1 Claim.

The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in nursing bottles and has for its primary object to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a device of this character embodying a novel construction and arrangement whereby the milk may be kept at the desired temperature for feeding for a considerable length of time.

Another very important object of the invention is to provide a nursing bottle embodying novel means whereby the quantity and temperature of the milk may be readily ascertained.

Still another very important object of the invention is to provide a nursing bottle of the aforementioned character which isprovided with novel means for controlling the discharge of the milk into the nipple. a

Other objects of the invention are to provide a nursing bottle of the character described which will be comparatively simple in construction, strong, durable, sanitary, compact,- light in weight, attractive in appearance and which may be manufactured at low cost.

All of the foregoing and still further objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from a study of the following specification, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein like characters of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and wherein:

Figure 1 is a view in front elevation of a nursing bottle constructed in'accordance with the present invention.

Figure 2 is a view in vertical section through I the invention, taken substantially on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1.

Figure 3 is a horizontal sectional view, taken substantially on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Figure 4 is a detail view in perspective of the rotatably adjustable cap.

Figure 5 is a detail view in perspective of the closure on which the cap shown in Fig. 4 is mounted.

Figure 6 is a view inside elevation with a portion broken away in vertical section substantially brought into communication with the openings Figure 8 is a detail view in top plan of the Referring now to the drawings in detail it will be seen that the embodiment of the invention which has been illustrated comprises a bottle I of suitable material, preferably pyrex which is enclosed in a spaced heat insulating 'casing 2. The bottle I includes a neck 3 projecting through an opening which is provided therefor in the top of the casing 2. On one side of the bottle I and communicating therewith for receiving milk therefrom is'a graduated gauge tube 4 the upper m end of which is closed by a removable plug 5. Immediately adjacent the gauge 4 on the bottle I 'is a thermometer ii. The casingi. is provided with an elongated opening exposing the gauge 4 and the thermometer 6. On the upper portion of the casing 2 is a threaded ring I for receiving a removable cap ii. The casing 2 and the cap 8 may be of any desired color.

Removably mounted on the neck 3 of the bottle I is a stationary closure 9 having openings II] 0 therein. Projecting from the closure 9 are lugs or the like II. Mounted for rotary adjustment on the closure 9 'is a removable cap I2 having openings I3 therein which are adapted to be 5 I 0. Lugs or the like project from the cap I2.

The reference numeral I5 designates a nipple which is adapted to be removably mounted on the cap I2. Projecting from the open end of the nipple I5' are integral tabs I 6 and I1. The 30 tabs I6 and I! 'are to facilitate mounting the nipple I5 on the cap I2. When mounted on the cap I2, the nipple I5 is adapted to be enclosed in the cap 8.

It will thus be; seen that a nursing bottle has 35 been provided whereby the milk, after being 9 wherein the openings 13 are out of communi- 45 cation with the openings III, as shown in Fig. 6 of the drawings, the milk will be prevented from leaving the bottle I and-entering the nipple l5, thus preventing the escape of said milk regard- Of course,

less of the position of the device. when it is desired to permit the milk to enter the nipple IS the cap I2 is adjusted to bring the openings I3 into communication with the openings III. This construction and arrangement also permits the flow of the milk to be regulated as 66 desired. By grasping the tab I. with one hand and the tab H with the other the open end of the nipple I! may be readily stretched and slipped over the cap l2. reference numeral i8 designates a brush with which the tubular gauge 4 may be readily cleaned by removing the plug 8.

It is believed that the many advantages of a nursing bottle constructed in accordance with the present invention will be readily understood and although a preferred embodiment of the device is as illustrated and described, it is to be understood that changes in the details of construction and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to which will fall within the scope of the invention as claimed.

In Fig. 10 oi the drawings the .What is claimed is:-

A device of the class described comprising a bottle for the reception of milk, said bottle including a, neck, a stationary closure mounted on said neck and having openings therein, said closure further including a plurality of lugs projecting radially from its inner edge, a cap mounted for rotary adjustment on the closureand having openings therein adapted to be brought into communication with the first named openings, said cap including a plurality of lugs projecting radially from its inner edge adJacent the firstnamed lugs, and a nipple removably mounted on the cap.
