Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Car Seat Review & Giveaway

First there's the infant car seat, then the convertible car seat, then a first booster, sometimes followed by a second booster. Car seats are like maternity clothes, you think you're going to need just one kind, then you realize that little bodies grow the exact same way your pregnant body grew. Obvious, right? But who would have also guessed that their car seat needs would grow right along with them?

The beauty of the Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Car Seat is that it allows your child to grow at his own rate. Start out using it as a 5 point harness slightly reclined car seat and as your child grows graduate to using it as a booster with a supportive back, and finally as a backless booster. The fact that you only have to buy one car seat that does all three is really quite ingenious!

Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Car Seat Pros:
- Memory foam padding for extra comfort.
- Adjustable headrest.
- Large range of patterns and colors to chose from.
- Cup holder and secret armrest compartment for stashing toys.
- Three reclining positions.
- Extended five point harness designed to hold a 65lb child.
- Graco build and attention to detail.
- It retails between $150 and $180, a really great price for such a highly safety rated car seat.

Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Car Seat Cons:
- The Nautilus isn't designed to be used rear facing. So if your child outgrows his infant car seat before turning one you'll need to also purchase a convertible car seat until he can sit forward facing.
- It's not the easiest car seat to take apart and clean in case of a spill or a car sick incident. That said, once you have managed to remove the car seat cover all of it is fully machine washable!
