Johnson, Cleveland Heights, Ohio Application August 19, 1937, Serial No. 159,955 (Cl. 248-107) 4 Claims. This invention relates to bottle holders and is especially useful with bottle holders of the self feeding type for infants. One object of this invention is to provide an :1 improved bottle holder. Another object is to provide a bottle holder which is readily adjust able. A‘ further object is to provide a bottle holder adapted for holding bottles of various sizes or shapes. Another object of this invention is to ll) provide a self feeding infant’s bottle holder. An other object is to provide a bottle holder which can hold-the bottle out of the way after it has served its ‘purpose. Yet a further object is to provide a bottle holder which will always keep the _. in nipple full of milk so that the baby will not suck air. Other objects and advantages of this inven tion will appear from the following description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing. ‘ i ‘ I attain the foregoing objects and others inci dental thereto by‘forming a self feeding bottle holder of a pair of bent wire members one of which has a supporting loop portion and the other of which has a bottle-neck holding portion. In the drawing Figure l is a side- elevation of a self feeding bottle holder incorporating features ing inwardly from the arms of‘the bent wire, however, it is equally feasible to have them ex tending outwardly although the former mode of construction is preferred. In Figure 5 a portion of the neck supporting 01 loop member is shown, having side arms 23 and 24 which are ‘substantially straight and which do not have the distinct loop construction as ob~ served in Figure 2, at 25 and 26. The loop I2 is placed on the bed under the head of the infant 10 and the side arms with their end convolutions l3 and I‘! rest on the bed to place the bottle holder in a self feeding position. I The other one of the pair of bent wire mem berscomprises the bottle holding member, hav 15 ing the bottle neck engaging loop portion I3 which is preferably a double loop as shown or may be of the single loop type. This member is flex ible and contains the bottle neck engaging portion 21 which is arranged to yieldably engage with a small neck bottle or the large open neck type of bottle. It will be readily appreciated that bottles having intermediate sizes will also be easily held in de?nite position. The bottle neck engaging portion continues into the bottle supporting arms 25 29 and 3|] extending from. the loop. These arms are bent in a downwardly extending direction of this invention. Figure 2 is a plan view of the same. Figure 3 is a detail view on the line 3-3 of Figure 1. Figure 4 is a detail view of the hear 30 ing members. Figure 5 illustrates a variation in having the downwardly extending portions 3| and 32 respectively each terminating in a convolution holder including features of ' this invention is same pitch so that convolutions 33 and 34 will readily nest within convolutions I6 and IT as a male and female spiral in the manner of comple shape of the neck engaging loop. Considering the various ?gures of the drawing in greater detail, a self feeding infant’s bottle shown in side elevation in Figure l. The bottle holder comprises a pair of bent wire members Ill and II, the former of which has a base loop por tion l2 and the latter of which has a bottle neck engaging portion I3. The base member may partake of various shapes each of which has the base or supporting loop, and a pair of arms l4 and I5 extending therefrom in the same general direction. The arms are formed at one end into as at 33 and 34. , The convolutions are preferably wound in a decreasing spiral form, the spirals having the mentary screw threads. Although it is prefer able to make these convolutions in a spiral form, they of course, may be formed differently if another con?guration is desired. The infant’s milk bottle may be rested on the arms 29 and .30 with the neck portion en gaged by the loop 21 and the loop 12 under the baby’s head, then by moving the levers l8 and 19 a pair of axially aligned convolutions‘ l6 and I1 having extending end portions l8 and I9 con in a counter-clockwise direction the radii of the stituting one or more levers which operate upon movement in such a manner as to increase the tional engagement between the convolutions is decreased. The bottle holding member may be readily adjusted to proper self feeding position radii of the convolutions in Figure 2. These levers are shown as having oppositely extending portions 20 and 2| which may be secured to gether as by welding at point 22. If desired, one of these levers may be dispensed with and the releasing operation effected by means of a single lever. The convolutions have been shown as extend outer convolutions are increased so that the fric- . , at which time the levers are released and the frictional engagement is resumed. It will be understood that if the convolutions l6 and H extend outwardly the convolutions on the bottle holding member would then preferably extend inwardly, instead of outwardly as shown. The holder is so constructed that the bottle 55 2 2,126,639 while in use for feeding is always in position so that the nipple is full of milk. The baby will not suck air. Furthermore, the baby can rest oc casionally without affecting the position of the bottle and without having to hold it. After the bottle is empty the loop can be swung around so that the bottle will be held upright out of the way. Although this invention is described in con 10 nection with its adaptation to children’s milk bottle holders, it has other ?elds of use such as for holding commercial dispensers for liquids or powders, etc. It is understood of course that the thickness or strength of the metal parts may be formed into a pair of axially aligned inwardly extending convolutions and at least one of said convolutions having an inwardly extending end portion constituting a lever operating upon move ment to change the radii of one of the convolu tions; the other of said wires being bent inter mediate its ends to form a bottle neck engaging loop and being provided with bottle supporting arms extending from said loop and having out wardly extending convolutions at their extremi 10 ties in nested relation to and frictionally engaged by the ?rst mentioned convolutions, said last mentioned convolutions being released from fric varied. Variations coming Within the true spirit tional engagement by the ?rst convolutions upon movement of said lever in one direction. 15 and scope of this invention are covered by the of bent wire members; one of said wire mem 15 increased or decreased and the overall size also appended claims. - - What I claim is: 20 1. A bottle holder comprising a pair of bent wire members; one of said members consisting of a single length of wire bent intermediate its ends to form a supporting loop having a pair of arms extending therefrom in the same general direc 25 tion, the wire at the ends of said arms being formed into a pair of axially aligned convolutions and having extending end portions constituting levers operating upon movement to change the radii of said convolutions; the other of said wires 30 bent intermediate its ends to form a bottle-neck engaging loop and having convolutions at their extremities in nested'relation to and frictionally engaged by the ?rst mentioned convolutions, said last mentioned convolutions being released from 35 frictional engagement by the ?rst convolutions upon movement of said lever in one direction. 2. A bottle holder comprising a pair of bent wire members; one of said members consisting of a single length of wire bent intermediate its ends to form a supporting loop having a pair of arms extending therefrom in the same general direc— tion, the wire at the ends of said arms being 3. An infant’s bottle holder comprising a pair bers having a supporting loop, the other of said wire members having an adjustable bottle hold ing loop adapted to releasably hold large and 20 small mouth bottles, and means on each of said members arranged to hold the said members in adjusted position, said last named means includ ing a plurality of nested spiral wire convolutions, some of said convolutions having upwardly pro 25 jecting supporting members terminating in downwardly and forwardly extending bottle hold ing arms. 4. An infant’s bottle holder comprising a pair of bent wire members, one of said wire members 30 having a base forming loop, the other of said wire members having a bottle holding loop, and means on each of said members arranged to hold the said members in an adjusted position, said last named means including a plurality of nested 35 spiral wire convolutions one inner convolution having an upwardly projecting supporting mem ber and having downwardly and forwardly bottle holding arms extending therefrom toward said base loop. 40 EARL V.
