Posted: Updated:

 

(KYTX) -  If you have a baby or toddler in the family, you know how important high chairs are. but a new study shows just how dangerous they can be.  

Injuries are up 22 percent. researchers found that every year in the past five years there nearly 95-hundred high chair-related injuries seen in emergency rooms.

"The top three things that I would recommend to a parent to prevent injuries from falls from a high chair is strap your child in, stray your child in, strap your child in."

 

 
The study found, most of the children were injured after they fell out of the high chair. 
researchers say, that's because parents don't use the straps that come with the chairs.
