BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
 1. Field of the Invention
 The present invention relates generally to supports and, more particularly, to supports for a bottle.
 2. Description of the Related Art
 There are many different types of supports for a bottle, such as a nursing bottle. Several examples of supports are disclosed in U.S. Pat. Nos. 2,354,568 and 4,895,327. However, these types of supports can be unsafe because they apply weight to the infant's chest to achieve stability for holding the baby bottle in place. These types of supports lack safety and comfort for the child. The importance of having safety and manipulation of the bottle is of great concern. The support should not be place on a child's torso or anywhere upon a child when feeding. Hence, it is desirable to provide a support that is safer for the child to use.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
 The present disclosure is generally directed to a support for supporting a bottle, and a method of manufacturing and using the support. The invention will be best understood from the following description when read in conjunction with the accompanying drawings.

The baby bottle 10 is secure between the elastic bands 14 holding in place the bottle 10 for feeding.
 In use, the pillow is place beside the child the pillow body 18. Then the bottle 10 is filled with contents to be fed to the infant. The bottle 10 is then placed on the pillow body 18 insert between the strong durable elastic bands attached to the pillow.
 FIG. 2 shows the double elastic bands 14 and 16 holding baby bottle 10 in place.
 FIG. 3 shows single durable elastic band 14 holding baby bottle 10 in place.
 FIG. 4 shows horizontal view single durable elastic band 14 holding baby bottle 10 on top of pillow body 18 attached.
 FIG. 5 shows vertical criss-crossed durable elastic bands 14 and 16 holding baby bottle 10 in place on pillow body 18. Bands 14 and 16 are attached to pillow body 18 by sewing a 1/2 inch seam allowance 12 and 20.
