More Potentially Dangerous Products for Children
3. High Chairs
At some point, most parents end up buying and using high chairs for their children. This is usually around the time that kids start learning to turn over, crawl and move around. This makes it especially important that parents only purchase high chairs that have a five-point harness system built into them so that children can’t get out of these chairs on their own.
Additionally, when parents are considering buying highchairs, they should:
- Check to make sure that a highchair has not been recalled before making a purchase.
- Remember to never leave their child unattended or unmonitored while he or she is strapped into the highchair.
Over the years, the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled a number of different strollers due to findings that they could harm children. Among the potential flaws and defects that recalled strollers have reportedly exhibited have included (but are not limited to):
- Closing up on the children in them
- Suffocating children
- Not properly locking into place
- Pinching babies’ limbs and/or fingers and toes.
Although newer models of strollers are usually safer than older models, the CPSC warns parents to:
- Always register their strollers with the manufacturer so they can be kept informed if or when recalls for the stroller may be issued.
- Avoid buying older strollers at garage sales or second-hand stores.
- Never leave children unattended in strollers.
While bassinets can be safe spots for babies to sleep in, some poorly designed and/or older models may carry a risk of collapsing or even suffocating babies. With these products, parents are advised to always double check how stable a bassinet is before placing a baby in it and to check if there have been possible recalls on bassinets before buying or using them.
