The American Collectors of Infant Feeders is a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to gather and publish information pertaining to the feeding of infants throughout history. The collecting of infant feeders and related items is promoted.
The American Collectors of Infant Feeders was founded in 1973 by several people interested in the history and collecting of infant feeders. Our organization’s members collect many items related to the care and feeding of infants such as antique baby bottles and sterilizers, infant and invalid feeders and pap boats, infant formula and food tins, medicine spoons, advertisements, trading cards and pictures.The group meets annually at a location of mutual interest. Members bring unusual or rare items to show and share with other members, usually there are presentations by members on a certain type of feeder or a manufacturer, members donate items for our auction, and there is also a sale. Most of all, it is a chance renew friendships and to gather and discuss recent finds, current sources and prices of collectibles, and the history of old feeders.
Our members collect baby bottles from ancient versions to modern ones, they may be made of metal, glass or plastic
Infant and Invalid Feeders
