High Chair Safety Tips

This DIY portable high chair craft is a god-send for mothers, but be sure your little one is safely secured while enjoying your family meal no matter where you are.

1. Be sure that the straps are nice and snug but give your child enough room to be comfortable.
2. Use the high chair only for meals to keep its use routine.
3. Do not use the lap table as its own restraint. The table is not a secure strap, and you won’t want your child to fall out of the chair.
4. Never leave the child unattended in the high chair.
5. Don’t let your child stand in the high chair.
6. Distance the high chair far enough away from the table that they can’t use their legs to knock over the chair.
7. For foldable high chairs, be sure that every part is locked into place before placing your child in the seat.

I can't wait to make up several of these for friends with new grandbabies. The video is amazing it helps that even a beginner sewer could make up this amazing pattern. So many possibilities with fabric colors. I think it's even a great item to take and use with you when your out shopping. I can't imagine how dirty the straps in grocery carts are.

Ahh I need this for when my little cousins come to visit! What a fabulous video tutorial!

This looks like such a cute project, and I like that it's small and lightweight so you can probably keep it in the trunk of your car until it's needed.

I really think the portable high chair would make a great shower gift but when you show the picture of the baby in the seat it looks like something comes around the baby's tummy but then the picture of the portable high with no baby in it there is nothing to strap the baby into the seat.

Wow. Where was this when all my children and grand children were little. This is such a handy portable high chair to carry with you.How many times have you gone to get a bite to eat and there are no high chairs or they are all taken so you have to eat with the little one on your lap. Well here is the video for you. So easy to make and a very well made video to follow. I think this is more for an older child not a baby. have a child in mind that needs one. Then sew away.
