Maxi Cosi Mico Review – The easiest to install?

If a 6-month pregnant mother can install it…

This is a major issue with most car seats. You need a Ph.D. diploma to get it installed, and there are no guarantees. No wonder that 75% of all car seats are installed faulty.

This is where Maxi-Cosi comes into play. It has an easy latch system. Once you hear the double click, you’re set. You will be already in the top 25%


Everybody wants their little one to be safe. So getting the right car seat is paramount. Now you have probably seen the picture. This car seat is for infants and babies. So it’s rear-facing mode only.

The beauty of Maxi-Cosi it’s that they make strollers. So if you want the perfect travel system, you can do it. You get the car seat out of the car and mount it on the stroller, and you’re done.

It’s that simple.

Before we get any further, let me give you a quick preview. This car seat is for infants and toddlers. You can use it from 5 pounds up to 30 pounds. This car seat is compatible with Maxi-Cosi strollers and other brands as well.

The fabrics are easy to remove and clean. Better yet, they are self-wicking by deodorization and drawing moisture away from your child.

Let’s get this Maxi-Cosi Mico review started. If you stick with me until the end, I will tell you the pros/cons. Some of them are unexpected, to say the least.


Who is the Maxi Cosi Mico 30 Infant Car Seat?

This Maxi-Cosi 30 is for those parents who want to pair the car seat function with a stroller. It’s compatible with most strollers, not just Maxi-Cosi.

It provides safety and comfort from infancy to early toddler age.

What can the Maxi-Cosi Mico car seat do for you?

As I mentioned above, it’s super easy to install. A 6-month pregnant mother did it with ease, so it shouldn’t be a problem for the rest of us.

It has excellent safety protection. It comes with ARB so you can rest assured that your baby is safe and sound.

This car seat is part of a travel system. It can be mounted on a stroller and in the car as well. This is the main selling point. Now the issue with it is that once that baby has outgrown it, you have to get another car seat. Besides that, you will need another stroller as well.

The Maxi-Cosi Mico is super comfy, and I love the material. The thing is that most materials are scratchy, and I wouldn’t want my newborn surrounded by that. This the Maxi-Cosi. It’s different. It’s much more soft and cushy.

Maxi-Cosi, it’s a well-known brand and an excellent record. The materials are removable and easy to wash. This is a good selling point if you have a messy baby.


Maxi Cosi Mico shortcomings

Sadly the perfect product hasn’t been invented yet. No matter what brand you choose, to let it be cheap or expensive, they will have flaws. I feel that this is my civic duty to tell you because knowing them, you will get the full picture. Plus, there will be no surprises down the road.

The biggest issue with the Mico was the canopy. It doesn’t want to stay in place. It was constantly falling back.

There were problems with the heat. I mean, my little one is hot, just like his father. No matter what the ad says, she was sweating, and it wasn’t that hot outside, and the AC was on.

This car seat isn’t cheap, and it only allows rear-facing mode. To make things worse, it doesn’t support extended rear-facing. Once the baby outgrows it, the seat is done.

It’s quite high priced, and it still gives a cheap feeling.

Last but not least, it doesn’t have level markers. It’s a guessing game if the seat is leveled.

I know this seems like a lot, but I like to do a thorough job. This means that I look into every nook and cranny. Since you’re still with me, let’s continue.


How To Get The Most Out Of Maxi Cosi Mico 30 Infant Car Seat?

The biggest issue with car seats is the bad install. If it’s not done right, then injuries will occur. Don’t forget, if you have doubts, do ask the opinion of a licensed professional.

Maxi-Cosi has outdone itself with this car seat. First of all, there’s no guessing game second you can’t do it wrong. All you have to do is latch on, and you’re done. Once you hear the click sound, you’re all set.

The second important thing to know about car seats is this. The positioning matters a lot. The safest spot is in the middle of the car. Now I know that’s not doable for everybody, so here’s the second safest place, which is the driver’s side.

Many parents opt for the extended rear-facing position. Sadly that’s not possible with this car seat. If your child reaches 30 pounds or 32,” you will have to get another seat. It’s for infants and small toddlers. Keep this is mind rear-facing is the safest mode possible. No wonder certain countries mandate it by law to drive your kids like that until the age of four.

Conclusion for the Maxi Cosi Mico Review

As you have seen, Maxi-Cosi has several strengths and weaknesses. The biggest issue is that if you have a fast-growing baby, the car seat will be outgrown fast. On the other hand, you will be able to pair it with a stroller so you will have a complete travel system.

We have reached the end of the Maxi-Cosi Mico Review. I hope I have managed to fill in the gaps. If it’s the right fit for you, get it while supplies still last.
