Protect Kids From High Chair Injury Risks

Posted on December 9, 2013

Car seats get a lot of media attention, but there’s another type of child safety seat that parents have to be aware of for safety purposes:  the high chair. Between 2003 and 2010, research estimates that an average of 9,400 kids younger than three have had to receive emergency treatment on an annual basis due to a high chair-related injury.  To combat these injuries, officials from the Columbus, Ohio-based Nationwide Children’s Hospital have compiled safety tips that parents can put into practice.  A new report relates that advice, starting with the fact that a parent should affix the straps whenever the child is placed within the seat, a situation that ought to only occur during mealtime.  The seat should not be treated as just another play area.  A parent ought to supervise the child at all times and keep up to date on the latest recall information.
