Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 Carseat review by Very Busy Mama

Here at the very busy familia, we are getting ready for baby número dos in February and of course a new car seat was on the list.  Recently the American Academy of Pediatrics put out a new policy which advises parents to keep their toddlers rear-facing in car seats until the age of two.

Did you know that? I sure didn’t! And I can guarantee many other parents out there are unaware of it as well.

When Graco and SpanglishBaby asked me to review the new SnugRide Click Connect car seat – the ONLY newborn to  2-year infant car seat on the market that provides rear-facing protection for babies from birth to 2- years-old (from 4 – 40 lbs) I happily agreed to knowing that other parents-to-be may be looking for guidance  in the car seat deparment.  I like to think of myself as a practical mamá and only purchase what is needed. The fact that the SnugRide actually saves you having to buy additional car seat accessories was a very good starting and selling point with me.

It used to be that we celebrated our children turning two by happily turning their car seat to face the front  – which of course was standard before the policy was issued. Clearly my baby hasn’t tried and tested the seat yet, but obviously as parents we purchase accessories before our babies are born and we like to be given the hard cold facts on safety and what is best for our childrens’ well-being.

The SnugRide Click Connect gives me peace of mind and I know the little one will be safe and snug in this car seat. Here are the features it offers:

  • 8-position adjustable base grows with your child, providing the most legroom and a comfortable ride for up to two years.
  • Simply Safe Adjust Harness System is safe and simple with one hand-harness and headrest adjustment.
  • Click Connect technology provides a one step secure attachment to all Graco Click Connect strollers to create a travel system.

Good stuff, right?!  I certainly think so. And having never owned a Graco product before, my husband and I were both impressed by the high quality and sturdiness of the car seat.  And obviously it complies with the updated car seat regulations.

I strongly encourage you to visit their site to get the instructional and safety videos directly from the experts. As for us, we can’t wait to bring home our little girl in it this February!

You can buy the SnugRide at your local Babies R Us.
