Last week I had the honor of attending an event, sponsored by Graco with some pretty fabulous Boston area bloggers. The event was held at MiniLuxe Wellsely and gave us all a much needed Mom’s Night Out!
My mom came over at 4, and I headed out to Wellsely (giving myself 2 and a half hours to go 55 miles. Because, you just never know what kind of traffic you’ll hit on 95) When I arrived (and hour and a half early) I spent some time driving around the area and wishing I lived there. Wellsely is GORGEOUS!
When I walked in to MiniLuxe I was greeted by Charlene, the event host, from Charlene Chronicles. We chatted, and soon the rest of the bloggers started filtering in. It was so nice to chat with other bloggers who were also moms with children around the same age as Avery. Once everyone had arrived, we circled ’round to learn more about the Graco® SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40. This car seat is the only infant car seat that provides rear-facing protection for babies from birth to 2 years old, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. The infant car seat grows with babies from four pounds up to 40 pounds, so parents can keep their children rear facing longer, while making sure they stay comfortable as they grow.
While learning about the Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40we had some delicious treats from AltaStrada, and then I had the greatest manicure of my life. (Seriously, I’ve never had a manicure last more than one day, and this one lasted a full week before I got my first chip!
We got to take home a car seat, and I couldn’t be happier! Avery is starting to really loath her infant seat so we’ve been looking to upgrade her to something a bit bigger.
It comes in two really nice prints, Mena (pink) and Moonstruck (grey) and is only available at Babies R Us ($219.99)
I was really excited by the Simply Safe AdjustTM harness system. It allows parents to adjust the harness and headrest with just one hand to fit their baby’s height as their baby grows, all without having to re-thread the harness for extra convenience. Another great feature is the kick plate. I’m kind of crazy about my seats staying clean, so this is amazing!
I really can’t say enough about how cool this car seat is! I can’t wait to get it installed in our car this weekend, so Avery can give it her full review!! Thanks Graco, MiniLuxe Wellsely, AltaStrada and of course Charlene for such a fabulous night!
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.
