PDF/Printer Friendly Version

Tips for keeping your child safe
If you decide to try a kitchen booster seat make sure it has straps that you can use to secure it to a stable chair and belts to keep your child safely in place. Kitchen booster seats are generally used when a child is about 8 months of age. Warning: A kitchen booster seat is NOT to be used in a motor vehicle.

Tips

  • Put together and take care of your kitchen booster according to manufacturers’ instructions, ensure you follow the weight restrictions
  • Do not use on stools, benches or chairs with no backs
  • Attach to chairs that have a stable and wide base
  • Remove any chair cushions prior to use
  • Every time your child is put into the seat, securely fasten the waist belt and the strap between your child’s legs. Make sure the tray is locked securely in place
  • Make sure your child’s hands, arms and legs are clear of moving parts when adjusting the seat or tray
  • Keep the seat away from blind cords to avoid strangulation
  • Keep the seat a safe distance away from walls, doors, windows and appliances. Children can use their feet to push against them and may cause the seat to tip

NEVER LEAVE YOUR CHILD UNATTENDED WHEN THEY ARE IN A KITCHEN BOOSTER SEAT
