Wow, what a weekend!
Saturday I had the honor of hosting the #GracoSafety events at the Niles, IL Babies R Us. Along with my assistant, the adorable Keely, we introduced bloggers, friends and Babies R Us customers to the Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 - the ONLY rear facing car seat from 4-40 pounds and up to 2 years!
All I can say about the Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 is that I really, really, really, really, really wish it would be have around 6 years ago when we were registering for infant car seats. At the time we purchased the top of the line Graco Sungride that went up to 22 pounds. But that was also the before the American Academy of Pediatrics changed their recommendation to stay rear facing until 2 years old. Did you know your child is 5 times safer riding rear facing?
Ok, back to the event... Keely and I along with our friendly Babies R Us store manager, Wes, set up for the #GracoSafety event with snacks and waited to guests to arrive. While waiting we familiarized ourselves with the new Graco Click Connect products. The "Click Connect" refers to the one click technology that makes snapping the car seat into the Click Connect stroller a breeze - perfect for the busy parents on the go.
What really stands out about the Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 is the adjustable base that has 8 different positions to let you adjust the amount of leg room and angle of the seat as the baby grows. With two tall children of my own, it was difficult to keep them rear facing until 2 because they looked so scrunched and uncomfortable back there! The Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 offers plenty of leg room and event a little pull out place for kids to rest their feet and also protects your seats from getting kicked!
The best part of the #GracoSafety events this past weekend was the opportunity to give away TWO Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 car seats to lucky guests. I'll admit the room got a little tense when announcing the winners, but the winners were thrilled with their prizes and it felt great to make two lucky women's days brighter!
Now here's how you can be a winner! To celebrate the launch of the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 sold exclusively at Babies R Us, we are giving one lucky winner a $25 Babies R Us Gift Card!
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.
