OF INVENTION Technical Problem

THE BOTTLE CADDY clamps to a baby's high chair, car seat, playpen, stroller or any other apparatus (e.g. wheelchair or a bed). It has a flexible swivel arm with a sleeve on the end to hold a bottle securely in place. This allows for hands-free feeding. THE BOTTLE CADDY would be constructed of a lightweight metal and durable molded plastic. There are no sharp edges and the surfaces will be smooth and maintenance free which will allow for easy cleaning.

Solution to Problem

THE BOTTLE CADDY consists of a metal or plastic clamp with plastic or rubber coated tips. Flexible tubing ½″ in diameter and 14″ about long is attached to the handle on then clamp via a threaded fitting ½″ in length. On the other end of the tubing is another threaded fitting ½″ in length, attached to the end is a plastic sleeve approximately 2½″ long to hold the bottle. The plastic sleeve or holder is adjustable to allow for securing various bottle sizes.

As an option an accessory Velcro strap is available, if required, for additional security of the bottle. However, the plastic sleeve is designed to secure varying bottle sizes.

Advantageous Effects of Invention

There are times when a parent needs two sets of hands, one to attend to other sibling(s) or do something that just can't wait and the other to feed the baby now. This is when THE BOTTLE CADDY helps. Clamp it to the baby seat, stroller or any other baby apparatus, put the bottle in the bottle sleeve adjust it, and the parent could watch the baby feed while taking care of whatever else needs tending. Also, in cases where a disable individual with limited use of their hands can easily drink or feed themselves without the assistances of someone holding the bottle for them. Anyone could use THE BOTTLE CADDY easily; he or she would simply attach the clamp, slide the bottle in the sleeve, adjust the swivel arm so that the bottle is in the right position and baby feeds. This also can be used for persons with medical conditions or disability that prevent them from feeding themselves without the help of a caregiver.
