Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 #GracoSafety


Last week I got to attend a #GracoSafety home party where we received an amazing demonstration given by my BabyElan {daily} editor Dana and we were each given the new Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 car seat! We were joined by 14 other wonderful local bloggers, served some amazing local food, and had a blast learning about the new Graco car seat.
The Snugride Click Connect 40 is the first infant car seat that can remain rear facing for up to 2 years and up to 40 lbs. Did you know that toddlers are more than 5 times safer riding rear facing? Last year the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) changed the recommendation that children should remain rear facing until they are 2 years old.

In 2007, a study showed that children under 2 were 75% less likely to die or be severely injured in a crash if they were rear facing. This has proven to be difficult for many parents and children since the most common complain is comfort and leg room, so they change to forward facing sooner.
The new Graco Snugride Click Connect has 8 reclining positions that provide optimal comfort and they are easy to adjust for your growing child. The Snugride has the most legroom of any rear facing car seat available. I love the adjustable footrest to prevent your child from kicking the seat. There is even a level indicator on the base that tells you if your child is in the correct reclining position for their age.
The SnugRide Click Connect 40 has a Simply Safe Adjust harness system that allows parents to adjust the harness and headrest with just one hand to fit their baby's height as their baby grows without having to rethread the harness. The car seat has a Click Connect attachment which allows parents to easily transition their babies from the car seat to the stoller with just 1 click. The new Graco strollers all come with the Click Connect feature so you no longer have to worry about your car seat not being properly attached to the stroller.

The Snugride Click Connect 40 has been side impact tested and gone through rigorous crash testing. It is also made with EPS, a energy absorbing foam for effective impact energy management.

The Snugride Click Connect 40 is for children 4-40 pounds and up to 35 inches in height. It retails for $219.99 and can be purchased at Babies R Us or Toys R Us.

I can't wait to try it out once baby boy gets here! I love the Moonstruck pattern. And the girls style, Mena is just as gorgeous! I feel Graco has definitely stepped it up a notch with this car seat in terms of safety plus it's innovative design. Be sure to check out their website and see the videos of the new SnugRide Click Connect 40!!

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. This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Graco.
