Last fall we went through our first big transition with Isla, moving her into her own room. Our biggest concern with this milestone was being able to hear and see her, we (I) wanted to be able to give her the same attentiveness as if she was still in her bassinet beside us. Even though we knew she is safe and content, there was always that uncertainty and constant asking yourself ‘is she okay?’ ‘I should check on her’ ‘Why isn’t she making any sound.’ As parents ,we rely on these fun and trust worthy gadgets called Baby Monitors. We made our way out to buybuy BABY and found the perfect monitor for both girls and you can find out which one and read my full review here.
buybuy BABY has one of the largest selections around for any and almost all of your parenting and baby needs.

Need a new carseat? They’ve got you by the hundreds!
Isla was just shy of 14 months when we decided to transfer her out of her bucket seat and into a ‘big girl’ seat. When we started our search for Isla’s next car seat we looked at every brand out there and after going over all the buckles, cushions, straps and anchors, we landed on the Graco® 4Ever™ All-in-1 Convertible Car Seat in Rockweave by an overwhelming response and recommendations from readers, friends and family.
Finding a new car seat is never easy, as a parent looking for a new protection device for your tiny human, you want to make sure you do your research. There are so many things to bring in to consideration, here are a few we thought of: Size, if we are looking to have more children in the future can we fit three seats across the back seat or how will it sit when we graduate to forward facing? Expiration Date, car seats can last anywhere from 6-10 years? Investment, car seats can be quite pricey, you really want to make sure your doing your research. Do they need 2 cup holders? Is this colour worth the extra $50? Weight Limit, will it work out over the next year to be able to transfer this car seat over to my youngest? And the list goes on.
When we arrived at buybuy BABY, we sat our Isla in a few handfuls of carseats and from there it was confirmed the Graco® 4Ever™ All-in-1 Convertible Car Seat in Rockweave would be the one that outshined the rest. This seat checked all the boxes and was the perfect fit for our growing little Isla, you should’ve seen her, she looked like she was sitting on a thrown and was loving it! Want to know the best part, if you are a new parent, this seat will last your from infancy, toddlerhood and onto the cusp of preteen years! This means that you will be able to transform your Graco Seat 4 times to fit your child’s safety needs, Rear-Facing, Forward Facing, High Back Booster Seat and Backless Booster Seat (something that not a lot of other convertible seats offer). Incredible!

We have had our Graco4Ever Rockweave for about 3 months now and absolutely love it, and so does Isla! The foam inserts are super comfy and great for longer car rides when Isla drifts off, the cup holders have solid bases and are great for snacks, water bottles and small toys. We do a lot of car sharing with my in-laws and we have to switch over car seats often when Grandma watches the girls, luckily the Graco4Ever has one of the easiest installations and doesn’t take a lot of time at all!
At the end of the day, after searching the internet, trying out different seats in store and testing out the Graco for the past 4 months, I couldn’t imagine going with any other seat for Isla. it was such a breeze being able to try literally every car seat out there when we visited buybuy BABY. I know that I am not alone when I say, the Graco4Ever is one of the best convertible carseats out there and we are excited to grow with it over the years to come.
I hope you found this post informative and that it has helped you when choosing your first or next seat for your little one. Leave me comment or any questions about the Graco® 4Ever™ All-in-1 Convertible Car Seat in Rockweave? I’d love to chat!
