Poor Quality for High Price
November 3, 2022
I wish I'd read the reviews on this site prior to purchasing this seat. I agree with a lot of the sentiments. It is very expensive and has not shown to be worth the money. It feels flimsy. The straps are impossible to get even and the entire seat has to be dissembled to adjust them. The shoulder pads are bulky and scratched my daughter's shoulders up pretty bad. My daughter is 4 months and a bigger baby at 18lbs, 27 inches and she is miserable in the seat. It seems to tight at her shoulders. I love the luxury look of the travel system (with the Tayla stroller), but I really wish I'd gone with my second option, the Nuna set. We have to figure out how to replace this seat.

Excellent for travel. This seat lacks bells and whistles that come with other comparable seats such as leveling gauge etc.. But it also does not have the weight that comes with it.

After a few months of use we are disappointed with this seat. The straps are frustrating and one is always looser than the other requiring a lot of extra adjusting each use (and it's potentially unsafe). The shoulder pads are poorly designed and way too big. The fabric frayed after just a couple uses and the sun shade is always loose and falling down the back of the seat. My baby seems (and looks) uncomfortable in it no matter how many times we try to readjust him. It is lightweight abs stylish looking, but not as well made as it should be for the price. Many better options for the money! Recommend shopping for a different brand car seat.

Great carseat but could have a few improvements!
February 15, 2021
I got this with our stroller when we got maxi cosi double stroller option. I had a graco carseat before. I feel like for the price of the system/ carseats they should have be able to adjust the straps without taking apart all of it. I also don't like how the straps always seem to not be even when trying to adjust it. The pads by the neck are way to big, my baby was on the smaller side I felt like I couldnt get the straps tight enough with those on so I took them off. Baby seems comfy in it and it's really easy to wash! The canopy/ visor is great! Easy to latch in and the base is very easy to install! Gave it a 3/5 due to the strap issues and too big of neck strap pieces. I feel like thats one of the most important parts of the carseat. Honestly if I didn't need the double stroller system I would of returned the carseat and probably gone with chicco or britax infant seat.

So glad we got this car seat!
January 24, 2021
I was on the hunt for a gender neutral car seat that was machine wash/dry, lightweight, and not ugly or hundreds of dollars. So glad we went with this one. The cover is intuitive to take on and off (A rarity it seems in the car seat world...) and washes/dries very nicely. I love the leather handle (not so slippery) and the fabric and padding are so nice. They advertise the wicking fabric, but when it comes there is literally a 6 inch polyester warning label that takes up one whole side. I get the need for safety, but its written in five other places. I took a seam ripper to the label and got it off easily so our baby could actually use the wicking fabric. It installs easily in cars with the seat belt or with a base. We love Maxi-Cosi and got a convertible car seat from them that we enjoy just as much. This is our first foray into the car seat world but I think we are Maxi-Cosi loyalists for life.

Too narrow
October 27, 2020
Wanted to love this carseat as I had done extensive research on car seats that were safe but not too heavy. This car seat is extremely light and easy to carry but its so narrow inside. My husband and I have a hard time getting baby buckled in without her getting annoyed because she has to be readjusted

We have been using this seat for almost 9 months & are now transitioning to a convertible seat, so I feel "experienced" enough to leave a review. This is a very nice seat. It is comfortable & my baby has never once had the awful 'slumped' neck sleep position. Perfect recline. The base is HUGE. The safety bar sticks out so far it almost makes sitting in the front seat impossible. This is the biggest flaw, in my opinion. The straps become uneven after a few trips for whatever reason. The straps also get twisted around easily. The cover is easy to remove/wash. The fabric is breathable, even throughout this hot summer in the south, my baby was never overly sweaty.

Overall, it takes up a lot of backseat space, but has a perfect recline & allows baby to be comfortable.

Want to love this carseat, but just can't.
September 28, 2020
I want to love this carseat, but it has been nothing but a pain since leaving the hospital. As my daughter continues to grow, the straps seem to cause more and more problems. After each use I have to adjust the straps and one side is always tighter. With this constant issue, my daughter cries as we're trying to adjust them. After just 2 months of use, the material frayed and has a hole on the canopy. Paying $600+ for the carseat and stroller set left me with better hope.

So infuriating! The straps on this car seat are so difficult to adjust. This afternoon one side of the harness was looser than the other... we had to spend 10 minutes trying to pull the harness out to equal lengths on both sides. Meanwhile we have a 6 month old that is hot and fussy. Thank goodness there were two of us to fix this frustrating flaw! I wouldn't wish this car seat on anyone. Getting ready to just buy an entirely different car seat for our baby.

Overall, love the quality and fabric. Although it does seem a little hot if you live anywhere remotely warm. Didn't really think that through even though it is listed as a sweater material. It is well made and baby seemed comfortable position wise. Maxi Cosi has always treated us well, even when we used the warranty they handled the problem with a quickness!

Color doesn't match the picture (not as vibrant)
May 27, 2020
First, let me tell you this is the third maxi cosi infant car seat I've bought within the past 5 years. I bought a pink Mico 5 years ago for my daughter, and then bought a Mico 30 for my niece 2 1/2 years ago. I do realize there are differences in fabric between the models, and years. So, the picture thou shows the color to be the same. The one I just purchase from buybuybaby Mico Max 30, came to be more purplelish in person, was expecting the same vibrant pink as pictured :( . Now, I still love the brand, lightest car seat of all, the fabric is so good for hot weather, easy to maneuver, it is not as bulky as others, I can fit a backless booster seat (graco) the Mico max 30 and a 3 in 1 car seat (graco) on the second row of my Traverse SUV, I just want people to know they will not get a vibrant pink. The picture is the same on all websites though.

