The Perfect Seat: Graco SnugrRde Click Connect 40

Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 in Mena
Things have changed since our last baby was born in 2009.  Her infant seat has expired (seats expire six years after the date of manufacture); and guidelines have changed.

The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends that toddlers are more than five times safer riding rear-facing in a car seat. They should stay rear facing until two years of age.

So, the boy needs a new car seat when he arrives in December and the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 is the perfect seat.

I attended a fun home party with some fellow blogging mamas and got the scope on this seat and infant safety.

The new seat not only adheres to the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for older toddlers, but is also safe for babies. The infant seat grows with babies from four pounds up to 40 pounds, so parents can keep their children rear facing longer, while making sure they stay comfortable as they grow.

Plus I love that it is from Graco, a brand I've trusted for seven years for my two older children!

Here is the scope on Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40:

  • 4-40 pound weight limit; a full 2 years
  • Base adjusts with eight recline positions for most leg room of any rear-facing car seat for baby comfort.
  • The Simply Safe Adjust hardness 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 hardness for extra convenience (LOVE THIS!!!).
  • 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. 
The Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 is part of the Click Connect Series of infant car seats and strollers. The seat is available online and in stores at Babies"R"Us in Mena (which is more feminine) and Moostruck fabric patterns. Retail price is $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.
