After reviewing all of the “baby” car seats, the Graco Affic Backless Booster car seat is great! I was so excited to try one out from Graco. It is easy to install, easy to move from car to car, and easy to transition to (for kiddos, maybe not for mom) and it seems so small compared to the all-in-ones or the infant carrier.
Graco Affix Backless Booster
This backless booster is for children from ages 4-10, from 40-100lbs, and from 40-57 inches tall. It has a one hand front adjust latch system; I found it super easy to install by pushing it to the back of the car seat, latching it in and tightening it with the adjustment straps on the front of the seat. It even has a handy cup holder and snack tray – how nice is that?! It comes in quite a few “grown-up” looking colors like purple, black, and teal. Oh! And super nice feature… the seat cushion is machine-washable.
I got the chance to try this car seat out with a friend of mine and her little dude. I have to imagine he loved the freedom of a backless booster, and hanging in his new big boy car seat! Hopefully it will allow more independence for him too with self-buckling. I was a little scared for his mama though – adjusting to her big boy all of a sudden not wrapped in the safety of a padded seat… but we all have to grow up right? Even the little ones! And… this chair is crash tested and meets US standards, so of course it is safe. Hopefully she will soon be able to appreciate the freedom of her little dude’s independent buckling in.
