Graco Extend2Fit Convertible Car Seat Preview for Extended Rear-Facing

At the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas last month, we were able to get up close and personal with what just may be the answer to your rear-facing car seat woes about the child with the bent legs! We all know by now that the Academy of Pediatrics is recommending to keep your babies rear-facing in the car until AT LEAST 2 years old. If you decide to rear-facing longer, two thumbs up because it’s just safer! But we also know that parents get concerned when their toddlers legs are bent when they are rear-facing (even though that is totally okay!). Graco has heard your cries, parents!

Meet the Graco Extend2Fit Convertible Car seat!!

We are looking at convertibles. We have looked at Diono, Graco, and Evenflo. We think we are going to have a tall kid. My wife is tall and I am 6’4”. We have a Britax infant seat and want a convertible that will go all the way to a booster. I would like to keep the boy rear facing as long as we can. I know there are a few that have larger height then the Graco Extend to fit but not sure which ones. Can you please respond?
