Application December is, 1946, Serial No. 716,471

3 Claims. (01. 215-11) This invention relates to an improved nursing bottle, and an important object of the invention is to provide a bottle of this kind which is so constructed as to insure maintenance of a full nipple without adjusting the position of the bottle during feeding, thereby aiding in the. prevention of colic or distress caused by sucking air.

Other objects are to provide a nursing bottle to which a nipple may be applied with a minimum danger of the bottle slipping laterally, which may be readily and safely handled and compactly stored without danger of breakage.

Another object is to provide a nursing bottle which will not roll from proper position during feeding, and one in which means is provided to facilitate estimation of the amount of milk or other liquid remaining in or nursed from the bottle at any time. s

The exact nature of the present invention, as well as other objects and features thereof, will become apparent from the following description when considered in connection with the. accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure l is a side elevational view of a nursing bottle constructed in accordance with the present invention.

Figure 2 is a front elevational view thereof.

Figure 3 is a bottom plan view of the same.

Figure 4 is a central longitudinal sectional view of the nursing bottle as positioned in use.

Referring in detail to the drawing, the present nursing bottle comprises a hollow vertically elongated body 5 which is preferably made of glass and of general hexagonal form in horizontal section, but with one side 6 somewhat wider than the remaining sides. The body of the bottle is provided in the top and adjacent the wider side 6 with a circular opening 'I which is inclined toward the wider side 6- and encircled by an outwardly extended annular flange or lip 8 adapted to have the base of a nipple snapped thereover as indicated by dotted lines in Figure 4. The body 5 preferably has a slightly reduced circular base 9, and the minor lower portion III of said.

Thus, a plurality of the bottles may be compactly stored without danger of tipping over or causing breakage of the bottle at the flange 8. Due to the tapering form of the upper portion l I, the bottle may be readily and safely handled. It

will also be noted that when the nipple is applied to the flange or lip 8, it may be initially engaged with the uppermost portion of said flange or lip so that a downward pressure is exerted on the bottle in a substantially vertical plane, thereby avoiding lateral slippage of the bottle.

In addition, the bottle is placed on the upper portion of the wider side 6 as shown in Figure 4 when the bottle'is in use, thereby eliminating any danger of the bottle rolling laterally. In this connection, it is noted that the inner surface H of the wider side 6 is parallel with the vertical axis of the bottle, while the outer surface of said side 6 converges upwardly toward said axis at the upper portion ll of the body. Thus, when the bottle is placed in use as in Figure 4, resting upon the upper portion of the side 6, the inner surface E2 of the side 6 is inclined toward the nipple, thereby insuring maintenance of a full nipple at all times during feeding without necessitating adjustment of the bottle. It will be noted that the surface I! merges with the-outer side of the wall of opening 1 so that. complete emptying of the bottle is insured when the bottle is disposed to rest on the upper portion of the wider side 6 during the act of nursing.

Graduated lines It are provided on the bottom of the bottle parallel with the lower portion of the side 6, and other graduated lines H are provided on sides of the bottle laterally of the wider side 6. The lines ll are parallel with the outer surface of the wider side 6 at the upper portion of the latter, and are thereby parallel with the level of the milk or other liquid within the bottle when the latter is in use as shown in Figure 4. Thus, the lines I will successively coincide with the surface line of the liquid during the act of feeding, and will thereby facilitate estimation of the amount of liquid remaining in or nursed from the bottle. The graduated lines It serve the same purpose as the lines I 4.

The usual graduated horizontal lines l6 may be provided on another side of the bottle parallel to the base line of the latter, to indicate measurement when the bottle is at rest upon the bottom thereof.

' Due to the position of the flange or lip 8, the baby cannot see the bottle during feeding, thus preventing eye strain. Also, the weight of the bottle is received by the supporting surface and is not imposed on the baby's lips and gums.

From the foregoing description, it is believed that the construction, manner of use and advantages of the present invention will be readily understood and appreciated by those skilled in the art. Minor changes are contemplated, such as fall within the scope of the invention as claimed.

What I claim is: a l. A nursing bottle comprising a hollow verti- 4 3. The device defined in claim 1, wherein spaced graduated lines are provided on the body at one side of said wider side thereof and parallel with the outer surface of the wider side or said upper cally elongated body of general hexagonal form 5 portion.

in cross-section substantially from top to bottom, one side of said body being wider than the remaining sides thereof, the minor lower portion of said body being of uniform external size and shape in horizontal section, the major upper portion of said body tapering upwardly, said body being provided in the top at the wider side with an opening inclined toward said wider side and being provided about said opening with an annular lip wholly positioned inwardly or the vertical 15 plane of the wider side of said lower portion, said wider side having a flat inner surface extending from the bottom of the body to the outer side of said opening parallel with the vertical axis or the body so as to incline toward said opening when the body is disposed with the wider side of said upper portion resting on the horizontal surface.

2. The device'deflned in claim 1, wherein spaced graduated lines are provided on the bottom of the body parallel with the wider side of said lower portion.
