In 1770 a new design emerged as part of a movement to make artificial feeing safer and to impact the strong hold of the wet nurse. Dr. Hugh Smith conceived the delightfully named “Bubby Pot” (a name derived from an old world euphemism for the female breast) based on gravy pots of the period but with perforations in a closed spout; over this a fine piece of rag or chamois was loosely tied to serve as a nipple.
