More children are injured after falling from highchairs, according to a study in the journal Clinical Pediatrics.

The nationwide study found between 2003 and 2013, highchair-related injuries jumped by 22-percent to 9,400 a year. Most are head injuries.

Often, children aren't strapped in properly and are climbing or standing when they fall, according to the study.
