Parenting Tips for Your 9 Month Old Baby
Children have been hurt or killed in recliner chair accidents. A child's head and neck can become trapped between the leg rest and chair if the chair folds up. Children between 12 and 30 months old have had their head and neck trapped between the leg rest and the chair (if the chair folds up). The children were injured or killed when they were alone in a room and climbed on the leg rest of the chair.
If you have a recliner chair: Always keep it in an upright position when it’s not in use.
Don’t let your baby play on the leg rest, even when an adult is in the chair.
