We’ve been using Maxi-Cosi carseats since Nora was still in my womb. So over three years! We’ve always loved how soft, supportive, safe and lightweight their products are, as well as their clean and simple designs. We recently upgraded both our girls to the Maxi-Cosi Magellan 5-in-1 convertible carseats and we have all been so pleased with them!
Here are some specs straight from the Maxi-Cosi site description just so I make sure it’s all here -
Designed to grow with your child and provides a perfect fit from birth to 10 years (5-120 lbs.)
Adjustable side impact protection, grows with your child.
Patented Air Protect side impact offers superior protection from birth to 10 years, that's soft and comfortable.
Adjustable torso side impact protection with 14-position headrest adjustment creates a customized fit for all growth stages; rear-facing, forward-facing, and even a belt-positioning booster.
14-position headrest adjustments, featuring Air Protect Superior Side Impact Protection at every stage from birth to 10 years
Integrated belt lock-offs designed for easy and secure installation; One-click LATCH connectors install and release easily for an alternative installation.
7-positions to choose from; HideAway harness allows seat to easily transform to booster car seat mode.
The premium, machine washable fabrics and padding provide the most comfort for your child during the ride.
After having been using these seats for a few months now, I can genuinely say we really appreciate all these different aspects! We never have to worry about the girls when they fall asleep like we used to. Their heads don’t fall forward with all the cushion, head side impact and and torso impact; they’re not only safe but they’re both so comfortable. We’ve taken the covers off to wash them in the machine several times, and they look brand new each time! They’re easy to take on and off and don’t take to any staining at all in our experience (sadly snacks in the car are still a thing… because we live in the woods and long car rides and sanity, ya know?)
We also greatly appreciate that the Magellan 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seats are created and intended for all stages of childhood. I would absolutely feel comfortable putting a tiny newborn in one of these seats, and already know that Nora will be happy to stay in hers well-through booster seat years. She genuinely loves her seat, the cupholders, and is even learning how to properly buckle herself.
Anytime we take the carseats out of the car to wash, or to clean the car, Mabel immediately wants to jump in! She feels so comfy in her seat. She doesn't scream and fight us like she once did… and seems to really enjoy when she’s sitting the car these days.
I would absolutely (and DO!) recommend these carseats to anyone in the market. We had the Maxi-Cosi Mico Max 30 for both girls when they were little babies, and love that we’ve been able to upgrade to these amazing seats for the car. We’re very grateful and extremely happy with them!
