Graco Milestone All-in-One Car Seat - The Only Car Seat You'll Ever Need | Review ♥

I don't know about you, but when it comes to baby and toddler products I want to have things that are uncomplicated, easy to use and beneficial in some way to my child. I can't stand products that are overly complicated, where it takes an absolute age to assemble them and now that I'm a mother of two, I simply don't have the time to faff around with products that take too long to set up properly. We were recently sent the new Graco Milestone All-in-One car seat to review, marketed as the 'only car seat you'll ever need' (and that statement's not wrong!) and thankfully this car seat is so user friendly that it's actually a parents dream.

My mini product tester Tyler Lee has really put the car seat through it's paces and I'm delighted to say that he loves his new car seat - he told me so on the way to preschool one morning and as a parent, it's great to know that my child likes a product that he has to use on a daily basis.

The Graco Milestone All-in-One car seat is perfect for children of all ages - babies, toddler and beyond (up to 12 years!). It's a multi-group car seat, meaning it can be used as baby's first car seat (up to 13kg) in the rear facing position. Once a child reaches 9kg, and until they reach 18kg, the car seat can then be used in the forward facing position, securing the child with the 5-point harness. Finally, the car seat can be used as a high-back booster seat for older children (15-36kg), where the seat belt is used to secure the child into the seat. As you can see, the Graco Milestone All-in-One really is the only car seat you'll ever need and the longevity that it offers is fantastic. Honestly, car seats can be so complicated and a bit of a pain to use, but this one is so easy to use and it makes getting my toddler in the car a fuss-free task.

The car seat itself looks very sturdy and comfortable for the child. It offers side impact protection, a multi-position headrest, cup holder and padded support for babies. The multi-stage positions are so easy to get into place too, you just click it into place and the seat moves accordingly. We're using the car seat in stage three position with Tyler Lee, still using the 5-point harness to secure him in. This is so easy to adjust too, there's a little flap that you lift up on the seat that allows you to loosen or tighten the harness depending on the child's needs. There's a guide on the car seat itself which indicates the stages and what age range they're suitable for and this is very helpful.

As I said above, the headrest on the car seat is multi-position, offering a choice of ten positions, all of which can be achieved by squeezing the red button at the top of the seat and pulling it into the position you want. The harness can also be adjusted with the red button, which is really helpful, especially if you have a squirming toddler who doesn't want his mummy or daddy agonising over different buttons, etc. while all they want to do is get going and on their way.

Tyler Lee has been so comfortable in his car seat. He's fallen asleep in it multiple times and the side supports have meant that his head doesn't droop downwards, he's able to sleep comfortably and safely in the seat. The arm rests on the seat allow him to sit comfortably and these are great for longer journeys. The car seat is quite roomy - a great feature as Tyler Lee is such a tall boy and I'd hate to see him looking cramped in the car.

The removable cup holder is another great feature as Tyler Lee is always drinking and snacking in the car and it's good for him to have access to his cup without it spilling everywhere because he has to hold it (he drifts off to sleep in the car a lot). He's been a great product tester for the seat and has really put it through it's paces, especially on the cleaning front! He's spilt ice-cream, the contents of his roll and a carrot cake bar on the seat but thankfully it's really easy to clean with it's removable padding.

I'd highly recommend the Graco Milestone All-in-One car seat to any parent who is a fan of fuss-free baby and toddler products, who is looking for both great value and longevity from their child's car seat and who is wanting to provide the utmost safety and comfort for their child when traveling in the car - and lets face it, what parent wouldn't?

We are so impressed with the Graco Milestone All-in-One and only wish we had had it for Tyler Lee from the start. We now want to get another one for Beau and I think that fact speaks for itself in terms of how much we like the car seat.

The Graco Milestone All-in-One car seat is €224.99 and is available from Halfords, Smyths and other outlets nationwide.
