untill 2?

This weekend I was invited to a safety event sponsored by Graco.  The latest research shows that if you keep a child rear facing until 2 then they are 5 times as likely to survive a car crash.

Think about this: what if you had Five times as much money, cars, clothes or muscles?
How's that perspective for you? This can really make a difference when it comes down to it.  It's not that your a bad driver (I hope).  It's that you and your children are out there with bad drivers, new drivers, in a hurry drivers.  So it's important to do what you can to protect your precious gems.

With this new announcement from the American Academy of Pediatrics came a problem.  What rear facing car seat could fit a 2-year-old?  That's where Graco jumped in.  For your review I give you: "The Graco Snugride" (pause for dramatic effect)

As of now this is the only car seat on the market that can fit a premature baby all the way up to a two-year-old.  So If you want to jump on the safety wagon this is the one to get.

They are very well build, nice quality.  And can I be cheesy and say; that stroller can glide!  You could definitely jog with it.   The Purple fabric I just loved (which can come off and be thrown into the washer) and they have a neutral fabric as well.

Here is a video that demos for you how the seat can adjust for more leg room as the child grows -genius.

  1. As a nurse, I realize how important it is to stay up to date on safety and medicine, and I have to say that this is great! I doubt many people know about this. Thanks for sharing this Jamie!
