Abstract (en)

The invented baby bottle is responding to the different positions in which the parents bottlefeed the babies or the different positions in which the babies themselves hold the baby bottles. These positions range from the baby lying down on the floor, sitting on the highchair, or being cuddled in the parent's arm and the baby standing. The invention makes it convenient and comfortable for the parents to hold the bottle when they bottlefeed the babies and also for the babies when they have to hold the bottles by themselves. The invention is designed in such a way that the milk will always flow down to fill up the neck of the bottle and the nipple by means of the axis passing the center of the diameter of the neck of the bottle and the axis passing the center of the diameter of the main body of the bottle are parallel to each other but are on different levels. The part of the wall of the bottle that links the neck of the bottle and the main body is in a sloping position. This makes the milk or liquid food flow down from the main body of the bottle at a higher level to the neck of the bottle at a lower level. This also enables the babies to suck the milk or liquid food evenly and enjoyably for a lengthy period of time. As a result, the invented baby bottle helps lessen the chance that the babies will take air into his/her stomach which could lead to colic or indigestion. <IMAGE>
