It’s Child Passenger Safety Week but September is National Passenger Safety Month and we want to highlight a few car seats that we think would benefit you and your little one. Today we want to focus on the Graco 4Ever All-in-One Car Seat. Now there’s a reason this is called 4Ever. Wanna know why? This is one convertible car seat that gives you 10 years of use from 4 – 120 pounds. It’s the one you will take your baby home in from the hospital, and the one that you will use with your 6 year old on his way to soccer practice. It’s truly goes from baby to booster without you needing to buy another.
The Graco 4Ever All-in-One Car Seat as I mentioned may be the only car seat you may need. It transitions from a rear facing infant car seat, to forward facing 5 point harness seat, to a high back belt positioning booster seat, to a backless belt positioning booster.
Now I want to share some of the features with you and I’m not going in any particular order but this one I just had to show you first. It’s very rare that you find a car seat that reclines both rear and forward facing. The 6 position recline adjusts to fit and keep your growing child comfortable making it comfy for them and very convenient for you.
Simply Safe Adjust™ Harness System is safe & simple and the one-hand, 10 position head rest is so simple. It really just takes one hand with no rethreading of the harness. Together the harness and the headrest is adjusted. Super easy!
Nothing makes you feel more comfortable knowing that your car seat has been side-impact tested, and that it meets or exceeds all applicable US safety standards. It has been engineered & crash tested to meet or exceed US standard FMVSS 213. It also has EPS, energy absorbing foam for effective impact energy management.
While we’re on that note I have to mention how super comfy this seat is and even includes plush inserts. It is very well cushioned and the seat cover is washable and very easy to remove without even needing to remove the harness. Now you won’t have to worry about your little one sitting in a dirty seat. Remove and throw in your washer and you’ll be good as new once again.
This is definitely one feature that you should look for when buying your car seat. A steel-reinforced frame. This provides strength and durability in the event of crash. Wouldn’t you rather have steel over plastic?
Here’s another feature that totally sold me. While most car seats have 1 or some have no cup holders. The Graco 4Ever All-in-One upped the ante by giving you two! They are removable so if you think that you’re going to need the space then you can totally remove them.
This was installed in our Hyundai Santa Fe which is a small compact SUV and as you can see it does take up quite a bit of space. Installation was super easy and it took my dad approximately 5 minutes to get it all set up using the latch system.

As recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, children 4 feet 9 inches tall or under should ride in a belt-positioning booster seat.
The American Academy of Pediatricians recommends that children be rear facing until age 2 or until they reach the maximum rear facing height and weight rating for their seat and that child stays harnessed as long as possible.
I am super comfy in my new Graco 4Ever All-in-One and I am confident that I won’t need another car seat for many years to come. With this being National Car Safety Week I recommend you choosing a car seat that not only fits your vehicle right but also is safe. Graco has been in the business for quite a long time and I can certainly say that this is one car seat that you won’t regret buying. It certainly gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!
You can purchase the Graco 4Ever All-in-One Car Seat exclusively at BabiesRUs.
