Graco Turn2Me 3-in-1 Car Seat Review

Looking for a car seat that grows with your baby? Check out the Graco Turn2Me 3-in-1 Car Seat, a car seat that can be used from birth to 100 pounds.

I received a sample from Graco to facilitate this post. This page may contain affiliate links.

 The pregnancy test is positive and grandbaby number three is arriving next year and at the end of February! My daughter is pregnant with baby number three and this grandparent is so excited. I get to be a grandma to a baby again and I can't wait!

 Finding out that you are expecting a baby is exciting and is a moment to be celebrated. Babies are so awesome! I remember 6 years ago when my daughter was expecting her first baby and I was going to be a grandma. Then grandbaby number two arrived in 2020. Baby #3 is due February 2024 and this grandma is already shopping for the new bundle of joy. I was gifted a car seat for the new baby and I am excited to share my review with you.

Turn2Me™ 3-in-1 Rotating Car Seat

 A couple weeks after my daughter shared the good news of expecting a new baby, Graco reached out to me and asked if I wanted to check out some new baby products from Graco and Baby Jogger. Such perfect timing! I looked at the list of baby items, which included car seats, strollers, and a bassinet and decided that the Graco Turn2Me 3-in-1 Car Seat would be the best baby product to review. My daughter already had a Baby Jogger City Select 2 Stroller and a baby bassinet.

The Graco car seat arrived the other day and I was excited to check it out. I love checking out new baby products and seeing all the latest features. My youngest kids are teenagers so baby items have improved a whole lot since they were babies. I want you to check out the description of the Graco Turn2Me 3-in-1 Car Seat before I give my car seat review.

Graco Turn2Me 3-in-1 Car Seat Description

 The Graco Turn2Me 3-in-1 Car Seat turns so you don't have to twist, helping you to get your baby in and out of the car with ease! Simply turn the seat to face you for easier buckling, then rotate it back to rear-facing. You'll hear it "click" back into position for a safe and comfy ride. This 3-in-1 car seat features 3 modes of use to grow with your child—from 4-100 lbs! The car seat is Graco ProtectPlus Engineered to help protect your little one in frontal, side, rear, and rollover crashes.

First Impressions of the Graco Turn2Me 3-in-1 Car Seat

 My first impression of the Graco Turn2Me 3-in-1 Car Seat was this is a heavy and sturdy car seat! The car seat from Graco weighs 30 pounds, which indicates that it is made from quality materials. This is definitely a car seat that you keep in the car. While it is made for babies from birth at 4 pounds, this is not a seat that you can use to carry the baby in. 

So many features that I love about the Graco Turn2Me 3-in-1 Car Seat

~ Turn2Me Feature

What made me select this car seat was the Turn2Me feature. The Turn2Me feature allows you to turn the car seat while it is in rear-facing mode to easily put the baby into the car seat. I love that you only need one hand to turn the car seat. This makes it easy to get the baby in and out of the car.

~ 3-in-1 Design

 The 3-in-1 car seat features 3 modes of use to grow with your child from 4-100 lb. So you can use this baby car seat from the first ride home from the hospital all the way to a high-back booster seat. 

~ 4-Position Recline

The seat's 4-position recline helps you find the right angle for your little one to ride safely at every stage. So if the baby falls asleep, you can easily recline the car seat. This feature is also great for newborn babies, no more having to worry about their little head being supported at the right angle.

~ Steel-Reinforced Frame

This car seat is made with a steel-reinforced frame that provides strength and durability for 10 years of use.

~ No-Rethread Harness System

The harness is so easy to adjust as your baby grows with a No-Rethread Harness System that has 10 positions.

~ Removable Plush Infant Inserts

The Graco car seat is so soft for your baby with plush infant inserts. The removable provides a safe, snug fit for your baby and are removable when your little one gets bigger.

~ Easy installation 

The SnugLock technology helps parents install the seat in less than one minute. I love all the stickers and indicators that are all over the car seat in both English and Spanish! This is a huge help for both new parents, grandparents, and babysitters to make sure the car seat is installed correctly in the car. 

The easy-to-read level indicator also helps to eliminate installation guesswork if the car seat is in the correct position.

Improvements that I would like to see on this Graco car seat

~ A harness adjustment sticker on the car seat

 This car seat had so many unique features that I loved but there is one feature that the seat was lacking. The car seat needed a sticker on it to show how to adjust the car seat harness. The harness on the car seat was very tight and snug when I took the seat out of the box. I was able to figure out how to tighten the harness by pulling on the strap but I had no clue how to loosen the harness straps. There was no visible button to loosen the straps.

 I had to read the instructions several times to figure things out. I was frustrated. I even joked with my husband about new parents not being able to get their baby in the car seat to leave the hospital. Finally, I found the answer to how to loosen the car seat harness in section 5 of the instruction book. As a grandma and a babysitter, I would not have the instruction book available to read. So a sticker on the car seat with instructions on how to loosen and tighten the harness would be awesome. 

My daughter's reaction to the Graco Turn2Me 3-in-1 Car Seat

 My daughter was excited to hear that I received a car seat for the future baby. That will be one less baby product that she will have to purchase. When I showed my daughter a photo of the car seat box, she was excited that the car seat rotated. As a mom of two kids in car seats, my daughter knows the frustration of getting the baby into a car seat. 

 When the new baby arrives, the older two kids will still be in car seats. So having a rotating car seat feature will make it easier to leave the house with three kids.

My baby is 12 already and my son’s girlfriend child is almost 2. I’ll have to send him this car seat recommendation. I love that the swivel makes it easier to get kids in and out of the car. Wish I had that when my kids were babies.
