Will this car seat be safe to transport our newborn home from the hospital?
The 4Ever 4-in-1 Car Seat is suitable for babies starting at 4 pounds.
Graco 4Ever 4-in-1 Car Seat gives you 10 years with one car seat. It's comfortable for your child and convenient for you as it transitions from rear-facing infant car seat (4-40 lbs.) to forward-facing 5-point harness seat (22–65 lbs.) to high-back belt-positioning booster (30–100 lbs.) to backless belt-positioning booster (40-120 lbs.). For a proper fit, the Simply Safe Adjust Harness System and 10-position headrest lets you adjust the harness and headrest together, with no rethreading. The 6-position recline keeps your child comfortable, while the InRight LATCH system with one-second attachment makes installation easy. It's the only seat that truly goes from baby to booster.

First "complaint" - a good amount of reviews commented that their baby's head would fall dramatically forward when s/he slept. I saw someone wrote that they put the infant insert back in and that raised their baby up enough to fix the problem. I've included photos to show what a difference this made for us. I was worried that this would have an impact on the "breathability" this seat has over the infant carrier we were upgrading from, but my son still emerges from this new car seat considerably less sweaty (if at all).
Second "complaint" - the warning labels get very hot and can burn your child. Because of this warning, I knew to check the labels before putting him in the carseat. I live in Texas and we are in 100*+ weather and my vehicle spends all day outside while I'm at work, baking in the sun. I drive about 4-5 miles to pick him up after work, and by the time I arrive the labels are perfectly fine for him to be against. I have not experienced any issues (yet), but I still recommend you check them every time, just in case.
I'm a new parent, and I have to say that the coolest thing of this whole "milestone" was watching my son look around while he was in the 4Ever seat for the first time. I hadn't realized how little of his surroundings he could see in the infant carrier until we put him in this seat!
Both recline to the same point when sitting on a flat surface! They have different intervals to get there, but both get to the same point. Taking a closer look, though, the Safety First model will sit in a more reclined position when the line is parallel whereas the 4 ever required more incline (books) to achieve a centered bubble (child would be more upright in the Graco than the Safety First). See photo. I stacked booked under the hind-side to adjust to the proper level. Both seats are in the most reclined setting.
The Graco has more height in the headrest. Significantly so. I was surprised how little adjusting there is with the Safety First.
The Graco is more narrow so will fit in the car better. It is still sufficient in size for a boost-aged child. I fit in it (barely). Plenty of padding for a little baby. I would feel safe putting an infant in either.
Graco material seems more water-resistant and the foam feels denser like a memory foam.
Both adjust easily in regard to recline and headrest positions and strap tension. Both have the easy release button.
The Graco is much heavier than the Safety First.
Others have mentioned the latch system to be different. (Graco being easier). I have not installed them in the vehicle yet and cannot attest to that.
I hope this helps! This is the review I was looking for when trying to make a decision. In the end, we'll be keeping the 4 ever and either returning the Safety First or keeping it for our second vehicle.
Photos: upright & highest setting, upright & lowest setting, all the way reclined in lowest setting, and side view to show amount of lift required on solid ground in order to achieve proper line/bubble placement when fully reclined.
UPDATE: we still love our Graco 4ever. We recently needed a second seat and didn't want to spend as much. After looking around, we decided to buy the MySize65. We actually find the MySize65 to be superior in a few ways:
- the head cushion is a better design. I removed the one for the 4ever because the stem wasn't long enough the stay in and it seemed like the cushion behind her head ended up pushing her head forward. The MySize65 slides in behind a sleeve of fabric so it can adjust up and down, but doesn't fall out every time we put her in. The MySize doesn't have all the extra padding directly behind the head which was pushing her head forward in the 4ever.
- the MySize65 shoulder pad straps extend down underneath the chest buckle for comfort (& to remind dad how high the chest buckle needs to be).
- The MySize65 doesn't have as many recline options, but appears to have the same range - just not as many in-between options. I can't see that to be a problem.
- the cupholder is within reach for the child on the MySize, but is just out of reach for the 1 yr old in the 4ever. Downside: only 1 cupholder with the MySize and it is not removable.
Overall, if purchasing again, I think we would go with the MySize. I haven't removed either for washing, but it looks like the MySize65 will be slightly easier. Also, our 1 yr old cannot reach the cupholder on the 4ever and she can with the MySize65.

Los cinturones se enredan muy fácil y es un poco tardado, comparado con un portabebé, el asegurarlos.
