Maxi-Cosi Mico AP infant car seat review {Giveaway}

In Baby, Giveaways by Esther Carlstone261 Comments


In the world of infant car seats safety is king and design is gold, but if the true test of a superior infant car seat is how long your baby will sleep in it, the Maxi-Cosi Mico AP infant car seat wins hands down. I’ve been fortunate enough to try out both the Mico AP and another high-end infant car seat for my now 4-month-old. And while both have their pros and cons, the Mico AP is definitely the one she prefers… and really, isn’t that all that matters?

Lightest in its class

Touted as the “lightest infant car seat in its class”, the Mico AP is indeed incredibly light at a mere 8.6 pounds. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to lift it with the baby inside — especially after having lugged a much heavier version with her older sister. It comes in 14 stylish color choices that any savvy sassy mom would love and works with the car seat adapter for our Uppa Baby Vista which has been super convenient.

Safety features

It also features the advanced Air Protect® Side Impact Technology which, to me, looks incredibly secure. Baby must feel super cozy in the appropriately named Cozi Dozi infant insert as she almost always instantly falls asleep in it… and stays asleep! Beyond all this, the fabric just looks so cushy and comfy even I’d love to doze in it. It’s super easy to clip in and out of the car seat base, and lifting it out of the car is a breeze. While I wish the sun canopy was a bit larger, it’s still significantly larger than the first infant car seat we owned.
