of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to i make and use the same. 7
This invention relates'to a nursing bottle 'which is more sanitary than those in common use, and has special reference to one in which the nipple can be placed'in position.
with the greatest ease and with no danger of upsetting the bottle in the operation.
By referring to the drawings it will be seen that, to place the nipple in position, it 7 is not necessary to handle the inside portion of the nipple or the mouth of the bottle as must be done when placing the nipple on nursing bottles in common use. My invention, therefore, covers a strictly sanitary nursing bottle. I 7
To attach the nipple, according to my invention, it is merely necessary to set the nipple on the'curved' top of'the bottle (the curved top acts as a guide and spreader) and press downward with a firm steady pressui'e either with the hand or with the special nipple-seating tool. shown in the drawings, until the nipple reaches its proper position. The operation is simple and positive and eliminates any possibility of upsetting the bottle or spilling the contents even by persons unskilled in the placing of the nipple.
The preferred form of the invention is shown in Fig. 3, where the guide and spreader is integral with the receptacle; although I havemade guides and Spreaders and attached them to thereceptacles, it is also possible to get results by using a guide and spreader as shown in Fig. 5, which is a ring adapted to fit in the mouth of the receptacle Fig. 6. After its action of guiding and spreading the nipple into place on the receptacle Fig. 6, the ring remains inside the nipple while the nipple is firmly held by the time as the nipple is bead (9), until such removed, when all parts can be separated and thoroughly sterilized.
The guide and spreader portion 5 engages and braces the walls of the nipple Fig. '4:

when in place on the bottle Fig. '3 and prevents collapsing of the nipple.-
Referring now to the drawings, Fig. l is a side view of a nursing bottle showing a bead (1) near the top for holding the nipple in place, also the curved-top of the bottle (2) which acts as a guide and spreader to carry the nipple into place when a downward pressure is exerted. 5
Fig. 2, directly above the bottle, ready to be putin place, is the nipple showing the thickened or reinforced rim (3) and a portion of the nipple turned up on the outside.
This turned up portion will snap over the head or ridge;(1) on the bottle, after the nipple has beenspread to itsvproper diameter by the spreader (2) in consequence of a steady downward movement either of the hand orot the special nipple-seating tool shown Fig. 7. The action is to firstspread the openmg in the nipple and then guide it TES PA ENTJ FH E into place where it will snap over the bead i (1) and have a firm hold on the nursing bottle without the necessity of touching the inside of the nipple or the mouth of the bottle.
' In operation, the nipple is set down on" the guide and spreader portion (2) of the bottle Fig. l, and the fingers grip the nipple just above the turned up rim portion (3) and with a steady downward pressure the nipple is spread to its proper diameterand Y finally the turned up portion is snapped over the ridge port-ion of the bottle.
Fig. 3, is a side view of a nursing bottle showing a groove (4) near the top and just above this the guide and spreader portion (5). The nipple, Fig. 4, which is used with this'bottle terminates in a ring (6) eXtending both inwardly and outwardly from the wall or" the nipple, which adapts it to fit snugly into the groove (4c).
In; operation by placing the nipple, Fig. 4, on the guide and spreader portion (5) and exerting a steady downward pressure,
the nipple is first spread and then snaps '100' into place without the necessityot handling 1 either the inside of the nipple or the mouth of the bottle and the extended upper portion 5 supports the walls of the nipple against;
Fig. 5, is a ring of suitable material having a cone shaped upper portion (7) toact as a guide and spreader, while the lower portion (8).is a flange adapted to .fit into the mouth of a receptacle such as Fig. 6,
showing a portion of the nipple-seatingtool 7 (ll) in position for forclng a nipple into place on a receptacle. Y
7 2,1 ndlf are g is" i blun ends for engagement with the nipple While the other ends are secured in a handle (11). In? order to make thedrawing clearer,'tWo
fingers opposite 1 3 and 14 are not shown.
7 By the use of this nipple-seating tool the nipple can be forced into position Without any portion of the nipple being touched by the human hands after sterilization. v Having thus described the invention,
