Maxi Cosi makes pretty car seats… in the words of weeSpring parents, they’re sleek and stylish, and definitely the ones you’ll gravitate toward in the store if you’re trying to avoid baby-stuff-overload. Downside: we’ve heard installation can be more than tricky… the base won’t install securely in the majority of cars. With a 5 pound start and 22 pound limit, it also doesn’t fit preemies or older infants. Our friends at The Car Seat Lady suggest the Cybex Aton 2 as an alternative.

REGRET: 24 WANT: 70
  • Loved my maxi cosi infant! It wasn’t the lightest but easy to clean and felt heavy duty. Jun 03, 2021

  • This car seat is great in a way with material and babies who are slightly on the smaller side. My little guy is growing out of it fast, it has a narrow top half of the car seat. His shoulders are snug May 10, 2021

  • It is very light weight. I personally don't like the shape of the handle. It makes it hard to carry. And the handle also creaks. I do love the material of the seat fabric. Apr 20, 2021

  • I used this car seat with 2 babies. They each used it for 18 months until they were ready to upgrade to a bugger one. It is very sturdy. The only issue is the straps need adjusting every now and them Mar 31, 2021

  • Lightweight but still very safe and supportive. Love that it came in tan to match my car interior. Easy to clean. Mar 09, 2021

  • Lightweight, to not add extra weight when carrying. The material inside is so cushy and soft. Additional infant padding feels almost like a memory foam. My 3 month old definitely loves this seat. Mar 03, 2021

  • Did not love this car seat when my daughter was an infant. She always screamed in the car (which may or may not have been due to the seat), and eventually the canopy broke off/couldn't be replaced. Dec 22, 2020

  • Eh, it's ok. It fits up to a bigger size than most, but it also takes up a lot of space in the car and the handle feels pretty flimsy to us. Not my favorite, but not terrible either. Aug 26, 2020

  • Hated it! It actually got stuck and I couldn’t drive home as the adapters were stuck in the car seat Aug 14, 2020

  • We had the infant car seat when we had our daughter 6 years ago and loved it. Jul 31, 2020

  • This was given to me as a gift for my daughter. I loved it. Super light weight and easy to take down form car. Jul 30, 2020

  • I Absolutely Love this infant car seat. It’s easy to clean and very compact and light. Not to mention it has very high safety ratings. The straps are easy to adjust and the base was simple to install Jun 23, 2020

  • We love the material and that this seat is light weight! Would buy again!! Jun 13, 2020

    Our baby seems to prefer this car seat over our other infant one. It feels really comfortable and lightweight. I wish the canopy stayed attached but it just won’t hold. We love it otherwise. Apr 26, 2020

  • We have a Mico Max,it's plush & the fabric is nice,seems a bit narrow inside & I have small babies. Constantly have to fix the canopy,easy to install. Purchased different strap covers, these are stiff Apr 06, 2020

  • This was the winner for us. Lightweight, safe, very well made, and stylish. We love this brand and think it’s far superior to the common ones here in the US. Apr 01, 2020

  • Lightweight, stylish and safe. Love these! Feb 20, 2020

  • I used this for both my kids and loved it! Soft and comfortable for a new born, great in the car and easy to use. Feb 01, 2020

  • This car seat is lightweight, easy to use, and looks so sleek in the all black color scheme. Jan 23, 2020

  • This car seat lays the baby in an uncomfortable upright position, smaller than most infant car seats, & extremely heavy to carry when baby is sitting in it. The only pro: extended canopy & softness. Jan 14, 2020

  • Good car seat. But the material is not good. I had to buy insert because summer time it was even to pleasant to touch this i guess synthetic. I don’t recommend this car seat Dec 24, 2019

  • The materials are not breathable. The seat is too tight and small. My baby outgrew it at 2 months. For the price point, I wouldn't recommend this product. Nov 07, 2019

  • Love how light it is! Much lighter than any other model I looked at. Liner is easy to wash. Canopy is easy to adjust, even on an angle. Easy to place in base, or use with a seatbelt. Oct 24, 2019

  • I do love this infant car seat. I like that they have several different colors available. My baby fits comfortably. The only thing a do not like is that the fabric pelts almost immediately. Sep 16, 2019

    Decent carseat that gets the job done. The shade that comes with is not very sturdy and always falls behind the carseat. Easy to install and use without a base if necessary. Sep 16, 2019

  • So lightweight! Sep 11, 2019

  • I will never buy another infant seat. I highly recommend this lighter, fashionable, and safe car seat to everyone who asks about an infant carrier. Sep 04, 2019

  • We don’t love this car seat. Our babies seem to be too chunky for this & thus uncomfortable. It’s like they are wedged in there, even as newborns. It is very pretty, safe & fairly lightweight. Aug 22, 2019

  • It’s okay. Not as soft as the convertible seats. The carrying handle isn’t comfortable at all. It was more of a hassle than anything. Aug 04, 2019

  • This came with the travel system. Love the stroller but hate the car seat. Car seat is light(only plus) but the straps are hard to pull, canopy is flimsy, and overall seems cheap. Aug 01, 2019

  • Had these with twins. There was a time a carried both car seats with children in them. Light weight and really good quality! Jul 25, 2019
