Enjoy Ten Years With One Car Seat! @GracoBaby #GracoBaby #Giveaway #Ad



    Having children spanning ages from 13 years to a week old I have literally tried almost every car seat system out there. As a mom my number one priority is safety. I want to make sure that my babies are safe from the moment they step foot in the car. I have a kindergartner, a toddler, and a newborn so I have 3 different car seats in my minivan right now. So when I got the opportunity to check out the Graco 4ever car seat I jumped at the chance.


    This car seat has everything I look for in a car seat. It is extremely simple to set up and use. It is very plush and comfortable so I know my babies will feel cozy during short and long rides. The safety surround side impact protection really caught my eye because I know they are fully protected. One of the best things about this car seat is that you can use it from infancy to childhood.


    Car seats are very expensive so it’s nice to know you only have to buy one and it will grow with your child. It has a newborn insert for babies as little as 4 pounds; my little guy is 6 lbs. 7 oz., and it cradles him perfectly in the fully reclined position. The Graco 4ever can be used for children up to 120 pounds. I have not seen a car seat out there with this much versatility, and that is so easy to use.

I just want to list some of its features before I go on:

  • It can be used rear facing for 0-2 years old up to 40 lbs.
  • It can be used forward facing with 5 point harness for 2-6 years old from 22-65 lbs.
  • It can be used as a high back booster with seat belt for 6-8 years old from 30-100 lbs.
  • It can be used as a backless booster with seat belt for 8-10 years old from 40-120 lbs.
  • The Graco 4ever transitions through all these variations seamlessly.

    I tried the Graco 4ever for all 3 of my younger children. My 5-year old said it was very comfortable, and my 3-year old didn’t want to get out. She actually got mad when it was her sister’s turn. Now if you’re like me you dread installing car seats in your car. It’s usually tons of pushing and pulling, and struggling to get it tight so it doesn’t move more than an inch.


    I remember when I had my first son I brought our infant car seat to the local DOT safety center to have them install it and teach me what to do. I needed a foam roll to get it reclined perfectly, and after seeing them do it I knew I had it wrong. The number one cause of injury of children in car accidents is improper car seat installation and harness positioning and fastening.


    Well this car seat makes all of this a breeze. It practically installs itself. It has 6 recline positions clearly labeled for each position. The latch system which is in every new car out there makes installation very simple. There is a level on the side which lets you know if the seat is properly installed so it takes away all the guesswork. In addition to all these great features it is easy to disassemble and clean, and it has two convenient cup holders for thirsty little ones.


    All in all I would say this is one of the best car seats on the market today, and I highly recommend the Graco 4ever for any mom/dad out there looking to keep their children safe in a quick and efficient manner.

Let’s Discuss:  Why do you think the Graco 4Ever would be the perfect car seat for your child?

  1. Brenda Haines says

    If I won it would be for my best friend’s new baby. Her fifth and she deserves something nice for all she does. It would be perfect to help her juggle a one-year old and a 2-month old.

  2. I have a 1 year old and I hate installing car seats. I’d love a good easy to install one that would grow with him!

  3. I am going to be a first time mom in April 2016!!! I always hear my friends talk about switch to another car seat after X amount of time, weight, and height. I would love to just have one car seat that works forever and is well enough made that it holds up. I love this car seat and not having to buy many different car seats and not having to store them.

  4. We already have one for my daughter and I would love one for my son!

  5. This seat is amazing! I had no idea there was one on the market that follows the child until 100 pounds. This would be perfect for the huge children I seem to produce!

  6. With baby on the way this mama needs to save money! I love that this car seat grows with baby saving Lots of money! Score!

  7. This would be perfect for my granddaughter. It’s a brand I can trust and I love that it changes as the child changes.

  8. This would be perfect for me to be able to transport nieces and nephews. 🙂

  11. Heather walborn says

    Honestly, I hate the fact that we do not have a grow with me type carseat for our current 14 week old. I never knew there was one out there that could honestly last this long for convertible car seats! I love how plush & comfy it looks. But the fact that it can be a safe & effective car seat for years it hands down the best.

