Not only a legal obligation
There are few things more important in parenting than buying the correct car seat for a child. Not only is it a legal obligation, but parents that care for their children are also rightly worried about the safety of their baby while traveling in a car. While it is easy to buy second-hand items such as cots or strollers, the same is not true for car seats.
They need to be bought brand new, because all of the fittings need to be perfect in order to provide the child with the right protection in the event of an accident. This makes finding a car seat which is practical and reliable is twice as important.
One of the most popular available on the market, Graco Snugride infant car seat products are designed to be affordable, easy to handle, and able to support young children while they are riding in the backwards facing position. The popularity of the Snugride model, and the fact that more children than ever are being transported in them, seems not to have been affected by Graco’s decision to change the name of its popular models. These include:
- Snugride Classic Connect
- Snugride Classic Connect 30
- Snugride Classic Connect 35
- Snugride Click Connect 35 and 35 LX
- Snugride Click Connect 40
These options are all based upon the same style, which is the Snugride model. The model has specific features which defines the whole series.
The most important feature
The most important feature of the Snugride system is the security. Safety features play a big part in influencing parents’ decisions when it comes to buying a car seat, and the Snugride plays to that audience with infant head supports to contain impacts, and it is also fully crash-tested, ensuring that it is approved by the government and can withstand a certain impact. The 5-point harness is another popular feature which ensures that the baby can be moved in and out of the car easily. LATCH systems support the baby, and the Snugride can be matched to the Graco stroller models, so travel systems can be created.
The Grace Snugride 30
The Graco Snugride 30 has been recommended by many experts, and it remains the car seat to beat when it come to providing a great travel system. It is also consistently good at matching with car bases to provide support and protection. It is also very lightweight, probably one of the most lightweight models available, which is perfect for parents who need to carry the seat in one hand and the child in the other. It is also designed to be comfortable for the baby, including having adjustable and removable parts which allow children to sit facing backwards for longer. Most children will confirm that backwards-facing is most comfortable for them, so it is a good buy for those reasons.
The Greco Snugride infant car seat family
The Greco Snugride infant car seat family is intended to allow parents to get the most from their car seat, without having to pay additional costs for a stroller carrier. This is an important consideration when looking at the cost of a product. There are, however, still some significant differences between the different models available. For example, the Click Connect 40 model is designed to have 8 levels of infant recline, which allows the parent to recline the seat to come into contact with the front seat, or to allow the infant to recline further back in the seat. This is a good idea if the child is outgrowing the seat, but needs to be forward-facing for a few more months.
Click Connect system
The Click Connect system also has a feature which is not found on the Classic Connect Graco Snugride infant car seat system, and that is the Level indicator on the base. This makes sure that the seat is in line with the level of the car, and allows parents to check that the seat is correctly positioned before they drive off. As older children might want to be sitting more upright, this level indicator is age-adjusted, so that parents can make sure the child and the seat are secure, no matter what age the child is. This is another feature of the Graco system which has proven very popular with parents.
