REENFORCING MEANS FOR NIPPLES Application filed April 27,
the nipple in the normal outwardpositicn and prevents the nipple from becoming pressed inwardly. A further object ofv my invention is to provide a device of the type described in which the prevention of a depression of the nipple obviates the irritation of the child and the necessity of the nurse or mother to take the bottle from .the child and. return the nipple to its normal position.
A further object of my invention is to provide a device of the type described which protects the nipple against destruction.
A further object of my invention is to provide a device of the type described which may be applied to a metal container or hottle, thus preventing breakage.
. A further object of my invention is to pro-' vide a device of the type described which has novel means for varying the flow of the contentsof the bottle through the nipple.
Other objects and advantages will appear in the following specification, and the novel features. of the invention will be particularly pointed out in the appended claim.
My invention is illustrated in the accom- I panying drawings, forming part of this application, in which Figure 1 is a central sectional view of my device as applied to a bottle, and
Figure 2 is a section substantially along the line 2-2 of Figure 1.
In carrying out my invention, I provide a body portion 1 which has arcuate-shaped walls 2 and an internally threaded portion 3 at the lower extremity thereof. An opening A is provided at the top of the body por tion 1 and is arranged to receive a cover 5 1928. Serial No. 273,315.
I which is provided with a plurality of relatively small openings- 6.
t FFICEY The body portion 1 may be secured to a bottle 7 having a threaded upper portion 8.
It will be understood that the bottle 7 may be constructed of any suitable material, such as glass or metal. A nipple 9 is arranged to be disposed over'thebody portion 1 and is provided with a beaded portion 10 which extends beneath the lower end or shoulder 11 of the body portion 1. The nipple 9 is provided with an outlet opening 12.
\From the foregoing description of the various parts of the device, the operation thereof may be readily understood. The cover is frictionally held in the opening 4 and it is obvious that the cover may be provided with any number of the openings 6 and that these openings may be disposed in any desired position and may be of anynum her. The purpose of this is to vary the speed at which the contents of the bottle 7 may flow therethrough; as, for instance, if the child is extremely young. a cover with rel atively small openings therein will be provided, thus allowing the contents of the bottle to flow therethrough relatively slowly.
It will be noted that the. nipple9 conforms to the body portion 1 and is held against displacement thereby. Furthermore, the cover 5 may be employed when itjis desirous of allowing the contents of the bottle to flow relatively slowly through the nipple.
through the nipple, the cover 5 maybe re moved.
The body portion 1, together with the cover 5 and the nipple, maybe readily cleansed by removing the bottle 7 therefrom.
7 When it is desirous of allowing the contents to flow at the ordinary rate of speed It is also obvious that the nipple 9 may be readily removed from the body portion 1 and thoroughly, cleansed. I claim: r A device of the type described comprising a vrigid body portion arranged to be disposed in a nursing nipple having a main body portion, a mouth portion, and a bead disposed at the open end oif said main body portion, said rigid body portion arranged to be disposed in the main body portion of said nipple and extend "from said bead portion to said mouth portion and engage With the inner Wall of the main body portion of said nipple, whereby the main body portion of said nipple may be held against depression.
Signed at Little Rock in the county of P11- laski and State of Arkansas, this 20th day of April, A. D. nineteen hundred and twenty-eight.
