Maxi Cosi Mico AP car seat review

We bought this car seat when we were expecting our second. At the time we had one vehicle. A 2014 KIA Sorento. 5 seater. Great car but NOT when you have small children.

The car seat will not fit in it properly. Our oldest was in a booster seat and I cannot even imagine it fitting with all 3 car seats right now. The car seat would fit on the passenger side but only when that seat would be all the way forward, so no way could my husband or I sit there. In the middle, half the car seat would end up in the front, but when you only have one car that would be the spot.

Going back to the Mico. I Love the car seat, it is light and that is a BIG plus when the babies get bigger/heavier. It is easy to clean, and I love that it comes with an insert for the head especially those first couple of months. The straps are fairly easy to take apart, I wouldn’t feel safe if this part was too easy.

The down side is the material, like most car seats I assume, doesn’t vent to well, so down here in GA they always come out sweaty. The newer ones, I have been told, have this less.

It does not come with an easy grip bar, so putting it on your arm hurts. But you can buy a cushion for it to solve that. TJ Maxx has them occasionally and I know Target has them.

Pros:

  • Seat itself is light weight
  • A baby as light as 5lbs can go in the seat
  • mechanisms stay good (handle bar, car seat adaptor, car base)
  • easy to clean
  • easy to use
  • supports the baby
  • LATCH system

Cons:

  • Material makes kids sweaty
  • arm bar has no grip, painful on the arm
  • Doesn’t fit every car

Overall I love our car seat. If you are looking at a car seat I would recommend this one. BUT please make sure when you are looking for a car seat to test some out. By that I mean go to the stores and touch and feel them. Look up reviews online, ask questions and do not go for just the looks. As we all know, looks can be deceiving.

Do your research, these are just our opinions. As always feel free to ask any questions you might have!
