Too much fun! Graco & Babies “R” Us Event Wrap Up and GIVEAWAY

 

Shuttling tweens to soccer, karate, school, parties and everything in between translates into a lot of use for the younger sibling’s car seat.  While safety is a top priority, so is portability and functionality.  That’s why I was so excited to host an informative session on Graco’s SnugRide Click Connect 40 at the Babies “R” Us in Miami this past Saturday.

My c0-host Ana from Miami Mommy Savings and I were thrilled to see all of the moms, soon-to-be moms and blogger amigas who came out to learn all about the great features of this new car seat.  The Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 is the only car seat that keeps baby rear facing from birth to 2 years.  It’s also extremely portable and has the ability to safely click right into Graco strollers.  The seat adjusts to 8 different positions as baby grows.  And it has a foot protector to keep the older babies from dirtying the seats in the car – a feature that my husband absolutely LOVES!

In 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a statement urging parents to keep children rear facing until the age of 2 for safety reasons.  This was definitely news to me when I went shopping for our youngest member of the Los Tween’s family’s car seat last year.  Being a mom of three, I can truly appreciate with the SnugRide Click Connect40 moms won’t have to install another car seat for at least two years and baby will be safe.

After learning all about the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40, we played a fun trivia game, took a few photos, answered questions and picked our car seat winners.  Our second winner of the day was so excited she hugged the car seat!

Laura, winner of the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40, was so excited she gave the car seat a hug!

I also have to add a special “THANK YOU” to the Babies “R” Us Coral Way team for working so hard to make the event a great success.  We even had their “Car Seat King Carlos” (a name I gave him) on hand to help answer any questions on car seat installation.

AND, last but not least, GIVEAWAY!!!  Babies “R” Us is so fantastic that they are giving away a $25.00 gift card to our readers.  To enter, comment on this post with one reason you love being or are looking forward to being a mom.  Limit one comment per person.  Giveaway ends on Thursday, November 1, 2012at midnight EST.  Winner will be chosen using Random.org and will be contacted via email.

The Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 – the first and only newborn to two-year infant car seat that actually grows with your baby from four pounds all the way up to 40 pounds. The car seat is designed for a parent on the go. The infant car seat can be easily removed from the base and used as a carrier when the infant is small, providing portability and convenience so you can easily move your infant in and out of the car without disturbing them.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recently made the recommendation to keep all children in rear-facing car seats until the age of 2. Graco set out to make this product so parents can keep infants rear facing longer while still keeping them comfortable.

Ana and I with all of the fabulous moms!
