Graco is a long-time trusted name in baby products — particularly their infant car seats. Known for safety and simplicity, Graco car seats are reliable, durable, and they work seamlessly with the companion strollers. If you're looking to get a Graco car seat for your infant, here are some of the top picks to help you narrow your search.
Parents know the struggle is real when it comes to proper installation of a car seat. But gone are the days of body slamming your weight into the car seat to ensure it buckles with the tightest possible fit. With SnugLock®, you can literally install the car seat in less than 60 seconds — using either the LATCH system in your car OR the seatbelt if your car doesn't have LATCH.
The adjustable base has four reclining positions, and it's perfect for rear-facing up to 35 pounds and 32 inches. Easily adjust the straps for a perfect fit on your baby, and the cover is easy to remove for washing — you don't even have to take the car seat out of the car to get it off! When it's time to stroll, easily release the seat from the base, and install it on your Graco stroller. And if the sun's a little bright, the retractable canopy shades your little one.

Much like theSnugRide® SnugLock® 35 Elite Infant Car Seat, the DLX model is an easy-to-install car seat with a bevy of safety and comfort features. Of note is the anti-rebound bar, which prevents additional movement or jarring in the unfortunate event of an accident; Baby has that added level of protection.
Select the perfect amount of reclining position with the five levels, and one-hand attach and release makes putting the seat on the base and getting it out a breeze. It works seamlessly with a Graco stroller travel system, and the Silent Shade™ canopy ensures you can adjust the shade coverage without disturbing your little one! Supportive padding ensures your baby's head remains stable, and padded harness straps provide maximum comfort.

When side-impact safety features on vehicles became standard, it provided an added measure of comfort and confidence as a car owner. The same is true with the TrueShield Advanced Side-Impact Protection found on this Graco car seat model. The special design ensures your baby has an added layer of protection in the event of an accident.
Much like the previous two car seat models, the LX with TrueShield Technology also features easy installation and sun shade. With four recline positions, there's the perfect fit for your little one. And the car seat easily transitions from car to stroller. Use it for rear-positioning up to 35 pounds and 32 inches.

Much like the previous three models, the Graco SnugRide SnugLock Extend2Fit 35 Infant Car Seat has all of the coveted safety features new parents desire — easy install, a LATCH-connected base, one-hand adjustable handle, and a canopy for shade and privacy. In addition to all of these key features, though, this model also features a four-position extension panel that offers extra space as your baby grows. As babies are required by law to be rear-facing — up to two years in some states — this additional 3.5 inches of space is welcome for both baby and parents.
Four reclining positions ensure the perfect position no matter the car, and the seat is compatible with both LATCH and seatbelt systems. Add an anti-rebound bar for an added measure of safety.
