Let’s just say you wise up with your third child and finally recognize what’s important when it comes to transporting kids to and fro. Obviously safety is a huge factor, but other major factors? Light, compact and easy to clean. Did I say light? Because as much as you say you won’t haul that thing around … you will. Say it with me, “I will haul that thing around!”
I didn’t know such a carseat existed until we took a trip to Germany with my four month old. Did you know most people I came across used the term “Maxi-Cosi” interchangeably with “carseat”? Just like in Canada how we say “Kleenex” for tissue? Those Germans were onto something. So efficient. So practical. We borrowed a friend’s Maxi-Cosi during our holiday, and for the next four years, I envied their beautiful Maxi-Cosi. And cursed my bulky, impractical, first-time-mom carseat.
I will not make the same mistake with my third child. The Maxi-Cosi is the only car seat for me. We need to fit three car seats in a row (no mini van or SUV here) so size definitely matters. Travelling with a 4-year-old, 2-year-old and newborn will also have its herding challenges. Yes – herding. You should have seen as at the post office today. I was literally herding cats. Being able to juggle the wild ones and #allthestuff is crucial. I need to be nimble. Agile. Basically a mom ninja with a kid in a car seat, a child on my hip, and running after one more kiddo who darted off to who knows where.
Maxi-Cosi is also has car seats available and approved in Canada and we bought our bought our Maxi-Cosi Mico Max 30 from our local West Cost Kids where they are extremely helpful on educating how carseats differ and fit your lifestyle. At West Coast Kids, they even walk you to your car to help you test if a car seat will fit into your vehicle and also check if the seat is installed properly! Service at its best.
Top Reasons Why I love my Maxi-Cosi Mico
- Light –2 lbs (without base)! Totally haul worthy.
- Easy to clean – remove fabrics without rethreading harness. Just toss the cover in the washing machine.
- Slim, trim and safe – air protect side impact protection and narrow enough for my back row.
