>Pregnant? Your seat belt is your baby’s first car seat! Make sure you know how to wear it right!

The RED belt shows how NOT to wear it.  The GREEN belt shows the proper way – with the lap belt low and flat on the tops of the thighs so that the belt rests on the strong hip bones and not on the baby or your belly.  ALWAYS wear the shoulder belt (i.e. don’t put it under your arm or behind your back) – as the shoulder belt protects your chest and head in a crash.  Without the shoulder belt across your chest, your body would double over itself in a crash, crushing the baby.
