Saturday was certainly a fun day. I attended, and assisted with the #GracoSafety Event at Babies R Us in Tampa. Hostess Kelly Stillwell gave two product demos on the Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 car seat.
We had two fun parties, and two fun car seat giveaways. There were yummy snacks and a fun trivia game. We also had a fun photo booth area just in case anyone wanted to have a photo taken.
Due to the local breast cancer awareness walk earlier in the day, our first party didn’t have all that many attendees, but it was nice to get to know the ladies (and a Dad) better.
Our second party had more guests, but it was still a lot of fun. I loved how the winner of the second car seat giveaway screamed out in delight when she won.
It was really nice to meet some moms and moms to be.
I learned a lot about the Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 from Kelly’s presentation. It is the only rear facing car seat on the market that fits newborn through to two years old. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies stay rear facing through at least two years old. A baby is five times safer if they are rear facing. My Ziggy will be two on Friday, and he is still rear facing, and he will be for quite awhile longer.
Kelly and I also learned from a licensed car seat tech who works at Babies R Us that in Europe they actually require that babies remain rear facing through the age of three years old, and they are extremely strict about it.
If we decide to expand our family, I would definitely love to have the Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 car seat, as well as the matching stroller. The Mena and Moonstruck prints are so adorable.
Snapping the car seat into the base in your car as well as into the stroller is so easy and smooth. Baby isn’t jostled around as you try to line things up for 20 minutes! It also has 8 different recline positions, and adjusts with ease.
One of my favorite features is the pull out footrest which also protects the back of the seats in your car. A huge bonus if you have a kicky baby, like I do.
I was talking with one of the grandmothers-to-be, and she confided in me that she’ll buy the Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 for her daughter before she has the baby since she really likes it.
Also, the Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 is available exclusively at 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.
