The Graco Nautilus™ 3-in-1 Car Seat in the Bravo™ fashion — the car seat that parents have been searching for is here. Our Nautilus™ 3-in-1 car seat helps keep your child secure in a 5-point harness, from 20-65 lbs.

When she’s ready, it converts to a belt-positioning booster from 30-100 lbs. And as she continues to grow, the Nautilus grows with her, transitioning 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 will last your little travel companion well into childhood.

We can’t wait to hear your stories. Come back on Monday to find out all of our winners!!

    1 for the hubby for his vehicle so he doesn’t have to keep carrying the pink one around- and then one for UVA Children’s Hospital. I would actually probably then find someone to give the pink one to as well :)

    I would love to win a Graco Nautilus for our Safe Kids coalition. I volunteer with Safe Kids Huron Valley here and MI and we do not have a lot of funding for seats and a high weight harness seat like the Graco Nautilus would be great to have on hand for a family that needed it.

  3. Sarah Allen June 17, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I’d give the seat to my local SafeKids coalition. I am a CPST and have worked with them at seat checks and they do not have any higher weight harnessing seat available usually.

  4. Jennifer Sullivan June 17, 2011 at 10:21 am #

    I would keep one for a spare since when we go anywhere in hubby’s car I have to swap our Nauti’s over every time. We go somewhere in his car about 2-4 times a week. It gets to be a pain to move both those seats every single time with them being so heavy and bulky. And I would give the other one to a dear friend who is a single mom of 5 with children ranging in ages 9 to almost 1 year old twins.

    I would love to see my new nephew in a harnessed booster! He is coming from Peru and is 4 years old but is 36″ tall where my 2.5 year old is 35″. This would be an awesome blessing for my inlaws!

  6. Joanie June 17, 2011 at 10:23 am #

    One would be great for hubby’s car and the other to our local SafeKids coalition!!

  7. Kyndal June 17, 2011 at 10:24 am #

    I would put one on my husband’s car for our 4 year old. The other I would donate to the university ofKansas hospital where I work as a cpst. We have few resources for high weight limit seats and a population which often only has a lap belt in the back seat so they can’t use a booster. Thanks!

  8. katie klein June 17, 2011 at 10:24 am #

    I would love to win one of these for my BFF who is due the end of July. She works hard and a car seat would really help her out.

  9. Marci Cottrill June 17, 2011 at 10:24 am #

    Getting the seat would mean alot to us right now. We will be having to buy a new one pretty soon and were in a tight spot with affording one that we would like to use after losing a job. Our daughter is in her infant carrier and we will be switching her over to the convertible seat to rear face her. She is so small we feel its best that she is one rear facing for quite some time.

  10. Steffani June 17, 2011 at 10:26 am #

    I need a booster for my 4 year old that will keep him harnessed longer. I would also like to donate one to a local charity.

  11. Sarah June 17, 2011 at 10:26 am #

    I would give one of these seats to a friend that I know is using an expired backless booster seat on her child who is still too young to be in this type of seat. I would give the other one to another friend who’s child is just about ready to be in this type of seat and they can’t afford to buy one.

    Thanks!

  12. Emma June 17, 2011 at 10:27 am #

    I’m a CPST and would love to have a Nautilus for demonstration/loaner. And I often work with R-12 Charities, they help families with automotive needs that can’t afford it themselves. Thanks Graco!

  13. Stacie June 17, 2011 at 10:29 am #

    My husband recently lost his job and we have four kids. We would love to have this carseat for our youngest. I would like to give the other one to my nephew.

  14. Jeannine m June 17, 2011 at 10:30 am #

    I would donate this to the HArvest House. A local charity that collects items to give to families in need

  15. Julia June 17, 2011 at 10:31 am #

    My kids father needs a new seat for my daughter because she’s about to outgrow the crappy cosco combination seat and I know that he won’t get her a new one because he is too cheap. He seriously would continue to use it after she outgrows it because he doesn’t care. I would hate for something to happen to either child because they outgrew thier seats.

  16. Sarah M June 17, 2011 at 10:32 am #

    I would love to give one to my friend who is pregnant with her first baby! I would also love one for my newest addition, he is one month old and currently in a graco hand-me-down from his older brother but it is going to expire before he grows out of it!

  17. Heather June 17, 2011 at 10:32 am #

    I would give one to burn hospital near us for use in their van for the patients and families.

