M. H. BLOCK NURSING BOTTLE Feb. 20, 1934.

Filed July 25, 1932 Patented Feb. 20, 1934 NURSING BOTTLE Morris H. Block, Denver, 0010.,

assignor to Harry Kortz, David A. Block, and Phillip Kleiger, all of Denver, Colo.

Application July 25, 1932.

7 Claims.

This invention relates to improvements in nursing bottles. The object of the invention is to provide a bottle which, when in its normal resting position, is so constructed that its contents has a tendency to flow towardand out of the neck without movement. The bottle is so constructed that it has an enlargement between its longitudinal center and the bottom. And between this enlargement and the neck, it has one or more substantially flat surfaces so arranged that when the bottle is resting upon either of these surfaces, there is a tendency for the entire contents to flow out of the neck.

In the drawing, a bottle is illustrated having two of these surfaces between the enlargement and the neck, the said surfaces being located on opposite sides of the bottle. As shown in the drawing, the bottle is also provided with two substantially flat surfaces between the enlargement and the bottom of the bottle. These surfaces are inclined toward the longitudinal axis of the bottle and approach said axis as they approach the bottom of the bottle.

It is also true that the surfaces between the enlargement of the bottle and the neck also are inclined toward or approach the longitudinal axis of the bottle as they approach the neck thereof.

The bottle illustrated in the drawing is an eight ounce bottle and is provided with the usual graduations from 1 to 8 to indicate this feature.

Having thus outlined my improvement I will proceed to describe the same in detail, reference being made to the accompanying drawing in which is illustrated an embodiment thereof.

In this drawing:

Fig. 1 is a side elevation of the bottle illustrating the same in the upright or vertical position looking at the side containing two of the surfaces heretofore mentioned and containing the numerals and graduations indicating the amount or quantity which it holds;

Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the bottle when in the upright position;

Figs. 3 and 4 are cross sections taken on the lines 33 and 44, respectively of Fig. 1; and

Fig. 5 is a longitudinal section taken on the line 5-5, Fig. 1.

The same reference characters indicate the same parts in all the views.

Let the numeral 5 designate the body of the bottle and 6 the enlargement or the largest part of the bottle or its greatest size on a cross sectional plane indicated by the line 3-3, Fig. 1. Between this enlargement and the neck or discharge end, which I will designate by the numeral Serial No. 624,598

7, are two flat faces 8, each of which extends from the enlargement 6 to a point close to the neck and each of which is inclined toward the longitudinal axis as it approaches the neck so that when lying on one of these surfaces, as shown in Fig. 5, there is a tendency for substantially the entire contents of the bottle to flow out of the neck, which, in 5 of the drawing, is shown ciosed by the usual nipple 9. It is assumed that the surface 8 of the bottle is resting upon a support having a horizontal surface in contact with the said fiat face of the bottle.

Extending from the enlargement 6 toward the bottom of the bottle are two relatively short, substantially flat surfaces 10, which may be said to 2'0 be companion surfaces respectively of the two surfaces 8 heretofore described. These surfaces 10, while relatively short, increase somewhat the degree of the tendency of the flow of the liquid toward the neck when the bottle is on one of the surfacesv 8 and thus in reality perform a useful function in the structure. The graduated design 11 has the letters Ozs for ounces at its upper end, the term upper being applied to this design when the bottle is in the position shown in Fig. 1. The other features of the design are lines I transverse to the central bar, each being desig nated by one of the numerals from 1 to 8, inclusive, as heretofore noted.

It will be noted that this bottle overcomes the difficulty experienced with a nursing bottle of ordinary construction, which must have its lower end supported by some external object in order to give the contents of the bottle the required or necessary tendency to flow towards the neck without any effort on the part of the child using the bottle. 7

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:

1. A nursing bottle having at one end a nonapertured base upon which it rests when being filled through a neck at its other end and whose longitudinal axis is perpendicular to said base and extends centrally through its neck, said bottle being enlarged above its base and having opposite flat side surfaces leading from said enlarged portion toward said neck, said surfaces being in clined toward and approaching said longitudinal axis of the bottle as they approach the neck, upon either of which flat side surfaces the bottle is adapted to rest on a supporting flat surface.

2. A nursing bottle having at one end a nonapertured base upon which it rests when being filled through a neck at its other end and whose longitudinal axis is perpendicular to said base and extends centrally through its neck, said bottle being enlarged above its base and having opposite fiat side surfaces leading from said enlarged portion toward said neck, said surfaces being inclined toward and approaching said longitudinal axis of the bottle as they approach the neck, the planes of the fiat surfaces being spaced outwardly a short distance from the outer surface of the neck, and upon either of which flat side surfaces the bottle is adapted to rest on a supporting flat surface so as to tilt the bottle toward the neck to facilitate the discharge when resting on either of said fiat side surfaces.

3. A nursing bottle in accordance with claim 2 in which the bottle is also provided with opposite flat surfaces between the base outwardly to the enlarged portion to join with flat resting surfaces between the enlargement and the neck.

4. A nursing bottle in accordance with claim 2 in which the bottle is also provided with opposite flat surfaces between the base outwardly to the enlarged portion to join with flat resting surfaces between the enlargement and the neck, the faces of corresponding pairs of flat side surfaces on the bottle thereby forming an angle with respect to each other the apex of which is at the enlarged portion of the bottle, and one face of the bottle formed by said flat sides having graduations thereon extending substantially from the base over said enlargement to the neck.

5. A nursing bottle having at one end a nonapertured base upon which it rests when being filled through a neck at its other end and whose longitudinal axis is perpendicular to said base and extending centrally through its neck, said bottle being enlarged above its base and having a flat side supporting surface leading from said enlarged portion towards said neck, said surface being inclined toward and approaching said longitudinal axis of the bottle as it approaches its neck.

6. A nursing bottle having at one end a neckless, nonaperatured base upon which it rests when being filled through a neck at its other end and whose longitudinal axis is perpendicular to said base and extends centrally through its neck, said bottle being enlarged above its base and having a fiat side surface leading from said enlarged portion towards said neck, said surface being inclined toward and approaching said longitudinal axis of the bottle as said surface approaches the neck, the plane of the flat surface being spaced a short distance from the neck and upon which fiat side surface the bottle is adapted to rest on a supporting flat surface, so as to tilt the bottle toward the neck to facilitate the discharge when resting upon said fiat side surface.

'7. A nursing bottle in accordance with claim 6, in which the bottle is also provided with a flat surface between the base outwardly to the enlarged portion to join with the flat resting surface between the enlargement and the neck.
