My friend Erica recently hosted an in-home party for Graco in honor of their new carseat, the Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40. Unfortunately, I had to decline her invitation due to a scheduling conflict, but that hasn’t stopped me from doing some research on my own. I’m all about getting the most mileage from “baby” items, and the idea of a baby-to-toddler car seat sure got my attention.
I’m sure you’ve heard that the new car seat recommendation for children is to remain rear-facing until they’re at least two years of age. It used to be one, and we had a problem even making it to one year in Emma’s second car seat, because she became so tall. My son, at six months of age, is already 25 inches long, so I am anticipating that we’ll have this issue once again. I can’t wait to put the Graco SnugRide to the test.
My favorite feature is the Simply Safe Adjust harness system which allows one-handed adjusting without having to rethread the harness. The car seat comes in two colors, Mena and Moonstruck, both available at Babies”R”Us stores and online for $219.99.
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.
