With the MESA MAX Infant Car Seat and Base, UPPAbaby is ensuring a cozy and comfortable ride for your little one while also providing you the peace of mind that they're riding in a seat that's taken safety to the max! The MESA MAX's base has two NEW features: a load leg and an anti-rebound+ panel to add even more security if a collision occurs.

Along with an even larger canopy and headrest, the seat provides additional protection from the elements as well as side-impact protection. Installation is a breeze with its SmartSecure® system and an auto-retracting LATCH design, with a European belt route option as well, giving you plenty of easy options. Factor in the quality fabrics you've come to love from UPPAbaby as well as simple compatibility with their line of strollers, and you've got a safe, stylish, and high-quality infant car seat that's a win for you and your baby!

CPS Techs

What is a CPS tech?

A CPS tech is a Certified Passenger Safety Technician. Our Cubby Moms who have certified as CPS techs are specially trained on how to properly install car seats and booster seats, ensuring they know everything there is to know about keeping children safe in vehicles.
Through required continuing education courses and hours of personal research and team training, our CPS techs are able to remain up to date on the latest technical information regarding child safety.
Question mark icon

How does a CPS tech get certified?

In order to become certified, each prospective tech must attend The National Child Passenger Safety Certification Training Program. After intensive classroom instruction, they must pass a variety of written tests, demonstrate their knowledge through hands-on skills assessments, and perform safety checks at a check-up event before becoming certified. They learn the ins and outs of car seat installation possibilities, installing car seats in different vehicles, harnessing methods, and more. The car seat and safety industry is constantly changing, so our CPS techs here at The Baby Cubby are an invaluable resource for parents purchasing a new car seat, or for ones who simply want someone to double check that their current car seat is properly installed.

Amazing Experience Buying a Carseat

Baby Cubby was AMAZING. I wanted a very specific car seat in a specific color. I called to see if they had it, and they did and set it aside for me. When I arrived, I had the car seat purchased in a matter of minutes and they carried it out to my car for me. All the employees were friendly and kind, including over the phone. The car seat is perfect and I’m excited for my baby to use it when he arrives in 6 weeks!



This review means so much to us! Thank you for your kind words, we are so glad you had a great experience!
