  • Publication number: 20220339076
    Abstract: A feeding bottle (100) including a reservoir (105) for receiving a liquid for feeding, a teat (115) for providing the liquid from the reservoir (105), a regulator (120) disposed between the reservoir (105) and the teat (115), the regulator (120) shaped to engage the teat (115), and a collar (110) configured to retain the teat (115) to the reservoir (105), wherein the collar (110) is adjustably movable relative to the reservoir (105), wherein movement of the collar (110) relative to the reservoir (105) moves the teat (115) relative to the regulator (120) which provides adjustable flow of liquid from the reservoir (105) through the regulator (120) to the teat (115).

  • Publication number: 20050258125
    Abstract: A venting closure for a threaded neck container (12) filled with a fluid such as milk comprising a first threaded cap (11) having at least one opening (14,15) in an upper region and a second snap cap (13a) having a outlet nozzle (13b) in the form of a teat which is adapted to fit over the first cap, and the first cap (11) is adapted to fit over the opening in a bottle (12). When the second cap is located over the first cap, a channel or flow path (18) extends from the upper region of the first cap (11) between the first cap and the second cap to permit a flow of air between the first and second caps. The air fills the void left in the bottle as a result of liquid leaving trough the nozzle. The flow path (18) extends from the hole (15) around the periphery to a vertical groove (19) which extends three quarters down the outer side surface of the first cap (11). A baby suckling or drinking on the teat (13b) does not ingest air along with the milk and hence reduces the problem of colic.

  • Publication number: 20050006415
    Abstract: A closure system for a container comprising a base cap (11) located over a hole in the container and having at least one aperture (17) for passage of fluid therethrough, an overcap (12) locatable over the base cap, having an opening to allow passage of fluid or milk therethrough and moveable between an open position where the fluid can pass through the opening and a closed position where the fluid is substantially prevented from passage through the opening, a nozzle or teat (13) which is coupled to the overcap (12) and having an outlet (41) for passage of fluid therethrough and a passage (30) in the form of a groove that extends from the interior of the overcap (12) to a region above the overcap (12).
