Graco’s Spring Get One Give One #4 – In Honor of Mom!

For our final Graco Get One Give One this spring, today’s gift and donation is one of my personal favorites, a Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Car Seat!

The Graco Nautilus grows with your child, keeping her secure in a 5-point harness up to 65 lbs. When she’s ready, it converts to a belt-positioning booster from 30-100 lbs.

From there, the Nautilus transitions into either a Highback or Backless booster for a comfortable fit up to 100 lbs. Extensively crash tested, including side-impact testing, outfitted with reinforced steel and thoughtfully designed with plush comfort features, this 3-in-1 car seat is will last your little travel companion well into childhood.

Check out this video that gives some basic steps on how to install the Graco Nautilus Car Seat with a 5-point harness:

Tell us about a mom in need (or an organization that helps moms in need) that you would like to honor this Mother’s Day and you could win one for you, and one for them.

For this GOGO, you have all weekend to enter! We’ll announce the winner at 9:00 a.m. Monday morning.

To all of the moms out there who give everything they have to be the best parent possible (the sweat, sacrifice, kind words and cuddles) — THANK YOU from all of us at Graco and Happy Mother’s Day.

*Comments are now closed. Thanks to everyone who participated. The winner is Justine McD! Justine, Graco will be in touch shortly to get you (and your husband’s best friend!) your prize!

    I definitely need a carseat since I only have the infant one, but I’d like to donate the other one to They provide some fantastic services to the community (many are free!) and have been doing so for over 25 years!

    i would love to receive one of these and then have the other donated to the KyleDavidMillerFoundation, for them to give to a needing family. I have been blessed by them and would love to pay it forward for the. :) thanks

    I need one of these for my second baby. Money is so tight right now, I have no idea how we will buy one! I would nominate a friend of mine who is pregnant with their 3rd and will need a new car before they have their baby in July. Money is very tight for them and they are very loving parents, I would love to be able to give them such a nice gift!

  5. Cristy Kluender May 7, 2010 at 12:19 pm #

    I would like to nominate my best friend. They need a safe carseat that will last! We have one of these for my son, and I would love to have one for my daughter! Such a great seat, and very comfy! Would love for her daughter and mine to be so safe too!

  6. Kathleen May 7, 2010 at 12:20 pm #

    I could use this carseat because here shortly I will be having my 3rd child and I need another seat. The other one I would gladly donate to my girlfriend who is a single mom and having a few hardships.

  7. becky (@lolagoetz) May 7, 2010 at 12:20 pm #

    I could definitely use this. I love the Graco 3-in-1 we already have & we actually need a 2nd one.

    I would donate to Help a Mother Out, an org that one of my friends helps promote & that many of my Twitter friends have donated to. It’s a great org that donates items to mothers in need.

  8. Amanda Huff May 7, 2010 at 12:24 pm #

    I just bought one of these for my daughter but my son could really use a new seat as well. I would like to see my friend Lisa recieve one for her daughter so her baby on the way can inherit the older ones seat :)

  9. Karla Hurraw May 7, 2010 at 12:25 pm #

    I am 7 months pregnant with my first child and I have been having complications since 20 weeks and have been on bedrest. I was planning on working my fulltime job until I had the baby, so having to go 5 months not working had been hard on us. I would love to have this carseat for when the baby gets bigger, and give the other one to my sister who is about to have her third child.

  10. Jessica Cadena May 7, 2010 at 12:26 pm #

    I would LOVE to donate this to a good friend of mine! Car seat safety is my passion, and I’ve tried to talk her into putting her 4 year old son back into a harness, and she just cannot afford it. I absolutely love the Graco Nautilus! What a great seat!

  11. Angela Smith May 7, 2010 at 12:27 pm #

    I could definitely use this. We have 3 Nautilus seats for our daughter (one in my car, one in my husband’s, and one in grandma’s). My son is 15 months old. It won’t be long until he will need a seat like this too!

    I would give the other one to my sister, who is in the same situation ; )

  12. Christine Clauto May 7, 2010 at 12:27 pm #

    I would donate the carseat to my local Catholic Charities- they help support mothers in need with supplies and support.

