As a new mama, when it first came time to buy the perfect carseat for Naiya, I was totally lost.  There were so many options out there at all different price points and I remember feeling totally overwhelmed! If you’re on the hunt for the perfect carseat and are feeling the same way, this post is for you! Sharing the affordable carseat brand that’s been a lifesaver for us since Naiya was born.  Excited to also share how it’s grown with Naiya throughout the first almost two years of her life.

The Carseat We’re Loving

If you’re on the hunt for a new carseat for your toddler, look no further than the Graco 4Ever DLX 4-in-1 Convertible Carseat. We love that it’s affordable and comfortable but most importantly, it has such a high safety rating, it makes this anxious mama breathe just a little bit easier.

We’ve been using the Graco carseat and stroller system since Naiya was born and we’ve never looked back.

We brought her home from the hospital in a Graco baby carrier that doubled as a car seat when it clicked into a Graco base in our car.

When Naiya grew out of it, we moved over to the Graco 4Ever carseat and she’s been loving it! My favorite part is that her head is fully supported with cushions on both sides. Whenever she falls asleep in the car (aka my own personal heaven), her head doesn’t roll forward. That’s been an issue some of our friends have been having with their carseats and I’m thankful I don’t have to worry about it. Naiya used this carseat on one of our long road trips recently (more about that here) and it was a lifesaver!

We can’t believe we’re getting so close to needing to turn Naiya’s carseat around so that she’s facing the front of the car! Likewise, this carseat will continue to grow with her through the next few stages. I swear, this girl is 22 months going on 18–time needs to slow down!

What’s Your Favorite Carseat Brand?

Mamas: have you tried Graco products before? Do you have a favorite type of carseat and/or brand you’d like to share? If so, I’d love to hear! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!