  12. I will never probably need this but I do have a grand niece who is forever being driven hither and thon for distance trips! She is currently 2 going on 10 and I know both her great grandma, her grandparents and I (much less her parents) would love a car seat this versatile and which grows with the child. Actually it is probably perfect for Granny’s car for all those many visits!! Plenty of grandparents have their own car seats for the little ones for those visits!!

  13. Linda Bradshaw says

    This would be perfect for my granddaughter because she can use it as she grows. Since she is so small, she can use this for years.

  14. Kathy Luman says

    This Graco 4Ever Carseat sounds Amazing. I have 6 grandchildren and it seems like they are always outgrowing their car seats. I would love to get this for my youngest grandchild because it will last him a long time and it would protect him.

  15. James Robert says

    I would like to win for my cousin’s baby boy because it looks like one awesome car seat and she needs something to keep him safe.

  16. Heather Hayes Panjon says

    I Think This Graco 4Ever Car SEat Would Be Perfect Because It Would Grow With The Child And It Would Be The Only Car Seat That We Would Need.

  17. This would be the perfect car seat for my grandson because it has great safety features and will grow with him as he gets bigger. I love that it can be used through the different car seat stages with him and I don’t have to get a new seat for him each time. He could use this for years to come!

  18. This car seat would be the perfect seat for me as I have four children spanning different ages starting at one! To have a seat that can grow with them and not have to buy a new car seat for each phase of life would be an absolute dream come true!

  19. It would be great to have a car seat that I never have to replace when we have another child.

  20. Kristin Goodson says

    I love that it has cup holders and that it transitions. I hate buying a new seat for different stages. This would be perfect for my son! It has a lot of padding, especially around the head. We go on a lot of car trips and I want my son to be as safe as possible.

  21. Marvelyne Engel says

    What an awesome carseat! I especially love how it helps you know it’s installed correctly – that’s always such a big concern! And the easy in / out – wow!!

  22. I think this would be the perfect seat because it will be the only one we will have to buy! And being Graco it’s a wonderful brand!

  23. All that labeling and the level on the side makes it practically foolproof. I’m so glad Graco has really put so much thought and effort into designing a car seat that lasts through the stages too!

  24. I love that this product transitions to so many different useful positions so easily. It’s perfect.

  25. My baby is getting to the point where we need to switch her car seat. This would be perfect for her as we transition from rear to front facing. I love the great features.

  26. I love that you never have to buy another car seat for your child!

  27. Adrienne Gordon says

    It would be great for my niece because she would be able to grow into it.

  28. This would be the perfect seat for my child because she really needs a new seat! This one is so much safer and the fact that it would last her until she’s done with car seats makes it even better. Ive been wanting a Graco seat for her for a long time.

  29. Marti Tabora says

    I think it would be perfect for my first grandson that is due in June because my son and his wife wouldn’t need to purchase any other car seat for the baby. I would love to be able to get this for them and I know they would be thrilled to have it. This will be their first baby and my first grandchild, we are very excited.

  30. This would be perfect for our newborn!! He’s using an infant that his brothers used, but we really need a seat for him. I have 3 convertible seats for his older brothers and would love to have something high quality and long lasting like this!!

  31. My daughter is having a baby in the spring. This looks like it would be the perfect car seat!

  32. Buying accessories or your kids can be so expensive. I love to see a product that grows with your child. I have a dear friend who is having a baby and this would be perfect for her.

  33. This looks like the Cadillac of car seats. Looks cozy and safe.

  34. I would love the Graco 4 Ever for our baby boy who is expected to arrive in February. It would be fantastic to have only one car seat and not have to buy a new car seat at every new stage. Thank you so much for the chance of winning this fabulous car seat!

  35. Jillian Too says

    The Graco 4Ever would be perfect for my soon-to-be nephew because it would be able to grow with him. I really like the side impact protection.

  36. This would be perfect for my granddaughter. My daughter needs something that will grow with my sweet grandbaby. This is also an affordable option.

  37. That’s an amazing giveaway. Car seats have definitely come a long way since my kids were little! I wish this one had been around back then.

