When you’ve got kids screaming, food boiling over and about 10 minutes before the school bell rings, we understand the urge to plop your baby in her high chair, forgetting about the straps and harnesses this time. But new stats published today in the Clinical Pediatrics journal may cause you to think twice before assuming your little one will stay put.
