Being of the top-rated car seats worldwide, Graco car seats are preferred by most moms when it comes to choosing quality for their child. The price is also one of the factors they consider as it is truly worth the money you spend. However, as kids are messy, car seats get messy too.

All the vomiting and food drinks spillage will get to your car seat whether you like it or not. Even high-quality brands or models suffer for that and maintaining the cleanliness and quality is needed. But most importantly, it is not only about maintaining the quality of the car seat to not spend a lot of money. It is also about keeping your babies safe from all the germs that come along all these dirty products. We all know how kids love to reach out on a lot of things. Their hands go almost anywhere and most of the time get these things on their mouth. Their curious and they love exploring and they wouldn’t understand even if you tell them to stop. So, it must be your responsibility, as a parent, to keep their environment clean and during your travels, the car seat is the baby’s environment. Read the Manual Every Graco car seats come with an owner’s manual so you must start reading that before you start with cleaning. All important instructions are written there such as how to remove the parts, how to clean the parts, and how to reassemble the parts. The do’s and don’ts are also indicated and must be followed carefully. Not following it might damage the car seat, thus losing its quality. Preparation In cleaning a car seat, you would need the following: Baby Wipes Water Gentle Soap Cloth Baby-safe all-purpose cleaner As you can see, it’s noted to use a gentle soap and baby-safe all-purpose cleaner. You wouldn’t want any strong chemicals to get into your baby’s skin so you have to avoid using those. At the same time, never use a rough sponge when cleaning soiled surfaces as this may damage the fabric of your car seat. Finally, think about the right time to clean your car seat. Try to schedule it on a day where you won’t have any travel scheduled in a few days. This way, you can give your car seat the time to dry up completely. Reassembling the car seat while the materials are wet might damage the quality of your car seat.

How to Clean Graco Car Seats There are different models of Graco car seats and each comes with its own manual to follow. Below is a guide in cleaning parts of a car seat in general, however, do not forget to follow specific instructions from the manual. Cleaning the seat pad To clean the seat pad, you can just simply dip a soft cloth in a mixture of soap and cool water. Wring out the cloth, make sure it’s damp, before starting to wipe off the seat. If the dirt on the seat is too messy, then you also have the option to remove it. Follow the manual for detailed instructions on how to remove the seat pad and the headrest. After that, you can simply throw it into the washing machine and clean with cool water on a delicate cycle. Cleaning the Buckle Follow the owner’s manual for detailed instructions on removing the car seat buckle strap. Gently place the buckle in a cup of water and press the button several times. This will help in cleaning the insides of the buckle. Shake out the excess water and allow it to dry. Repeat this several times until you can fasten it easily with a click. Don’t submerge the buckle strap in the water and don’t use any detergents as this may damage the straps. Cleaning the Harness and LATCH Straps In cleaning the harness and LATCH straps, you can just simply wipe it using a damp cloth. Again, do not submerge these straps in water even without detergent. These may weaken the straps which are not really good for your baby’s safety and security. Let’s take Graco 4-Ever Convertible Car Seat for example, check this tutorial video: Reassembling the Car Seat Allow all the car seat parts to dry up before re-assembling it. This will help you avoid having a smelly car seat and also, you won’t risk damaging any important parts and safety features. Reassemble the parts by just simply reversing the process on how you removed it. You can also just simply see the manual for this.

When reassembling, it is best to make sure that all the harness and straps are returned and secured properly. You wouldn’t want it to loosen while your baby is on the seat in the middle of your travel right. Also, make sure that straps are not twisted so always check if you positioned it properly. This way, you can rest assured that it will function well. If you’re not confident in the assembling process, then find someone who is. Besides, it’s always better to consult with someone who knows especially that it’s your baby’s safety that is the concern here. Conclusion Getting baby items dirty or messy is normal. It is just important to know how to clean up these items properly. We all know the fact that germs are everywhere and it can get on the items that our kids use daily. Babies get their hands on almost everywhere so it is always best to keep everything clean and knowing how to is a great start. Try to review our guide, here again, to get yourself familiarized on the proper cleaning. Besides, Graco is a really great brand and you don’t want to lower its quality just because you haven’t followed a correct process. For sure, if you become an expert on this, you would be able to clean up anything in no time.

Pay close attention to the information about your vehicle’s seat belt system, and how to “lock” the seat belt. Every seat and vehicle is different, which affects the way you’ll install your particular seat. Check to make sure there are no twists in the seat belt. The base should not move side-to-side or front-to-back more than 1 inch.

Harness straps should lie flat, not twisted, and be placed through the slots located at or below your child’s shoulders. The harness is snug enough when you cannot pinch any extra material at the shoulder.Always buckle the baby in the seat first, and then place coats or blankets over the harness. This holds the harness straps in place on the child’s chest and shoulders. These seats typically have weight and height limits for the rear-facing position that allow you to keep your child rear-facing longer. If a baby under 1 year old grows too tall or too heavy for an infant car seat, a car seat with a higher rear-facing size limit is strongly recommended. Pay close attention to the location of the lower anchors, and directions on how to use this vehicle hardware. In a crash, the back seat is the safest place to be, and rear-facing car seats provide extra protection for your child’s head, neck and spine. You should not be able to move the car seat base side-to-side or front-to-back more than 1 inch. Harness straps should lie flat, not twisted, and be placed through the slots located at or below your child’s shoulders.

