    My mom’s van is older and doesn’t have the hooks or whatever for LATCH and her seat belts don’t lock.

    She has 5 seats in the back. 4 with shoulder/lap belts and 1 with just a lap belt. We’ve always used the middle lap belt for Hunter’s…

    I guess I’m just concerned that it’s still not going to be enough to keep the seat belt tight?

    I’ve found a couple videos I’ll have to watch about installing them and I’ve found a couple websites I’m going to look through.

    I just realized recently that I didn’t know if we’d even be able to put 2 seats in her car cuz I didn’t know about the clips, and I panicked a little. I don’t drive yet and I was afraid I was going to be home bound until I got a car. Lol.

    Oh no, they’re super tight!  I don’t have them on my carseats (we have LATCH), but I know the one I use doesn’t move at all.  AT ALL.  And I’m constantly adjusting and moving the belt around because I get in and out of the car, which doesn’t happen once you install a car seat - the belt stays in place.  And if you’re ever concerned, it’s a quick check on their tightness before you leave to go anywhere.  I know my car seats (and I’m fairly sure it’s standard for all car seats) aren’t suppose to move more than an inch when jiggled around; locking clips have to be up to the same standards of safety, otherwise you’d hear of a lot more child deaths/injuries and there’d more than likely have been a recall on them looooong ago.

    So I was reading that there are “locking clips” for seat belts that don’t lock?

    Reblog because my reply is too big…

    Oh!  Those, they’re the little metal things… They help to hold the seats in place by not allowing for there to be any “extra” seat belt length once the seat belt is through the car seat.  So it like…holds it down really tight against the seat.  If that makes any sense…  Your car seat manuals will definitely tell you how to do it properly with the seats you have.

    I actually use one to help hold down my own seat belt when I drive (I’m short and it cuts into my neck otherwise).

    Edit:  I found a picture to show you what I mean:

    you’ll see them pictured as little metal bars to hold in the slack of the seat belt.

Guys SERIOUSLY my feet and ankles just swelled up SO huge as you can see hahaha, in the matter of 2 minutes this happened but seriously should I be worried that it happened so quickly or is it normal this late in pregnancy?

This happened to me my last month of pregnancy. Keep them elevated. And use epsom salt to relieve any tension it helped me. It’s normal so don’t worry.

Actually if it happened just out of nowhere like that, it can be a sign of Pre E. I recommend just checking in with your doctor about it and making sure it’s the normal pregnancy swelling and nothing more!

Yeah, this could be pre eclampsia.  Also, compression socks.  They are amazing for this sort of thing.
