We bought the graco snugride infant car seat for our daughter when she was newborn. We loved it. This car seat is an excellent car seat.
The car seat was very easy to install. It comes with an adjustable base which is awesome. You can adjust the base so the car seat remains level after installed in your car. This is new as the older models didn't have an adjustable car base and it was so hard to get the car seat level in the car. This makes it much less likely that your child's head will fall forward as an infant.
The portability of the car seat is great. You just pull the release button and pull up on the car seat to carry it around with you. Just make sure your child is buckled in the seat when you pick up the seat. I've done that before. Thought I buckled her in in the house and went to pick up the seat and she wasn't.
Graco has always been one of my favorite brands and they came through again on this product. I would definitely buy this again if I were to have any more children.
