Very inconvenient seat
February 28, 2013
I bought this seat in the excitement of my pregnancy. I thought my first little girl should have an awesome pink seat for trips in the car. Mind you, my two boys always rode in Britax seats, and I had no problems with them, but this maxi cosi was more expensive so I thought it would be better. Nope.
This seat is terrible. It's been awful from day one. She hates it. The strap holders are so stiff that they almost choke her, the design is extremely uncomfortable, she cries every time she has to go in it. It's like a baby torture chamber. I took it apart to clean it and that process was miserable as well. It's just a poorly thought out seat. And I'd say it's not any safer than the Britax or most other brands. It has some foam at the head rest and boasts about "air protection", but really....it's just foam people.
The seat won't clip on to a grocery cart, and only fits in the Quinny stroller's (with an adapter). I wanted to love it, but this is by far my worst baby purchase ever. This is about to go on craigslist, because I just don't want to deal with it anymore. I'm going back to Britax.
Cons:Hurts baby's neck. (straps)
Hard to take apart to clean.
Doesn't clip on shopping cart.
Only works with Quinny strollers.
The directions are useless.
The base doesn't stay firm in the car.
Too pricey for what you actually get.
