L. B. MCANANEY NURSINGv BOTTLE HOLDER Filed April 16. 192# ATTORNEY WITNES Patented Nov. 26, 1929 UNER STTES ATE E' Fi NUnsiNG-BOTTLE HOLDER Application filed. April 16,

This invention relates to a nursing bottle holder, the general object of the invention being to provide adjustable means for holding the bottle in a position with the nipple i in the mouth of the infant and the milk gravitating to the nipple with the bottle held out of contact with the bed or other clothing so that the infant can drain the bottle and the nipple is kept in a sanitary condition through being held out of contact with the bed clothing or the like and the clothing of the infant.

A further object of the invention is to so form the gripping means for the bottle that it can be used on diiferent sizes of bottles and due to the arrangement of the tension means, the device will retain its tension for a long period of time.

Another object of the invention is to provide a foldable base to which the stem of the holding means is pivotally connected so that the holding means may be folded against the base or adjusted to any angle in relation to the base, with tension means for firmly holdA ing the bottle gripping means in any position to which it is adjusted.

This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts,

to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and specifically pointed out in the appended claims.

In describing my invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which Figure 1 is an elevation of the device, showing it as supporting a nursing bottle.

Figure 2 is a plan view. j

Figure 3 is a section on line 8-3 of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a view showing the device in folded position.

Figure 5 is a detail viewI showing the bowed ends of the members 11.

In these views, A indicates a base which is composed of two parts 1 and 2 hingedly connected together', as shown at 8, so that one part can be folded upon the other. This base 1928. Serial No. 270,428.

is preferably of the form shown in Figure 2.

A spring latch 4 is fastened to the under side of the part 1 and is adapted to engage a eeper member 5 on the lower face of part 2 to hold the parts against folding movement. The feet 6 are carried by the lower face of the base, these feet being preferably formed of semi-spherical members 0f resilient material which are suitably fastened to the base.

A post 7 is connected to the rear end of the part 1 of the base, preferably by having its threaded shank 8 threaded into a socket 9 formed on the base7 Figure 3 showing this socket as forming a support for one of the feet 6. This post is provided with an enlarged upper part which is slotted, as shown at 10, the slot being of wedge shape with its small end lowermost. The supporting` means for the bottle is composed of a pair of flat members 11 having their upper ends curved outwardly into substantially semi-circular form to form the gripping aws 1Q for the bottle, the free ends of the jaws being` provided with the lips 13 so that the bottle r can be pressed between the aws by pressing` it against these lips.

A spring plate 14 is placed on the outer face of each member 11 and the parts 11 and 14 are fastened together by the rivets 15 which pass through the lower ends of the spring plates 14 and through intermediate portions of the member 11. j The lower ends of these members 11 are slightly bowed outwardly, as shown at 11 in Figure 5 and placed in the slot 10 and are pivotally secured to the post by the bolt 16 which is preferably provided with a winged head. Y The jaws are covered by resilient material, as shown at 17, and I prefer to cover the stem of the holding means to prevent particles of foreign matter from getting between the two members 11, which would prevent them from fully closing. This latter covering'means is not shown.

From the foregoing it will be seen that the device can readily be folded, as shown in Figure 4 so that it will occupy but little space when not in use and that when in use, the bottle clamping means can be adjusted to any desired position in relation to the base so that 100 it can be readily adjusted to a position to properly hold the bottle to enable the infant to reach the nipple and to hold the bottle in aninclinedposition so that the milk will gravitate to the nipple. By bowing the ends of the member ll and making the slot lOot wedge shape the friction between the members ll and the post will increase as the clamping means are moved toward a vertical position Jrom a horizontal position and this friction will act to irmly hold the clamping means in any position to which it is adjusted.

The device may be placed with its base under a. pillow or the like to firmly hold the device with the bottle in position and as before stated, the device will hold the bottle above the bed clothing or the like and thus prevent the nipple from being contaminated by coming` in contact with such clothing.

That I claim is 1. A nursing bottle holder comprising a oldable base, an upright connected with one end of the base, pair of bottle holding jaws having their stems pivoted to the upright, moans for producing Jfriction between the stems and the ifipright to hold the jaws in adjusted position, such means consisting or a slot of wedge shape in the upright for receiving the lower ends of the stems, said ends being bowed outwardly and a pivot pin passing through the upright and the said ends.

2. A. bottle holding device comprising a base, a slotted upright carried by the base, a pair of spring members having their upper ends bent to form jaws and their lower ends bowed and placed in the slot of the upright, a pivot passing through the upright and the said ends and spring plates engaging the outer sides ot the spring members and having their lower ends `iastened to said members.

3. A bottle holding` device comprising a base, a slotted upright carried by the base, a pair of spring members having their upper ends bent to form jaws and their lower ends bowed and placed in the slot of the upright, a pivot passing through the upright and the said ends, spring plates engaging the outer sides ol the spring members and having their lower ends fastened to said members, said base ieing formed of two parts hingedly connected together and latch means for holding the parts in unfolded position.

Ll. A nursing bottle holder comprising a flat base, a short upright thereon, a pair of stems having their upper ends bent to provide bottle holding jaws, means for pivotally connecting the lower ends of the stems to the upright, a pair of leaf springs, one of which is placed on the outer face' of each stem and means for fastening the lower ends ot the springs andthe stems together.

5. A nursing bottle holder comprising a tat base formed of two sections'which lare hingedly connected together, latch means for holding the sections in alignment with each LOUIS BOLLUS MGANANEY.
