Sept. 20, 1938. B. c. MANN INFANTS SLEEPING GARMENT Filed July 9, 1937 Patented Sept. 20, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,130,771 INFANTS SLEEPING GARMENT v Blanche C. Mann, Evanston, Ill. Application July 9, 1937, Serial No. 152,793

2 Claims.

This invention relates to an infants garment, and the object of the invention is to provide a garment which will in effect be a combination of night-dress and sleeping bag. That is to say, the garment fits the body of the child and is preferably provided with sleeves, so that there is no danger of the child being choked or smothered, as has sometimes happened with sleeping bags, while the skirt of the garment is wide and closed at the bottom and sides so that the child may move its legs as freely as in a sleep-. ing bag. The garment can be opened down the front which makes the handling of the child easy.

In the accompanying drawing:

Fig. 1 is a front view of the garment with parts of the fabric broken away; and

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary back view of the neck.

Referring to the drawing, the garment com; prises a waist portion I which fits, more or less, the trunk of the child, and is provided with a neck opening 2, and preferably with sleeves 3, 3.

From the neck opening extends downward a front opening 4 provided with suitable closure means, preferably a zipper closure 5. The front opening preferably extends for substantially the length of the waist portion of the garment, and somewhat beyond this into the bagor skirt portion of the garment, so that the lower part of the child's body may be lifted from the garment without releasing the arms. I

The garment also comprises a skirt portion 6 which is considerably wider than the waist portion and is closed at the sides and bottom as shown at 1. The garment widens abruptly from the waist on lines which, curving from the waist, are, as they approach the sides of the bag, almost at right angles to the line of the front opening so that the child has perfect freedom in the movement of its legswhile, at the same time, the

40 garment fits more or less closely to the childs trunk. To insure this freedom the skirt or bag sleeping is preferably made wider than the width of the garment between the ends of the wrist portions of the sleeves. v

The neck portion of the garment is preferably provided with a casing 8 for a gathering tape or ribbon 9 which may be tied in the back as shown in Fig. 2. The sleeves may also be formed with casings ID for gathering tapes I I.

I claim:

1. An infants sleeping garment comprising: a 10 waist portion adapted to fit the trunk of a child provided with sleeves and formed with a neck opening; and a bag portion closed at the sides and bottom and substantially wider than the waist portion to allow the child freedom in movement of the legs; said garment being formed with a front opening extending downwardly from the neck opening lengthwise of the waist and for a substantial distance into the bag portion and provided with closure means; the garment being widened abruptly below the waist on lines which, extending from the waist, are, as they approach the sides of the bag almost at right angles to the line of the front opening.

2. An infants sleeping garment comprising: a 5 waist portion adapted to fit the trunk of a child provided with sleeves and formed with a neck opening; and a bag portion closed at the sides and bottom and wider than .the width of the garment between the ends of the wrist portions of the sleeves to allow the child freedom in movement of the legs; said garment being formed with a front opening extending downwardly from the neck opening lengthwise of the waist and for a substantial distance into the bag portion and 5 provided with closure means; the garment being widened abruptly below the waist on lines which, curving from the waist, are, as they'aproach the sides of the bag almost at right angles to the line of the front opening. 40
