The Maxi Cosi Citi is a sturdy, well designed car seat. It comes with a head hugger and back support to make newborns feel snug and secure. This is easily removable for older children. The safety harness is an easy to use 3 point harness with a one touch release button and padded shoulder straps. The handle of this car seat has 3 different positions which mean you can secure the seat in a sitting position as well as the carry position and the rocking/sleeping position. This is better than the other 0-12month car seats which on the whole don't have the sitting position and the handle doesn't seem to lock into position on other car seats I've tried. The seat itself is roomy and there is a vast range of colourways. The covers are all removable for washing which is very useful. Fitting the car seat into a car couldn't be easier. It's definately idiot proof and even has a diagram on the side of the seat should you forget how to fit it. There is a sun canopy supplied, which looks great on the picture above. It does work but I still haven't got the kink out of mine. Whenever you fold it up again the kink comes back. The maxi cosi citi is easy to carry and doesn't cut into your arm when you are lugging round a heavier baby. There are many accessories available for the maxi cosi citi. A chassis can be purchased so that you can quickly attach your car seat. The car seat has quick release clips built into it for use with the chassis. Raincovers and matching cosy toes are also available although I haven't purchase either. In the back of the car seat there is a small luggage space which has room for 2 nappies, wipes, keys, and your purse. This is very useful if you are going on a short trip and don't want to lug your change bag round too. The cost of this car seat is very reasonable considering the amount of use you can get out of it. H
aving looked at the competitors car seats I think I have purchased the best car seat and have got good value for money. I had trouble finding this car seat at first but after phoning their head office they helpfully suggested John Lewis, and larger Mothercare's and were generally very helpful.
The Maxi-Cosi has all the support a newborn baby needs but it's also roomy enough for 12 to 15-month-old toddlers. A padded head hugger is included to support a new baby's head and neck, as well as extra side padding, which can be removed as your baby grows. This car seat fits almost every type of car using a 3-point seat belt. The ergonomic carrying handle makes it easy to carry a sleeping baby into the house or car.
