(HealthDay News) -- While a high chair seems like a safe place, your child can get hurt if the chair isn't properly used.

The Cleveland Clinic advises:

  • Always use the chair's harness restraint system.
  • Don't allow the high chair to be used for playtime, only for meals.
  • Never allow your child to stand or climb in the chair.
  • Never leave your child unsupervised.
  • Keep the chair away from tables and counters to make sure the child can't reach with his feet to tip the chair backward.
  • Check for recalls to make sure your chair isn't affected.
