FLEXIBLE SUPPORT FOR NURSING BOTTLES Filed Nov. 15, 1948 Ticjj. //5

' INVENTOR SUSAN CLARE PEARSON ATTORNE! Patented Jan. 30, 1951 FLEXIBLE SUPPORT FOR NURSING BOTTLES Susan C. Pearson, New York, N. Y.

Application November 15, 1948, Serial No. 60,070

2 Claims.

My invention relates to the proper feeding of infants, more particularly to a means of flexibly suspending the nursing bottle, pendent, in a manner convenient to the feeding infant with his head in any position while the body is in supine position and has for its object the production of a flexible pendent supporting means adapted to hold the bottle above the infants mouth in such a position that the bottle will drain to the last drop.

A further object is to provide a flexible pendent bottle holder which can be adjustably attached to any portion of the carriage, crib support or other place where the infant may be lying.

Still another object is to provide a flexible pendent support that will through its flexibility present to the infant an inviting method of feeding so as to attract and hold his attention, and one that will prevent the infant from tossing the bottle on the floor when emptied.

A further object is to present a flexible nursing bottle holder that has no mechanical clamps, gadgets or supporting arms which might injure the infant, mar the furniture or exasperate the tired mother, at the same time to produce a holder that is economical in cost and attractive in appearance.

The foregoing and other features of my invention will now be described in connection with the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification in which I have illustrated my flexible support for nursing bottles in its preferred form, after which I shall point out in the claims those features which I believe to be new and of my own invention.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a diagrammatic sketch in perspective showing a typical nursing bottle held in proper feeding position by my flexible pendent support.

Figure 2 is a side elevation of my invention.

Figure 3 is a similar side elevation as that shown in Figure 2 only taken at right angles thereto.

Figures 4 and 5 are two views of a modification which I may employ, similar in position to those shown in Figures 2 and 3 respectively.

In the carrying out of my invention I provide a strip of tape or elastic ll. On one end thereof I provide nursingbottle engaging loops l2 and I3 sized to securely hold a standard nursing bottle I0 as shown in Figure 1. It will be observed that the loops l2 and I3 are spaced apart approximately a distance equal to one third of the height of the bottle and that when centrally positioned (ill.

2 on the bottle and held pendent, the bottle will tip so as to be in position to drain the bottle to the last drop. A further object of the two bands is to make it more difficult for the infant to remove the bottle from its pendent holder.

On the end of the elastic ll opposite the end having the loops l2 and I3, I provide means for fastening or tying the tape to a part of the bed, crib or carriage in which the infant is in supine position for feeding. I prefer to use for this fastening or tying means, snap fasteners l5, preferably riveted to the tape or elastic and spaced along the length thereof as at it, for adjustment of height of suspension of the bottle above the feeding infant.

In Figures 4 and 5, I show a modification which I may employ, in which a single loop 21 is provided on a heavy elastic tape 22. In this case the loop 23 must be placed on the bottle near the bottom so that the bottle when suspended will have the same proper tilt as shown in Figure 1.

With this type of pendent for nursing bottle I provide a supple, flexible, non-metal bottle support that reaches any forward end of the crib, and because of its extreme flexibility, the infant may feed While its head is in any position.

It will be apparent that a bottle supported in this manner cannot be tossed on the floor when infant is through for it is anchored to the crib support and due to its adjustment can be positioned exactly in relation to the infants mouth so as to provide easy manipulation by the feeding infant.

This invention also provides a means to position the bottle to eliminate weight in the young I wish it understood that my flexible support for nursing bottles herein illustrated and described is in the form in which I desire to construct it and that changes or variations may be made as may be desirable or convenient without departing from the salient features of my invention and I therefore intend the following claims to cover such modifications as naturally fall within the lines of invention.

I claim:

1. A support for nursing bottles comprising a suspension tape having on one end an elastic loop adapted to encircle a bottle and fastened to the tape with the center line of the loop at right angles to thelongitudinal center line of the tape, a second loop fastened to the tape in parallel relation to the first loop and spaced away from the end of the tape, said loops positioned on the bottle so that the suspension tape will hold the bottle in positioned inverted free suspension whereby the bottle will drain to the last drop.

2. A support for nursing bottles comprising a suspension tape having on one end an elastic loop adapted to encircle a bottle and fastened to the tape with the center line of the loop at right anglestto' the longitudinal center line of the tape and positioned on the bottle between the center of the bottle and the bottom thereof,

whereby the bottle may be suspended so thatit will drain to the last drop.

SUSAN C. PEARSON.
