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.

  • 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

  • Lightweight and cute BUT: very narrow space for baby; Fabric is hot during the summer. Very hard to put on and off the stroller. Harness gets twisted all the time. Toys hung on handle hits baby's face Jan 02, 2019

    Didn't love this. My son grew out of it quickly and never really seemed comfortable in it. Seemed pretty heavy to me. Dec 11, 2018

  • While I loved the lightness of this carseat and the look as well, my canopy broke three times! So frustrating! Nov 22, 2018

  • Just bought it there lovely Oct 02, 2018

  • This was terrible, super uncomfortable for my baby, he cried all the time and outgrew it after 4 months. Sep 30, 2018

  • It works fine, it’s a little snug Sep 23, 2018

  • Heavy and bulky. Like the added bumper for head and for bottom if needed for a smaller baby. Seat seemed very tight for us, we upgraded to a new seat at 4 months because of size. Sep 11, 2018

  • The car seat goes easily into a stroller if need be it can attach. It’s easy and lightweight. I would say for car seats it does it’s job, but nothing stands out. Aug 16, 2018

  • The best! Love it! Aug 06, 2018

  • Love it. Baby is safe and comfortable Aug 04, 2018

    This is a bit bulkier than other car seats and some covers don't fit over it. But, if you do a lot of traveling this has plenty of padding to keep baby comfy! Jun 28, 2018

  • We chose it because it looks much classier than the average seat. The material is super soft and the handle is nice and big for easy carrying. I wish that the canopy provided more coverage. Jun 26, 2018

    Its so light I have the red rumor and I love the color bought this with the maxi taxi just awaiting my baby boy. Jun 24, 2018

  • I have a special edition color and get complements everywhere we go. Not only is it stylish, but my infant seems to be very comfortable in it and it is very lightweight and easy to carry. Jun 04, 2018

  • Very lightweight and easy to use. Mom's of big babies should be aware - my son outgrew at 6 months. May 07, 2018

  • Beautiful, lightweight, safe, wish my little guy wasn’t outgrowing it so fast. Apr 25, 2018
