When it comes to the car and having a baby in the car, we as parents and caregivers find that we want baby to ride both safely and comfortably. Along with the safety and comfort that we seek for our babies, we also look for those products that are “parent friendly”. I say parent friendly because, well lets face it, when it comes to many of those products we might come across for our little ones, not all are as easy to use or put together. And when you are a new or expecting parent, the lack of sleep from either coming to the end of a pregnancy or pulling those all nighters and days with a new baby can make the installation and assembly of some products, something that we can end up dreading. So when we were introduced to the Graco SnugRide® SnugLock™ 35 DLX Infant Car Seat as part of the Generation Graco program, we were excited to check it out and share what all Heather has found and likes since she started using this amazing car seat with little Zoey!
We were sent the Graco SnugRide® SnugLock™ 35 DLX Infant Car Seat. Graco is a brand we have trusted and used for many years with our kiddos and with that said, I was excited to try out this new infant seat with an easy to install base. This base is about the easiest thing to install for a baby product. There is no need to put your weight into the seat to tighten it down! You just simply place it on your car seat, buckle it in, and just tighten the belt so there isn’t any slack.
Once in place, you pull the bar over the belt and click it into place and it instantly tightens the belt! The level in the base makes it easy to adjust so baby is positioned correctly. I like that the removable newborn head and body supports cradle Zoey and helps keep her safe and comfortable, and that the handle is also easy to put up or down with the one handed button in the center of the handle. I also like that the canopy is quiet and doesn’t wake her when pulling it over her or retracting it. It is a nice light canopy and will shade the sun nicely as well as not making her too warm. Some other additional features:
*SnugLock™ Technology features a hassle-free 3-step installation
*Helps protect rear-facing infants from 4 – 35 lb and up to 32″
*1-hand adjustable handle makes getting in-and-out easy
*Silent Shade™ canopy
*SafetyCore™ impact absorption zone absorbs frontal crash forces
*InRight™ LATCH system for a one-second LATCH attachment
*Adjustable base with 4 recline positions lets you customize fit to your vehicle
*Easy-to-read level indicator helps eliminate installation guesswork
*Removable newborn head and body support cushions baby
+Convenient compartment stores both the LATCH connectors and manual when not in use
*Click Connect™ technology provides one-step secure attachment to Graco Click *Connect strollers and bases
*Lightweight infant carseat for easy carrying
*Be sure to check your local and state laws, as well as AAP and NHTSA recommendations, for car seat usage.
*Engineered & crash tested to meet or exceed US standard FMVSS 213 & side impact tested for occupant retention solely with the built-in 5-point harness system
*EPS, energy absorbing foam for effective impact energy management
Then when it comes to Zoey, I know Zoey will be safe and secure riding in this snug ride seat. This is one of the easiest seats to install and use, and when putting her in the car, you just set the car seat in the base, no need to tip or tilt the seat into place. Very easy to lift off as well, which makes the Graco SnugRide® SnugLock™ 35 DLX Infant Car Seat a infant car seat that I would recommend to any new parent. So if you are thinking of a shower gift, or the car seat you will be going with for your own baby this would be perfect, trust me, because it is easy to use and install.
