Remember when I posted a picture of an infant car seat about a week or so ago? A few of you asked it I was baby shopping and no that wasn’t the case. I got invited along with a few other great bloggers to try out the new Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 Car seat. It’s the only car seat on the market that will go up to 2 years old rear facing. You do know that it’s recommend by The American Academy of Pediatrics that you keep your child rearing facing up until 2 years old right?
I actually have to admit that I haven’t followed this recommendation. I turned Caden forward a few weeks back, he’s 17 months old. He just wasn’t having it and ever since he got a little taste of “forward-ness” in NYC he’s loved it. It’s been great for us but I still agree with the new recommendation that you should try and keep them rear facing as long as possible. With our next one (whenever that will be) I will be trying to keep him or her rear facing as long as I can. Alright, back to the car seat.
Once I got down to the hotel we all had a chance to catch up with one another and eat some delicious food!
Jessica and I.
We then learned all about the new car seat from Dana.
Here are a few key points that she mentioned:
- The weight limit goes up to 40lbs, that’s a full 2 years!
- The base adjusts with 8 recline positions for most leg room of any rear-facing car seat out there. Which means our little campers are happy because their feet aren’t all squished up.
- The Simply Safe Adjust harness systems allows us to adjust the height with one hand. No more rethreading!
- It has a click connect attachment which makes it easy to take them from the car to the stroller with a simple click!
Then it came to the fun part! We actually got to play around with the car seat and test it out. Well, we didn’t test it out but this little cutie did! She’s over a year old and she absolutely loved it. I mean seriously look how cozy she is. And check out the foot room, her feet aren’t even touching.
Once the party started winding down I grabbed my car seat and bolted. Ha-ha just kidding but I did actually get to take one home with me. How cool is that?
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.
