Editor’s Note: Here at Dispatches, we are always looking for ways to help our readers do things. For some of our readers, that means helping navigate the working world, for others, it means assisting in the ever challenging question, “what’s for dinner?” For still others, it means figuring out how to balance family life with everything else. In an effort to aid in all of these endeavors, we have collaborated on this article written for our readers.
Car seats and booster seats are a fact of life for parents of children under 100 pounds. One car seat can make a car seem sizably smaller. Two or three in a compact car is nearly impossible. We’ve used the Graco brand since 2014 and have always been very happy.
In this Graco extend2fit review, from CarSeatMom.com you can review the features, recalls, pros and cons of the Graco Extend2Fit Convertible Car Seat.
The Graco Extend2Fit Convertible Car Seat was designed to solve a variety of concerns that parents have when selecting a car seat for their kiddos.
The biggest selling feature of the Extend2Fit® is an extendable tray that gives kids an extra five inches of rear-facing legroom as they grow.
Five inches doesn’t sound like a lot, but it can make a huge difference in comfort level. It may even make kids a little happier about riding in a rear-facing position longer.
Additionally, Graco® upped their game by extending the rear-facing weight limit in the Extend2Fit® models up to 50 pounds.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends that all children under the age of one ride in a rear-facing position. This rule can be tricky to follow in an infant car seat because babies usually outgrow the infant seat by eight or nine months old.
The Extend2Fit® convertible car seat solves this problem with higher weight and height limits keeping kids in the rear-facing position well past their second birthday.
Once kids outgrow the rear-facing limits, the Extend2Fit® can convert into a forward-facing car seat with a five-point harness.
The weight range for this mode is between 22 and 65 pounds and can be used for kids up to 49 inches tall. Remember, any child under 22 pounds has to ride in a rear-facing position.