  18. Kristen Cavanaugh June 17, 2011 at 10:33 am #

    This would be a perfect car seat for my mother in law. She has two grandchildren that would benefit from riding in this and she wouldn’t have to switch out the car seats in her car!!! Pick her…she deserves it!

  19. Kim June 17, 2011 at 10:33 am #

    I would use it for my car so my son can move into a bigger seat. He’s in a Graco my ride and could use more room. I’d give the other one to my friend who has a 7 month old and will need a bigger car seat in a few months :)

  20. Jessica Ellis June 17, 2011 at 10:34 am #

    I would use one for my 22 month old son since the big carseat we had was in a car accident and we had to dispose of it and we are now using a friends until we can get a new one. I would give the other one to all children’s hospital.

  21. Casey C June 17, 2011 at 10:35 am #

    This would be great for my 3 yr old who is still RF but soon he will be going FF and doesnt have a car seat with a high harness height to FF in…I would give the other to a woman who I saw with her 1.5 yr old in a booster seat :(

  22. Erika Faile June 17, 2011 at 10:37 am #

    I would give one to a dear friend who is actually having her 3rd son today. Her husband left and she is laid off so she is barely surviving to make ends meet. She is using a car seat that in my eyes is not all that GREAT. I myself am 8 months pregnant and am struggling but I have and always will care more bout others. I rather see her have and get the things she needs…she is in more need that I am. Thank you for this opportunity and God Bless!!!

  23. Jennifer K June 17, 2011 at 10:41 am #

    I live close to Joplin, MO. I would love to see victims of this terrible storm receive this carseat (and other Graco products??). Some of these people have lost everything!

  24. brittne June 17, 2011 at 10:43 am #

    Well, I dont want to sound gready or anything , I would use it for myself , I Am about to pop. And have been struggling to find things I need for babe ..

    I would love one of these for my baby that is due in September, we had kept all of our car seats from my son only to find out that they have an expiry date. We were so disappointed that we couldn’t use the same seats with our upcoming bundle of joy. The added expense of buying new seats has us a bit stressed out as well.

    We would give the additional seat to the boys and girls club of Kelowna so that it can be used by there childcare program or given to a family that truly needs it.

  26. Bambi Bittner June 17, 2011 at 10:46 am #

    I would give one to a dear friend of mine. She lost her baby in January right as she was born. Then a week later after the memorial service her husband was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor. It was successfully removed, but with all the unexpected expenses they are really struggling. They have 2 other children that are getting ready to move to the next seat. I have one of these seats for our oldest daughter and they are Perfect. I would love to be able to gift her 1.

  27. Jean Price June 17, 2011 at 10:46 am #

    I would give one to A friend who is A single mom of a 3 mo old and would us the other for our 5 mo old thanks

  28. Dena June 17, 2011 at 10:48 am #

    I would give one to my little girl’s favorite grandpa in the world! He is like a second father to her and she is going to be outgrowing the carseat they have in thier car very soon. He keeps her while I work and has went above and beyond his duties as a grandfather. We love him so much!

  29. Shannon June 17, 2011 at 10:50 am #

    I would like to nominate my friend Trisha who has done foster care for years. She would really be able to use this seat for her kids that she has adopted and for her grandkids.

  30. Sheila B June 17, 2011 at 10:50 am #

    I would give both to one of my best friends. One had twins in February and the other is due with twins towards the end of the year. I know how expensive car seats can be since I have 2 kids of my own, not twins. I would love to help them out with their sweet and special babies.

  31. Danielle June 17, 2011 at 10:51 am #

    I would donate this seat to my sister in law who has a pretty big 3 year old-he is about to grow out of his car seat and she can’t afford to get him a high weight harness seat. This would keep him riding safe for a long time!

  32. Trisha Kvien June 17, 2011 at 10:52 am #

    I would love one. I am 19 weeks pregnant. I’d also love to give one to the charity CASA. They are very well deserving.

  33. heather June 17, 2011 at 10:58 am #

    I would like to donate this wonderful carseat to the Phoenix children’s hospital. The families there are dealing with so much emotionally and financially, this carseat could be one less thing for then to worry about. Thanks for the great giveaway this week!

  34. Stacey Muller June 17, 2011 at 10:59 am #

    My sister, Sarah, needs a Graco Nautilus in order to keep my nephew, Nathan harnessed in his father’s car. I am a CPST, and have encouraged her to purchase this seat but my brother-in-law doesn’t think it would be a wise use of money. He is not of the mindset that children need to be harnessed beyond 3 years old, so on Nathan’s fourth birthday which is coming up in July he plans to purchase a low-back Turbo booster for Nathan to ride in. If I lived closer, I’d purchase a Nautilus for them, however we live 1700 miles away. Sarah has assured me that my brother-in-law will allow Nathan to remain harnessed if we are the selected winners of this seat!