  38. Dierdra McGill says

    Buying car seats can get very expensive. This would be perfect for our family because it will grow with the baby! I also trust and love the company.

  39. I love that it’s good for 4 – 120 lbs & would be the only seat we’ll ever need! Love love LOVE the Kylie color for my girly girl!!

  40. steve weber says

    This would be perfect.. my sisters both had baby boys 2 months apart!

  41. This would be great for my two year old because it will be the last seat she will need. She is now three and almost grown out of her seat. Graco is also a well trusted brand.

  42. This is a great concept. Not only will it keep your baby safe, it will grow along with the baby through early childhood.

  43. I think the Graco 4Ever Car Seat would be a great car seat for our child because Graco makes great products. We don’t need a car seat yet, but will in the near future!

  44. Barbara Fox says

    This would be great for my granddaughter! We really need something that she can ride in for years to come. We drive her about 5x a month and buying a new car seat everytime she gains some weight can be really expensive!

  45. This would be perfect for my granddaughter! She lives in Ireland, so it would be wonderful to have such a great car seat available here for her to use when she and her mother visit.

  46. Graco is such a great brand when it comes to car seats! This car seat would be perfect because as you said it, car seats can be quite expensive. The fact that it will grow with my child is a wonderful thing!

  47. Maria Isabel says

    I am currently expecting a baby Girl, I had been wondering about this very car seat I love the fact that we don’t have to buy another car seat for 10 years. Kids grow too fast and grow out of everything too quickly I would love to get the chance to try this awesome car seat for my princess!

  48. Now THAT looks like a worthwhile investment to me! I love how it adjusts as the child grows!

  49. This Graco 4Ever car seat is just amazing! I love how it adapts to a child’s growth and easy car installation. Graco is the leader in children’s furniture, strollers, cribs and car seats!

  50. This car seat sounds amazing! I’ve always loved the grace brand and I know that they stand for safety and quality. I love how it can fit my child from when they are very young to needing a booster seat!

  51. What an amazing sounding car seat, I love that it will last so well and it can adapt as children grow.

  52. I think it would be perfect because it has long lasting power! I would love to have a car seat that I can keep for years to come and that is comfortable! A big plus for mom is easy installation 🙂

  53. My son is eight and still in a car seat. His friends jest, but whatevs. Better safe than sorry. I love this one!! Graco is a great brand.

  54. I think this would be perfect for my grandbaby because she’s about to outgrow the one her parents brought her home from the hospital in. It’s time for her to have one that’s going to grow with her, and the safety features on this one have me sold.

  55. Stacey Roberson says

    I think this would be the perfect car set for my newborn, as she can grow into it without having to switch to a different car seat. I love that it has 6 reclining positions.

  56. Ellie Wright says

    This would be perfect for my 14 month old granddaughter, because it would grow with her. She is just about too big for her car seat, now.

  57. Brittney House says

    I love that it is a safe and adjustable product for my son.

  58. I just love the idea of never having to purchase another car seat again! Plus, this one has all of the bells and whistles you could ask for.

  59. We are expecting our first in 2016 so this would be an amazing car seat to grow with our child!!! Thats what I like most about it, how it can be modified with their size changes.

  60. I’m currently pregnant with my 3rd and no longer have my infant seat from my first 2 so this is the seat I’m planning to buy! I think it’s such a great idea 🙂


  61. Jonathan McDavid says

    I like the safety history of Graco and it is a car seat that I would feel very comfortable putting our first child that we are expecting in. The reputation of Graco focus on excellence is what gets me excited about their car seat.

  62. Virginia Rowell says

    This would be perfect for my grandson. I love all the reclining positions and I think he would be so comfortable in it.

  63. I would like to win for my Niece.

  64. I like that it can transition from infant to toddler. Saves money when you only need one car seat.

  65. Leslie Davis says

    I’d love this for my friend who’s having her baby tomorrow. 🙂 I like that it transitions with the child.

