Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 Carseat #gracosafety

I will just start by saying that 12 Mama Bloggers, yummy Italian Food, lots & lots of baby/birth stories, plus taking home a pretty sweet new carseat equals amazing.

I had the privilege of attending a Graco event this past Thursday, in honor of the new Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 Carseat, hosted by the lovely Mama Kat of Mama Kat's Losin It.

The party was a blast! I am always excited (and a little nervous, tell me I'm not that only one?) to meet new bloggers in the area. But I've learned that our roles as Mother's always brings us together and makes it easy to connect. And, the conversation about babies and car seat safety was top priority. There was a lot of great discussion and insight going on, which led to the introduction of the newest, revolutionary car seat on the market. I am pretty excited to tell you about the SnugRide Click Connect 40. Prepared to get your mind blown!

We all know by now that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that we keep baby rear-facing until they are 2 y/o. If you're like me, you've had trouble finding a car seat that accommodates this. Especially when you have off-the-charts, super tall monster babies like I do. lol. So you can imagine how pleased I was to hear that the SnugRide Click Connect 40 will accommdate newborn to 2 years!! This infant car seat the only one on the market to let us keep our children rear-facing until 2 y/o with ease.

So let me just dive right in and give you the run down of some of the amazing features:
  • 4-40 pound weight limit - a FULL two years! Incredible.
  • Base adjusts with 8 recline positions for most leg room of any rear-facing car seat for maximized comfort.
  • The Simply Safe Adjust harness systems allows parents to adjust their baby's height as their baby grows, all without having to rethread the harness. 
  • Click Connect attachment which allows parents to easy transition their babies from the car seat to the stroller through a simple, but secure, one-step "click".
Are you jumping for joy right now? I am. I love that this seat offers a solution to not just accommodate their height, but also keep them the safest for an extended period of time. And the functionality makes sense and it's incredibly easy to operate. It feels sturdy and you can tell that a lot of time and thought went into the design of this car seat.

I encourage you to read more about this product and watch the informational videos provided on the gracosafety.com website. And please consider this car seat for your little ones!

Huge thank you to Mama Kat for hosting this party, and to Graco for sponsoring this post!

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.
