SLEEPING BAG Filed Nov. 15, 1953 Patented June 26, 1934 UNITED STA res PATENT oFFica 3Claims.
The present invention relates to improvements in sleeping bags being especially designed and constructed for infants and small children.
It is the primary object of the invention to provide a sleeping bag of a character which will not interfere to any objectionable degree or place any objectionable limitations upon the movement of the occupant of the bag, yet will eliminate any danger of rolling off the bed and will tend at all times to locate the occupant in a comfortable healthy position.
My improved sleeping bag is exceedingly useful when traveling with small infants as it is not always possible or convenient to provide a bed having sides to prevent the infant from rolling out while sleeping. It also may be conveniently used in combination with the usual type of crib for although the danger of the infant falling out of the crib is not present it provides a convenient way of keeping the infant covered during the night and centrally located within the crib in a comfortable position.
Other objects and advantages reside in the novel construction and combination and arrange- 'ment of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described. The invention is clearly defined in the claims.
In the accompanying drawing, wherein one convenient embodiment of the invention is disclosed for the purpose of illustration,
Fig. 1 is a plan view of my improved sleeping bag.
Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1 with the anchoring sheet embracing the mattress.
Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 showing the sleeping bag in the position it will take with the occupant reposed upon his side.
Having reference to the drawing, the present invention resides in an anchoring sheet 10 of any suitable material such as washable heavy woven fabric having straps 11--11' which are adapted to be extended around the underside of the mattress or springs of the bed or crib and fastened together in some suitable manner such as being passed through the buckles 11". A bag 12, preferably of a length and width to permit the occupant thereof to occupy the same with arms and legs extended, is provided with an adjustable opening 13 which may be opened and closed by a sliding type of fastener 14 or other suitable means. The bag 12 is freely superimposed upon the anchoring sheet 10 except for a central longitudinal zone of stitching 15. Although the bag is preferably stitched along the zone 15 to the anchoring sheet 10 for the reason that no uncomfortable ridges or projections may result, obviously, it is within the scope of the present invention to button or otherwise secure the bag 12 in some suitable manner to the anchoring sheet 10 along the central zone designated. A relatively narrow band or zone of afllxation centrally of the bag has been shown between the same and the anchoring sheet 10. It is to be understood, however, that this may be widened out beyond the limits shown to a considerable extent; it being only necessary to limit the width of the central zone of afllxation between the bag and the anchoring sheet to the extent that the occupant is able to shift the bag about its central axis and turn from side to side with undue restraint.
As should be apparent from Figs. 2 and 3, particularly Fig. 3, with the bag freely superimposed upon the anchoring sheet 10 except for the longitudinal zone of afllxation along the axis of the bag, the occupant may turn from side to side without the affect of being pinned or fastened to the anchoring sheet. At the same time, with the anchoring sheet 10 securely engaging the mattress 16, the occupant is comfortably positioned in a central position upon the mattress obviating all danger of rolling off the bed while asleep. I am well aware that sleeping bags have been heretofore developed for preventing the occupant from accidentally rolling on of the bed but to my knowledge all such devices have resorted to securing means for the sleeping bag of a character placing undesired restrictions upon the movements of the occupant.
It should be apparent from the foregoing description that I have provided a simple and inexpensive sleeping bag construction which is adequately positioned at all times yet does not place objectionable limitations upon the movement of the occupant.
Having described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent is:
1. A sleeping bag of the character described comprising an anchoring sheet, means attached to said sheet for securely attaching the same in position, a bag superimposed upon said sheet having an adjustable opening for receiving an occupant, said bag being anchored to said sheet centrally along its longitudinal axis, said bag being otherwise freely disposed upon said anchoring sheet.
2. A sleeping bag of the type described comprising an anchoring sheet, means attached to said sheet for securely attaching the same in position, a bag superimposed upon said sheet 3 m mmm a otherwiaetroelydilpolod sheet.
