Infant's feeding bottle, England, 1901-1940

This glass infant’s feeding bottle has a screw top lid. It originally had a rubber teat attached to it. It is marked with a numerical scale. The name ‘The Wenbury’ is embossed upon it. This indicates it was used in an institutional setting such as a hospital, not a domestic one. Bottle feeding rather than breastfeeding increased during the late 1800s. This bottle was manufactured in the first half of the 1900s. A range of infant formulas were available by this time. Many women bottle fed their children.
