I made a BIG parenting mistake this year….
Like so many other parents, when my son turned one, we turned him around into a forward-facing car seat. It was what we did for our daughter back in 2010, and as far as I knew, it was still safe – and legal – to have your child forward-facing as long as he was 12 months or 20 pounds.
I was wrong.
Back in 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics put out new recommendations for infants and car seats. They recommend that children remain rear-facing in the car until 2.
Two years old.
The problem was that our son was HUGE! He was almost 30 pounds, and he was so long his legs were scrunched up in the back of the car.
We turned him around.
Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 To the Rescue
The Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 is the ONLY infant car seat that provides rear-facing protection for babies from birth to 2 years old.
It has a 4 to 40 pound weight limit – a full two years! And its base adjusts with eight recline positions for most leg room in any rear-facing car seat.
And, my favorite feature, it has the Simply Safe Adjust harness system, which allows parents to adjust the harness and headrest with just one hand to fit the baby’s height as he grows. No more re-threading the harness every time you need to adjust the setting!
Actually, now that I think about it, that is probably my husband’s favorite feature – he usually gets the car-seat adjustment job!
