Beautiful blue convertible car seat!
March 10, 2017
As a first time mom, I had spent months reviewing ratings and prices for a convertible car seat. I liked the Maxi Cosi because I have read other reviews mentioning it was good for little ones that get hot easily. The fabric on this one is indeed the softer t-shirt like fabric that is super soft and breathable. It also fit well in my Mazda CX-7, although I would completely suggest setting the anchor strap up correctly inside your house or outside before trying to mess with it inside the car. Once I got the latch connected, I followed a video I found on youtube that suggested leaning on the head part of the seat when tightening it down. This worked like a charm and my car seat is really secured and locked in place.My 5-month-old has been using the seat for the past week and a half, and seems to be very comfortable in it. The shoulder rests are a very plush and help balance his head up when he falls asleep when we go for longer doctor appts. The strap near his feet that you pull to tighten the shoulder straps is sometimes very difficult, but I'm hoping this is just because he's on the smaller side of the limits of who should be in the seat or it's because the straps are still new. I have to really work to tighten everything to make sure he's safe in the seat currently. Good for building arm muscles, though! Overall, I'd still rate this with 5 stars because I love the safety, styling, and comfort of the seat and think it was the best choice for us that will last us a long time.
