Health Tip: Use a High Chair Safely
Always use restraints

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- High chairs can keep children safe when they eat, but only when used properly.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these tips for safe use of a high chair:

  • Choose a chair that doesn't easily tip over. Any foldable high chair should be locked when in use.
  • Always use the restraint straps, including the crotch strap, whenever your child is in the seat.
  • Do not let your child stand in the chair, and do not position it close to any desk or counter.
  • Don't allow older children to climb or play on a high chair.
  • Never leave a young child unattended in a high chair.
  • Use a freestanding high chair over one that locks to a table.
  • Make sure your child's feet cannot touch the table.
