At home, do you buckle your LO into their high chair?
We do, but three different people on three different occasions have commented on how I still do that. How normal am I for still buckling?
Yes, always. My BFF's son fell out of his high chair at about 8 months because he was in and not buckled. He somehow pushed the tray and went flying out. He's 4 and he still has a scar on his face from the fall. It's not a risk I want to take.
I took the straps out of my high chair to clean them before Aria's party... and never put them back in. So, no, I don't.
I don't leave Aria when she's in the seat (never out of my line of sight and more than a step away), and she hasn't tried to get out of it yet. If/when she starts trying to get out, I'll put the straps back in and buckle them. If I needed to put her in the high chair while I did something that would keep me from watching her the whole time she was in it, I would put the straps back on and buckle her in.
We use the straps at my Mom's and Mamaw's, (and out to eat, obviously) since there's more of a chance that we'll have our eyes off of her for a bit longer than at home. (since there's more going on)
Around the waist yes at home...we never do at restaurants though - I'm not sure why?
ETA: I can't spell...
Lena122:Yep, always. He's never tried to climb out but it only takes one time...
This is my thought. We'll probably unbuckle when the big blaring note on the chair says to - when she can climb down on her own at the appropriate time. Knowing her, that'll probably be around 3

suitern:I don't buckle him in, in the high chair at home because there is pretty much no way he can climb out of the kind we have. When we are at restaurants, we ALWAYS buckle him in since he could flip over the side, etc.
Lawren:I never have, at home or restaurants, but he never tries to climb out.
SapphireDreamRock:We don't buckle at home but she's never attempted to get out. At restaurants we always buckle.
Our rationale is that if she is choking, it would take too long to get the tray off and unbuckle the shoulder straps to get her out. In restaurants, it's just a lap belt, and we leave it fairly loose.

Ainslie325:Every time. I always have, so I guess I just don't find it all that difficult or inconvenient.
This. Plus, B will sit in the chair without the tray for a few minutes while I clean it out at the end of the meal, so it's convenient to strap her in for that reason.