  13. Amy Waters May 7, 2010 at 12:27 pm #

    I’d love to win a Nautilus, it is a fantastic seat for keeping kids harnessed longer than the minimum. I think it would be great for the Kyle David Miller Foundation ( ) to get one b/c they help moms (and families) who are in need of carseats with higher weight limits, for children who have reached the limit of their seat but are not old enough for a booster or for those that simply are still not mature enough, or just to keep children harnessed as long as possible since it is safer. they are a wonderful organization and they would be sure that this seat would go to a family who truly needs it.

  14. Justine McD. May 7, 2010 at 12:28 pm #

    I would love for my husbands best friend to get one of these. She just went through a nasty year long divorce, and is now threatened with loosing her house and has no extra money to buy her kids newer nicer seats (5yrs old and 3yrs old). She is s a strong woman and always makes sure her kids have the best and I would love to help her have the best carseat.

  15. Jenny Culhane May 7, 2010 at 12:28 pm #

    My husband and I are tight for money. I am currently looking for a new job and he attends school full-time. My son will soon outgrow his carseat. We are expecting a new baby in December. I would donate this other carseat to a friend of mine that is a single mom. She does an amazing job. Thank you. Happy Mother’s Day to all!

  16. Amanda May 7, 2010 at 12:31 pm #

    I would give this to a friend who gave me EVERYTHING she had from her daughter and son, because she was told she could not have kids again, and is not pregnant with her third and has nothing for them. She works so hard to make money but it barely covers her rent or bills. I would love to give her the gift of a brand new 3 in 1 carseat from graco and make sure she has one less thing to worry about for her new baby

  17. Kristen May 7, 2010 at 12:34 pm #

    I would love for my friend to win this! If I understand correctly, I get and she gets one – well – I think she could use them both so I would gladly give them both to her. I already have 3 Graco Nautilus’ and LOVE them. They were so easy to install in my 15 passenger Ford van. They are easy to adjust as my kids get bigger and all my kids love them. My 9 yr old who is in a high back booster was asking for me to get her one to use in booster mode because she found it so much better than her current seat!

    Anyway, my good friend quit her job to work full time (and then some) caring for her mother after she had a stroke. Her job is 24/7 as caregiver. On top of this – she is single mom to a 13 year old boy and a 2yr old boy she adopted out of the foster care system. She works so hard to make sure that both those boys have everything they need and has never accepted any assistance, be it government or otherwise. And then! She decided to open her foster license again, and she has been fostering a little boy who is also 2. She’s had him for over a year. When he became available for adoption she learned that his older sister who is 8 and lives elsewhere would be available for adoption too. So – she immediately went and bought a bigger house to accomodate her as well. She selflessly gives of herself to take care of not only her mother but her children and children in need that are in state car.

    I think, given this is a Mother’s Day contest that nobody would deserve to win these seats more than her. Her two year and a half year olds are just about outgrown their convertable seats and I know she has been worried about what to replace them with. She is a great mom and a great daughter for putting her life on hold while she cares for her own mom.

  18. Sara Phillips May 7, 2010 at 12:36 pm #

    I would love to win for my sister! She will be a first time mom very soon and she deserves only the best!

  19. Amy Franklin May 7, 2010 at 12:40 pm #

    I would love to be able to give this awsome car seat to my Aunt who is looking into adopting the baby she has been fostering. Fostering serivces cant offer parents much when it comes to this type of thing and being that my uncle is a preacher in a small church this would be a great gift.

  20. Amber Barraco May 7, 2010 at 12:45 pm #

    Just recently one of my former students became a mother of a precious baby girl at just 27 weeks gestation. After a very bumpy ride in the NICU, she finally was able to take little Sadie home. She is a young, single mother, and has little to no support from
    her family. I recently sent her diapers in the mail and she was so unbelievably appreciative. I would love more than anything to be able to send this car seat to her. Not only would it be incredibly useful, but it would remind her that there are people out there who love her and want to help. Please choose this young lady as the recipient. This is my third day in a row trying to win her something. If you knew her like I do, you would know how deserving she is. Thanks

  21. lorena May 7, 2010 at 12:50 pm #

    My nomination for a Nautilus car seat is my friend Kristin. She has four children and a loving husband. She stays at home with the children and makes cloth diapers to sell online to help out with the family and to also help the environment. Her husband works full time and is also the minister at their church. Recently Kristin was in the hospital for two weeks with pneumonia and then her youngest child visited the emergency room due to strep throat. This has put a financial damper on their situation. I would love to see this car seat go to Kristin because she has a 20 month old son who would benefit greatly from it and she and her family have been through rough times. The nautilus would be a fantastic car seat for this family because it will grow with their son and they will not have to find a way to invest in yet ANOTHER car seat down the road. I know that this family would be grateful and thankful for such a wonderful gift from such a wonderful company.

