For those who know and trust the Graco name, you’ll be extra excited to see their newest addition to the car seat line-up — the only car seat you’ll ever need to buy. Ever.
And we have one to give away!
The Graco Smart Seat can be used for infants, toddlers and big kids (5 to 100 lbs.), facing both backwards and forward. After testing dozens of car seats for our Babble Best: Car Seats feature, I can confidently say that the Graco Smart Seat is one the snuggest convertible car seat fits for newborns, due to its ample padding and side-impact protection, and one of the most comfy rides for toddlers, thanks to its built-in cup holder and arm rests (which my son loves). And the fact that it then transforms into a booster seat makes it one of the smartest baby purchases you can make.
Besides the fact that it’ll span the entire life of your child’s car seat days, the Graco Smart Seat is unique in that it has a stay-in car base, meaning you only have to install the car seat base one time whether you’re using it as a rear-facing, forward-facing or booster car seat. That’s pretty darn convenient. I also love that you can easily adjust the car seat’s recline without having to pop out the seat. In fact, you can adjust the entire car seat — from the head rest to the harness — without rethreading the seat.
We’ve been using this car seat in my mother’s car for about four or five months, and I couldn’t be more pleased. As a rear-facing seat you might need a little extra room, but the forward-facing seat fits comfortably in my mom’s new Civic. See a Graco video and read more about their safety features over at Babies R Us.

CONGRATULATIONS to our winner, Leslie, who will need a convertible car seat when she’s traveling with her daughter to Shriners Hospital. We hope this Graco Smart Seat makes your trip a little easier!
