Breastmilk storage system with stackable bottles and lids
A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230172810A1) describes a breastmilk storage system that allows for easy stacking and secure attachment of multiple bottles. The system includes a first bottle with an associated lid that can be stacked on top of a second bottle while the lid covers the opening of the first bottle.
The top surface of the first lid is designed to mate with the bottom surface of the second bottle, with a convex shape that complements the shape of the second bottle's bottom surface. The first lid also features an upwardly extending flange around its edge, which can engage with a ridge on the second bottle to secure it to the first lid. The attachment features between the flange and the ridge are in the form of mating threads. Additionally, the top surface of the first lid includes an upwardly extending protrusion that is shaped to fit into a recess in the bottom surface of the second bottle, providing further stability and attachment between the two bottles.
The patent also describes a method for stacking breastmilk storage containers, which involves placing a lid over the opening of another bottle and positioning the second bottle on top of the lid. The lid is shaped to complement the bottom surface of the bottle and includes attachment features that secure the bottle to the lid.
In another embodiment, the breastmilk storage system includes a first bottle with an associated lid and a second bottle with a different associated lid. The bottom of the first bottle is designed to mate with and stack on top of the second associated lid, while the bottom of the second bottle is designed to mate with and stack on top of the first associated lid. Both bottoms include recesses that receive a portion of the associated lid from the other bottle. The first associated lid also features a flange that wraps around a portion of the bottom of the second bottle, while the second associated lid includes a flange that wraps around a portion of the bottom of the first bottle.
Overall, this patent describes a breastmilk storage system that allows for easy stacking and secure attachment of multiple bottles, providing convenience and stability for storing breastmilk.
