Graco’s New Addition: SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40, the ONLY Newborn-To-Two Year Infant Car Seat

At Graco®, we’re parents ourselves, so we want maximum protection for our babies—and yours. Therefore, when respected authorities—American Academy of Pediatrics* and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration—make an updated recommendation, we take notice. Both now recommend that children ride rear-facing until two years old or until they reach maximum height and weight for their seat.

With all of that in mind, Graco is so proud to introduce the revolutionary, NEW SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40—the ONLY rear-facing newborn-to-two-year infant car seat on the market. This seat has all of the great features moms and dads have come to love on the SnugRide line of infant seats: rigorously crash tested to meet or exceed all U.S. safety standards; top rated by leading publications; features plush, cozy fabrics that are soft on baby’s skin; LATCH-equipped stay-in-car base, 5-point, front-adjust harness; removable head and body support.

In addition to the great standard SnugRide features, the SnugRide Click Connect 40 features an 8-position adjustable base that grows with your child, providing the most leg room and a comfortable ride for up to two years; when your child gets big, you can flip up the kick plate, which protects the back of your car’s seat. This terrific seat also boasts the Simply Safe Adjust™ Harness System, which offers a safe and simple way to adjust the harness and headrest with just one hand—and NO need to rethread the harness. Moms, this means that as your baby grows, you can easily adjust the fit, without having to take the harness out and rethread it through the seat! Finally, Graco’s new Click Connect™ technology provides a one-step secure attachment to all Graco Click Connect strollers to create a travel system.

As if you needed MORE reasons to love the SnugRide Click Connect 40, here are some key reasons that “Rear to Two” offers the safest ride for your precious cargo:

  • A 2007 study in Injury Prevention (journal) showed that children under age two are 75% less likely to die or be severely injured in a crash if they are rear-facing.
  • In rear-facing mode, the back of the seat supports baby’s head, neck and spine. In a crash, the back of the child restraint absorbs the bulk of force.

Right now, the only rear-facing newborn to two year infant car seat on the market is the Graco® SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40. Check it out – we hope you love it as much as we do!

    I thought the Size4Me, MyRide 65/70, and SmartSeat All-in-one were also rear-facing birth to 2??

    This seat is only rear facing. The other seats are rear and forward facing

    @Kathleen – they are because they are convertible seats, this new SnugRide is an infant seat, so it has the carry handle and sunshade :)

    Almost makes me want to have another baby LOL. My Graco SafeSeat1 still has a year or two of life left it in and has served 3 kids (2 mine). My girls (4 and 2) are still RF, sometimes I wish convertible seats had sunshades or similar as well!

    Thanks everyone for the great comments and questions. Yes, the SnugRide Click Connect 40 is the only rear-to-two year infant car seat carrier.
