When I was first asked to speak this past weekend about the new Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 at Babies R Us, I was so excited because Graco is a brand that I trust. In fact, we had the Graco Snugride 35 for my daughter and absolutely loved it. I spent tons of time researching car seats before my daughter was born and if thed the new Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 was available then, I most certainly would have bought it, since it comes fully loaded with a lot of new features (more on those later). All in all, the event was so much as fun and the attendees really got into the trivia game. I got to meet a few bloggers and even the babies had fun mingling.
Now for more on the car seat. As you are all probably aware, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all babies remain rearfacing until at least 2 years of age. It is the safest way for children to travel – five times safer to be exact! (Click here for more info about why rearfacing is safest.) This car seat is the answer to that call. The Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 is the only infant car seat on the market that allows children to rearface from newborn to 2 years of age by accommodating babies from 4-40 pounds!
In more ways than one, this thing is like the Rolls-Royce of car seats. First, the plush padding looks so comfy and soft. The feature I love most about this car seat is the 8-position recline, adding lots of leg room to maximize comfort for your growing baby. I also love that you can easily raise and lower the headrest AND harness with one hand. No more rethreading harnesses! One final touch that simply awed me was that Graco added a little footrest to protect the backs of your seats. This SnugRide was obviously designed with parents in mind!The SnugRide Click Connect 40 simply lifts out of the base and clicks into any Graco Click Connect Stroller. Although pretty light, once children become too big to be carried in the car seat, it can act as a stay-in-the-car car seat. It comes in two fabrics, including Mena, which has some pink throughout, and Moonstruck, which is a more neutral color. But you won’t find the car seat just anywhere – it’s being offered exclusively by Babies R Us.

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.
