According to eHow, one baby visits the ER from falling out of a high chair…EVERY HOUR! Don’t assume that your baby is safe and sound in their high chair. Parents who wish to avoid any high chair injuries should be vigilant and mindful of their babies when they’re in their high chair. Also, it’s wise to take advantage of the built-in safety restraints found on most models of high chairs. If your child’s high chair doesn’t have safety restraints, consider investing in one that does!

 

2. Pacifier/sippy cup safety

When your kids start to learn to walk, make sure that they aren’t on the move with something in their mouth! Then, once they’ve come to a stationary position allow them to use the pacifier or sippy cup.
