivets or spot welding to the outer faces of the upper portion of the base -1 and lower portion of the band 2--- to form rigid connections with those mull parts and thereby to hold the band -2 and base -1 in fixed relation and also in coaxial alinement.

The ends of the handles -4 may also be secured by rivets or spot welding to the intermediate portions of their respective bars or straps 3, and are therefore, rigidly connected therewith to enable the entire holder and bottle therein to be supported entirely by the handles.

A cap-ring 5 which may also be termed a clamping-ring is adjustable lengthwise of and upon the band 2- and for this purpose, the upper end of the band is threaded externally and engaged by internal threads on the lower end of the cap or clamping ring 5, the upper end of said cap-ring being contracted or offset inwardly to form an annular flange -6, the inner diameterof which is somewhat less than that of the band 2 to overlie the head -a of the mouth of the bottle and also to engage the outer face of the lower and larger end of the nipple B for clamping the same against the upper face of the bead or mouth of the bottle when the cap is properly adjusted, at which time the flange 6 also serves to hold the bottle upon the bottom of the base -1 against vertical movement, it being understood that the smaller portion of the nipple B projects upwardly through and above the cap-ring 5 a sufficient distance for engagement with the mouth of the child without liability of contact with any parts of the holder.

It is obvious from the foregoing description that the bottle -A- with the nipple B- thereon may be inserted into or removed from the holder through the upper end thereof by simply removing the cap 5 and that when the bottle with the nipple thereon is placed in the holder, they may be firmly held therein by simply screwing the cap-ring 5- upon the upper end of the band -2- until the flange -6 impinges the base of the nipple B-- against the upper face of the bead a of the bottle.

The operation of my invention will now be readily understood upon reference to'the foregoing description and the accompanying drawing, and while the construction shown is preferable, it is evident that various changes may be made in the detail construction without departing from the spirit of this invention.

iVhat I claim is:

1. A combined bottle-holder and nipple clamp for nursing bottles comprising a cupshaped base, a band above and in spaced re lation to said base, circumferentially'spaced tie-pieces-connecting saidbase and band to hold them in fixed relation one above the other, said band being of sufficient size to permit the bottle to pass endwise therethrough, and a cap-ring adjustable lengthwise of and upon said band and having its upper end contracted for engaging and clamping a nipple to the mouth of the bottle.

2. A combined bottle holder and nipple clamp for nursing bottles comprising a cup shaped base for receiving the bottom of the bottle, a band for encircling the neck of the bottle and of sufficient internal diameter to permit the bottle to pass endwise therethrough, relatively narrow tie-pieces connecting said base and band, and provided with handles, and a cap ring adjustable lengthwise of and upon the band and having its upper end of less interior diameter than that of its lower end for clamping the nipple to the mouth of the bottle.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 2nd day of April, 1921.

ISA BELLE COWLES.
