Graco Car Seat Inspiring Story #1


We receive letters weekly from grateful moms, dads, grandparents & caregivers who believe Graco car seats have helped save their child’s life. These letters, especially for members of the car seat team (of which I am a part), inspire us to work harder – we hope they inspire you as well. I look forward to sharing letters like these here on the blog.  Check out the story below from this grateful mom – we are so glad that her little guy is safe and sound!

Here’s what she had to say:
I am so pleased with this car seat. My husband, son, and I were just starting out on a long car trip. It had started raining recently and the roads were unusually slick. The car hydroplaned and spun out, and unfortunately hit a barrier on the road. The car was damaged beyond repair. My husband and I were relatively unhurt, except I had a rope burn from my seat belt and my husband wrenched the muscles in his back. But my son, who is two, was unharmed. I am convinced that my son’s car seat saved his life. I am so grateful. I am so glad that my sister-in-law bought this seat for him. I plan on buying a brand new Graco car seat.

Thank you so much,
The Nascimento Family

As long as Graco has been in the car seat business, we have received many letter from families that have been involved in car crashes. In so many of these extraordinary letters families recount their terrible experiences and express their belief that their Graco car seat helped protect their child in a crash.

Although we wish children were never involved in car crashes, we know this is not the case, so we certainly appreciate the gratitude from families whose children were restrained in their Graco car seats during a crash. It is experiences like theirs that keep us working hard to develop and manufacture products that help save childrens lives.

    I believe fully in the power of the car seat and I believe Graco is a wonderful brand but i am having a very hard time getting the right person on the phone to discuss a major medical issue that my 3.5 month old daughter is experiencing as a result of her snug ride infant carrier. Do you know who I can contact?