  66. See, this is why I am such a fan of Graco in general. There seriously “get it” -what parents want and what kids need!! So glad you had a chance to review this, lucky duck!!! 🙂 And I am glad to know about it! 😉

  67. It would be great for my daughter because it is safe and secure.

  68. Kyl Neusch says

    This would be great for my niece because of the safety.

  69. I think this would be a perfect car seat for my son because it’s a quality brand with all sorts of great safety features.

  70. Graco looks like a wonderful product & the car seat is definitely looking so much comfort & kid friendly as well. I just love that it can be used for kids of different age groups which makes it a great one to try out.

  71. Melissa Teears says

    This is perfect. I wouldn’t have to keep buying car seats and boosters.

  72. Bianca Munoz says

    Hi there! And thank you for the giveaway. I think the Graco 4Ever would be perfect for my daughter because she could reearface in it! And she needs a new car seat. I’ve heard really great things about this car seat. This would be amazing! Thank you!

  73. Stephanie Phelps says

    I think this car seat would be perfect because of all the great safety features! Also because she is only a few weeks old she would be able to use this car seat for years! Besides I love Graco and believe in their products!

  74. laura bernard says

    I think it is a great safe seat. I also like that it fits such a wide variety of children. I hate the idea of having to change car seats all the time and this fixes that!

  75. This would be perfect for my youngest child! I hate having to buy new car seats for every stage, and knowing this is a safe seat for all ages would give me peace of mind!

  76. patricia delgado says

    I think it’s great that companies like Graco are making products that grow with your child. It’s more economical and for me it takes the guesswork out of where to put my money because I buy one and I’m done!

  77. This car seat would be great for our son because it can grow with him! I loathe the idea of having to buy individual car seats for every stage!

  78. It would be wonderful to have a car seat that would be adaptable for many years to come. The safety features make it even more desirable.

  79. Michele Pineda says

    I think it is great because it grows along with the child. No more buying 2 or 3 carseats as they grow older, get taller or heavier. The safety features are a big plus and it looks comfortable as well.

  80. Dawn Monroe says

    I like that it grows/changes with the child and the extra side impact safety features. It looks amazingly comfortable for my grandkids.

  81. This would be perfect for my new baby, 1- because Graco is a great company with great dependable products, 2- because my baby is about to outgrow her infant seat that was passed down from her older siblings, 3-because this would be the last and only seat she would ever need. Thanks for the chance to win!

  82. I love the safety features it offers.

  83. natasha lamoreux says

    I like this car seat because it has 6 recline postitions and also an indicator on the side to let you know the car seat is installed properly. This is a one stop shop, from infant to toddler. I trust their products and love using them.

  84. Seyma Shabbir says

    The Graco 4Ever car seat adjusts as your child grows! One seat for your child!

  85. Geneveigh Sewell says

    I think the Graco 4ever is perfect because it’s the only carseat your child will need!! I love that the harnesses are so easy to adjust and that a newborn baby is nestled snuggly in the included body support.

  86. This would be great for my little grandson. We have him occasionally, and it would be nice not to have to keep replacing a car seat as he grows.

  87. I think this would be the perfect seat for my daughter because of the 6 recline positions and the two cup holders.

  88. I think it’s perfect because it’s easy to install. that’s #1 priority to me

  89. I think it is perfect because it looks comfy for my daughter. She has started complaining that her seat is uncomfortable and this would be a great solution for her!

  90. This car seat is perfect for my daughter because I do not have to buy multiple car seats as she grows!!

  91. Heather Dawn says

    My youngest son is getting ready to outgrow his infant car seat. This would be perfect since it will last him a long time 🙂

  92. I love that this seat grows with my little one so that it’s hopefully the only seat I’ll ever need to purchase! I also love how easy it sounds to install this seat and get the correct recline position.

  93. Denise Luscan says

    I’m having my second child soon and I am very interested in getting a convertible. With my first, we went through three car seats and it’s truly a waste of money. LOVE the Graco brand and this is exactly what I am looking for in a new car seat. Great post. Seeing your three adorable kids in the seat (for age reference) is really helpful. I have been iffy about putting an infant in one of these but the baby looks pretty comfy :).

