Why We Like It: The Graco Snugride Click Connect 35 is a top pick on our infant car seat list for several reasons, a few of which include its broad capacity, versatility and safety features. The lower price also makes this a great value, since you can get a high-quality car seat for much less than many high-end brands.

One of the biggest differences between this car seat and so many others on the market is that it is incredibly lightweight. With some infant seats weighing as much as 20 lbs., you could be hauling up to 50 lbs. on your arm as your baby grows (yikes!). The SnugRide checks in at a mere 7.5 lbs., making it easy to carry and maneuver. This can be especially helpful in the first few months when your baby is often sleeping, requiring you to carry them in their car seat everywhere. This lightweight seat is good for traveling.

While the weight may be lower, the safety ratings still meet all federal standards. Graco implements SafeSeat engineering that includes EPS foam designed to absorb the energy from a crash and cushion your baby’s ride at the same time. The 5-point harness is also easy to adjust from the front and prevents baby from moving during a crash.

Another benefit to this seat is its ability to handle a wide range of babies. Tiny newborns at only 4 lbs. can fit safe and snug with a support cushion to protect their heads. Big babies can also use the seat for longer, since the weight limit goes up to 35 lbs., one of the highest in the industry for infant car seats. We love that you can use this seat longer and still keep your little one protected and secure.

We also like the ability to choose the color and style that fits you best. Unlike most car seat brands, which only offer their seats in black or maybe gray, Graco allows parents to choose from several colors. You can also use any Graco Click Connect stroller with this seat, letting you decide if you want to go with a matching stroller or switch to a different option.

Cons: While the car seat is compatible with many Graco strollers, some parents disliked the fact that it would not connect with some brands. This can be easily fixed by purchasing an adapter to attach to your stroller.

The Graco Snugride Click Connect 35 infant car seat offers all the standard safety features and other perks at a price point that is one of the lowest in quality seats. We especially love that it is so lightweight and can support babies through so many sizes.
