As most of you know by now, we’re having our first baby! Obviously, we’re very ecstatic. In fact, we can’t wait for the little one’s arrival. While we’ve got ways to go, preparing can never be too early. Especially when you’re juggling everything between all the morning sickness and hubby’s military schedule.

I’m currently in (the last week of) my first trimester, and it is literally getting the best of me. I have very few good days and quite a handful of bad ones where nausea, headaches, upset stomach, and even sore muscles sets in. Leaving me a little time to start figuring things out for our baby. As much as hubby is trying, the military demands a lot of his time too. We make do on researching the baby products and brands that we can trust. First up on our list are car seats. We need to make sure that the car seat we will use will bring our baby home safe and sound. Believe it or not, we found out that close to half of infant car seats were installed incorrectly! So we had to find one that eliminates the guesswork from the installation process. The answer to our needs is the Graco® SnugRide® SnugLock™ 35 DLX Infant Car Seat.

Graco® SnugRide® SnugLock™ 35 DLX Infant Car Seat.PIN IT! What we love about it is that it’s super easy to install, in just three steps! Everything is entirely straightforward, and we didn’t have to question the actions we took. No wondering if the car seat was installed correctly.

Here’s the 3 steps:

  • 1. Release the SnugLock™
  • 2. Secure the seatbelt
  • 3. Lock the seatbelt in place with the SnugLock™, wait for the CLICK, and you’re done!

Check out the video hubby, and I made to share our ‘When it Clicks’ moment …

That clicking sound is very comforting letting us know that the car seat was securely installed. Now we have one less thing to worry about as we get ready for our little one’s arrival!

    This looks like an awesome car seat and I love that it’s so easy to install. We struggled when we were getting ready to put our first car seat in! And you look so adorable and happy!

  • Robin Rue

    I had a Graco car seat for my boys when they were babies. It is the best brand out there.

  • Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh

    I have seen this on the tv commercials, and I am thrilled that they have come up with an infant seat that is simple to install. Pulling straps, making sure the little level is straight, using my knee in the base to get it tight enough…the list goes on and on!

  • Kristina

    Graco is a good brand! I used them with my kids and they were really reliable. I look the base and how it locks into the car for added safety.

  • Janel

    I love how it is so much easier now to install car seats then it was back in the days when my kids were in car seats. Newer cars have anchors to attach the car seat to as compared to the older cars right ?

  • Laura

    I don’t miss fighting with the car seat that’s for sure! I love how easy this one is to install. I will definitely keep this seat in my mind for my next kiddo!

    Hooray for the last week of the 1st trimester! The 2nd one is a little easier. It was my favorite, because morning sickness was over and “I feel giant” hadn’t kicked in yet. Graco makes such fabulous car seats. I really love that you can install this one in three steps. It leaves a lot less room for potentially harmful human errors!

  • Jean

    Graco has always been my favorite car seat brand! This one looks so easy! I haven’t used an infant car seat in 2 years and I cannot believe how far they have come in that short period. Congrats to you and your husband on your baby and thank you both for his service!

    The travel system car seat that we bought when my daughter was newborn was a nightmare to get in… It would take a good 10 minutes each time…

  • Imogen
