Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates generally to a diaper changing article.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Diaper changing pads as well as diaper changing stations are widely used to change a child's diaper on the go. However, conventional diaper changing pads are rectangular in shape and are cumbersome for the parent. The conventional changing pads are disadvantageous, because the rectangular shape of the pad requires the child to be aligned on the pad properly to ensure complete coverage from the supporting surface. This maybe quite difficult if the child does not lay still or likes to roll over while being changed.
  • What is needed is a diaper-changing article which is convenient for the parent to change the child's diaper.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE FIGURES
  • FIG. 1 illustrates a perspective view of one embodiment of the baby changing article in accordance with the present invention.
  • FIG. 2 illustrates a top view of one embodiment of the baby changing article in accordance with the present invention.
  • FIGS. 3-10 illustrate one folding procedure of one embodiment of the baby changing article in accordance with the present invention.
  • FIGS. 11-14 illustrate different folding procedures of embodiments of the baby changing article in accordance with the present invention.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PRESENT INVENTION
  • One aspect of the invention is directed to a diaper changing article which comprises a flat body that has a circular outer edge and a plurality of fold lines therein, wherein the body is adapted to be folded about the fold lines to selectively open and close the changing article. The article, when folded, is substantially flat so that the folded article is able to be easily stored in a small enclosed space (e.g. purse, diaper bag).
  • In another aspect of the invention, a diaper changing article which comprises a flat body which has a circular outer edge and a plurality of fold lines therein, wherein the body is adapted to be folded about the fold lines to selectively open and close the changing article between an open and closed position. The changing article comprises a plurality of handles coupled to the outer edge, wherein a first handle is adapted to carry the body in the closed position. Also, a second handle is adapted to maintain the body in the closed position.
  • In another aspect of the present invention, a diaper changing article which comprises a flat circular body which has a plurality of fold lines therein, wherein the body is adapted to be folded about the fold lines to open and close the changing article. The diaper changing article also includes a storage area which is radially arranged about a center of the circular body, wherein at least one pocket in the storage area has an opening proximal to the center of the circular body.
  • In yet another aspect of the present invention, a diaper changing article which comprises a flat body that has a circular outer edge and a plurality of fold lines therein, wherein the body is adapted to be folded about the fold lines to selectively open and close the changing article between an open and closed position. The article also comprises a plurality of handles which are coupled to the outer edge, wherein at least one handle, adapted to carry the body, is exposed in the closed position.
  • In at least one of the above embodiments, the article has at least one pocket which has an opening that is proximal to the outer edge of the circular body. The diaper changing article has a polygonal shape, such as a square, when folded in the closed position. The handle, which is attached to the outer edge of the flat body, is preferably a loop that is adapted to traverse from first side to an opposite second side of the polygonal shape to maintain the folded body in the closed position.
  • FIG. 1 illustrates a perspective view of one embodiment of the baby changing article in accordance with the present invention. The baby changing article 100 is preferably utilized to change the child's (e.g. infant) diaper. As shown in FIG. 1, the baby changing article 100 has a circular or substantially circular body 101. For instance, the changing article 100 can have several (e.g. twenty) discreet sides on its outer edge, but still have an overall substantially circular body 101. Existing changing pads are rectangular in shape which requires the parent or user to perfectly align the child onto the rectangular changing pad to change the child's diaper. Once the child is placed on the rectangular changing pad, the child may not lie still and may begin to roll, flip or move onto the area surrounding the article 100. It is, of course, an annoyance for the parent to try to align and place the child on the rectangular changing pad. It is a further annoyance for the parent to keep the child from moving onto the area (e.g. bathroom floor, grass) surrounding the rectangular changing pad. The circular changing article 100 of the present invention allows the parent to change the child's diaper without these types of worries and annoyances. In particular, the parent can lay down the child onto the article 100 without needing to orient the child in any specific direction due to the circular shape of the article 100. In addition, the circular shape of the changing article 100 provides ample room such that the child does not come into contact with the surrounding area.
