Abstract: A bottle nipple device featuring a generally circular base having a top surface, a side edge, and a bottom surface; and a thumb-shaped nipple extending upwardly from the top surface of the base, the thumb-shaped nipple is generally hollow and has a top end, wherein a slot is disposed in the top end. The base is adapted to be sandwiched between a top end of a standard bottle a standard bottle cap, the standard bottle cap has a center hole that allows the nipple to protrude outwardly away from the bottle, the slot is fluidly connected to the bottom surface of the base allowing liquid to flow through the base and out of the slot.
Abstract: The invention relates to a teat for feeding bottles, including a receiving head, produced from a dimensionally stable material, and a rubber-elastic suction element. An entry channel leads to the bottle interior and channels lead from there to the outer surface of the receiving head. The suction element, in an initial position, elastically and sealingly rests on at least one section of an outer surface of the receiving head. Milk ducts are located in the contact area between the suction element and the receiving head and communicate with the channels of the receiving head which lead towards the outlet channel in the mouthpiece so that, when a vacuum is produced in the mouthpiece, milk can flow from the feeding bottle through the milk ducts to the outlet channel, the suction element being returnable to its initial position and the flow of milk being interrupted when there is no vacuum.
Abstract: A pacifier assembly having a pivotally mounted cover on a shield assembly is disclosed. The assembly allows convenient protection for the nipple by being selectably moved between an open and closed position. In one embodiment, two nipples are provided on opposite sides of the shield assembly. The cover can be positioned to protect one nipple while exposing the other. Once the assembly is dropped to the floor and the sanitary condition of the exposed nipple is compromised, the cover can be moved to cover the dirtied nipple and expose the unused nipple. In another embodiment, the dual nipple pacifier includes two covers. Thus, the covers can protect both nipples simultaneously for transporting the assembly in a sanitary manner. One nipple can be exposed by pivoting one of the covers. Preferably, the covers nest within one another over the protected nipple.
Abstract: A cap (12) for a beverage bottle (14) includes a passage (22) through which beverage in the bottle may flow from the bottle. A first portion (24) surrounds the passage (22) and is engageable with the lips of a child adapted to consume the beverage that flows through the passage. A second portion (34) clamping engages the beverage bottle (14) to hold the cap (12) on the bottle. The cap (12) is made of an elastic material and the second portion (34) stretches to clamping engage the bottle (14). At least one manually engageable pull tab (40, 42) is for pulling the second portion (34) onto the bottle (14) while the second portion stretches.