Straps don't adjust to fit a small baby
May 25, 2020
We purchased this car seat for its safety features and easy installation percs however, when leaving the hospital we couldn't take our baby home in this because the straps would not adjust to safely transport him home. Our baby was not abnormally small. He was 5lbs 11oz at birth. For the price, I just can't recommend this product because you likely won't be able to use it for the first month of your child's life

Starter car seat
April 25, 2020
We bought this car seat for our preemie because it was able to hold a 4 lb baby. He’s now 18 lbs and this lasted us 4 months. This is a no thrill straight forward seat. We had no complaints only thing is every time he was in seat he screamed his head off, not sure if it’s correlating to seat being uncomfortable or just that he hated being in seat. We are now moving into a convertible seat so interested to see if there’s a change in his screaming.

Fits in 2015 Honda Fit!
April 6, 2020
I just wanted to say how happy I am that this car seat fits in my little 2015 Honda Fit! After reading the reviews, with users saying how they were having troubles getting it to fit into Jeeps and SUVs, I really started to question our choice of the Mico Max 30. It arrived today, and I got it installed without any troubles. Caveat being, I'm 5'2", and my husband is 6', so little one will be riding behind me. But that's really no big deal. Baby hasn't arrived yet, so I can only speak to installation at this point, but so far, I'm quite pleased. Super easy installation, and the seat pops onto and off of the base extremely easily.

Also, if it matters to you - this was one of the only car seats that I could slide my arm through the handle while the canopy was up - there's enough clearance between them that it's comfortable for me.

Got this for our first newborn. The material is easy to clean and very plush. I mainly bought it because of the material and that its super light weight. The only reason I didn't give a 5 start review is because the canopy part is very flimsy. It comes apart at the side but i can view past that.

Best Carseat on the market
March 2, 2020
Having a good sized light weight infant car seat was very important to me and this one is both. My son who was typically in the 60th-80th percentile up to 15 months of age fit in this carseat well and allowed for me to carry him because the seat itself was not too heavy. Worked great for me! I will be using it again for my second child as it will still be good by the time he is born.

Perfect car seat
February 27, 2020
We had previously bought a different car seat . Our daughter absolutely hated it . She cried and screamed every time she was in it . The canopy was flimsy ,overall bulky and not user friendly.
I researched for weeks trying to decide which car seat to get . We decided to go with the maxi cosi Mico max 30 .
We absolutely love it . The material is amazing. We live in the south so the moisture wicking material is a godsend! She loves it ! She falls asleep the minute we get in the car. It fits her so well . The installation was easy . All other car seats I’ve used don’t work well with the latch system. This is totally different. It clicks into your seat latch so well . It stays in place with very little movement. The car seat clicks right into the base and is easy to lift out .
We are very happy with our purchase and I highly recommend this to anyone .

Maxi Cosi Mico Max 30
February 18, 2020
I ordered this seat because it is one of the smallest on the market. Baby has not arrived yet, however i have had the chance to play around with the seat. When removing from the box I was shocked at how light it was, even with the base attached to it. The seat itself is well padded and seems like it will be cozy for the new babe. The placement of the buttons to adjust the handle are a little awkward and will take some getting used to. overall i am pleased with the seat so far, fingers crossed the new baby likes it.

  • well cushioned
  • comes with infant wedge
  • curved handle makes carrying less awkward

So so

This car seat not good not bad. Every feature functions normal but not good enough. The design is a bit complicated not user-friendly. The canopy is flimsy. Also the car seat is too heavy to carry. The seat looks uncomfortable as well. Baby grows very fast at first stage. But this car seat is pretty hard to adjust and baby sits not so comfortable when growing larger. Anyway, my baby is turning to 20 lb so I bought another Maxi Cosi Convertible car seat. Hope this time their seat will work better than this one.

The base is SO long
January 31, 2020
The base for this seat is so long it extends over the bench in my Jeep Grand Cherokee. If you put it behind the passenger seat the person riding in has to put the seat really far forward. If you put it behind the driver only I can drive, not my husband. It's been a big issue. The seat is nice but it's super annoying that the base is so long.

Maxi Cosi Red Orchid Car Seat
January 18, 2020
Awesome purchase! Beautiful car seat; vibrant colors, limited edition, picture does not do the car sear justice- much more impressive in person. It has unique detailed stripes to parts of the car seat like the strap covers and is a Rachel Zoe limited edition design from what I read. The price was unbeatable and the shipping highly expedited. Which I was truly fearful of having only 2 wks left for delivery and based on site reviews. Took a chance and glad I did. I will definitely be browsing Albeebaby for future purchases! Considering my purchase for another car seat was forceful, found mold build up on a previously purchased car seat stored after steamed, this shopping experience turned the unpleasantness around and reaffirmed my decision to purchase this particular seat.

Don't buy this carseat
January 15, 2020
I have a BMW X3 SUV and it's pretty spacious for a mid size vehicle. If this car seat is behind front passenger seat, no one can sit in my front passenger seat anymore. This car seat also sits way too upright for a newborn, it makes their head fall over resulting in obstruction of airway. Makes me a nervous wreck. I had to remove the base just to tilt it back enough to go on a solo ride with my newborn to the Dr.
