BABY TRAVEL DINER Filed Sept. 11, 1956' IN VENTOR I MINNIE DAUGHERTY UnitedStates Patent O BABY TRAVEL DINER I Minnie Daugherty, Little Rock, Ark. Application September 11, 1956, Serial No. 609,322 1 Claim. (Cl. 126-263) This invention relates to heating devices. 'It is 'an object of the present invention to provide a novel means for heating foods, particularly baby foods,

- which does not require a source of electricity and which may therefore be used in the home, automobiles, trains, outings and on shopping trips. 2

It is' another object of the present invention to provide a heating means of'the' above'type which is portable, simple, economical and has no limitations as to where it may be used, as well as fulfilling a definite need on the part of most mothers in this age of travel when it becomes feeding time for babies.

Other objects of the invention are to provide a heating device bearing the above object in mind which is of simple construction, has a minimum number of parts, is inexpensive to manufacture and eflicient in use.

For other objects and for a better understanding of the invention, reference may be had to the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a preferred embodiment of the present invention;

Fig. 2 is an exploded perspective view of certain parts of the invention; and

Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view through the heating compartment.

Referring now more in detail to the drawing, indicates generally a rigid housing having an intermediate horizontal compartment, not shown, providing upper compartments and a lower compartment 11 for a thermos bottle or the like and access to which is had by the hingeably mounted end door 12 retained in theclosed position by the latch means 13. The upper portion of the housing 10 is divided into further compartments by the partitions 14, 15, 16, and 17. A suitable cover 18 is provided for enclosing these upper compartments as well as having latch means 19. A convenient shoulder strap 20 is also provided to permit the same to be carried in the manner of a handbag.

However, the novelty of the invention resides in the heating means and the same may be enclosed in any suitable housing, as will be apparent to those skilled in the art, such housing having two separate compartments as will hereinafter become clear.. One such compartment is indicated between the partitions 16 and 17 and contains a metal container 21 (Fig. 3) having a hollow cylindrical central bore 22, this compartment being hereinafter referred to as the heating compartment.

The other compartment between the partition 17 and the end of the housing 10 contains a hollow rectangular metal container 23 which supports therewithin a solid rectangular sponge 24 having a central hollow cylindrical bore 25 (Fig. 1), the sponge 24 being previously water soaked.

A plurality of ring-shaped heating pads 26 are provided in closed containers, not shown, being open at the top and bottom and having outwardly flared upper edges,

ice

and are adapted to be inserted into the metal container 21.

'A plurality of absorbent paper ring-like members 27 are also provided being open at the top and bottom and having an outwardly flared upper edge and are adapted to be fitted onto the nursing bottle 28 having the conventional reversible nipple containing caps 29. These nursing bottles may be kept in the compartments intermediate the partitions 14, 15, 16, as shown in Fig. 1.

In operation, the heating pads 26 which are chemically treated so as to generate heat when they become wet, are removed from theircontainer, not shown, and placed within the metal container 21. The absorbent paper ringlike members 27 are then individually placed on the nursing bottles 28 and inserted downwardly into the watersoaked sponge 24 to thoroughly impregnate the members 27 with Water. The nursing bottles and absorbent paper rings are then removed from the sponge 24 and inserted into the heating pad 26 which is in turn disposed within the metal container 21 to generate heat and to heat the bottle- 28 containing milk 'or other liquid to a desired temperature without requiring electricity.

The containers for the absorbent paper rings 27 and heating pads 26 may be kept in the compartments formed between the partitions 14 and 15 and the end of the housing, or may, alternately, be disposed in the compartment 11. The arrangement of the compartments may be varied and the invention resides in the heating means.

When the nursing bottle 28and the accompanying water-soaked absorbent paper ring 27 is inserted into the heating pad 26 within the metal container 21 the milk will warm in from thirty seconds to one minute.

The housing 10 may be formed of plastic or any other suitable material in various colors and the bottle compartments may be padded and lined with rubberized washable material. The nursing bottle and absorbent paper ring and heating pad should fit snugly within the metal container 21 so as to distribute the heat evenly all around.

The material of the heating pads 26 will be similar to that employed in the machineless permanent waving pads now on the market.

The housing 10 may, of course, be in the form of a womans purse and may be carried in the same manner, although the shoulder strap construction shown is more convenient.

The thermos which is accommodated within the compartment 11 may carry prepared formula or may be used for canned milk or canned baby food.

The metal containers 21 and 23 may be formed of aluminum or other suitable material.

The metal container 23 may be provided with a removable closure, not shown.

It should not be apparent that there has been pro vided a heating means for warming milk as well as canned baby food and wherein a source of electricity is not required.

The heating pads 26 may also be provided in sheets which may be wrapped around the interior of the container 21 and around the nursing bottles 28, being flat and large enough to encircle the bottle with a small margin of foil extending to be folded together at the sides and under the bottom of the bottle. This would also provide a tight fitting sleeve or cup effect. These pads are approximately four inches by eight inches in size and they are packed in an airtight container with removable and replaceable lids. After extracting a pad from its respective container, the container should be rescaled to preserve the strength of the heating means therein contained over a longer or indefinite period of time. When using these latter types of heating pads, the absorbent paper ring members 26 will be dispensed with, the pad being wrapped around the bottle which is then inserted into the sponge 24 and removed and placed into the heating compartment 21. The milk warms quickly as the pad reaches a high temperature.

With this heating means, the owner may be prepared for a long or short trip without the problem of trying to find a means of warming milk and food. This method is also quicker and more simple to use in the home than the old method of Warming with hot water.

The device may also be used for preserving cold milk by means of the insulation metioned around the compartments. Also, by means of the thermos bottle, the proper temperature of the milk may be obtained or regulated by correct size of the heating pads.

While various changes may be made in the detail construction, it shall be understood that such changes shall be Within the spirit and scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claim.

What I claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent of the United States is:

Baby bottle heating apparatus comprising, in combination, a housing having at least two main compartments, a metal insert within one of said compartments, filling said one compartment and having a central bore extending downwardly from the top thereof, a second compartment, an upwardly opening hollow metal insert withing said second compartment, a sponge block disposed within said hollow metal insert, said sponge block having a central longitudinal bore and adapted to be impregnated with water, and a chemically treated heating pad adapted to surround a nursing bottle comprising a hollow cylindrical ring shaped heating pad member having outwardly flared upper edges adapted to receive the bottle, a second hollow cylindrical ring shaped member of absorbent paper having outwardly flared upper edges for receiving said bottle, said bottle and absorbent ring being adapted to be inserted within said sponge bore to impregnate said paper with water, said central bore of said first metal insert adapted to slidably receive said bottle therewithin with said heating pad positioned around the absorbent ring and bottle whereby the contents of said bottle may be chemically heated.
