Graco Milestone All-In-One Car Seat Review

Since Oscar was a baby and now with Archie we have had a fair few car seats. Some in my car and duplicates in Greg’s. Car seats cost a fortune and changing them when your child reaches different age or weight limit can be expensive. When we went to the Graco ambassador event a few months ago I saw their Milestone All-In-One Car Seat for the very first time. I was shocked when I learnt that the car seat is the only car seat you will ever need to own! This car seat will grow with your child from birth up to 36kg (12 years!) making it one of the only car seats you will ever need which is great.

I love the name of the seat ‘Milestone’ as as a parent you count so many milestones with you children and with these milestones often comes expense… bigger sized clothes and shoes, new toys and of course new car seats, now with the Milestone car seat you can take that off of your ever growing shopping list.

Archie is 23 months old now and was 21 months when we started using our new Milestone car seat. The car seat is easy to fit, it took me about three minutes to fit securely into the car. The convertible car seat has three different modes: transitioning from rear-facing infant car seat (birth to 13kg) to forward-facing 5-point harness seat (9-18kg) to high-back booster (15-36kg). For the best and most comfortable fit for your child, the no re-thread harness system and 10-position headrest allows you to adjust harness and headrest together with just one hand.

Side impact protection provides the best head protection at every stage and features a steel reinforced frame giving you peace of mind that your little one is always safe. The safety features on this car seat are outstanding, we were talked through all the key points and Graco don’t mess around, they have done so much research into making the safest car seat for your precious little bundle.

Another fantastic feature is you don’t have to fiddle around and re-thread the straps as your little one grows, the car seat really does grow with your child in one pull of a button. The headrest has 10 positions for optimum comfort and also has 2 reclining positions so when Archie is tired I can recline it back so he is more comfortable. The seat is so plush and comfortable and has a durable, steel reinforced frame built into the seat provides peace of mind and added safety for your child. It also has side impact protection in the headrest as well. The seat cover comes off easily and can be machine washed and you don’t have to take out the harness to get the cover off it just simply slips over the top. The cup holder is great too, at the moment Archie puts his comforter and dummy in there but as he gets older he can keep his drink bottle in it.

Graco Milestone All-In-One Convertible Car Seat

To sum up I think this is a great car seat and great value too and you can’t beat a product that will grow with your child, save your money and keep your little one nice and safe in the car! It has an RRP of £179.99 but amazon currently has it at an then amazing price of £114.99!

 

Disclaimer: I was sent the Milestone car seat for the purpose of this review, however all opinions are honest and my own and this is truly a great car seat!

 

I Am A Generation Graco Ambassador & Our Trip To London Zoo

Generation Graco Badge FINAL

Last weekend we had the most fantastic day at London Zoo thanks to Graco. We arrived there early on the Saturday morning and had a lovely breakfast put on for us and then we were shown the different products in the ‘Generation Graco’ range. It was great to get hands on and be shown by the experts how all the products work and how great they really are. One thing that I came away from the day which really struck a cord it is that Graco products are high end products at affordable prices. Each product from the fantastic milestone car seat which I will have a full review of for you in the next few weeks to smaller products like the Swivi Seat Booster 3-In-1 Booster are all so well made and so durable but the prices truly surprised me, they are such amazing value.

The Milestone car seat for example has a RRP of only £179.99 and is the only car seat you will ever need, lasting from newborn until your highback booster that you would use roughly up until the age of 11 depending an weight. I tried Archie in the car seat and he seemed very comfortable!

We then went outside and watched the Penguin show then had a lovely lunch where Oscar had his face painted as a Tiger. The Graco team and the lovely PR girls were so helpful and the boys loved playing with them. The Graco team also talked through every product with us and the amount of research that has gone into every car seat, stroller etc is astounding.

I then saw Oscar jumping up and down as the children’s animal surprise arrived which he had been so excited about all day, he even trird to get it out of the PR team what the surprise was. Two of the zoo keepers brought two Meerkat’s for the children to look at. We then went off around the zoo for the rest of the day which was really special as Archie is now old enough to get excited about the animals, where as when we had been to the zoo before with him he was only a few months old. His face pressed against the glass with the monkeys on the other side of it was priceless! I also loved seeing the baby Gorilla who was the same age as Archie and also born in December 2014 they were pretty much the same size.

We had such a fantastic day at the zoo and it was also great for me to learn more about Graco as a brand. I am so excited to have been picked as a Generation Graco ambassador and can’t wait to show you my reviews over the next few months and also show you how fantastic all of the Graco products really are!

Thank you Graco and Cohn and Wolfe for such a fantastic day!
