Graco Nautilus Car Seat Review


I received a Graco Nautilus car seat to review recently – it was perfect timing as Bugs was just getting too big for his first stage car seat and the Nautilus is perfect as it is Group 1, 2 and 3 (9-36kgs) – so this is the only car seat that we will ever need for him now! Which is brilliant and what i think makes it a brilliant buy at just £129.95 on Amazon!

What do we love about the Nautilus –
My first impressions on taking it out of the box were that it is a big sturdy car seat. As you can see from the photo above Bugs looks extremely comfortable and happy on his first try :O)
The seat is very spacious & comfy & all of the straps are really well padded which is great as there is nothing worse than having straps cutting into your shoulders or neck!
The Nautilus is really easy to fit into the car – we have a VW Golf & and Audi and it fits well into both and feels really safe and secure once fitted! Which is crucial for me – if it moved about at all I would be having panic attacks every time we went out – but thankfully when fitted properly it will hardly budge!
The drinks holder is really handy and a great size also it has two hidden compartments too which Bugs now keeps a few small toys in – I also put my car keys in there when getting him in and out so I have use of both hands :))
The cover is completely machine washable which is vital with a toddler/child in my opinion! Especially for those that suffer with travel sickness!!

Happy in the Nautilus
What could be improved?
The only thing that I would change on this car seat would be that it would recline back further!
I would highly recommend the Graco Nautilus – We are extremely happy with it – Bugs is super comfy and rides safely in style & will last him for YEARS!  :O)
