The base slides out to adjust as your child grows. So Mimi, at 16 months, would be at an 8 recline to give her the most legroom – all while staying rear-facing.
Plus I love the adjustable footrest.
The harness and headrest are also adjustable to accommodate a growing child – and they’re a piece of cake to adjust, too. I remember the older Graco travel system car seats we used with Buddy – to adjust the straps, you had to rethread them, which was complicated and time consuming. With this, I was able to adjust both the hardness and headrest in a matter of seconds – and with only one hand! A bonus, especially when you have a screaming baby and realize it’s time to move up one notch on the car seat.
While Mimi is much too big and heavy to cart around in the carrier, it is nice to have that as an option. There have been so many times when we’ve come home late and Mimi has fallen asleep in her car seat. But she always wakes up (and is usually pissed off!) when we have to unbuckle her to lift her out and bring her inside. Wouldn’t it be nice to lug the carrier (and I use the word “lug” with love; trust me, Mimi + carrier = heavy) into the house and maybe she’d stay asleep?
As you can see, Raggedy Ann is a big fan of the Graco SnugRide Click Connect too!
I will say that if you drive a Mini or another really small car, or if your regular passenger seat companion is very tall and requires lots of leg room in the front, you might run into some space issues, particularly as the child gets bigger and you have to keep extending the seat back. Also, it can only be used with Graco’s Click Connect line of strollers, rather than any of the generic snap-and-gos. So these are a few things you may want to keep in mind.
