Mom Bloggers get together for one night to talk about Graco!
One major change is the fact babies must now face backwards a whole extra year!
We learned the SnugRide Click Connect 40 is the only infant car seat that provides rear-facing protection for babies from birth to 2 years old, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. The infant car seat grows with babies from four pounds up to 40 pounds, so parents can keep their children rear facing longer, while making sure they stay comfortable as they grow. The Graco SnugRide Click Connect is available at Babies “R” Us (online & in stores). There are two fashion choices too: Mena & Moonstruck.
We were all able to touch the carseat and experience the ease of use for ourselves. And every blogger invited was a given a BRAND NEW GRACO CAR SEAT! Can you say we were all smiling from ear to ear!

In addition to learning about the new products from Graco, we were also able to relax in style at the Country Inns & Suites in Buckhead (Atlanta). Before the meeting started, my family checked into our room to get settled before I headed downstairs. My children love anything related to a hotel so they were excited to be there. We were able to stay in a room with 2 queen beds, which allowed just enough space for us.
I loved that when I walked into the room, there was this wonderful
SWAG complimentary guest bag. It had slippers, a water cup (that I am using as I type this), a coffee mug, chocolates and body scrub! I loved it because it was so unexpected. The bed slept really well although I couldn’t really enjoy it because my daughter wanted to sleep with me. It was fine starting out, but if you have a young one you already know they will practically KICK YOU OUT OF YOU OWN BED!
In the morning, we (my family) all went downstairs and enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. My children wanted to try everything from waffles, oatmeal, cereal and more! The staff was helpful and courteous. This was actually the first time I have ever stayed at a Country Inns & Suites but it will not be the last. We had nothing but a great stay!
Funfact: Country Inns & Suites has 483 hotels operating throughout the world and 43 under development, primarily in te US, Canada, India & Mexico. Great rates with NO booking fees!
From Graco: The Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 – the first and only newborn to two-year infant car seat that actually grows with your baby from four pounds all the way up to 40 pounds. The car seat is designed for a parent on the go. The infant car seat can be easily removed from the base and used as a carrier when the infant is small, providing portability and convenience so you can easily move your infant in and out of the car without disturbing them. The American Academy of Pediatrics recently made the recommendation to keep all children in rear-facing car seats until the age of 2. Graco set out to make this product so parents can keep infants rear facing longer while still keeping them comfortable.
