Graco has released its new SnugRide Click Connect 40, the only infant carseat on the market that will grow with your child, infant to two years of age.  I had the opportunity to see it in person last weekend at one of their release events at Babies R Us, and it is truly awesome.

The base for this seat has an 8-position recline that will allow you to adjust it to accomodate your child’s growing legs.  There is a footrest that slides up into position to protect your backseat upholstery from your child’s feet.  It has a removable padding insert for your infant that can be easily taken out as your child grows.  And the feature that I was most excited about?  You can adjust the height of the harness with one hand – without removing the lining of the seat.  Simply squeeze a button in the back of the carseat, and slide up or down.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) reports that children are FIVE TIMES safer when rear-facing until two years of age.  That’s huge!

Graco has also released its first Click Connect stroller, and it is equally awesome. This thing literally takes one second to fold.  With one hand.

After seeing this seat and getting to play around with it, I know that this is what we’ll be buying for Baby Deuce.  I don’t think I could settle for something less awesome. 🙂

A big thank you to Graco and Babies R Us for this great release event, and to Darcy, @Syrana, for being a wonderful host!  The SnugRide Click Connect 40 is sold exclusively at Babies R Us.

I did not receive compensation in exchange for this post.  The thoughts and opinions above are my own.
