Maxi-Cosi Mico Max 30 Review
The Maxi-Cosi travel system is a versatile combination of stroller and infant car seat designed to meet the needs of parents on-the-go. It provides all the convenience of a stroller, plus the versatility of an infant car seat that can be transferred from car to stroller and back again.
The Mico Max 30 infant car seat is one of the top choices for traveling, as it’s compatible with most strollers in Maxi-Cosi’s lineup. Plus, it boasts a range of safety features to keep your little one secure – like big inflated side impact protection and EPP energy-absorbing foam.
It has been cleared by the FAA for use on airplanes, so you can take it on vacation with your child. Plus, you can purchase a base to install the Mico Max 30 on your car’s rear seat – an excellent way to make traveling with your infant more secure and convenient.
Furthermore, the Mico Max 30 features a large canopy with peekaboo window so you can keep an eye on your baby. Plus, its sun visor is removable for ventilation and UV protection.
Unfortunately, this travel system does have some shortcomings. It lacks a reclining seat or child tray which could prove frustrating for busy parents who need something that will last them beyond just the first few weeks. Furthermore, its lightweight nature may pose issues to some if they’re looking for something that will provide value over time rather than just for convenience.
Some parents reported that the seat is too narrow for their babies to fit properly into it. This could pose a safety hazard, and the car seat doesn’t have a level indicator to help you find the correct angle for your child.
Folding this stroller may prove challenging, as you need two hands to do so. Some users reported that the wheels were fragile and the handle difficult to adjust.
Some users had difficulty attaching their car seats to strollers due to infants’ heads slumping too much when trying to secure them, potentially endangering their health and well-being.
The harness on the Zelia 5-in-1 Modular Travel System was not adjustable, which can be an issue if you’re nursing and need ease when getting your baby in and out of the car seat. Furthermore, lack of rethread function makes threading your infant into place tedious if that’s something that bugs you.
Another drawback of this travel system is the absence of a storage basket or diaper bag holder. This could prove problematic for parents who want their child’s snacks, drinks and toys in the designated basket.