  94. I like that you never have to buy another car seat for your child!

  95. I think it would be perfect for my son because I would be able to rear face him and also have the proper height adjustment.

  96. Sarah Hall says

    This would be perfect for my child as she could use it as she grows and I would not have to be buying new ones every few months. They grow so fast and need the seats until they are so big according to our state laws.

  97. My baby is currently in a carseat that was used by his big brother and sister. I would love for him to have brand new one. This looks like a great one!

  98. Cassandra Eastman says

    I think it would be perfect for my 9 month old because he could remain rear facing until 40lbs. (hopefully until he’s 2) then we could just turn the seat around and not have to purchase another seat! I love that this seat grows with your child which definitely saves money in the long run.

  99. Alexis Cuffy says

    This would be the perfect car seat for my daughter because it grows with her and we wouldn’t have to get a new seat at each new stage. It looks super spacious and I love the cup holders for her to hold a drink and any little toys she has!

  100. gina blades says

    My mom has 2 of these in her car – one for my 2-year old daughter (just turned forward), and one for my 13-month old son (just transitioned from infant seat to convertible rear-facing). I also need another one so I can get my son out of the infant seat and into a convertible seat.

  101. Shanna Uptergrove says

    Kids grow SO fast, it gets too expensive to buy different stages of carseats. This one is a great one that will take him through until hes out of a booster! He is 1 now, but he will be sitting in a carseat for at least 5 more years!

  102. It sounds like this car seat is easy to install and use – which is definitely a plus! Also love that it grows with your child. Nice not to have to buy any in the future!

  103. Nicole Huckins says

    We need a new car seat for our daughter who is outgrowing her infant carrier and will be passing it along to her new baby sibling due in August. This would be perfect for us!

  104. I think this car seat would be great for my child. The car seat is safe and big and comfortable for my child.

  105. Jennifer W says

    I love that it’s convertible rear-facing to forward-facing. We are going to have our second child soon and will need a good, solid seat we can be sure will protect our new little one!

  106. Sarah Sobocinski says

    This would be perfect for my son because I wouldn’t have to buy a second car seat.

  107. I just purchased a new-to-me car and I have disliked the car seat I had in my old one for some time. This would be a perfect time to put a new one to use, and since my granddaughter is only 2, she will need one (hopefully this one) for some time yet!

  108. Virginia Rowell says

    I entered the Dove Prize Pack (ARV $50)-Ends 1/22. Thank you!

  109. Laura Unger says

    I think this would be the perfect car seat for my 3 year old! Soon, we will be traveling twice a month for medical treatments and I would love a seat that is easier to install. His current one is very difficult and it never seems to be installed correctly no matter how much we follow the instructions or adjust it. He also complains that his current seat is uncomfortable. My oldest currently has a Graco and he loves his seat and we’ve never had an issue with installing that one.

  110. If I won this, I would actually donate it 🙂 I’m trying to get a few things here and there to donate to another new mom (or mom to be) in need! Xo

  111. Chasta howes says

    It would be perfect for my child because he is 2 months old and because it grows with them, he will get a lot of use from it. Plus I know would be a nice safe seat.

  112. I like that the carseat can be used for 10 years! I also like how adjustable the headrest and harness are. And it looks so easy to clean.

  113. Courtnie Miller says

    I think it would be perfect for my nephew, because it’ll last a long time!

  114. Regina Wright says

    I think this seat would be perfect for my 4 year old. She’ll be 5 in June and she’s growing out of her seat. This seat will last her about a 8 yrs depending on her growth. I would be so grateful if I won this seat! Thanks for the chance.

  115. Karen Drake says

    I think this would be the perfect car seat for my Grandson. I love all the positions it has and that it is easy to install.

  116. I think it would be perfect for my son who just turned a year old. He’s pretty tall for his age and needs a new seat so we can use the one we have for our new baby due in June.

  117. Jennifer Dunaway says

    I think it will be best because it will save us money. We wont have to buy several more as they grow like we did with the other children.

