Graco are well known for making long-lasting and extremely safe products and the Graco SnugRide 35 LX Click Connect infant car seat is no different. As you are probably aware, there are a number of different SnugRide car seats available, 7 the last time I counted, so it can be a little difficult to know which one to pick. Most people agree the SnugRide 35 is the best of the bunch, but obviously this comes at a cost. The SnugRide 35 LX is commonly thought of as number two and is priced accordingly.

Who should buy this?

As the Graco SnugRide 35 LX Click connect infant car seat can only be fixed in a rear-facing position it is suitable for only newborns to approximately 18 months (depending on the weight of your baby of course). Any new parent will find this car seat very easy to use. The new “Click Connect” system that connects the seat to the base makes an audible “click” sound so you know when you have affixed the seat to the base successfully. This gives great peace of mind, knowing that you have your child safely in the car. This is one of the only car seats on the market where your baby can remain in the rear-facing positon until 35 pounds or approximately 18 months old. So if you are more comfortable with your baby facing you while you are in the back of the car, then this is the car seat for you. The SnugRide 35 LX is also very easy to fit your baby in safely and securely, so even if you are not great at this kind of thing you should have no problem, even the least technologically minded parent should find using this car seat a breeze.
