Cat, Galloping

Yep, I've always heard that the biggest fight you'll ever have with your partner is trying to install the car seat!


My husband ended up attaching the second car seatbase to the snap n go since we weren't using it. It worked perfectly then and folded up just fine. That was our work around! lol


Oh no! We registered for a SNG but with the Baby Trend carseat (same brand) so hopefully we will be ok. DH is NOT as handy as yours and I am very low on patience....


I didn't even attempt to put the SNG together--I'm useless at that kind of thing. But my hubby is great at it so I turned it over to him.

He did get it put together fairly quickly and it works just fine (with the Graco) but we had a piece leftover. I'm not sure if that's good or bad but whatever...so far, the SNG hasn't come apart nor has the seat/baby dropped off of it!


Yikes and okay so as soon as I get done here I’m off for some mad googling for tips on how to assemble SNG with a Graco. My lovely recipe for marital bliss/disaster is in the mail as we speak.


Jenn, don't worry! It works fine with the Baby Trend carseat. This is our setup and we haven't had any issues.

Jenn--The SNG comes already set up for the Baby Trend car seat so you don't even have to adjust anything.

As for the Graco set up....it really leaves a lot to be desired. If I had this to do over again, I would buy the new Graco Snug Rider--the lightweight carrier made by Graco. Thumbs down to Baby Trend.


We had a SNG (in fact we still have it, I could have shipped it to you, fully assembled) and I loved it. I hope you get as much mileage out of yours and that memories of assembling it are driven out of your mind by the adorable face of its occupant.


Thank you for posting this. I was excited to see that you had a healthy baby after dealing with infertility. I am trying to have a baby and surf the Web praying for success stories. You are inspiring!
