Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Car Seat

The lovely people at Graco sent us have a shiny new carseat in the form of the new Graco Nautilus 3 in 1 to try out. I was quite excited when it arrived , as much as Oli was when he saw a huge box which before meanie Daddy threw into the recycling it was a boat , spaceship and most importantly a tunnel.

We waited until Daddy was home to put the head support on and adjust the straps. It was quick & simple to put into the right position for Oli's age. The head support is easily adjusted as is the seat recline which can both be done with one hand.

I feel more reassured that Oli will be safer using this carseat then our old one as the nautilus has many safety features such as the side impact protection , lock off mechanism and a five point safety harness.

As it's a 3 in 1 it's suitable from the age of 9 months to 12 years so in reality it grows with your child. So with purchasing the nautilus you're instantly getting a bargain because you don't have to make another purchase when the next stage comes around. Don't worry about dirty seat covers - they easily come off and can go in the washing machine.

We've yet to fit the nautilus as Daddy's been at work with the car , but it will be fitted this weekend ready for a bloggers event that we are going to.

In the mean time it has replaced Oli's usual living room chair , he has been making good use of the integrated cup holder which is a fantastic bonus to the seat as it should stop me having to constantly reach round to grab drinks from him and the floor.

It also didn't take him long to discover the hidden storage in the arm rests , I fear this is where I'm going to find future missing objects.
