Maxi-Cosi Mico Infant Car Seat - Choco Mint

Posted

I know it sounds silly but I was drawn to this seat because of the color options. I was so sick of all the neutral boring car seats. I opted for the bright pinkish one and although I had a boy( it was a surprise) I still love it. It was easy to install in our Subaru Outback and very easy to eject out of the base although I rarely took the car seat out of the car. I prefer to hold baby or put them in a sling than keep them in the seat. Touch is the best thing for early brain development.  I especially like that you can use it without the base which makes it great for travel. We just threw it in a duffel and checked it. Although I don't have anything to compare it to I feel it's fairly light and easy to carry but again I didn't do it too often. Lastly, the fabric is so soft and cushiony unlike many other car seat fabrics that I compared. And you can pull it off and wash it. I loved it so much that I purchased the convertible seat by the same maker.

Pros: safety, ease of use, baby loves it

Cons: heavy, big, needs special adapter for strollers

My husband is from Europe and this car seat is very popular there. It was recommended to us by my SIL. We're happy with it, and DD loves to sit in it! She usually falls asleep while driving. The base is pretty easy to install, and the seat snaps so easily into it. However, you have to push the knob in an extra time to really make sure it has latched. The carrier is very sturdy and feels safe.

With DD inside, the car seat feels rather heavy and is not easy to carry. I'm not sure if this is true with other carriers. It is pretty big lengthwise, and in sedan cars the passenger in front has to sit all the way forward and straight up. We use it in our van most of the time with no problem. We bought a BabyJogger stroller, and in order to use this carrier with the stroller we would have had to buy an expensive adapter. We opted for the bassinet instead.

Overall, a satisfied customer. We bought it online and paid MUCH less than retail.