  • In one embodiment, the changing article 100 is padded to provide a cushion for the child while laying on the changing article 100, although it is not necessary. The changing article preferably has four handles 112 attached to the outer edge of the body 101. Alternatively, the article 100 has any number of handles 112. In another embodiment, the changing article 100 does not include handles 112. The handles 112 are preferably located 90 degrees from each other with respect to the center of the body 101. In another embodiment, the handles 112 are located at any other angle from each other with respect to the center of the body 101. The handles 112 are preferably attached to the body 101 at the locations where the fold lines 104, 106 meet the outer edge of the body 101. The handles 112 are positioned such that at least one handle 112 is exposed when the article 100 is folded irrespective of the order in which the article 100 is folded. In addition the handles 112 are advantageously located, such that the article 100 can be opened or closed in any order with only one hand. The exposed handle 112 allows the user to carry the article 100. The handles 112 are also formed to be a loop that is long enough to secure the folded body 101 in a closed position, as will be discussed below.
  • The changing article 100 preferably includes several fold lines 104, 106 in the body 101 which allow the changing article 100 to be easily folded for storage. In particular, the article 100 is foldable about the fold lines 104, 106 in any order such that the parent is able to fold the article with one hand. The ability of the changing article 100 to be easily folded is advantageous to the parent, especially if the parent is holding the child with his or her other hand. In addition, the article 100, when folded, is substantially flat so that the folded article 100 is able to be easily placed in a small enclosed space (e.g. purse, diaper bag). Referring to FIG. 3, the changing article 100 preferably has two spaced-apart fold lines 104 as well as another two spaced-apart fold lines 106 oriented perpendicularly to the fold lines 104. The fold lines 104 and 106 are spaced apart an equal distance to intersect in the center of the changing article, thereby creating a neat, compact, polygonal shaped center area 108 (e.g. a square). The polygonal shaped center area 108 forms the polygonal folded article 100 when the article 100 is folded in the closed position. It should be noted that any other shape is contemplated for the center area 108 and is not limited to square. The compact, folded article 100, when folded, allows the article 100 is able to be easily placed in the small enclosed space. In one embodiment, the fold lines 104, 106 are formed in the changing article body 101 by sew lines stitched into the body 101. In another embodiment, the fold lines 104, 106 are formed in the body 101 by any other method or means. In yet another embodiment, no sew lines are formed into the body 101 at the fold lines 104, 106.
  • FIG. 2 illustrates a top view of one embodiment of the baby changing article in accordance with the present invention. As shown in FIG. 2, the changing article 200 includes a circular storage area 210 radially disposed along the body 201. The storage area 210 is useful for holding objects and supplies (e.g. diapers, powder, toys). In particular, a toy 202 is shown attached to body 201 within the storage area 210 for easy storage when not is use. The storage area 210 is formed by an additional layer of material attached to the outer edge of the body 201, whereby the additional layer is concentrically positioned with respect to the center of the body 201 and has the opening along an inner edge 204 of the storage area 210 as shown in FIG. 2. In another embodiment, at least a portion of the opening of the storage area 210 is located at the outer edge of body 201, whereby the storage area 210 is attached to the body 201 at the inner edge 204. In one embodiment, the opening of the storage area 210 is lined with a closing feature (e.g. an elastic material, Velcro®, zipper) such that objects are prevented from falling out of the storage area 210. In one embodiment, the storage area 210 is partitioned into separate pockets such that objects can be stored in the separate discreet pockets of the storage area 210. In another embodiment, the storage area 210 is not partitioned into separate pockets and is a continuous storage area.
  • In one embodiment, the changing article 100 has a 30 inch diameter, whereby the fold lines 104 are spaced apart from each other as well as the outer edge of the body 101 by 10 inches. In addition, the fold lines 106 are spaced apart from each other as well as the outer edge of the body 101 by 10 inches. The fold lines 104 and 106 intersect near the center of the body 101 to form a square center portion 108 being 10 inches in length and 10 inches in width. In one embodiment, the changing article 100 includes a concentric storage area 110, whereby the storage area 110 extends inward toward the center from the outer edge by 5 inches.
  • In another embodiment, the changing article 100 has a 24 inch diameter, whereby the fold lines 104 are spaced apart from each other as well as the outer edge of the body 101 by 8 inches. In addition, the fold lines 106 are spaced apart from each other as well as the outer edge of the body 101 by 8 inches. The fold lines 104 and 106 intersect near the center of the body 101 to form a square center portion 108 being 8 inches in length and 8 inches in width. In one embodiment, the changing article 100 includes a concentric storage area 110, whereby the storage area 110 extends inward toward the center from the outer edge by 4 inches. Alternatively, the storage area 110 extends inward by any other appropriate distance. It should be noted that the changing article 100 alternatively has any other dimensions and is not limited to the dimensions discussed. It is preferred that the fold lines 104, 106 are equally spaced in the body 101, however it is not necessary.
