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.

  • 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

  • Had two of these and loved them. Very comfortable and safe for the LO. I now have the bigger car seat and my 2 year old looks very comfy and safe in it. Jul 10, 2019

    So pretty but huge. It’s not too heavy, but I’m finding it big to carry around. Jul 07, 2019

  • I love the ease of adjusting straps and putting any size baby in it. I love how it clicks into my uppa baby with correct attachments. Used with 2 children so far and has much more use to go. Jun 28, 2019

  • It’s comes with an infant insert that’s important when they are so little. Love the cushion support, easy to remove car seat from vehicle. Jun 25, 2019

  • I absolutely love this car seat!! I got this car seat for my 4th baby because it looked super comfortable and I really liked that it has the head caution for baby with flat head syndrome prevention. May 19, 2019

    I love this car seat. It is super light weight and simple. Not messy trying to figure out! Also easy to wash when puke happens! Apr 28, 2019

  • I’ve purchased 2 maxi cosi seats, this one + a convertible, and both of them are so hard to tighten the straps. You have to pull super hard and then it tightens all at once. Always makes my baby cry. Mar 17, 2019

  • Pros- machine washable and very lightweight and comfortable. Cons- the canopy sucks; it’s never taught and the base is awful to install because there is no level. Mar 08, 2019

  • I love this car seat because it’s siper sleek and pretty light. I’d been looking at car seats for about a month, and my husband and I decided to give the Mico a chance. So far, we don’t regret it! Mar 05, 2019

    My baby loves it.. Looks and feels confortable Feb 27, 2019

  • Loved the size of the car seat. Our LO was almost a preemie and the Mico infant had a better range of weight limits that allowed us to safely take home our LO from the hospital. Feb 19, 2019

  • I am using this car seat right now for my baby girl, Maxi Cosi has always been #1 and Top #3 on my list for is safety and comfort. I also love how it is universal to most strollers! Feb 13, 2019

  • I love my seat! I have it in the violet and get compliments on the color! It is also lightweight. However it is pretty large and takes up a lot of space in the car Jan 18, 2019

  • I used the Mico Max with the Lila stroller. Pros: Easy to install I loved the base with the load leg Easy to get clicked into the stroller The material quality was excellent. Jan 11, 2019