  22. Breanne Clemmensen May 7, 2010 at 12:55 pm #

    I would donated one to my friend because she is using an old carseat that doesn’t even have a expiration date since she can’t afford a new one. She figures any car seat is better than none. So that what she uses. So I would love to be able to give her this so her child could be safer. Thanks for your awesome give a ways. We all appreciate them and hope to be the winner. My little boy would also love this seat.

  23. Brenda May 7, 2010 at 1:06 pm #

    I would give one to my sister. Her almost 3 year old is almost out growing her current seat and they could use this for her and pass down the seat she is currently using to their 1 year old. I would also love this car seat because I have a 2 yr old that is riding in an almost expired car seat.

  24. Brandi May 7, 2010 at 1:14 pm #

    I would like to nominate my friend who recently found out she is pregnant with her 2nd baby, her first one will be one in July so you can understand how suprising the news is to her, both her and her husband served in the military and are struggling right now with school and parenthood, not to mention they are newlyweds too so life has taken them by suprise and their new family could def use this great car seat, and I could too, I was just last night researching this same exact car seat to buy but it is sort of out my budget for awhile, I was laid off of my job of 10 years a month before I found out I was pregnant so money is tight for us too. thank you for this great promotion, it is wonderful!

  25. Christina May 7, 2010 at 1:23 pm #

    I would really like one of these for my son. I would keep one for him and give the other one to a local shelter for battered woman with kids in our area. These are great seats.

  26. Gaitha May 7, 2010 at 1:23 pm #

    I would love to win one not only for me, but to donate to our local crisis pregnancy center. Thanks!

  27. john May 7, 2010 at 1:30 pm #

    I would like to win this to give it to a needy family in my area. thanks

  28. Jordan Barraza May 7, 2010 at 1:39 pm #

    I would love to honor both my sister in law’s one has her daughter and my nephew whose the size to be in a 3-1 and I been wanting to get him one cause i love Graco products and shes also pregnant with my nephew Kaden. And my other sister in law is pregnant with her first baby a little girl and she would love this since she has been working hard to get everything since my brother his job has been real slow so there sending people home early so she’s been working 2 jobs I think they both would love this and it would honor them as moms and soon to be moms. They both have gone trough so much last year and have made strides trough it. This would mean so much to give this to them for the kids since I have been wanting to get them both this seat cause I love it and have read so many reviews being happy with it. Thanks Graco your a great company doing these give away and being out there in our reach to talk to and listen. Proud Auntie

  29. Jessica E May 7, 2010 at 1:47 pm #

    I would love to donate this to the sally house. It is a shelter for abused children and alot of the times they get to the shelter all they have is the clothes on there back.

  30. Mimi May 7, 2010 at 1:47 pm #

    I have been looking forward to buying the Nautilus 3-in-1 for my Grandson Breydan…he is small for his age,only 34 lbs and 4yrs old.So far the price is a bit too high for me since I am un-employed at the moment.If I won I would give the other one to The Toledo Childrens Hospital..I know they would pass it on to a needy family.

  31. Jessica E May 7, 2010 at 1:52 pm #

    I also put it on my twitter. Twitter name is JEllis30.

  32. Rachel May 7, 2010 at 1:55 pm #

    I would love to win one of these for myself and my best friend. I have a three year old who is still in a car seat and I just had another baby five months ago who would love to have a brand new car seat, with only one income right now it is kind of hard to go out and buy her a new car seat when it is time for her to switch out of her Graco infant seat. My best friend is due in September with another baby and she recently lost her job and has a four year old as well. During these tough economic times we are trying to get by with what we have but it is difficult. This car seat would be a great surprise for her at her baby shower!

  33. Amy W May 7, 2010 at 1:58 pm #

    There is a local women’s center Miami Valley Women’s Center and they help moms in all situations that are struggling. I would give the seat to them.