  • The changing article 100 is preferably made of vinyl, although plastic-covered cloth is also contemplated. In other embodiments, the changing article 100 is made of other materials, including but not limited to, nylon, cotton, fleece and canvas. It is apparent that any other appropriate material is contemplated. The material of the changing article 100 should be such that the material can be easily wiped clean. Alternatively, the changing article 101 is manufactured to be disposable, whereby the material of the changing article 100 can be made of paper or other readily disposable material. The changing article 100 is preferably constructed by forming two pieces of cloth or other material to have the same circular design. The two circular pieces are then preferably sewed to one another along the circular outer edge to form the body 101, whereby preferably a folded braid 208 (FIG. 2) is sewed to the outer edge. In one embodiment, a padding material (e.g. foam) is placed in between the two circular pieces, although not necessary. Alternatively, only one piece of cloth is utilized to form the body 101. Following, fold lines 104, 106 are formed into the body 101 in the arrangement described above, whereby the fold lines 104, 106 are preferably sewed into the body 101.
  • The handles 112 are also preferably attached to the outer edge of the circular body 101, whereby the handles are positioned ninety degrees from each other with respect to the center of the body 101. In one embodiment, the storage area 110 is attached to the body 101 by sewing the outer edge of the storage area 110 to the outer edge of the circular body 101, such that the opening of the storage area 110 faces inward toward the center of the body 101. In addition, it is contemplated in the one embodiment to form individual pockets of the storage area 110. Alternatively, at least a portion of the inner edge of the storage area 110 is attached to the body 101 to form the opening to be at the outer edge of the body 101 (e.g. folded braid). The handles 112 are preferably made of a cloth material. In one embodiment, the handles 112 are made of a material which is slightly elastic to easily secure any of the handles 112 around the square shape folded body 108. It should be noted that the handles 112 are preferably of a length which does not pose a hazard to the child.
  • FIGS. 3-10 illustrate one folding procedure of one embodiment of the baby changing article in accordance with the present invention. The changing article 100 is shown laid substantially flat on a surface in FIG. 3. To close the changing article 100 into a closed position, the user folds flap 114 inward toward the center of the body 101 about the fold line 104 as shown in FIG. 4. The user then folds the opposite flap 116 inward toward the center of the body 101 about the fold line 104, as shown in FIG. 5. The user then folds flap 118 inward toward the center of the body 101 about the fold line 106, as shown in FIG. 6. The user then folds flap 120 inward toward the center of the body 101 over the folded flap 118 about the fold line 106, as shown in FIG. 7, to completely fold the changing article into the folded position, as shown in FIG. 8. This forms a square shaped folded body 108, as shown in FIG. 8.
  • As stated above and shown in FIG. 8, the handles 112 are preferably positioned such that one handle 112A is able to secure the article 100 in the closed position, and another handle 112B is exposed to allow the user to carry the article 100 in the closed, folded position. The handle 112A secures the article 100 closed, whereby the handle 112A is secured around the square center portion 108 of the folded body 101 as shown in FIG. 9. In particular, as shown in FIG. 9, the handle 112A traverses from a first side of the square folded body to the opposite side of the square folded body 108, as shown in FIG. 9. Once the article 100 is in its folded closed carrier position, the user is able to carry the article 100 using the other exposed handle 112B, as shown in FIG. 10. The remaining two handles 112 are preferably hidden within the folded article 100. It is contemplated that the article 100 is opened by reversing the order by which the article 100 is closed.
  • Alternatively, the article 100 is secured in its closed, carrier position by any other means (e.g. Velcro®, button). It should also be noted that the steps described above for folding the article 100 is only one method of closing the article, and any other appropriate method of opening and closing the article 100 is contemplated. For example only, the article 100 is closed by first folding the flap 114 about fold line 104; then folding the adjacent flap 118 about fold line 106; folding the following flap 116 about fold line 104; and then folding flap 120 about the fold line 106. Thus, the article 100 is able to be opened or closed securely and also able to be easily carried with one hand, irrespective of the order in which the article 100 is folded. In addition, the article 100 when folded is substantially flat so that the folded article 100 is able to be easily placed in a small enclosed space (e.g. purse, diaper bag).
  • Although the fold lines shown and described in the Figures above are preferred, the article is folded in any other alternative manner. For instance, FIGS. 11A-14 illustrate different embodiments of the present changing article having various folding features.
