INFANTS WRAP.

Application filed May 22, 1922.

This invention relates to improvements in infants wraps.

it is the object of this invention to pro vide a wrap of simple design into which small infants can readily be introduced. So far as I am aware, there is no wrap available upon the market which is suitable for very small children. It is extremely difficult to insert the arms of a young infant into a coat sleeve, and a sleeve is actually uncomfortable to the infant wearer. A small child has considerably greater freedom of movement when its arms are entirely enclosed within a garment than it has when the garment is supplied with sleeves. The double thickness of material forming the body of the garment and the sleeve, which interposed between the arm and body of the infant, restricts the infants movements and causes unnecessary chafing.

It is a further object of this invention to provide an infants garment which ill afford real protection for a very young child and will allow the child considerable freedom of movement within the garment while insuring against any possible exposure of the child to cold.

It is a further object of this invention to provide an infants wrap in which a child will be afforded freedom of movement and will nevertheless be secured against the possibility of a fall through any open portion of the wrap.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 represents the wrap as it appears when in use.

Figs. 2, 3, 4 and 5 are drawings upon a reduced scale illustrating the several steps involved in folding the wrap. Fig. 2 represents the wrap as it appears when it is arranged for the introduction of a child therein, the pocket flap being open. Fig. 3 shows the pocket flap closed. Fig. 4: shows the wrap with its lower corner brought into place above the pocket. and Fig. 5 shows one of the side flaps folded over.

Fig. 6 is a section taken on line 66 of Fig. 1.

Like parts are identified by the same reference characters throughout the several views.

The device is extremely simple and is en tirely composed of two pieces of material. The body of the wrap comprises a piece of warm fabric 10, which is preferably square.

Serial No. 562,584.

To the body portion 10, the pocket flap 11 is secured in the position best shown in Fig. 3. Flap 11 is preferably stitched to the body portion 10 along the line indicated by the numerals 12, 13, 14 and 15. Glove fasteners 16 may be used to secure the free end offlap 11 to the body 10 of the wrap when the child is to be enclosed therein. To permit the introduction of the child, the free end 17 of flap 11 may be thrown back to the position in which it appears in Fig. 2. When the glove fasteners 16 are fastened, however, the flap 17, taken with the adjacent portion of the body 10 of the wrap, constitutes a pocket within which the child will be confined. If desired, the material of the flap 11 may be plaited, as indicated at 18 in Fig. 8, to permit a child confined therein adequate freedom of movement.

The corner 19 of body portion 10 is provided with a fastening element 20 which is adapted to register with the complementary member 20 when corner 19 is folded upwardly in the manner indicated in Fig. 4-. The corner 21 of the wrap is provided with a fastening element 22 which is adapted to engage a corresponding element 22 disposed upon the outer side of corner 19 and is brought into operative position when corner 19 is folded as indicated in Fig. 4:. Fig. 6 shows the appearance of the wrap after corner 19 has been folded up and corner 21 has been folded over and secured by the elements 22 and 22.

When corner 21 is brought into the position in which it appears in Fig. 5, the fastening element 22 is brought into operative position and is adapted to receive the complementary element 23 carried by a third corner 24 ofthe body member 10 of the wrap. When the corner 24 has been folded over, the corners 19 and 21, the wrap will appear as it is illustrated in Fig. 1. The remaining corner 25 is not secured, but is left open in ordinary weather to give the infant within the wrap an ample supply of fresh air. When it is desired to protect the infant from the elements, the flap 25 may be folded downwardly over the infants head, but will preferably be unsecured.

Obviously, the wrap may be finished as desired and may be hemmed or bound upon its margins in the manner indicated in Fig. 1. The finish, however, does not affect the construction above described. As for material, I have found that outing flannel is well adapted for use in the construction of wraps embodying this invention The wrap is used follows:

The wrap is first opened up as shown in 2. The bony portion 10 is laid flat upon some sustaining surface and the free end 17 of the pocket fla p 11 is thrown back. With the wrap in this condition, the child is laid upon the body portion 10 between the rows of fastening elements 16 by which the pocket flap 11 is secured. The free end 17 of the flap is thereupon turned upward to the position in which it appears in Fig. 8 and the 7" sterling elements 16 are utilised to secure the flap in position, thereby confining the child within a pocket. The fact that the lower end of the flap ll is stitched to the body member 10 of the wrap insures that the kicking; of the childs feet will not unfasten the claspiug elements 16.

By way of further security and added warn'itl'1,the corners 19, 21 and 9A- of the body portion 10 of the wrap are folded successively in the order nained across one arr-- other and are secured in place by suitable snap fasteners. The fastening elements 20 and 20, when brought into registry and secured, are adapted to hold the flap or corner 19 in. the position in which it appears in Fig. 4. Thereafter corner 21 is secured by elen'ients 22 and 22 and the opposite corner 23 i is folded over and secured by fastening elen'ients .43 and 23. The infant is thus enfolded in the wrap and is securely held therein and protected against exposure The disposition of the portions 26 and 2'? of corners 21 and 24:, respectively, is such that the childs shoulders are protected while its head is left exposed.

In addition to the ease with which the child may be enveloped in the wrap above disclose-d the construction illustrated has the advantage that the child is comparatively free and unhai'npercd by its clothing); and can more about at will within the pocket formed between the body portion 10 and the flap 11. h'loreover the child is supported by the stitching along line l2, 13, 14, 15 in such a way that it cannot slip downwardly relative to the body portion 10 of the wrap while being carried.

I claim:

1. i-i-n infants wrap comprising a sol-stantially square body member having four integral. corners, said body member being formed of protecting fabric and adapted to messes he opened to a fiat position wherein it will lie substantially in a single plane throughout its extent, fl-istening; means adapted to detachably secure three corners and their adjacent sides of the fabric in mutual overlapping relation whereby to comprise an envelope, mid fastening means being positioned adjacent a plurality of said three corners, the fourth integral corner portion of said member and its adjacent sides being unsecured to said three first mentioned corners and sides and providing a loose protecting cover for the her d of an infant having its feet and body extending into the envelope formed by said three first mentioned coruers.
