We all pack hospital bags when we’re preparing to bring baby home - onesies, blankets, pacifiers, mittens, etc. - but that’s all optional because hospitals provide all those things for us. The one thing, the only thing, required to leave the hospital with your baby is a car seat.
Choosing a car seat is a daunting task, whether you’re a first-time parent or a seasoned pro. You want the best seat on the market as far as safety and testing, but for most of us, style and price are also factors.
Max Safety, Max Comfort
Maxi-Cosi came out with the Mico Max 30, a new, updated car seat similar to the Mico AP. Some of the improvements include an anti-rebound bar on the base for added safety during accidents or hard brakes, an infant insert for babies as small as 4 pounds (preemie friendly!), and a higher weight capacity (up to 30 pounds). The seat itself weighs 9.15 pounds - lightweight but sturdy - and is designed to be safer than other car seats, even without the base thanks to the Euro Belt Route. It also comes with Air Protect Side Impact Protection, which provides special side padding for extra safety and cush. The price point isn’t the lowest, but because you can use the Mico Max 30 from the newborn stage until your child is 30 pounds, you can go straight to a toddler-size car seat instead of buying another in-between car seat, ultimately saving you money.
In addition to the Side Impact cushion, the car seat cover comes in a self-wicking fabric that helps to keep baby dry and cool in hot weather and cozy and warm in cool weather. The cover is super-easily removed - no rethreading of harnesses necessary - and washer/dryer safe! For smaller babies, a reversible Cozi-Dozy insert provides extra head and neck support. Plus, the shade canopy keeps baby comfortably sheltered on your outings. No matter your baby’s age, the Mico Max 30 is a comfortable ride!
The Mico Max 30 is available in Devoted Black and Red Rumor through The Baby Cubby or we can special order most any color that you would like just for you!
As if you need more reasons to love the Mico Max 30, it can fit a variety of strollers - not just Maxi-Cosi. With adapters, the Mico Max 30 can stroll with Baby Jogger, Bugaboo, Bumbleride, Countours, Jané, iCandy, Mamas & Papas, Micralite, Mountain Buggy, Phil & Teds, Quinny, Stokke, UPPAbaby, and Valco Baby.
