Claims:
1. I claim the Jimmy Cap nipple has a unique three-hole aqueduct system with ¼″×½″ apex for easy flow.

2. I claim the Jimmy Cap offers a full one-inch by three-fourth of inch base spout for the toddler to extract liquid, not sufficient to grasp with gums and teeth.

3. I claim the Jimmy Cap one and half inch disk fits all standard bottles and caps.

Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The specialization of Baby Bottles has drawn the invention of a soft spout to replace the nipple of a standard baby bottle.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The Jimmy Cap is unique and highly functional. Our main goal is to design a spout that works with the child. The JIMMY CAP gives you options as your child grows. The Jimmy Cap reduces the need of different cups for each spout, by solving previous existing problems.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

A. The 1″ spout is attached to the ⅛″×1½″ outer disk base plate as one unit. Liquid Silicone Rubber exhibits steam resistance (needed for frequent sterilization), has excellent tensile strength and tear strength and imperviousness to food contact, while remaining comparatively soft and pliable. The chemical inertness of the silicone, its non-allergenic properties and transparency (as well as its ability to stand up to a mauling in the hands of a toddler or infant) make it the ideal material for all baby care product applications. Certain LSR grades comply with FDA food regulation 21 CFR 177.2600 and Bg VV (formerly BGA) XV when correctly processed. Injection Molding of Liquid Silicone Rubber is typically used for manufacturing these items because of its high productivity compared to other materials, a result of the short cycle time during manufacturing. The fully automated manufacturing process and the high number of pieces per manufacturing cycle also benefit the bottom line. A typical curing process takes place at 200*C over a period of 4 hours in an oven with fresh air supply. This allows children to use the optimal Jimmy Cap Spout in varied conditions.

B. Front view illustrates a ½″ wide spout to distribute the liquid across the gums onto the tongue and palate. Contamination—These materials are packaged in a closed system; there is less chance of contamination because an operator does not physically touch the material.

C. Top view illustration displays a three-hole aqueduct system on the ¼″×½″ apex to channel the flow of liquid. Part Configuration—Because of liquid silicone rubber's flow properties, they are ideal for small intricate parts where maintaining tight tolerances is important.
