NW0 5, W35 J. a. BUSSING ET AL CHILD S DIAPER Filed June 26, 1935 WITNESS ATTORNEY Patented Nov. 5, 1935 CHILDS DIAPER James G. Bussing and William A. Peek, Carthage, N. Y.

Application June 26, 1935, Serial No. 28,514

5 Claims.

The invention relates to a diaper construction and more especially to a paper diaper for infants use.

The primary object of the invention is the prol vision of a diaper of this character, wherein the same is formed entirely of paper stock and cellulose wadding so that in the use it will not cause discomfort to a wearer as the character of the material employed and the assembly of the same 10 eliminates irritation, skin burning or infections, the diaper having elastic qualities so that it will not bind and this enables snug fitting to a wearer with resultant free blood circulation and when subjected to body wastes will not shrink or disintegrate and is thoroughly sanitary.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a diaper of this character, wherein the same can be readily and conveniently destroyed after use thereof without liability of stoppage of 20 soil pipes as the material will quickly disintegrate into small portions by reason of the particular disposition of short lengths of runs of stitches of thread and the staggered arrangement, of such stitches, these when wearing the diaper will give strength thereto so as to avoid separation of its component materials and the nature of the material affording maximum moisture resistance as well as permitting the application of the diaper to a wearer and also eliminating discomfort in 30 the wearing thereof with the result that the diaper pointed out in the claims hereunto appended.

In the accompanying drawing: Figure 1 is a plan view of a diaper constructed 50 in accordance with the invention.

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view thereof.

Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 1 lookingv toward the other side of the diaper and por-. tions thereof being broken away. 55 Similar reference characters indicate correpreferred embodiment of the invention and sponding parts throughout the several views in the drawing.

Referring to the drawing in detail, A designates generally a diaper constructed in accordance with the invention and includes superimposed 5 plies of water resisting sheet material 5 of relatively tough paper but flexible texture, these being the outside cover for the diaper while overlying the said sheets is a layer of absorbent wadding 6 of cellulose wood fiber which has super- 10 imposed thereon a plurality of plies of soft absorbent paper sheets I, commonly known as paper tissue of soft velvet texture, the latter constituting the inner covering of the said diaper.

These materials in their assembled or disposed relation to each other are connected together by short runs of stitches 8 of thread, these being disposed in staggered relation to each other in rows arranged close to a pair of opposite edges and at an intermediate point as at 9 and iii, respectively. The stitches 8 of the respective rows are disposed with relation to each other to overlap one another in the respective rows and such rows are extended transversely of the wearing position of the diaper so that in the application thereof to a wearer the materials can be conveniently pulled upon for the proper fitting of the diaper to the wearer without liability of tearing or separating the materials in the assembled make-up thereof as hereinbefore described.

The diaper made from the paper stock and cellulose wadding afiords an absolutely sanitary construction, completely and readily disintegrated when thrown into a flush toilet and is possessed of the requisite absorbent qualities as well as being readily applicable and when worn will be entirely devoid of discomfort or any resultant skin burning, irritation or infection and also will positively retain body wastes. The diaper has the requisite elastic quality so that it will not bind if fastened too snugly and permits free blood circulation and when discarded will readily flush away without liability of soil pipe stoppage.

It is, of course, understood that the diaper in the construction thereof canrbe made of any required size to suit the needs of a wearer and is readily destructible after use thereof.

The short runs or lengths of stitches 8 and their irregular disposition with respect to each other in the respective row lay-out of the same assures on disintegration of the materials of the latter separation into extremely small areas or pieces and thus avoiding the possibility of solidifying into bulk of these' materials which would result in the clogging of waste or soil pipes when the diaper is thrown into a toilet or the like for destruction.

Diagonally disposed at the corners of the diaper A are stitches II, these being extended inwardly for a distance and the purpose of the corner stitching is to avoid the breaking loose of the diaper when the same is pinned about the waist of a user and thus withstanding the attachment of the pins therewith on the wearing of the said diaper.

What is claimed is:

1. An article of manufacture of the character described comprising a pad assembly of an outer layer of water-resisting fibrous material, an inner layer of soft fibrous tissue, a layer of cellulose waclding between the fibrous material and tissue, and stitches across two opposite ends of said pad assembly, the threads of which are interrupted at numerous intervals.

2. An article of manufacture of the character described comprising a pad assembly of an outer layer of water-resisting fibrous material, an inner layer of soft fibrous tissue, a layer of cellulose wadding between the fibrous material and tissue, and overlapping stitches across two opposite ends of said pad assembly, the threads of which are interrupted at numerous intervals.

3. An article of manufacture of the character described comprising a\ ad assembly of an outer layer of fibrous materi l, an inner layer of soft fibrous tissue, a layer 'of cellulose wadding between the fibrous material and tissue, and overlapping stitches across two opposite ends of said pad assembly, the threads of which are interrupted at numerous intervals.

4. An article of manufacture of the character described comprising a pad assembly of an outer layer of water-resisting fibrous material, an inner layer of soft fibrous tissue, and a layer of cellulose wadding between the fibrous material and tissue, two opposite ends of the pad assembly being attached together with a row of tacking elements closely arranged so that the pad assembly may be easily disintegrated in a sewerage line.

5. An article of manufacture of the character described comprising a pad assembly of an outer layer of fibrous material, an inner layer of soft o arranged so that the pad assembly may be eas- 25 ily disintegrated in a sewerage line.
