GracoI am embarrassed to admit that I am just taking Taylor out of her bucket infant car seat. Truth be told, I did not change her to a convertible car seat because I was plain lazy! However, this past week, I made the switch to the Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat and I could not be happier! This car seat is incredible and makes it so easy for Taylor to be comfortable, as well as happy!Graco Baby

The Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat can be used for infants as small as 5 pounds up to toddlers as big as 65 pounds. It is used for rear-facing infants from 5-40 lbs. and forward-facing toddlers from 20-65 lbs. We obviously have Taylor rear facing and we are an extended rear facing family, so I am sure she will be like that till at least 3, as my other kids were.

I love this seat because I can use it for many years to come. It easily grows with your child with the Simply Safe Adjust™ harness system, which automatically adjusts both the harness and headrest height. As your kids get bigger, you can use the harness system to adjust accordingly. There is 8 different headrest positions that you can change to. The simply Safe Adjust™ Harness System is safe & simple with a one-hand, no re-thread harness that automatically adjusts. No more trying to get it fitted to your child, as Graco does it all for you!Graco Baby

There is a completely hassle free installation process as it features the easy LATCH system and has an easy-to-read level indicator to tell you exactly how to position. Once we had it set up, she was ready to ride in it. It is not too big, so it will fit in even the smallest of cars. It is also made of EPS, energy absorbing foam, for effective impact energy management.

It features the 5 point harness which is front adjustable to get your baby in and out easily. I feel very safe once she is buckled to bring her on the road with me. I am able to recline the seat in two positions based on where her legs hit. Right now, she does not need much room but as time goes on, we will definitely be using this feature.

Lastly, it features a removable head and body support that makes your kids comfortable in this seat. If the seat gets dirty, do not fear as the cover slip is machine washable. We had to wash it once already (a car sick toddler) and it was no problem at all!

We absolutely love the Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat. It has been safety tested to include:

SafeSeat Engineering – Engineered & Crash Tested to Meet or Exceed US Safety Standards FMVSS 213:
Side Impact Tested for Occupant Retention by the harness system
