TODAY’S PATENT – NURSING BLANKET
The Nursing blanket was invented by Jill W. Bollard (Lansdale, PA) on the 23rd of October, 1990, bearing patent number US4964172A.
The principle object of this invention is to provide a blanket type covering for the nursing mother that will provide her with sufficient privacy to discreetly tend to the feeding of her infant while in public by avoiding potentially objectionable exposure. Another object is to provide a device that will not accidentally dislodge or disarrange during use and will remain in place although the infant may be squirming. This device is useable by the mother for nursing from either breast. A still further object is to provide a device that is simple in construction, having a low cost and having little bulk so that can be kept in a purse or other small container.
