Abstract:
A baby couch seat (1) for being positioned on a seat of an adult couch (10) or adult seat (32) and buttressed against a back of the adult couch or seat has a seat base (2), a seat back (3) and border (4) made of softly and thickly cushioned material (11) covered with a covering material (38). The seat base seats a baby (49) high enough to prevent its feet (50) from reaching the seat of the adult couch while resting the baby's legs on a slightly slanted front of the soft, thickly cushioned material. A soft security strap (12) is attachable adjustably to the seat back above the baby's shoulders and extended to the seat base in front of the baby to prevent it from sliding or falling. An activity bar (13) that is adjustable across the front of the baby couch seat positions desired baby toys (14) for ease of the baby's access. Covering material with selectively aesthetic fabric covering over pliable plastic is attachable and detachable to baby-use surfaces and to ornamental portions for easy and convenient sanitation and aesthetics. The baby couch seat is preferably wide enough to prevent it from tipping due to baby movement.

Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

This invention relates to baby seats that can be placed on an adult couch, other adult seat or a generally horizontal surface and hold a baby securely and comfortably in a sitting position.

2. Relation to Prior Art

There are numerous known baby seats which include baby highchairs, car seats, baby back packs, back-strap seats, strollers, swings and carriages.

None are known, however, to provide a baby with soft, cushiony, secure, entertaining and sanitary seating on an adult couch or other adult seat or suitable horizontal surface in a manner taught by this invention.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Objects of patentable novelty and utility taught by this invention are to provide a baby couch seat which:

    • allows comfortable, secure, entertaining and convenient placement of baby sitting or optionally sleeping nearly anywhere desired;
    • has soft, cushiony covering for baby-seat comfort;
    • can have soft, cushiony borders for holding a baby from falling off sidewards;
    • makes baby toys easily accessible to the baby;
    • has soft, cushiony security straps and a bar for securing the baby to the seat while active and while sleeping;
    • supports sanitary covering which can be replaceable for cleaning and for aesthetics;
    • can be placed on an adult couch or other adult seat;
    • can have optional positioning attachments for attaching the baby couch seat wherever desired as an option to being positioned on an adult couch;
    • can be placed on optionally a floor, lawn, table or other horizontal surface; and
    • can be tilted on a horizontal surface to partially reclining orientation for an optional sleeping mode.

This invention accomplishes these and other objectives with a baby couch seat articulated for being positioned on a seat of an adult couch and buttressed against a back of the adult seat. A seat base, a seat back and optionally raised border walls of the baby couch seat are made of softly and thickly cushioned sponge material. The seat base seats a baby high enough to prevent its feet from reaching the seat of the adult couch while resting the baby's legs on a slightly slanted front of the soft, thickly cushioned sponge material. A soft security strap is attachable adjustably to the seat back above the baby's shoulders and extended to the seat base in front of the baby to prevent the baby from sliding or falling. A cushioned activity bar that is adjustable across the front of the baby couch seat positions desired toys for ease of the baby's access. Liner padding with selectively aesthetic fabric covering over pliable plastic is attachable and detachable to baby-use surfaces and to ornamental portions for easy and convenient sanitation and aesthetics. The baby couch seat is preferably wide enough to prevent it from tipping due to baby movement.
