LapBaby Review – Hands Free Seating Aid

LapBaby review

LapBaby is designed to keep your baby secure on your lap. It allows you to be hands-free whilst eating, working or playing, whilst still keeping baby safe and close to you.

The LapBaby comes in a lightweight pouch with a handy clip on the end to attach to a nappy bag or similar. The LapBaby also features an extendable, detachable and wipe-clean lapcloth plus a clip for a toy or soother.

I was offered the LapBaby to review from a travel perspective.

My chief tester was twenty months old at the time of reviewing and is already toting up thousands of air-miles. She is a little older than some who have reviewed this product, but it is suitable for babies aged three months and over.

The LapBaby also features an extendable, detachable and wipe-clean lapcloth plus a clip for a toy or soother.

Another bonus is it is free from harmful chemicals and allergens, and machine washable at 30 degrees. It’s very ease to use and takes just a few seconds to put on.

I tested the LapBaby on our recent flight. My youngest is a real cuddle monster but like most older babies, has a good reach on her!

The LapBaby provided a great deal more support for her than the aircraft lap belt, and enabled me to have a cup of hot tea without her being able to grab it from my husbands tray table.

This was a complete bonus! My hands were free to reach for things for my other daughter, whilst amusing the youngest too. She really loves her cuddles, so this helped keep her secure and close.

Meal times on holiday were equally better. Predominately she uses a high chair, but most of the time becomes restless before the meal is finished and ends up on mine or my husbands lap. This way, we could still contain her and finish the last remnants of our meal.

Using our Lapbaby


A really useful product for babies of all ages. I would really liked to have used it when Matilda was younger too, as eating, typing with one hand was always a struggle. I especially liked how the LapBaby was so useful for meal times on the plane and for writing this post!

The LapBaby retails for £29.99 and can be shipped worldwide. A similar version is also available on Amazon.

If you liked this you may be interested in some more handy airplane travel accessories, the  Skybaby travel mattress or the CoziGo bassinet cover, or the Travel Snug

The Travelling Chopsticks

Friday 12th of May 2017

I think this could be EXACTLY what I am looking for! We are currently living in Brazil, and on Brazilian domestic routes they do not give seat belts to lap children - they just tell you to hold on to them tightly during turbulence! Thank you for your review!