  35. nicole robinson June 17, 2011 at 11:00 am #

    I would love to give this to my sister. she recently had to leave her home in texas and move in with our parents. the father of her baby is no longer in the picture so she works hard to support her baby girl. im also due in a few months and would love to have this when my little guy gets older!

  36. trevor scott June 17, 2011 at 11:02 am #

    I would donate it to the firefighters station bye my house as they have seen a recent increase in drop off babies. I would love to have one as well has my 9month old daughter is about to out grow hers.

  37. Lauren Weaver June 17, 2011 at 11:04 am #

    I’d love one of these for my 5 year old. The other I would donate to the Scottish Rite hospital so they could provide it for a child in need.

  38. Erin young June 17, 2011 at 11:11 am #

    There are two young married couples at church that work with our kids, that are just about to have their first babies. SO exciting!! But I also remember how expensive it is to make sue you have everything that beautiful baby needs. I would love to be able to have the option to give a seat to one of them. They do so much for others, how nice it would be to give back to them.

  39. Amanda June 17, 2011 at 11:11 am #

    I would love to have one for an extra for when i need to wash down my already Nautilus. Since i don’t dry it in the dryer and it hangs to dry it takes forever to dry. So having an extra to use would be great.

  40. Kaitlyn Marie June 17, 2011 at 11:19 am #

    I would give the seat to the Kyle David Miller foundation. They do all they can to spread the word about extended harnessing and help families that can not afford higher weight capacity seats. As for the other seat, that would go to my 2 year old niece whose mother is going to put her in a booster seat because money for her drugs is a bigger priority than the safety of her child…

  41. Torey June 17, 2011 at 11:19 am #

    I would give 1 to Mott Children’s Hospital at the University of Michigan and their Buckle Up program to help keep an older child harnessed longer. They do great work, but lack funding for high weight seats.

  42. Christie June 17, 2011 at 11:21 am #

    I would love to give one of these to our local Pregnancy Outreach program. They do so much to support mothers and mothers-to-be with information and programs to suit a variety of needs. Being from a small community there are not a whole lot of organizations where individuals can go for help. I know they have several mothers who would be very thankful to receive a quality carseat that would fit their child and keep him/her safe for an extended period of time, especially since they can not afford to purchase one themselves.

  43. Jamie June 17, 2011 at 11:24 am #

    I would love to win one for me and my best friend. We are both pregnant and due any day now and new car seats would be so great!

  44. Kirsten June 17, 2011 at 11:31 am #

    I have 4 of these already,I have a 3 year old and 2 year old and we have them in both cars. I absolutely love them and recommend them to everyone!!!! My cousin’s baby is getting ready to turn a year old and I have been looking to get him one of these for his birthday, It would be awesome becuase she can’t afford to buy him even the cheap brand of toddler seat, her financial situation has drastically changed this year and she has been going to the local Birth Right and Safe Seat Colliation in hopes of getting him a toddler seat but they have none available. I would love to give her one and donate the second to our local carseat colliation.

  45. Ali D. June 17, 2011 at 11:35 am #

    I would donate this to an outreach program that will help the families in Joplin, MO that lost EVERYTHING.

  46. Emily June 17, 2011 at 11:37 am #

    The local women’s shelter here is always in need of carseats to pass along to mothers who either can’t afford a safe seat for their child or for mothers who have fled abusive situations and are trying to get back on their feet! They could really use them!

  47. Kim June 17, 2011 at 11:42 am #

    I would love this for my boyfriend. He works so hard for our kids and he is a great father!

  48. Elizabeth June 17, 2011 at 11:52 am #

    I would like the Carolyn Scott Rainbow House in Omaha, Nebraska receive one. The Rainbow House provides free accommodations for families and patients undergoing acute, long-term treatment at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center. They need car seats for families that stay there to take their other children to go visit up at the hospital.

  49. Heather Slater June 17, 2011 at 11:52 am #

    Would love to win this for our second car! Also, would be great for a friend in need! :) . Thanks for all of these great GOGO giveaways!! :)

  50. A @ Monkey Tales June 17, 2011 at 11:58 am #

    I would give one of them to my sister in law. She is due with her second baby any day and wont be able to work after the baby is born so her husband is going to have to work more hours. I would love to be able to help them out in some way.
