jam i?, E95@ R. ROBIN NURSING BOTTLE HOLDER Filed Oct. 22, 1948 fllll.

/ ...lll/T741 Patented Jan. 17, 1950 NURSING BOTTLE HOLDER Robert Rodin, Philadelphia, Pa.assignor, by direct and mesne assignments, of two-thirds to W. Victor Rodin and Leonard Helfenstein, both of Philadelphia, Pa.

Application october 22, 194s, serial No. 56,015

The present invention relates to nursing bottle holders, and more particularly to a device adapted to hold and retain a babys nursing bottle in .position on the breast of the person feeding the baby (hereinafter called the mother) the bottle being suspended from the mothers neck, for use in feeding the baby when held by the mother, and stressing the comfort and well-being of the baby during wthe feeding while providing for the convenience of the mother. v ,v The present invention relates to nursing bottle holders, and more particularly to a new device adapted to hold a babys nursing bottle in a proper position on the chest of a person who is holding the baby for the purpose of feeding it milk or other liquids from the bottle, so as to eliminate the necessity for manual holding of the bottle.

One object of the present invention is to provide a novel nursing bottle holder, consisting of a combination of an adjustable cloth-like belt and a cloth-like pouch removably attached to the belt, the belt being adapted to be worn about the neck of the person holding and feeding the baby and the pouch being adapted to enclose the nursing bottle, which combination is adapted to hold the bottle in the proper angle and position on the chest of the wearer for feeding the baby, thereby making it unnecessary to hold the bottle by hand, leaving one hand free and providing a less fatiguing method of affording the baby the feeling of security derived from being held during the feeding.

Another object is to provide a novel nursing bottle holder which affords a means for stable positioning of the bottle on the chest of the person holding and feeding the baby so as to avoid the pressure and weight of the bottle on the babys mouth which may accompany manual holding of the bottle.

Other objects will appear from the following description and appended claims as well as from the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the novel nursing bottle holder in position for nursing on the mothers breast and with a commercial form of bottle resting in the pouch, and showing a baby feeding from the bottle.

Fig. 2 is a close-up view of the bottle holder.

Fig. 3 is a view in vertical cross-section through the bottle pouch and showing the slit in the bag and the overlap.

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the nursing bottle holder showing in solid lines the upward position of the bottle at one shoulder of the mother 3 Claims. (Cl. 224-5) Vbelt is a ring 3 and a hook 4.

2 which leaves sufficient space on the chest and other shoulder of the mother on which the baby may be placed for belching, and showing in broken lines a position of the bottle holder which may be used to prevent dripping of the contents of the bottle during an interruption of the feeding.

Referring more particularly to the disclosure vin the drawing, the belt l is adjustable for length by means of the adjustor 2. At each end of the Easily attached to the hooks are the pouch loops 5, which extend from the pouch 6. The pouch, which completely encloses and covers the nursing bottle l, has an elasticized opening 8, and a slit 9 with an overlap l0 which when separated reveals the contents of the nursing bottle.

It will be readily appreciated that by moving either end of the belt up or down, the pouch may be adjusted to the proper angle either for feeding or to prevent dripping, and that the bottle may also be moved to an upward position at or near one shoulder of the mother so that the mother can place the baby upon her other shoulder for belching during the feeding, without the necessity of removing the bottle or pouch from the belt. It is also apparent that the slit and overlap, being located on a line with the loops at the top of the pouch (it may of course be l0- cated at any point along such line) will be accessible to the mother for inspecting the contents of the bottle whether it be attached in a position for feeding the baby on the left or on the right side of the mother, and that the overlap, since it requires separation in order to reveal the contents of the bottle, is snug enough to prevent an appreciable loss of heat through the slit in the pouch.

Having thus disclosed the invention, I claim:

1. A nursing bottle holder comprising a belt having ends and means for adjusting the length of the belt, a substantially cylindrical flexible cover or pouch having a conned open end having elastic material in said open end and a closed end for enclosing an infant nursing bottle but permitting the end of the nursing bottle to protrude through said open end, said pouch having spaced independently mounted fastening members directly attached to said pouch arranged at a distance from each other longitudinally thereof, said belt ends each having attaching means for attachment to said fastening members and a slit in said pouch, said slit extending longitudinally of said pouch to permit inspection of a bottle enclosed by said pouch.

2. A nursing bottle holder comprising a belt having ends and means for adjusting the length of the belt, a substantially cylindrical flexible cover or pouch having a confined open end having elastic material in said open end and a closed end for enclosing an infant nursing bottle but permitting the endet the nursing bottle to protrude through said open end, said pouch having spaced independently mounted fastening members directly attached to said pouch arranged at a distance from each other longitudinally thereof, said belt ends each having attaching means for attachment to said fastening members, at least one of said attaching `means consisting of a readily attachable member adapted for engagement or disengagement with one of said fastening members of said pouch, and a slit i-n said pouch and an overlap in said pouch extending over said slit, said slit and said overlap extending longitudinally of said pouch to permit inspection of a bottle enclosed by said pouch.

A nursing bottle holder comprising a belt hav-ing ends and means for adjusting the length of the belt, a substantially cylindrical flexible cover or pouch having a confined open end and a closed end for enclosing an infant nursing bottle but permitting the end of the nursing bottle Vto protrude through said open end, said pouch having spaced independently mounted fastening members directly attached to said pouch arranged at a distance from each other longitudinally thereof, said belt ends each having attaching means for attachment to said fastening members, at least one of said attaching means consisting of a readily attachable member adapted for engagement or disengagement with one of said fastening members of said pouch, said attaching means pn each -of the ends of `:said belt each including a-hook, andsaid 4fastening members on said pouch each comprising a loop, adapted to be engaged by one of said hooks, and a slit in said pouch and an overlap in said pouch extending over said slit, said slit and said overlap extending longitudinally of said pouch to permit inspection of a bottle enclosed by said pouch.
