Safety First With Graco 4ever All-in-One Convertible Car Seat

The Graco 4Ever All-in-One Car Seat, in Studio, gives you 10 years with one car seat. It’s comfortable for your child and convenient for you as it transitions from rear-facing car seat in a 5-point harness for your infant(4-40 lbs.) to forward-facing car seat with a 5-point harness (20-65 lbs.) to high-back belt-positioning booster (30-100 lbs.) to backless belt-positioning booster (40-120 lbs.). For a proper fit, the Simply Safe Adjust Harness System and 10-position headrest lets you easily adjust the harness and headrest together, on the spot, with no rethreading. The 6-position recline keeps your child comfortable, while the InRight LATCH system with 1-second attachment makes installation easy. It’s the only convertible car seat that truly goes from infant car seat to booster seat!

A real all-in-one

When we were shopping for a car seat for my son before he was born I wanted something that I wasn’t going to have to replace after only a couple of months to a year. I looked into a couple of different convertible car seats but to me this one was the winner simply for it’s great features. I also really love the fact that this will last him until he is ten years old so I won’t have to buy car seat after car seat. This all comes in one piece so that there is no assembly required. This makes life so much easier on my end especially because I am not handy while setting things up! It was also not difficult to install into the car because it was just a simple latch system that hooked right in. The padding in the seat is nice and comfortable and feels like it will make long car rides a lot more bearable.

It really is convertible

Even though my son is still in the infant part of this car seat I wanted to see how easy it was to turn it into a booster seat. It was very easy to turn it into a booster seat but I did need some help from my husband to put it back together. As I mentioned before I am not handy with set-ups. My baby loves the recline feature that is meant for rear-facing babies that are under forty pounds. We used it more often when he was a newborn that couldn’t hold his own head up but sometimes he enjoys using it still for napping in the car. I also love the cupholders because they fit anything from a sippy cup to a bottle.

The material of this car seat could be softer

Although the seat is well-padded, the fabric is very polyester feeling. It is not necessarily scratchy but it is definitely not as soft as I would like it to be. I especially had a problem when he was a newborn because I worried that it would irritate his skin. It’s not a deal-breaker by any means but I hope to see them add softer fabric in the future. Another thing that I want to mention is the weight of this car seat. This is definitely one of those car seats that you want to install into your car and leave there. It is not the most portable car seat. This is due to all of the features including the recline function which add a lot of weight. I don’t personally have a problem with this but if you are looking for a lightweight car seat you might not like this one.

The Graco 4ever is amazing!

I have really enjoyed using this car seat and I am happy that I don’t have to go through the process of choosing the perfect one ever again. Once my son grows out of this he will very likely not need a car seat or a booster. This is a great car seat for if you want to save money because it is a true all-in-one. It’s a little pricey for the initial purchase but it will be more fiscally responsible in the long run. I think this is an absolutely perfect choice of car seats for me and my family and I highly recommend checking it out if you think it would work for you!

  1. I absolutely love my all in one and so does my son. My son who is a preemie who was born at 27 weeks has been in it since the day he was released from the hospital. He is almost 2 and only weights 18 pounds and still fits perfectly in the rear facing infant insert and loves it because it adds extra support and extra tushion (cushion) as he says. We’re expecting our next lil bundles of joy anytime now (twins) and will be hopefully using the same seat for them as well. Thanks graco for such great and awesome products.

  2. I have had the 4 in 1, since 2014. One of the best car seats there is! It’s also so easy to take apart to wash the seat. My son is a messy car rider, which he likes to take snacks and drinks. So I have had to take apart the seat countless times. He also loves the seat himself! He always wants to buckle the top buckle by himself.
    We have done rear facing and forward facing (5 point harness) I have no complaints about the car seat! I just love the fact it grows with him and I do not have to buy another seat for his next stage.
