Andrew is quickly outgrowing the infant carrier we’ve been using as a car seat, and we’ve been looking around at some different options that would fit our needs.
Did you know that the American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends that children stay in a rear-facing car seat until they’re 2 years old and 40 pounds?
Car seats are a hefty investment, and we wanted to be sure that we chose one that would last and keep Andrew comfortable.
So when I was invited to attend a #GracoSafety event at the home of fellow DFW blogger, Staci from 7 on a Shoestring, I was excited to learn more about Graco’s latest car seat.
Here’s a little about the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40:
- 4 – 40 pound weight limit — a full 2 years
- Base adjusts with 8 recline positions for most leg room of any rear-facing car seat for baby comfort
- The Simply Safe Adjust™ harness systems allows parents to adjust the harness and headrest with just one hand to fit their baby’s height as their baby grows, all without having to rethread the harness for extra convenience.
- Click Connect™ attachment which allows parents to easily transition their babies from the car seat to the stroller through a simple, but secure, one-step “click.”
Staci’s family was so welcoming – and Andrew became an instant celebrity among her daughters. We had some amazing food from Zoës Kitchen in Flower Mound. Zoës’ menu features Mediterranean-inspired comfort food with made-from-scratch recipes using fresh ingredients.
Then we got down to business – testing the car seat.
Some of my favorite features are the Simply Safe Adjust™ harness system (no re-threading the straps! Woohoo!) and the foot shield, which prevents your child from kicking the back of your seat in the car.
I’m excited to share some of our travels with you, featuring the Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 and what Andrew (and I) think about it!
Disclaimer: The Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 – the first and only newborn to two-year infant car seat that actually grows with your baby from four pounds all the way up to 40 pounds. The car seat is designed for a parent on the go. The infant car seat can be easily removed from the base and used as a carrier when the infant is small, providing portability and convenience so you can easily move your infant in and out of the car without disturbing them.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recently made the recommendation to keep all children in rear-facing car seats until the age of 2. Graco set out to make this product so parents can keep infants rear facing longer while still keeping them comfortable.
