Most Helpful Reviews on the Graco SnugRide 35 LX Infant Car Seat.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 1/25/2010 – We purchased the Snugride 35 in Flint and could not be happier. The picture does not do justice. The padding is very soft and plush. Will be very comfortable for baby. With the 35 lb and 32 inch max, this is definitely gonna last > 1yr. The side impact safety feature makes this a 5. The only con is that the infant head support is way too big for a newborn….  (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – 12/2/2010 – … After having used it for 14 weeks, I have to say I’m not particularly enthusiastic about the Snugride 35. Some days I just plain hate it…. My list of irritants: 1. Floppy Head Syndrome (Actually less of an irritant and more of a safety issue)…. 2. The Canopy… The canopy may be self-supporting, but the way it is attached to the seat seems rather loose….3. The Harness…. 4. The Weight…. 5. The Size…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 2/14/2012 – Doesn’t get much better than this. Seriously, if you want something less bulky/heavy, then you’ll end up with a different brand/product that will have its own set of cons. The bulkiness is not a problem unless you’re trying to fit 2+ of these side by side in a compact or mid-sized vehicle. As for the heaviness, you may start to notice it when your kid begins to weigh about 15 pounds…. The only thing we’re still having issues with is adjusting the shoulder strap height…. (read more and buy it at Diapers.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 4/16/2012 – …  Super cozy soft comfortable…. it is a heavier carseat but worth it for the comfortability and space to be able to use it longer. i’ve seen many carseats in nurshry and had to get babies in and out, still by far the easiest to buckle and unbuckle and not made with poor quality parts. wipes up super easy almost like it’s scotch guarded…. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 3/19/2012 – Received this carseat as a gift and love it! I use it in the car with a snap and go stroller and also with the adaptor and uppababy stroller. Perfect in all situations. My daughter is tall for her age and have had no issues with her still fitting comfortably in this at 6+ months.  (read more and buy it at Giggle.com)
