Giveaway: Graco Nautilus 3-in-One Car Seat


Congratulations to our winner, sleepy_mommy! Thanks for entering and keep checking the Daily Buzz every week for more chances to win cool kid stuff.

How could something as simple as a car seat be so confusing!? I don't know about you, but I have questions. Can my 4-year-old, 30-pound daughter go in a booster yet? Are backless boosters as safe as boosters with high-backs?

So all this week, my fellow Daily Buzz parenting bloggers and I are talking with safety experts both on and off CafeMom about child passenger seat safety.

But before that, how'd you like to win a new car seat? Look for contests today in Pregnancy Buzz, Baby Buzz, Big Kid Buzz, and right here in Toddler Buzz, where I'm giving away one Graco Nautilus 3-in-One convertible toddler seat/booster seat.

One mom who replies to this post with a comment by 11:59pm (EST) on Friday, January 30, 2009 will be chosen at random to receive the Nautilus 3-in-One Car Seat (Bravo style)*.

Each mom can only win one per channel, no matter how many times you comment.

To enter, you have to ask the experts a question:

What confuses you most about the installation or use of your child passenger seat? What car seat question would you most like an answer to?

The Nautilus, worth $180, includes a 5-point harness for children 20 pounds to 65 pounds. It converts into a high-back belt positioning booster for kids 30 to 100 pounds, and a backless booster for 40 to 100 pounds.
