The lap belt should be worn low around the hip bones and be kept as tight as is comfortable. The shoulder belt should be kept above the high point of the abdomen (belly), but low enough to avoid having it cross over your neck.
Be sure to use the seat head rest to support your neck. It is important to keep good posture while traveling.
Most accidents happen close to home, so please don’t save your best safety measures for long trips. Buckle yourself and your baby up every time you travel, even on the way home from the hospital. By not using your seat belt, you are taking the risk of hurting yourself or your baby.
By buckling up you are doing the very best you can to avoid injury.
