Many families start with an infant car seat like the Graco SnugRide and graduate to a convertible car seat like this one around one year. (You can also start with the convertible car seat and skip the infant one altogether. Make an informed choice.)
When the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended rear-facing seats til two years of age, some parents scoffed that their kid’s little legs simply wouldn’t fit in the car seat. Graco introduced the Extend2Fit that gives those little kickers an extra five inches of space with an extendable leg rest. In fact with a 50-lb weight limit, your child could comfortably stay rear-facing til three years old. Small-car families take note: this leg rest does mean the car seat will take up more space and the front seat passenger might have to scrunch. For that reason, it’s a better option for minivans and other larger cars.
The seat converts to a forward-facing seat that can be used until your child is 65 lbs or 49”. (Then they can start using a backless booster seat.)
Installation of the Extend2Fit is pretty straight forward with the seat’s LATCH anchors, and it has a bubble indicator to show if it’s installed in the correct level position. The no-rethread adjustable harness is incredibly simple to use and had ten positions to grow with baby. The car seat cover is easy to remove and wash when it gets dirty, and the seat comes with two cup holders.