If a baby under 1 year old grows too tall or too heavy for an infant car seat, a car seat with a higher rear-facing height and weight limit is strongly recommended. That’s an honor only given to a very few carseats on the market and as the SnugRide has matured, it’s gotten more safety items—EPS foam—and better design—easier-to-install bases. Let’s see why this lightweight seat, the SnugRide 30 LX in particular, has remained a favorite of parents for so many years.

Unlike some ice creams, these 2 flavors don’t mix well and a Classic Connect SnugRide carrier can’t be paired with a Click Connect SnugRide base and vice versa. The “Classic” and “Click” describe the connections the carriers make to the carseat base and strollers. What’s currently available in each line? If more recline is required, noodles may be used. This flip piece can be easily lost because it’s not connected to the base in any way, but when properly attached to the base, you will hear and feel a “click” as it snaps on. If you lose the flip piece, either order a new one from Graco or use a piece of noodle or tightly rolled towel. There is also a red level line indicator sticker on each side of the carrier. The recline indicators on the carrier are not visible when it’s seated correctly on the base. It’s always easier to install with LATCH if you loosen the LATCH strap all the way first, then pull the slack back through the belt path while pushing down on the base. SnugRides have always been easy to install rock solid with LATCH and that’s my preferred method of installation if installing outboard. All vehicles made after 1996 have seat belts that can lock in some way to hold a carseat tightly in place during routine driving. Most vehicles have switchable retractors but some vehicles or specific seating positions have locking latchplates instead. It’s important to know what your vehicle has and to understand how these features work before you install this carseat with a seat belt. See your vehicle’s owner’s manual for specific information on how to install a carseat in your vehicle using the seat belt. If you have questions, please visit our car-seat.org forum and we’ll be happy to help answer them. This can be a problem because it may interfere with the carrier sitting on the base properly. Twisting the buckle stalk up to 3 full twists, using as few full twists as possible, will usually solve this problem.

You must use LATCH to install a SnugRide base in these vehicles. Follow your instruction manual and do not thread the shoulder belt through the belt path. The carrier is secured directly to the vehicle with the lap portion of the seatbelt (do NOT place the shoulder belt through the belt path). This is very handy if you’re traveling by taxi or airplane. No need to lug the base around with you. However, you have to know how to lock the seatbelt in the vehicle that you’re going to be riding in. If you’d like to see an installation in action, watch Kecia. She and I use the same technique and she already had an excellent video made for her SnugRide 40 review, so I swiped it ??. Since the Click Connect SnugRides are rated from 4 lbs., having inserts available that boost the smaller babes up to the bottom slots, especially for the 30 LX model, makes parents feel more secure and less likely to add their own padding. As it stands, for the smallest babies, you’ll likely want to add more support in the form of tightly rolled blankets on the outside of the harness (see pics). As you can see in the pics above, the SnugRide 30 fits the preemie doll well with the rolled washcloth in the crotch area to prevent sliding down. Blankets or other padding should NEVER be added behind a child, no matter what. It also fits average newborns well, like Romeo, my 20.I suggest taking a pic with your phone of the splitter plate on the back of the seat so you remember how to put the harness back on when it’s time to rethread the harness. No need to remove the canopy—just shove it all the way back. Machine wash gentle cycle on cold and air dry. If you’re in a hurry, roll it in a towel and place in front of a fan and it shouldn’t take too long. As long as parents are cautious when re-threading the harness, this shouldn’t be a problem. DO NOT wash in the washing machine or use chemicals on it.

Graco does caution owners of the SnugRide to use their carseat only on Graco strollers, no doubt for safety and legal reasons. Some parents prefer not to create a travel system from the start and use a stroller frame, putting off buying a bigger stroller until their child is older, which isn’t such a bad idea. You can’t just “click-and-go” with the Baby Trend, like you can with the SnugRider Elite frame.The trade-off is that the harness is very easy to tighten and loosen and it can be removed and replaced if necessary. I know my husband and I did and that can be dangerous, especially when misuse rates top 90%. I’ve already covered some of the basics above regarding fit to your vehicle and child. So what do you see at the grocery store that you shouldn’t copy yourself? The SnugRide manual even tells you not to do it. Babies, even newborns, can wiggle down in the seat and strangle on the chest clip. The harness adjuster is smooth and reliable and it’s likely that you can find a stroller to meet your needs to use with your SnugRide 30 LX if you desire a travel system. The Graco SnugRide 30 LX Click Connect is a good rear-facing only infant seat that provides plenty of features for the price. No other compensation was provided.

Cleaning your car seat can be challenging. Big kids sneak in snacks and you find them mushed into every crevice. And little kids can turn tiny sips into giant puddles.

But the Grow and Go is easier than ever to keep clean. Ever try and get a kid who is arching their back in a car seat. No, well chances are it will happen at least once, because no one likes leaving the park. Harness holders make it easy to get “Archie” and “Floppy” into the seat.

