Sept. 5, 1967 G. BALLIN INFANT FEEDING CONTAINER AND CAP ASSEMBLY Filed May 17, 1966 INVENT 6 EN E BAL ATTORNEYS United States Patent f 3,339,771 INFANT FEEDING CONTAINER AND CAP ASSEMBLY Gene Ballin, 3045 Shore Drive, Merrick, N.Y. 11566 Filed May 17, 1966, Ser. No. 550,809 7 Claims. (Cl. 21511) This invention relates to an infant feeding container and more particularly to a combined infant feeding container and cap assembly suitable for use in pre-sterilizing the container, nipple and contents therein and maintaining such sterilization until the contanier is ready for use.

Conventionally, an infant feeding bottle and cap has a nipple on one end and a threaded cap for maintaining the nipple in sealed position with the top of the bottle. Various methods heretofore have been used to maintain the bottle and nipple in sterile condition prior to use, such as by physically removing the nipple and inverting it, so that the nipple extends into the interior of the bottle, and covering the reversed nipple with a plate or disk. A cap maintains the seal and is threaded on the bottle until the bottle is ready to be used. The cap is unthreaded and the nipple carefully removed from the bottle, turned over, and the cap with the plate removed placed around the nipple and rethreaded on the bottle to make a seal between the underside of the flange of the nipple and the top of the bottle to prevent leakage. While this construction offers advantages of being able to pre-sterilize the interior and contents of the container, to maintain such sterilization, care has to be taken in removing and reversing the nipple just prior to use, or else the sterile condition is destroyed.

Another prior art construction has utilized a nipple cover which fitted over the erect nipple portion after sterilization to maintain it in sterile condition until ready to be used. In use this cover was physically removed and the bottle was ready to be used. This construction offered serious disadvantages in that the cover had to be sterilized separately and often was not put on correctly or, if put on correctly, it was difficult to remove.

Attempts have been made heretofore to prebottle feeding formula for infants in the infant feeding containers in sterile condition, so that the infant feeding containers are ready to be used and hence the necessity of individual mixing of ingredients to prepare formula for a day, or sterilizing the filled bottles, is avoided. One method of doing this is shown in my prior Patent No. 3,219,221

. issued Nov. 23, 1965.

The present invention aims at providing an improved infant feeding container and cap assembly which can be prepackaged with formula in sterilized condition, which sterile condition can be maintained until the bottle is ready to be used, and which container requires the minimum amount of time to make it ready for use, by even the most unskilled help.

According to the present invention, a cap assembly is provided for a bottle having a nipple affixed to the bottle and extending erect therefrom in a ready-to-be-used position. Means are also provided for depressing the nipple inwardly into the interior of the container so that the nipple in conjunction with a disk provided below the nipple forms a seal to prevent the expulsion of any of the contents of the bottle prior to use. In the depressed position the bottle, nipple and contents are sterilized. The bottle is ready to be used by simply removing the outer cap assembly and allowing the nipple to spring into erect position in sterile condition ready for use.

The invention will be described in greater detail below and in the drawings, in which:

FIGURE 1 is a front elevational view, in section, show- 3,339,771 Patented Sept. 5, 1967 ing the general arrangement of a cap assembly in combination with a nipple on an infant feeding container, in accordance with the present invention;

FIGURE 2 is a front elevational view, in section, of the arrangement shown in FIGURE 1, with the cap assembly removed;

FIGURE 3 is an enlarged view of the area of the nipple adjacent the top rim of the bottle;

FIGURE 4 is a top plan view of the sealing disk; and

FIGURE 5 is a front elevational view, in partial section, showing a further embodiment of a cap assembly, in sealed condition.

Referring first to the embodiment shown in FIGURES 1 through 4 of the drawings, numeral 10 generally designates a bottle or other type of container with which a cap assembly 11, constructed in accordance with the present invention may be used. Bottle 10 is of a general configuration similar to the conventional infant feeding bottle heretofore used and has an opening 12 at the top.

Bottle 10 contains a liquid 13 which may be milk or any other formula prescribed for feeding, and is provided with a neck 16 having exterior threads 14 thereon. Neck 16 has a reduced diameter mouth 18 which forms a shoulder 17 with the threaded neck portion 16. The upper edge of mouth 18 has an annular flange section 19 directed outwardly. A portion of mouth 18 extends above the annular flange 19 forming an annular horizontal surface 20.

As shown in FIGS. 2 and 3, a flexible nipple 21 is mounted on mouth 18. The bottom edge of the nipple 21 contains anannular inwardly extending rib 22 which abuts shoulder 17 on the bottom and abuts shoulder 23 of annular ring 19 on the top to form a tight sealing engagement. Surrounding the outer peripheral surface of nipple 21 and horizontally aligned with rib 22 is an annular rib 24 which has an upwardly and outwardly tapered inner surface spaced from the outer surface of nipple 21 when nipple 21 is in its normal erect position as shown in FIGURE 3. Nipple 21 is provided with an opening 25 at its top center.

