When it was time to pick out a new car seat for the little one, we wanted a seat that would last basically forever. The Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit was our favorite from the ones we went to look at. Not only could it rear face for years, but it also will convert into a high back booster seat and then eventually, a no back booster as well. They’re available to buy new but if you want to save a little money you could always wait until they start appearing on classifieds sites like LeoList. This is a great tip for all new parents who are struggling to make ends meet and afford all the new equipment you need.
The Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit retails at $349. This seat allows rearfacing up to 50lbs and the Extend2Fit option allows an extra 5″ of legroom as your child grows. When you’re ready to turn them around, you can use the 5 point harness until they reach 65lbs.
The LATCH system is super easy to use and I loved that it literally took me under a minute to get it installed. The harness system is also really easy to use! The Simply Safe Adjust™ Harness System and 10-position headrest adjusts the headrest and harness placement together- no more rethreading the straps!
Jackson seems to be very comfortable in the car seat. While we have only used it in rear-facing mode so far, it’s love. It is a 10 year car seat, so it should be the only other car seat we need to buy for him. This is a huge deal! The cover also is removed easily in case it needs washed- no need to take apart the whole seat as the harness can stay in!
I also love the two built in cup-holders, although Jackson does currently have trouble reaching it while he’s strapped in. I feel like they will be an awesome feature as he gets a bit older. It’s also where we keep an extra pacifier in the car at all times since that boy just can’t be without one!
A huge thank you to Graco for providing us with the car seat in exchange for this review.
