Maxi Cosi Baby Car Seat
Advantages: Just perfect for your little one, very comfortable and practical.
I bought this car seat from Mothercare after I have been let down by Argos where from I bought a car seat on offer which was dreadful, hard to use and impractical.
I started to do my research one month before I was due to have my baby which was a little late but I found out I was pregnant just 2 month before I was due to give birth as my GB said I had a fibroid but that's another story! Anyway I was quite impressed with the Maxi Cosi range of car seat so I decided to go for it.
Suitable from birth to maximum 13kg (12-15 months). Height about 70 cm, width about 45 cm, depth about 55 cm, side impact protection, adjustable head rest, ergonomic handle, pushchair compatible for this you will need to buy two adaptors which are between £22 -£30 depend where you buy it from. The adaptors are not very strong, they're plastic, mine went broken from the first use and I had to have a new pairs which I got for free as I had a two yeas warranty on the adaptors as well.
You get a two years warranty.
Can be installed using the vehicle's seat belt or you can buy a Maxi-Cosi base, like Maxi Cosi FamilyFix base or Maxi Cosi EasyFix base.
Compatible with a wide range of pushchairs to form a travel system which is great.
I must say it is a very comfy chair and my son loves it, the fabric is so soft and very easy to clean if you spill something on it however is not machine washable but wet wipes will do miracles if you clean it right away. I did take it to the beach though one day and it ended up with a lot of sand al over and I found it a little difficult to clean it up soI had to put the vacuum on it, it would not clean with a brush so keep that in mind.
It comes in different colors, I bought the black color as I have a boy and also babies make a lot of mess so black was just perfect. You can choose to have any color you wish when you order if you buy from Mothercare.
It was on offer at the time I bought mine with £99 reduced from £129 I believe. I do believe you can a get a good price on it if you shop around, still you will not find it cheaper than £90 unless you buy a second which I don't recommend.
It is very easy to adjust and very practical but it does not have a lower back support so that's a bit tricky. It doesn't look very big you would not think a 1 year old child would fit in it but it definitely does, no problems at all. It's a high quality product, it's not cheap but it worth the money for sure. You have to be careful where you buying it from, Halfords will sell this chair at a double price and I myself I have seen some cheap imitations in the Sunday Market in Devon so I do advise to buy from well known companies/online retailers etc.
Summary: One of the best out there if not the best.
