A high chair may not seem like a top priority when your baby's a newborn, since it’ll be four to six months before baby’s ready for solids. But once baby is ready for that exciting first spoonful, you’ll have a lot of other things to think about, like what to feed her, when to feed her—and who's going to clean up the mess! Dig in to these high chair basics and you′ll be ready for some feeding fun.
While you won’t need a high chair for at least a few months after baby’s born, a high chair tends to be a long term investment, one you’re likely to use from the time baby’s just starting to sit (or earlier, if you get one with a recline or cradle option) to the time she’s ready for a booster seat, around age 3. These days, many high chairs grow with baby, converting from an infant seat to a toddler booster and then to a proper chair for your big girl (or boy).
A changing table usually consists of a flat surface designed to comfortably hold your child while you change him or her. It is also designed to keep your child securely in place while you need to use both hands. Select a changing table with rounded corners; they will be safer for your child. Guardrails or safety rails are included in the designs of most them. They go around at least three sides of the table; in many cases guardrails can be found on all four sides. Safety straps allow you to strap your child onto the changing station. Most of them include the safety straps, but if they don‵t, they can be purchased separately. They provide additional protection against your child rolling away from you or from falling. Because organizations and manufacturers are continually making improvements, register your changing table with its manufacturer. In the event of any product recalls, you will be notified.
An infant-only seat should be placed in the back seat, ideally in the middle of the back seat, but most important, in a position where it fits securely. Read the owner´s manual for your vehicle to find out how to use its seat belts with a child safety seat. Use your knee to push down on the seat as you tighten the car´s seatbelt through the belt path. The car seat should not move more than 1 inch (3 centimeters) from side to side or forward and backward at the belt path. If the seat wiggles or moves on the belt path, the belt needs to be tighter.