  118. Bobbie Smith says

    This would be perfect for my grandson because Graco is a brand you can definitely trust. I also love that it can be used through his growing stages instead of having to go out and buy another one.

  119. This would be perfect for our first grandchild – due in June.

  120. My daughter would feel like she was riding in style!

  121. Richard Hicks says

    It would be perfect because it looks so comfortable. ALso, I love that it grows with the child for many years. I like the safety features too.

  122. I could use one for my granchild in my car. Looks like it has great side protection too.

  123. Richard Hicks says

    I entered this giveaway

    Dove Prize Pack Valued at $50

  124. This would be so perfect for us because it grows with the baby. It’s nice to have a car seat that works as an infant and as they grow.

  125. I think this would be perfect for my baby, I know that I can use it for a long time as the baby grows .

  126. James Robert says
  127. Stephanie Larison says

    I love love love this car seat! I’m due in April and would be perfect from the time baby is born and would be able to grow along with her. Plus, it’s a huge bonus that it’s easy to install. Sometimes they can be such a pain to get it all just right but so important that it is.

  128. susan smoaks says

    This car seat would be perfect for our son because it would keep him comfortable and safe. I am always looking for more safety products for our children.

  129. stephanie baker says

    I have a toddler & a newborn. I’d love to have a nicer seat for the newborn instead of the basic carrier that we have. I usually baby wear, so I’m not sure why I let my husband talk me into digging out her sister’s old one. All the features on the Graco are awesome.

  130. Rachele W. says

    I love that the seat grows with your child and the high limits they have for each stage. The built in cup holder is a feature our daughter would love. The one offered by her current brand of seat keeps popping off. :/ Messy & a pain.

  131. Because of the safety features and it can be used with older kids too as a booster…

  132. I love it because it grows with the child and easy to install.

  133. Tina Reynolds says

    I like the setup and how easy it is to adjust. Plus it seems to be one of the safest on the market the most important thing for me. Would be perfect for my youngest son Thor.

  134. The Graco 4Ever would be perfect for our family because we could use it for either of our kids depending on our needs at the time. Or even to fit a playmate, cousin, etc! I’m amazed that this one seat can keep infants through children safe in the car.

  135. i love that it means generating less “waste” as you grow through seats. Ease of installation is also a huge plus!

  136. Paula Caudill says

    It would be just perfect for my granddaughter, it adjusts and we wouldn’t have to buy another seat for a few years. Also, it so easy to maneuver and install, it’s really nice, and hope to win! Thank you!

  137. Keeley Sullivan says

    What an incredible car seat. This will grow with my daughter for as long as she needs one. Amazing!

  138. This would be the perfect car seat for my child because it grows with you. I have two kids who desperately need a better one. They both have hand me downs and they are soo old. you can look at them and tell they need new ones. I love that it looks relaxing and also have cup holders for them.

  139. It can be used from newborn up to 120 lbs, so basically its the ONLY car seat you ever need! this would be perfect for my new niece who will be born in February! 🙂

  140. Leanne Godfrey says

    The Graco 4Ever would be the perfect because it is so versatile. I also know that Graco has outstanding, durable products. Another reason it would be perfect is that it reclines and the cup holder is an amazing bonus!

  141. Francine Anchondo says

    It would be perfect because it grows with your child. I love the cup holder.

  142. Marcia Goss says

    This would be perfect for me to have when my grandson visits. He is 2 years old and this car seat looks like it would really protect him in the car.

    Because it grows with your child! I recently had to replace two car seats and I wish I would have found this one first but I would love to win for our new baby! 🙂

    Because I could use this seat to keep her rear facing for much longer then her current seat…..and I wouldn’t have to change it out for a different one once she grows bigger.

  145. This would be perfect for my niece because it’s safe and comfortable.

    Because she will be able to use it for a long time to come. The 6 recline positions will also be very comfortable for my child. I really like the colors in the Kylie pattern as well!

  147. Do not buy this carseat for an infant. It causes major head slump in the most reclined rear-facing position for our 9-pound newborn. Newborns airways are easily blocked and they don’t necessarily have the instinct to cry or adjust their head if this happens. Very unsafe.
