Hints from Heloise - Seat Belt Safety while Pregnant

Dear Readers: - If you are pregnant or know someone who is, what's the best and safest way to wear a seat belt? When in the car, buckling up is very important. - Here are recommendations from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on buckling up when pregnant: - Put the seat as far back as it can go while still being able to reach the pedals. - Leave at least 10 inches between your chest and the steering wheel. - Place the lap belt below your belly so that it fits tightly across your hips. - The shoulder belt should fit across your chest between your breasts. - Leave air bags turned on. - Sit in the back seat, when possible, if you are pregnant. - The NHTSA also recommends installing the car seat at least three weeks before your due date. That way, you have a chance to get it inspected and aren't rushing when the baby comes. - Heloise
