Murder bottles

A few images of Baby feeding bottles from the Victorian era, so called because their shit design and the Victorians lack of understanding hygene resulted in the deaths of thousands of children. 3 babies in 10 died because of these bottles.

They were made from glass or even earthenware with a rubber tube running from the nipple to the bottom of the bottle a perfect device to breed bacteria.

Not only were they were very difficult to clean, but many Victorian women turned to the advice of Mrs. Beeton, who in her popular book, Mrs. Beeton’s Household Management (1861), provided a go-to reference guide on how to run a Victorian household, which doled out advice on cooking, hiring and firing household staff, and child rearing… and she was advising that it was not necessary to wash the teat for between 2 or 3 weeks,

They didn't get banned until the 1920s despite Doctors warning for years they were dangerous.

Not wash it for 2/3 weeks??? Gross.
Plain ol common sense and the smell would tell ya that's not a good idea. And mold... Oh gross!

Great post. On the little info sheet on the pics it says only 3 out of 10 babies survived beyond the age of two. Even worse than 3 out of 10 dying! I can't even imagine what that tube must have looked and smelled like after 2 - 3 weeks of not being cleaned 🤢

You are quite correct. I misread the info. Too late to edit my post now, but Thank you
