Graco Click Connect 40 Baby Car Seat Review

Getting ready for a baby can be a lot of work  – even when you aren’t pregnant and waiting on an adoption! 🙂 There are SO many decisions to make, and we are trying to find as much baby gear as we can that is multi-functional so it lasts longer. We know kids grow out of things – and fast! The Graco Click Connect 40 is a great option for those who are looking for something to last a little longer. Product received for review.

Graco Click Connect 40 Baby Car Seat

The Click Connect 40 from Graco comes in two color options as of right now, I chose the one that was as gender neutral as possible since we don’t know what is headed our way yet! The base was easy to install (as I am sure many are these days) – but unique in that I can adjust the recline of the seat, so as my child gets older, I can move the seat into more of a sitting position – and, it even has a foot rest so they don’t get the car seat dirty with their little shoes when they start to walk! Now that it is recommended that children are rear facing until 2- it is a great option from birth until 2 (or 40lbs whichever you have come first!) and the ONLY infant seat that is made for children from birth to 2 years. The only complaint I can come up with is that the car seat base (if you want to buy an extra one for another car) is kind of pricey at $74.99.

One of the features I like the most is that you can adjust the height of the straps from the back – so no taking out and re-threading – you just grab a lever and pull! I had read reviews of car seats that you practically had to take the whole thing apart to the screws and plastic before you could change the height of the straps – this way it is SO easy! The cool thing about the click connect is that it is a simple one click and you are done with connecting the car seat to the stroller, car seat to the base, etc. You can find out more about the Click Connect 40 at Graco’s website or buy it from BabiesRUs.

  1. This looks like a great car seat to get you through transitional periods. I found that the one we used didn’t recline very well.

  2. LOL, I love how you put the stuffed animal in there!

  3. I LOVE this car seat. I tested it out a few times and loved it!

  4. Graco is and always been one of the more popular choices of Mom’s and this looks like a great choice!

  5. The footrest is pure genius!