A cap assembly 11 mounted on container 10 includes a cap 26 having tubular side walls 27. The interior of side wall 27 is provided with a series of threads 28 complementary to threads 14. The outer peripheral surface of cap 26 may, if desired, be provided with a knurled or roughened surface to aid gripping and rotating the cap on the bottle. The interior of cap 26 is also provided with an inwardly extending annular shoulder 29.

Referring particularly to FIGURE 3 the interior of nipple 21 is provided with an annular groove 30 having a rectangular cross-section. The groove 30 is located so that it is a small distance above the top of shoulder 20 of the bottle 10 when the nipple is in its erect position. Coaxially located within nipple 21 is an insert 32 which is disposed within groove 30 of the nipple. Insert 32 contains an edge portion 31 designed to fit groove 30 with a close sealing relationship. Insert 32 is of sufficient size so that an annular horizontal portion 34 extends across shoulder 20 of bottle 10. As shown in FIG. 4, peripherally disposed around annulus 34 of insert 32 is a series of openings 33. Insert 32 may be made of plastic or any other suitable material which will not deform when subjected to sterilizing temperatures and which will be nonreactive in contact with the interior contents of bottle 10.

In operation insert 32 is installed in nipple 21 and the entire nipple assembly is then forced over the rim of the bottle so that the rib 22 is located in the recess formed by 17 and 23 in a tight sealing relationship. Cap 26 is then threaded onto threads 14 and tightened downwardly. The top portion of nipple 21 will be depressed downwardly into the receptacle provided in insert 32 and the cap is then tightened further until the entire nipple assembly 3 and insert is depressed onto shoulder 20 of rim 18. When the cap is in its fully tightened position insert 32 will be forced downwardly so that annulus 34 will be in abutting relationship with shoulder 20 of bottle 10. In this position peripheral holes 33 are sealed against shoulder 20. The rubber material of the nipple 21 exterior of the insert 32 will be forced outwardly causing a tight sealing fit with the interior surface of cap 26. In addition, as cap 26 is tightened, shoulder 29 will engage rib 24 at the bottom periphery of the nipple causing a tight sealing relationship to prevent entry of contaminants from outside of the bottle. The seal thus formed prevents leakage of the contents or of vapor formed during the sterilization processing or entry of contaminated air, until the cap is loosened when the container is ready to be used. Further, insert 32 when in a sealed position prevents contact between the bottle contents and the nipple thereby preventing deterioration of the nipple by contact with the milk.

Referring to FIGURE 2, to utilize the container and contents, cap 26 need merely be removed. When cap 26 is removed the resiliency of nipple 21 will cause it to spring upwardly moving insert 32 upwardly with it thereby opening passages 33 so that the contents of the bottle can pass over shoulder 20 and out through openings 33. The milk or other material contained within the bottle will pass through openings 33 into the nipple where it may be utilized by the infant in the normal manner. Annular portion 34 of insert 32 must be located sulficiently above shoulder 20 so as to prevent clogging of the passage area by the liquid being used to feed the infant. Since there is no necessity to touch the nipple or any portion of the interior of the bottle in the preparation of the bottle for use, no contamination can result.

FIGURE discloses a modified form of the cap assembly utilizing the same general arrangement as that shown in FIGURE 1.

A container 50 for milk, feeding formula or other liquid to be supplied to an infant contains an annular outwardly extending rib 51 spaced a small distance below the top of the bottle. A nipple and insert assembly 57 and 58 of the same general configuration as that shown in FIG- URE l is mounted at the top of bottle 50. The lower edge of nipple 57 contains an inwardly extending annular rib 53 which is designed to fit below and against rib 51. The nipple 57 and insert 58 engage shoulder 60 of bottle 50 in the same manner as in FIGURE 1 so to close openings 33 when the cap is in its sealed position.

A one-piece cap 54 is adapted to be removably mounted on the neck of bottle 50 and has a top wall portion 52 and an annular side wall portion 61. An inwardly extending annular lip 62 is located at the bottom edge of the cap assembly.

To assemble cap 54 onto container 50, the cap is placed above the erect nipple 57 and forced downwardly. This forces the nipple into the compressed position shown in FIGURE 5 and at the same time seals openings 33 of insert 58 against shoulder 60. As shown in FIGURE 5 the lower edge of cap 54 is then bent'inwardly under rim 59 of nipple 57 sealing the entire bottle from outside contaminents. Cap assembly 54 can be easily removed by pulling tab 55 which can be pulled out by the user and rolled back. Area 56 constitutes an area of weakened material which allows the upper portion of cap 54 to be separated from the bottle. When the separation occurs the nipple will spring outwardly raising insert 58 away from shoulder 60and allowing the contents of the bottle to be evacuated. The remaining portion of cap 54 will seal the lower edge of nipple 57 so that no leakage can occur and to prevent the nipple from sliding down the bottle.

The cap inserts, as described above, may be molded of any suitable material, such as any of the many available appropriate synthetic organic resins, and may be polyethylene, polypropylene formaldehyde urea or deformable metals, such as aluminum or copper or combinations of these materials.

While preferred embodiments of the invention have been described above, it will be understood that these are illustrative only, and the invention is limited solely by the appended claims.
