1 15 r H U 4 E 16 p Q42i2 I INVENTOR. WLLIAM KRAMER Patented Sept. 12, 1950 TACLES This inventiomrelates-toqa;hood-;for a bottle, and more particularly toan insulating hood for holding the heat in a baby iiursingflbottle or ,1

be of any soft material such as fabric of cotton or woolfor of plastic,- and the intermediate other receptacles.

An object of the present-finventionis to provide a hood or cover for a bottlepr other rece I which will protect it irom' breakage an will;,-i1isulate it to keep it warmer cold a e. m -s 1 Another object is to'provi e said which is easily applied to and removed from a bottle and which can be held tightly to the bottle by a draw string.

Another object is to provide a hood as afore-' said having an opening for the nipple of a baby bottle.

Still another object is to provide a hood as aforesaid in which the draw string is at the end of the bottle remote from the nipple, so that the baby can nurse without danger of drawing the draw string into its mouth.

Another object is to provide a, hood as aforesaid which may be made of inner and outer layers of fabric or plastic, enclosing a layer or layers of fibreglass or other insulating material.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. l is an elevation of a hood and bottle constructed in accordance with this invention.

Fig. 2 is a horizontal sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is an axial vertical section of a hood constructed in accordance with a modification of this invention, the baby bottle being shown in full.

Fig. 4 is a view similar to the bottom of Fig. 3 with the opening enlarged and the bottle removed.

The invention is shown in the form of a hood for a baby bottle and it will be so described, for

simplicity, it being understood that it may be used for other types of bottles if desired.

The baby bottle It! may be of any type of conventional baby bottle, having a nipple II. The hood l2 has a draw string l3 at its top so that when the bottle is inserted in it, the nipple may be left protruding and the draw string tightened to hold the hood to the bottle so that the bottle will be kept warm while the baby is nursing, and willprotect the bottle from'break age if itis inadvertently dropped and thereby protects the baby from injury.


WillianiKramer, New York, N. Y. i-ii 30,-, i 'v'vj Application January 24, 1948,,Serial No..4,118;:- 1- Claim (01. 159-52) v :T'EMPERATUREBETAINING COVER FOR- BABY-'BOTTLES-AND.

OTHER REGEP- 1 p The hood 1 2 is forin ed of a innerenvelopejlt, an outer envelopev 1 .and an intermediate envelope l6. 1.The inner and outer envelopes may thermocite, or the like; depending upon the dee.

" gree -of insulation desired; The envelopes are formed and sewn; together to. the shape. shown in Fig. 1. I: r

It is contemplated that-enough layers: of fibreglass will be employed to maintain the bottle warm for a period of four or five hours. If it is desired to increase this period, the quantity of fibreglass can be increased.

The hood also protects the bottle from vermin and maintains it in a sanitary condition. The hood can be washed, when necessary. It provides for the very slow cooling of the milk over a long period so that if the milk is heated sufficiently, it may cool, without curdling, to the proper temperature for nursing at the time desired.

Some of the modern types of baby bottles, such as those known as Evenfio and Vitaflow bottles, have the nipples projecting directly from a relatively flat surface, which makes it necessary to employ a hood which will not surround the nipple and prevent nursing. Such a bottle I0 is shown in Fig. 3. Its nipple H projects through a plastic cap l1. If the draw string arrangement of Fig. 1 were employed around the nipple ll it would interfere with the babys I I3 at the bottom. The hood has a member [8 at its top formed of two discs of cloth l9 sewn together at their edges around a circular hole 20. The nipple H sticks through this hole 20 which is of considerably larger diameter than the nipple but smaller diameter than the cap l1. Thus the only projection of the hood above the cap I! is the two layers of cloth, which are of negligible thickness. The outer edges of the discs I9 lie close to the sides of the bottle. The layer or layers of fibreglass or the like It fit between the discs l9, and the layers It and I5 are at the inner side and outer side respectively of the inner disc l9 and outer disc Hi.

The bottom of the hood has a draw string opening 2! wide enough to admit the bottle. It may be contracted by pulling the draw string 3 to completely or substantially completely cover the bottom of the bottle. It is formed by binding the bottom edges of the layers l4, l5 and I 6' loosely with a strip of tape 22,. leaving a channel 23 for the draw string '13; i

If desired, the discs l9, which are of negligible insulating value, may be made of waterproof fabric so that they will not absorb milk and saliva during nursing. 1

It is to be understood that this heat insulating protective covering may be used on receptacles of all shapes and sizes.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claim. c

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:

A hood for use with a baby bottle having a nipple, comprising an insulated tubular casing having open top and bottom ends for enclosing 25 1,687,004

the bottle from a point slightly below the top thereof to the bottom thereof, a draw string at the open bottom of said tubular casingfor closing the open bottom of said tubular casing about the bottom of the bottle, superimposed discs of waterproof material formed with concentric aligned openings extended across the top of. the bottle with the nipple extending through said aligned openin s, said discs having their peripheral edges bent downward along the sides of. the top portion of the bottle and stitched to the material of said tubular casing about the ope top. end thereof, said discs having the edge portions thereof surrounding the concentric openings bent inward and outward between the adjacent: faces of said discs, and a line of stitches passed through said discs and said edge portions securing said edge portions in position between the adjacent faces of said discs.
