v'to use.

:It:is a further :object of this invention to provide a container .11" or a .;nursing bottle which will protect said bottle (from accidental i breakage and will act to retain the :bottle and its .;contents .at

.a constant temperature.

.An additional lobiect of this invention :is to provide a. containeraior 1.311 infantfs nursing bottle which is also :.capable .:of acting as a support ;for

said bottle while :the .contents thereof .are :being consumed :by the infant .and wherein .the posi- :tion of the .bottle .may be readily adjusted .and varied as :desired.

Other and afurthen obj ectsiofxthis invention will become apparent :from .the description thereof "contained in .the annexed specifications .and. claims or will otherwise become obvious. .iIt -.will be understood .that ;.the invention herein xdis- "closed may :be employed llfOr other purposes :to

which the adapted.

In the accompanying drawings: Figure 1 isa'perspective view of the device in structure and arrangement .are

.open position, showing a! conventional baby nursing bottle being inserted therein;

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the device in closed condition showing the other side thereof as well as a conventional nursing bottle ,posi- "tioned therein as indicated by the broken :lines;

Figure 3 is a perspective view of the device showin .a baby nursing bottle positioned in the bottle retaining band ready for use in ifeeding an infant,and

Figure ,4 is a cross-section of {the deviceshowing a fragment of the bottlerretainingiband.

The device is illustrated in Figure 1 01' the drawings and is designated generally by the numeral iii. The device comprise a container or receptacle the interior of which forms a pocket H which is adapted to receive an infants nursing bottle I2. The container may be opened or closed by means of the cooperating elements of a zipper closure l3 as may be seen from Figure 2 wherein the container is shown in closed condition with a baby nursing bottle located therein being shown by broken lines. A bottle retaining band i 4 is secured to one of the exterior walls of container l medially of its length as will be more fully described hereafter.

parts a definite .shape thereto. this construction the container .is formed with The construction of the container is more clearly shown in Figure 4 and comprises two side walls [5 and i5 and a bottom wall ll whichform acontainer of substantially triangular cross-section. The walls of the container are defined by an outer or cover ply and an inner or lining plyofmateriallB andldrespectively. The material utilized for this purpose .is preferably a pliable .and .fiexible plastic .film, although .o'ther suitable fabrics or material may be utilizedior this purpose. It has Lbeen found advanta eous to utilize a material which is impervious .or resistant to the penetration of moisture. .Alayer of heat insulatingpadding material suhasglass wool 29 is inserted between the layers of cover andlinin materialfor the purpose of maintaining the bottle and its contents at an even temperature.

The'bottom wall H .of the container is additionally provided with a layer 2| of foamrubber or ofa similar suitable soft resilientlyyieldable material. .The layer of foam rubber being more rigid thanheat insulating paddingzfi thus defines a bottom wall for thecontainer and im .As a result .of

abottom .wall I] from whichside walls lfian'cl l6 rise. Itshould be noted that the cover material is formed-of a unitary sheet .of material,

the ends thereof being brought together and joined as :shown at 2.2 preferably by stitching.

.As may .be seenmore clearly .from Figures .1 and 3 closed ends-are thus formed for the container. The ends of the lining material are similarly joined. The upper edges .of thecover and lining material ,are .joined to each other as by stitchin and form a longitudinally disposed opening along substantially the entire length of the container through which a nursing bottle may be inserted or removed. Cooperating ele- .-ments of -.a zipper closure is are secured .be-

tween the upper edges of the lining and cover material as shown at 23.

It will be seen from the foregoing that by rea son of the arrangement herein described an elongated container of substantially triangular crosssection is formed and provided with a longitudinally disposed opening giving access thereto. The interposition of a layer of heat insulating padding material between the wall of the container adapts said container to maintain its contents at a constant temperature. Adequate rigidity is imparted to the container without acrificing the essentially soft character thereof by the interposition of an additional layer of foam rubber at the bottom.

The number of seams or joints required in forming the container is minimized by utilizing a unitary'sheet of cover material joined at its ends only thereby tending to further minimize heat losses and reducing the possibility of leakage from the container should the contents of the nursing bottle be spilled therein. 7 a

Bottle retaining band H5 is secured to side walls ill of the container by means of stitching 24. The band may advantageously be formed of a strip of material folded over upon itself and suitably secured along its meeting edges as more clearly appears from Figure 4. A thin strip of soft material such as cotton batting may also be interposed between the layers or surface material and the entire band quilted to prevent displacement thereof. The bottle retainin band is of substantially the same dimensions as side wall l4 and is adapted to lie flat against said wall when not in use. separable fastening elements 25 are secured along the ends of the band thereby adapting said band to encircle and retain a feeding bottle when the ends are brougt together and secured to each other by means of separable fasteners. 25.

As more clearly appears from Figure 3, the zipper closure of the container is opened when a bottle is inserted in the retaining band and the container is positioned for use in feeding an inrant. This arrangement permits the upper edge of side wall I6 to be brought in overlapping relation with respect to the upper edge of side wall i5 so that the bottle may be adjusted in a variety of positions and may be appropriately oriented with respect to the position of the base of the container to suit the convenience and position of the infant. Thedegree of overlap ma be varied as desired and forms a good support for the feeding bottle in the position to which it is adjusted. It should also be noted that stitching 25 securing the retaining band to the wall of the container extends along a very narrow portion of the length of the band. As a consequence of this arrangement only a very narrow centrally disposed transverse strip alon the band is secured to the container and both the band and the bottle retained therein are free to swivel from side to side with very little effort being applied by the infant as shown by the broken lines 26 in Figure 4. Thus the bottle may be readily adjusted in its initial position and the child is readily able to accommodate the position thereof to its natural movements during feeding without dislodging the bottle from his mouth.

I have here shown and described a preferred embodiment of my invention. It will be apparent, however, that this invention is not limited to this embodiment and that man changes, additions and modifications can be made inconnection therewith without departing from the 4 spirit and scope of the invention as herein disclosed and hereinafter claimed.

7 I claim:
