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!!

Not only does it give your long-legged child 5 additional inches of leg room rear-facing but it also is Graco’s first convertible car seat that can rear-face up to 50 lbs. Get a preview or sneak peek of the Graco Extend2Fit in our Baby Gizmo video below!
