The presentinvention relates to bedding for
infants and has particular reference to improve
ments in devices adapted to maintain infants
comfortably and securely tucked up in bed.
It is the general object of my invention to pro
vide simple, inexpensive and convenient devices
which, while designed to allow the infant full
freedom of all movements necessary for comfort
and exercise, is capable of restraining such move

the infant comfortably in positions controlled by
the above described anchoring means, light and
thin material may be used in the construction
thereof, and any preferred bed cover should be
added to suit temperature conditions. But as
such bed covers form no part of my invention,
they are not illustrated in the drawing. Prefer
ably, the opening along the front of the sleeping
bag should extend far enough down to permit

which might even result in injury to the infant.
To this end, my invention resides in the com

ferred form of the invention is illustrated in the
appended drawing, of which:
Fig. 1 is a plan view of an infant’s crib, in
which is embodied the features of my invention;

As stated, the device of my invention is de
signed to offer the infant freedom of all necessary
movements. To this end, the loop formed by
combining the bands 6, 1 should be long enough
to permit the infant to roll over on either side or
even turn on its stomach.
It is important to note in this connection that
