Graco Review

It's important to plan ahead when you have a child.  Even though my daughter isn't born yet, I've purchased things that she will use in time like larger sized clothes and toys, to be specific.  Being prepared is something that I think is essential in life.  I am very much looking forward to when she's born and able to use everything I have ready for her!

Graco is the headquarters for everything and anything you could need for baby.  This brand is surely one of the few that instantly come to mind when I think of baby products.  Graco's product line-up includes strollers, high chairs, pack 'n play, car seats, swings, and more. The best part about Graco is that their products transition with your child as they age and grow, so you really get many years of use from them.  I've been recommended Graco products throughout my pregnancy by many parents and I can see why they love the brand so much! If you're attending a baby shower in the next few months or know someone who has recently given birth, a Graco gift makes the perfect present. 

My daughter is due in just 10 weeks now! I'm really going into planning overdrive to ensure everything is perfect and ready for her.  In the beginning, I have a travel system that I'll be using for her.  Of course the car seat has a weight limit on it and she'll eventually outgrow it.  Many parents would say they will worry about buying a new car seat when the time is necessary, but why get to that point? I say have one ready to go well before it's needed! Graco's trustworthy and reliable products keep me coming back time and time again.  

Graco generously sent me an Argos 80 Elite 3-in-1 Car Seat.  The best feature about this car seat is that it grows with your child.  Initially, the car seat holds a 20-80 lb forward facing toddler, then transitions into a high back-belt booster for a 30-100 lb child.  If you think that was good enough, just wait! The final transition of the car seat is a backless booster for a 40-120 lb child.  I really can't get over just how many years you'll be able to use this product for.

I'll be with you for years to come. 

This car seat is very attractive and the gender neutral color is ideal if you're using it for multiple children.  I've tested the car seat in the back of my car and it seems extremely secure, realible, and durable. In minutes it was installed and I could easily see how it locks effortlessly into place. It's also compact and doesn't take up a ton of room which is a bonus.  When my daughter outgrows her initial carseat, I will be transitioning her into this one.  Since the car seat grows with her, I'll be able to use this for many years which is beyond convenient.  When the time comes for her to use this car seat, I'll feel very confident and comfortable that she is riding safely in the car. 

A wonderful thing about the seat cushions is that they are removable and washable.  No longer will you have to worry if your child gets sick or spills something, just throw them in the washing machine!  I love anything that's machine washable, it makes my life so much easier.  Some of the other handy features of the car seat include a cup holder and a storage pocket. Let your child enjoy a sippy cup of juice while they play with their toys which were stored in the side pocket.  

If you didn't already know, the car seat features safe seat engineering.  This means that it's engineered and crash-tested to meet or exceed United States safety standards. Hearing this surely makes my mom-to-be mind happy.

I'm very happy with the Graco Argos 80 car seat and look forward to using it for years to come.  If you're currently on the car seat hunt, why not check out what Graco has to offer?
