This invention relates to an infants garment; more particularly to a combination sleeping garment, blanket and robe.A f

It is an object of my invention tvo-provide an 5 infants garment in which a protectiveA covering is'provided, allowing for freedom o f movement during the time the infant is lying vin a crib or carriage, serving in the nature of a garment and blanket, yet including features which will permit accessibility to the infant for purposes of changing its undergarments.

It is further contemplated by my invention to provide an infants garment inthe nature of a robe; including parts thereof. which fully cover the infants body and including therewith features which permit accessibility to the infants body to facilitate'redressing the infant, asto its undergarments. It is furthercontemplated by my invention to providea combined infant's garment and blanket which guards against the infant becoming uncovered or exposed, while in its crib or carriage, which combines the features of freedom of movement for the limbsof the infant with adequate covering,l and which further includes,

as features thereof, accessibility for'redressing the infant. Y

To attain these objects and, such further ob` jects as may appear herein or be hereinafter pointed out, I make reference to the accompanying drawings, forming a p art hereof, in which- Figure 1 is a front plan view of my device; Figure 2 is a back view of the same; l Figure 3 is a perspective view of my device,

worn by the infant and applied in connection;

with a crib;

Figure 4 is a perspective view showing another position of my device; v

Figure 5 is a perspective view of my device -as worn by an infant, .in the form of a robe;

Figure 6 is a back view of the same.

My device, in its general applicability, contemplates an improvement over the construction referred to in the patent to Painter No. 1,079,798. November 25, 1913.

My device comprises a jacket portion I0, the length of which is arranged tocover an infant to approximately its waist, and is'made from blanket fabric. 'I'he jacket comprises a front Il. a back I2, formed withsections for defining the sleeves I3, near the ends whereof there'are located draw-strings or ties I3a, to gather the sleeves near the ends snugly around the-wrists of'the infant.

The back I2 terminates adjacent the s kirt porailixed a flap 24.

tion Il at a distance calculated to be approximately near the small of the back of the infant.

The front portion II terminates into an extended section I5, having laterally directed flaps I6. To each side of the sections I6 there may be aflixed the flaps- I1. The section I5, flaps I6 and the flaps I1 define an arear which is calculated to cover the width of the crib and extend beyond the same for three sides,l to give a substantial tuck-in I8 at the sides and foot of the crib, as will .lo

more clearly appear in Figures 3'and 4.

Y Ihe jacket is provided with neck opening I9 and at the front thereof is formed with a slitted portion or opening 20, extending from 'the neck' opening I9, front II andvintothe sectioni. The length of this opening is calculated to be substantially equivalent to 'the body of an infant, to and including its legs, for' purposes which will appear more clearly. as this description proceeds.

The edges 2I and 22 of the slit may be joined by suitablefastening means. It is preferredby me to provide the edges 2l and 22 with slide fastener elements, mounted upon stringers. to the edges 2| erating slider This is of suiiicient width to act as a protective covering for thecomplementary fastener elements attached to the edges 2| and 22. thereby to protect the infant from direct 30 contact with the metallic elements constituting the slide fastener.

With a construction as provided, to dress-the infant, the slitted portion 20 is opened for its full length. The through the slit and the Jacket disposed in position over the arms and chest ofthe infant. With this accomplished, the flaps I6 may be enveloped around the legs andl back ofthe infant, to provide more or less of a robe, such Yasillustrated in o Figure 5.

'Where it is desired to use the garment. for* sleeping purposes, either for covering the infant in the crib or carriage, the extensions IB andv flaps I1 are spread out and the excess material. 45 covered over the mattress 2l, tucking the flaps-` I1 underneath the mattress at the -sides and foot thereof, to form the tuck-in portions I8, previously mentioned.

It will be observed that jacket I0 forms an effective covering for the chest and back of the infant, leaving' the arms Y free. The extensions I6 and I 'I cover the lower half of the infant, as a blanket would, givingthel limbs benesththe blanket perfect freedom..

throughout the entire` length of the and 22, and including therewith an op- 23. To one of the edges there is 1 infant may then be inserted The 66 in this position, the 60.

. waist line will not come in contact with the iacket. With the infant lying on its back, the usual protective covering, pads, rubber sheeting may be applied in position.

The slitted portion 20, extending to the point 20a, located to correspond to the length of the infant, permits the slit 20 to be opened to reach the infant, to change its under garments. This position' is particularly illustrated in Figure 4. y

Thus while the infant is in its `crib or carriage,

" should the occasion arise to change the infants diapers, it is merely necessary to slide the oper ating member 23 to its lowermost point 20a, giving full access to the infant.

In all other respects, the garment'in accordance with my invention offers full protection or covering for the infant. The limbs have freedom below the waistline as well as above the waistline. A sitting posture may readily be assumed with freedom, while offering security lfrom exposure or falling from the crib or carriage.

The infant may be dressed, as already described, without the need for removing the infant from the jacket or the infant may be lifted bodily, with its covering, wrapping the flaps or extensions i6 and I 1 about the legs of the infant, securely protecting the entire infant and acting as an extended robe. v

It will be understood that the iiaps I1 may be an extension of the sections I6. Preferably, however, the portions I1 are separately connected by 2,215,951 l a seam line Ha. 'This seam line is calculated to i conform to the corner Hb of the mattress and enhances the neatness `oi arrangement .of the lower half of the garment in tion about the mattress.

.In general it will be observed that'I have provided a highly eflicient infants garment, robe and blanket or protective covering for infants.

which provides security of coverage while giving the infant full freedom of movement.

Having thus'descrlbed my invention and illustrated its use, what I claim as new and `desire to secure by Letters Patent is An infants combination garment, having a Jacket portionv and bed cover integral therewith. the jacket Portion having a backand front sewed to each other and a pair of sleeves integral with said front and back, the bed cover being""an cb- N long sheet ofthe same material as the Jacket and integral along. the median portion of its upper edge with the lower edge-of lthe front, said garment having a longitudinal opening extending downwardly from the neck opening of the garment the length of the Jacket and into the bedI cover portion for a length approximating the length of the bodyv of the infant, and a closure for the opening, so that when the opening is closed the garment is employed as a robeand bed cover to retain the infant in position on the bed, the infant being covered from head to foot, and -when the opening is open the infant is retained in position byV the back and sleeves, the

its tucked-in 'posi-Y,

body of the infant being disposed over the cover portion thus permitting the infant substantial freedom of movement and exposure.
