Research Says Rear Facing Car Seats Until 2
car seat safety

The American Academemy of Pediatrics {AAP}  now recommend that you keep a your babies car seat rear facing until they are 2 years old.  "Children are 5 times safer in a rear facing car seat. "(AAP)

When your baby grow out of the infant car seat you have to purchase another car seat that is rear facing for toddlers.  We purchased the Graco MetroLite for Baby Bear with 2 bases and could only use them for a short amount of time.  She was too long to fit before the met the weight limit and we needed to get another 3 rear facing car seats to use (Mr. BBH, grandparent, & I).  The toddler seats do not click into a base, so you have to purchase an entire car seat for the cars that you need unless you want to undo the car seat every time you switch cars.  

How wasteful is that?  

Now the Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 can be used birth- age 2 {4 lbs to 40 lbs}.  Only one car seat with multiple bases, making it a little more friendly on the earth and your wallet.

There are so many simple but brilliant changes on this car seat.  There is a one handed push that adjusts that adjusts the harness straps up or down to make sure that you have the correct fit.  {The older models had to be re-threaded every time that you wanted to change the strap height.}

Another change that makes a huge difference is the shape of the base.  It has a curve that is shaped to better fit the 90 degree L-shape of a car seat.  You can use it with the latch or with a belt.  Just listen for the click to know that it is secure on the base or a compatible stroller.

You can take the car seat from infant to toddler in a few simple clicks.  There are 8 recline settings to choose from and more leg room with a foot rest to protect your car from dirty feet.

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.
