din/ a LEONARD KuplscH I CLEANING PAD FOR INFANT'S CARE This is a continuation in part of my application ,Ser. No. 49,248 filed June 24, 1970 and now abandoned.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION to apply a lotion to the infants skin for cleansing and also for preventing or reducing skin infection or irritation. The lotion is poured from a container onto a surface of a piece of cotton batting and the lotion carrying batting is then used for cleaning the infant and for applying the lotion. This is awkward and rather difficult. A so-called surgical wiping pad is disclosed by U.S. Pat. No. 2,727,5 15, but the pad is not impregnated with a lotion or the like. U.S. Pat. Nos. 2,432,091 and 3,177,055 show scrubbing or scouring pads impregnated with soap and a binder; hence such pads could not be used as a lotion applying for infants or others.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION It is an object of this invention to provide a lotion-applying pad in order to facilitate the application of lotion especially to infants and also to others, especially non-ambulatory persons.
Another object is to provide a liquidproof package of a plurality of the lotion-applying pads.
A feature of the invention is the impregnation of a pad of cotton batting with sufficient lotion to saturate or nearly saturate the pad without self-dripping from the pad, the surface of the pad opposite the lotion applying surface being liquidproof.
Another feature of the invention is the arrangement of the pads in the package so that the waterproof surface of one pad covers the lotion applying surface of adjacent pad in the package.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING The above stated objects, features, and advantages of my invention will be apparent from the following description considered in connection with the accompanying illustrative drawings in which: I
F IG. 1 is a perspective view of a lotion-impregnated pad according to the invention;
FIG. 2 is an end view of the pad;
FIG. 3 is a side view of the pad;
FIG. 4 is a sectional view of a package of a plurality of the ads; p FIG. 5 is a plan view of a pad, showing another form of the invention; and
FIG. 6 is a sectional view on the line 6-6 of FIG. 5.
DESCRIPTION OF A PREFERRED EMBODIMENT pad.
The surface 12 of the pad opposite the lotion-applying surface 14 is rendered liquidproof. For this purpose a thin film of waterproof plastic, is applied to andcovers surface 12, being adhesively secured thereto. Alternatively, a plastic in liquid form may be sprayed on surface 12 and allowed to dry.
The lotion can be of any suitable type, for example, Johnsons baby lotion, the active ingredients of which are hexachlorophene and lanolin or .Iohnsons baby oil which comprises mineral oil and lanolin, sold by Johnson & Johnson,
New Brunswick, New Jersey.
FIG. 4 shows a package 6 containing a plurality of pads 10 arranged in a container 16 so that the liquid proof surface 12 of each surface abuts the lotion-applying surface 14 of the adjacent pad in the container. The container 16 may be made of paper and having its inner surface rendered waterproof or said container may be a wrapper of waterproof plastic, for example a shrinkable thermoplastic film which may be heat shrunk around the pads and over the pads at the opposite ends of the package.
In the form of the invention illustrated by FIGS. 5 and 6, the pad 20 is substantially the same as pad 10 except that the thin plastic film 22 which is adhesively secured to the pad surface 24 opposite the lotion-applying surface 26 has portions 28 which extend beyond the cotton batting edges 30 and except that a thin plastic film 32 covers the lotion-applying surface of the pad and has edge portions 34 which are releasably secured to edge portions 28 of film 22. The releasable securement of film edge portions 28, 34 to each other is efiected by crimping said portions together by a crimping roller. The crimping is indicated at 36 in FIG. 5. Instead of crimping two edge portions of films 22 and 32 to each, said films may be crimped at one, three, or four edge portions which extend beyond the edges of the pad.
It will be understood that the films 22 and 32 prevent the escape of lotion or oil from the pad and that by crimping film 32 to film 22, film 32 can be readily removed from the pad when the pad is to be used.
In view of the above, it may be readily appreciated that the pads of this invention are well adapted to be of great help to mothers and others in caring for infants especially at the times of diaper changes. In this connection it will be understood that the mother or nurse can lift the babys feet with one hand and with the other hand can readily clean the baby and apply the lotion with the pad having the lotion therein in accordance with my invention.
While I have shown and described the preferred embodiment of the invention, it will be understood that the invention may be embodied otherwise than as herein specifically illustrated and described, and that certain changes in the forms and arrangement of parts and in the specific manner of prac-.
l. A lotion-applying pad comprising a fiat layer of cotton batting impregnated with the lotion disposed within said layer between the opposite major surfaces of the layer, a liquidproof backing being bonded to one of said major surfaces of said layer of cotton batting, said backing having non-adhesive marginal edge portions extending laterally beyond said flat layer of cotton batting, and a covering of liquidproof material being removably secured over the other of said major surfaces of said layer, said removable covering having marginal edge portions removably crimped to said marginal edge portions of said backing, said other surface being the lotion-applying surface of the pad.
