Kids grow up so fast, don’t they? One minute, you’re taking your child in for their first pediatric checkup and the next, you’re packing a lunchbox for his first day of kindergarten. As children grow, their car seat needs change too, which is why we’re happy to add a new option to the mix: The Graco CONNEXT™ Backless Booster Seat with LATCH.
This innovative booster is designed to help protect children 4 – 10 years old, from 40 – 100 lbs. and from 40 – 57” tall. It’s equipped with a rear-adjust LATCH system, which creates a secure connection between the booster and the vehicle seat, even when the seat is not in use (this is a great feature: in the event of a sudden stop when it’s not being used, the seat will stay firmly in place). This feature allows easy self-buckling, so that older children can feel more independent. It’s important to note that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children remain in a belt-positioning booster until they are 4’9” tall.
Speaking of independence, when did you know your child was growing up? Tell us in the comments below to enter to win a CONNEXT Backless Booster with LATCH. We will announce the winner on Facebook tomorrow after 10 a.m. EST. Good luck!
