Infant feeding bottle with teat and valve, England, 1935-1945

Griptight manufactured this feeding bottle during the 1930s or 1940s. It was developed from a design patented in 1858 by inventor Henry Edwards. The bottle was fitted with a teat at one end and a valve at the other. This allowed babies to feed without sucking in air. If babies swallow air while feeding it can contribute towards colic. Colic is a common condition affecting many babies.
