Infant Lap Support
The Infant Lap Support is a soft material that will hold an infant on a person’s legs for hands-free interaction. The material is secured with straps and quick-release buckles to the adult’s legs, and an additional strap may be used to keep the infant from rolling off the device.
The straps hold the legs together, so the user will not have to strain to hold the position. This creates a soft, stable surface that holds the support device and prevents the baby from sliding down between the legs.

The Infant Lap Support is a device for conveniently and safely supporting an infant on the lap of a user. It is comprised of an infant support panel, made of soft and flexible material, a leg attachment strap(s) to wrap under and around the legs of a user, quick-connect buckles to keeps the legs together, and an additional safety strap to secure the baby.
The buckled straps hold a user’s legs together so there is little or no muscle strain to prevent them from separating, which could let the baby slip between them and fall. The straps can be adjusted to a comfortable tightness for the user, and can be disconnected easily when the user is finished holding the baby and needs to get up.
In a different style, the infant support panel includes reinforcing members. Reinforcing members are preferably rigid or semi rigid, long, thin bars which extend longitudinally along at least part of infant support panel secured in pockets sewn into the panel. Reinforcing members, such as dowel rods, help maintain longitudinal support for the infant’s head, spine and legs. They are positioned parallel to one another, at opposing edges, and outside of a middle portion.
Either style of the device holds an infant comfortably on the user’s lap, which allows for face-to-face contact, hands-free interaction, and a safe napping place for the baby when the parent (or caregiver) just wants some quiet time together.