Many of the participants in CR's study revealed the struggles and confusion they have experienced. But if I loosen the tight strap, it makes the other strap too loose.” CR has heard repeatedly that proper car seat installation and harnessing can feel intimidating at times for parents and caregivers. This also helps to control the movement of the child’s head during a crash. CR’s car seat experts have identified six common harnessing mistakes and have strategies on how to tackle them. Slide the chest clip as far down as possible, then use the harness adjuster strap at the front of the shell to tighten the harness—pull on the strap to tighten. The harness is tight enough when you can’t pinch any webbing between your fingers at the child’s shoulder. Last, position the chest clip at the child’s armpit level.

It is not only dangerous to have poorly adjusted straps but also can make it difficult to get the child in and out of the seat over time. If the strap height is incorrect, it can increase the amount a child's body is allowed to move in a crash. Pro tip: In a rear-facing seat, the harness height should be at or slightly below the shoulders. In a forward-facing seat, the harness height should be at or slightly above the shoulders. The harness can be adjusted by using a handle at the top of the seat, and it eliminates the need for parents to uninstall the seat. These harness straps may need to be individually threaded into a slot in the seat to fit properly. Once parents are familiar with the process, it will be easy to make adjustments as their child grows. Remember to always double-check the car seat owner’s manual for proper instructions on when and how to make these important adjustments. It’s important to do this while keeping one hand under both straps to help gauge the evenness between the two straps. This means that crash forces will hit hardest on the weaker portions of the child’s body. There have also been cases of strangulation from children who have squirmed their way down in the seat and gotten their neck caught on the chest clip. If you find that you don’t have enough slack in the harness to be able to reach the crotch buckle, loosen the harness by pushing down on the harness release button. This releases the tension so that you can pull on the harness to loosen it. To tighten most seats, simply pull on the harness adjuster strap. Because a twisted strap is narrower than a flat strap, it also puts more force over a smaller area, which would amplify the impact of the crash forces. If the strap twists while parents are re-threading the harness, undo the harness and re-thread it again. Use the trick demonstrated here for untwisting a strap through a buckle or chest clip.

Next, while keeping the triangle completely flat, slide the triangle entirely through the buckle. Last, see whether the strap has been untwisted and can be buckled properly. If the clip is positioned too high, there may be a risk that the clip could bruise or otherwise injure the child’s throat or neck. If the chest clip is too low on the child’s belly, it can apply too much force to the soft parts of the abdomen. A low chest clip also widens the space between the harness straps and increases the likelihood of the straps falling off of the child’s shoulders, leaving the child at risk of being ejected from the seat.

Search Search for: Search Latest Halloween Costumes Halloween Decor See All Infant Seat Installation Updated May 2020 9 out of 10 car seats are installed incorrectly (or something insane like that). Don’t be one of ’em. Maybe I’ll use LATCH, but can I even install LATCH in this position?” You then become utterly confused by the instructions and illustrations, which never make much sense anyway. Then your husband skips along and says, “ Screw it, honey, let’s just wing it. “ And that’s what 95% of people do when it comes to car seat installation. At least, that’s what I noticed at most of my car seat checks (I used to be a Child Passenger Safety Technician — CPST). I’m gonna give you a little crash course (no pun intended) so you understand the basic principles of proper car seat installation in your ride; then it’s up to you to figure out how to apply it to your specific situation. Let’s begin. When Anytime between 35-37 weeks is a good time to install your infant (or convertible) seat in preparation for the big day. If you go into labor before 35 weeks, your baby will probably spend some time in the NICU, so you’ll have plenty of time to figure it out in the meantime.

After 37 weeks, you could go into labor at any time — and believe me, you don’t want to be installing the car seat for the first time at the hospital(!!). So pick a nice, sunny, unhurried day and get cozy with your car seat and manual. If you still haven’t purchased a car seat, refer back here. Where to Install The first thing I want you to do is get out the Owner’s Manual for your CAR (yes, your car). Skip the Table of Contents (it’s worthless) and go straight back to the Index. Your manual will tell you exactly where you can and cannot safely install a car seat in your particular car. For example, some cars have LATCH tethers in the middle seat, but most do not (if you want to install it in the middle seat, you’ll probably have to use the seat belt, which is fine — just be aware). While head-on collisions are the most common, side-impact collisions are the most deadly. Putting your baby in the center of the vehicle increases the physical space between him and a car colliding into him from the side. If the center position doesn’t work out, you can install the seat on either side. There are pros and cons of each. The downside to the driver’s side (and it’s a big one if you fall into this category) is if you live in an urban environment and parallel park a lot (or just park on the side of the street), installing the seat on the driver’s side of the back seat forces you to be on the traffic-side of the car while getting the baby in and out (assuming we’re in America and driving on the right-hand side of the street. The opposite would be true in the UK and other lefty countries). I fall into this category, so I prefer to put my younger child’s seat behind the passenger side so I’m not risking my life (and hers) by standing out in traffic every day at preschool drop-off. These rush hour drivers are a littttle scary. I know this goes without saying, but a rear-facing car seat should NEVER go in the front seat. Why?
