My Baby is 24 lbs but only 30”s, can I still use the seat?
Yes. The seat is designed for children in the median height and weight of a 6 month old boy (as boys are typically larger than girls) but the seat may be used until such time as the child or the parent is uncomfortable with its use.

Absolutely. Our seat is designed with her in mind. Of course, monitoring the 5 year old during her holding period is good parenting.
I have fallen asleep holding the baby at night after breastfeeding, could the baby sleep in the Seat.
Yes. As long as the seat is strapped properly to you and the infant is strapped in the seat, the baby is secure. Quite a few of our Moms have told us they use the chair for night breastfeeding in a recliner especially if the baby has reflux, so they can keep the infant at a 30 degree angle for 30 to 45 minutes afterwards at times when they may dose off.
I have reviewed your website and see a lot of information on bonding and am just wondering how if I am breastfeeding and spending quite a bit of time holding my baby already, does your product assist in bonding?
Bonding occurs in many different ways from before childbirth up to 8 months and even later after birth, in such ways as skin to skin contact, eye contact, massaging , singing to your baby, cuddling, caressing to just to name a few. In our “How to Parenting” research, we have come up with this product and its design to allow the parent, Grandparent, siblings or anyone to effortlessly, safely and securely hold the baby for long periods of time which assists in the bonding between the infant and the holder extending the bonding not only to the Mother but to the family as well.
As a new Mom I have been using a Boppy feeding pillow for Breastfeeding as my Mother told me it assists in bonding, but my baby still seems to reflux after feeding. Would your product help with that reflux as well as Bonding?
While our product has significantly more uses and benefits than feeding pillows or other baby products, one of its primary functions is acting as an acid reflux pillow or “ar pillow”, which allows for the baby to be positioned at a 30 to 45 degree angle during and after feeding to allow for the best digestion of the babies food.
As a New Mother I have been bonding with my baby as much as possible but the Father has not, because he finds it a little scary to hold the baby and a little difficult as well. Will your product assist in the Bonding with the Father as well?
If you read the story of Babee Laptime the product was actually thought of by a Father for those exact reasons. He loved to hold and spend time with his Baby Alex but was a little frightened by his fragility and holding him for periods of time made him uncomfortable. With Babee Laptime Fathers can now hold and bond with there baby like never before.
Are there any products of similar nature on the market for bonding?
Being the only one of its kind ever invented, the product is a lifesaver for new moms. There are products such as baby slings, and baby carriers that also promote bonding but none that allow you to sit the baby in front of you and look at you or that allow the eye to eye contact that assist in bonding like Babee Laptime.
Are there any unpublished Baby tips you can help us with while using the product?
We have found that many parents use the product for many different things other than what we suggest. As you become familiar with Babee laptime you will find it has an abundance of uses we do not publish.
I am breastfeeding my baby and want to know if I must disconnect the seat and switch sides to start feeding again.
Yes, the seat is designed to optimally position to feed your baby off of one breast at a time. A large number of women have one breast that they call the “Breastfeeding breast” which is typically the one that gets favored the most. As Babee Laptime makes breastfeeding easy, we would suggest starting on the side to hopefully equally out the milk flow from each breast.
Should I bottle feed my baby with the baby facing me or to the side?
Bottle feeding your baby is solely your preference. If the baby is facing you, I personally feel you get to enjoy their warm looks, smiles and light grabs a little more. But when the baby is lying across you and feeding, they are closest to your heart.
I am having a very hard time getting my baby to latch on to my nipple correctly, could the infant feeding position on your seat help?
Yes absolutely. Babee Laptime is designed to allow you easily to position the baby to latch on to your breast comfortably. Our users have advised that when feeding their babies with Babee Laptime vs. a breastfeeding pillow they are much more comfortable and the breastfeeding experience is more enhanced as well.
Is there any special technique to breastfeeding with the lapseat?
“How to breastfeeding” is one of the many sample testing’s we did over and over again to perfectly position the baby for breastfeeding. In fact it caused a few redesigns to perfect the positioning.
I use the seat so much and when it gets dirty and feeding time arises when it is in the wash I am unable to relax and feed like I do with the seat now. Do you sell just the cover?
Yes. Thank you for the question as it is apparent you really utilize the product as we hoped. Please call our customer service line and our Managing Member says we will send you a complimentary cover as it is exciting to hear of that type of need of the product.
My baby is due in November and I don’t know about Breastfeeding yet. Are there other products on the market that are slightly less expensive than yours?
Unfortunately no. There are no other lapseats on the market whatsoever, and no other product that collectively allows you to do all of the things that Babee Laptime does especially ones that allow you to effortlessly and safely hold your infant for hours on end, while bonding, feeding and simply enjoying your baby, all of the while assisting in reflux and colic relief.
Is Baby Laptime better for Breastfeeding or Bottle feeding?
It is equally beneficial for either or both. Although physicians recommend breastfeeding for numerous reasons including the infant immunity system, infant nutrition, bonding, Babee Laptime is designed to make both easy and enjoyable.
Can I sleep with my baby in the lapseat while breastfeeding?
We do not recommend it, but if you are late night breastfeeding and you feel you may fall asleep, make sure you and your baby are securely strapped in and are in a safe seat that does not allow for you to rollover or adjust to where you would put your baby in a compromising position.
Colic and Reflux
My baby literally projectile vomits after or even during feeding, will the seat help this?
Our seat is scientifically designed to assist in reflux in babies. While you are holding your infant, your baby will be at a 30 to 45 degree angle during and after feeding. Feeding the child at this angle allows the milk to more freely enter the stomach through the esophagus thus reducing the (GERD) reflux reaction causing the vomiting. There are a few other key techniques such as smaller quantities of food, massaging the babies’ stomach and more that can all be found on our resource page.
My Baby has severe Colic, can the seat help reduce my babies crying?
Yes, Colicky babies love to be held and massaged. Babee Laptime due to its comfort in use, allows you to hold your baby for longer periods of time effortlessly, thereby making the child feel more protected and loved. It is also designed to be at a 30 to 45 degree angle to comfort the baby during and after feeding. There are numerous discussions that GER or infant reflux may be a cause or an assistant to the cause of Colic.
Our baby has “baby gas” and cries often does the 30 degrees assist in gas relief in my baby?
Babee Laptime does not have any particular measures for gas relief, however when a baby cries, even if its due to gas, they want and need to be comforted and held. Holding them and massaging and talking to them using Babee Laptime all comfort the baby hopefully allowing time and with it “baby gas” to pass.
I have twins; both have reflux and or infant colic. Can I hold 2 babies in the seat at one time and will it assist in stopping my babies crying?
First congratulations on your twins. Unfortunately the seat is only for one baby at a time. Your babies and crying from the colic is normal. We recommend having 2 Babee Laptime seats, one for you and one for your husband so that you may be able to separate the colicky or reflux infants from room to room, for your sanity and to allow you to hold them for longer periods of time, to at a minimum comfort them and assist in the reduction of reflux.
I see your seat assists in Reflux; will it also assist in gastroesophagael reflux or Gerd reflux?
Yes, the medical name for reflux in infants is GERD or Gastroesophagael reflux disease.
My child only spits up once in a while, what are the symptoms of reflux in my baby and how does your product help.

It also allows you to hold them longer and positions them to allow you to warmly and gently massage them which assist in reflux reduction.
Is your seat a proven “treatment for reflux”?
