Maxi-Cosi Mico Infant Car Seat Review

As I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of our 4th child, I have enjoyed researching car seats and other baby products to be prepared! I have loved the opportunity to check out the Mico Infant Car Seat.

The Mico seat is very sleek and stylish looking and I appreciate the solid colors without a busy patterned cover that is accentuated with a contrasting or coordinating colored inserts for newborns. This car seat is very light weight which makes it much easier to carry your infant.

The light weight of this seat doesn’t make it appear any less sturdy or flimsy though and in fact it feels to be a very strong and well made seat. The base was very simple to install and latching the car seat in and out of my car with the base installed was just as easy too.

I love that the harnesses can be adjusted right from the front of the seat to loosen or tighten the straps. This makes it SO much easier to adjust the straps as your child grows and also for ease of getting your child in and out of the seat with still keeping the buckles appropriately tight for travel.

Maxi-Cosi Mico Review

I was amazed at how simple the Mico attaches to a Quinny Moodd stroller. I have never owned a traditional travel system before as I absolutely hate the bulk of traditional travel systems. They are generally so heavy, wide, long, and just not practical at all!

Making a modern travel system using the Mico and the Moodd Stroller together makes a very slim and lightweight system that is a dream to use! The Quinny Moodd stroller even comes with the adapters included to attach the Mico infant car seat so no additional accessories are needed to get your travel system going.

Be sure to check out my review of Quinny Moodd stroller as well for my full impressions on the stroller.

Disclosure: I received a Maxi-Cosi Mico Infant Car Seat in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated in any other manner. The opinions expressed above are my own and any claims should be verified on the sponsor’s site.

transferring from your car to either a Quinny® or Maxi-Cosi® stroller is a breeze.