  34. Kyra May 7, 2010 at 2:04 pm #

    I would give this to my sister. Her little man is outgrowing his infant seat fast, and once he is old enough, he will be needing a new seat! I could also use one, because my son is outgrowing his convertible as well! What an AWESOME giveaway!

  35. Kristy May 7, 2010 at 2:08 pm #

    I would love to have one of these for our second & I would give the other one to my good Mommy friend who is delivering her second baby this Wednesday. I know she would love to get such a great car seat.

  36. Amy May 7, 2010 at 2:09 pm #

    My husband was hit by a car last year and lost his job, I lost my job trying to take care of him, and then we lost our home, and had to move in with my disabled mother.I found out I was pregnant with our second child less than a month later, the local church threw me a baby shower and paid off my layaway so that I could have my infant carseat (graco snugride) but he is fast approaching over 22 lbs and NEEDS a carseat and I would love to get this one on my own but it’s outside my price range although it was my first pick.

  37. Amy May 7, 2010 at 2:12 pm #

    and I nominate my best friends little sister who had her second child at only 17 and gets everything they have from goodwill. I think she would faint if she got one.

  38. Hilary May 7, 2010 at 2:25 pm #

    I would like to donate this to the Kyle David Miller Foundation. This car seat can help keep an older child safer in a 5-point harness.

  39. Kristen May 7, 2010 at 2:33 pm #

    I’d love this for my sister. She has 2 children and has already moved my neice to a booster despite my pleading to keep her in a harness car seat. With this I could just give it to her and she’d have no excuse to not use it! ;)

  40. KathyD May 7, 2010 at 3:12 pm #

    I am 7.5 months pregnant with my first child and would love to have one of these for my baby. I’d like to donate the other seat to Help A Mother Out to help someone in need.

  41. Amber May 7, 2010 at 3:22 pm #

    I would like to win this for my friend who has a son 2 months older than my daughter. They don’t have a lot of money and I know this would be a safer car seat than the one they have.

  42. Krysten Glor May 7, 2010 at 3:22 pm #

    I think it’d be great to donate some carseats to the Alternatives for Battered Women non-profit agency/shelter, for those moms that just have to leave and don’t have anything. Of course I love that it grows with the child, with my oldest I’ve already been through 2 seats and it’s very annoying!

  43. Marcy May 7, 2010 at 3:25 pm #

    I would love one for my cousin in law…lol. My cousin is a marine and is going to be deployed soon. We have babies 1 month apart so i know if we win this it would brighten up her day while he is away! She is a wonderful strong mama!

  44. Laura B May 7, 2010 at 4:07 pm #

    I’d honor Giraffe Laugh! The non-profit day care that treats all kids like a loving mom, when mom can’t be there! They do great things for kids!

  45. Gretchen May 7, 2010 at 4:18 pm #

    I would donate my a carseat to my friend Julia who was a wonderful support system for me while my husband was deployed. Her son is growing like a weed and will need a new car seat soon! I will use the carseat for my new little man that is on the way!!!

  46. William May 7, 2010 at 4:28 pm #

    Giraffe Laugh for sure! (Thanks to others for letting me know about this) They need all the help they can get. Providing day care for low-income kids is a noble venture.

  47. ginalopez May 7, 2010 at 5:13 pm #

    OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH! I have been wanting this seat for my daughter. We are going to turn her forward facing on her 2nd Bday in July. I would give the other seat to my friend in our play group. She only works part time, her husband was laid off and they crashed their car. They are still using the seat that was involved in the crash. (A BIG NO-NO) They can’t afford a new seat and would so love this seat!

  48. Jill May 7, 2010 at 5:21 pm #

    I would love to donate to my daycare provider! That way I know that my little one will be safe when traveling without me! With Graco, I know I don’t have to worry :)

  49. Stacey Giester May 7, 2010 at 5:33 pm #

    I will definetly need this car seat for my son in a few months, I am starting the nursing program at our local community college and money will be tight when he is ready to upgrade. I have no idea how we will be able to buy another car seat. I would give the other to a cousin of mine who is expecting twins she will need two of everything! I would really appreciate this as would my cousin. Thanks Graco!

  50. NAN LARA May 7, 2010 at 6:07 pm #

    i would love this for my son who needs a booster and i too would donate the other to the childrens group in town.thanks for the chance
