I bought this for my daughter Poppy. She has hip dysplasia and I was recommended it for for use in the Spicas cast. It worked for that and is also very comfortable in it without too. I would say that a newborn maybe a little lost in side it as Poppy was 10months when I bought it. I found it easy to fit but had watched the fitting instructions on youtbe before reading the ones on the side. With those instructions and the video I don't think it could be fitted incorrectly. I have a ford focus so the seats are not bucketed or deep but I imagine it might have been more difficult on a sportier car. It takes sllthe belt length to fit so for cars with a short belt it may not be as easy but I expect that would be the case for any seat. Poppy sits comfortably in it and I thing she like being able to see outside. It only has one recline setting rearwards but I haven't yet found this to be much of a problem as Poppy is relatively declined anyway. Her head does sometimes loll forward but it did with her newborn seat anyway. I haven't needed to remove the covers for washing and haven't used it yet forward facing l. Poppy is a petite 11mon old and thus will stay rearwards for a while. My only negative is that the belt routing means that the belt is a bit in the way whrn getting her in and out of the car, this may be a bigger issue for a stockier heavier child although its only in the rearward facing position. Maybe this is something that Maxi Cosi could think about. Overall I am v pleased with my purchase and think it was money well spent. Its a happy compromise between the more expensive entended rear facing and the cheaper sears on the market.
Very Pleased Excellent Buy
This car seat is amazing! We had the maxi cosi pebble but even though my little boy is only 11 months and a very small 11 months he seems too long for it especially when in other cars without the iso fix, so wanted to get a front facing big boy chair for when we changed him over at 20lb, I did a lot if research and it seems only in the uk do we plonk our babies in front facing at such early ages, the rest of Europe and the US wait until 8 months to, in some cases 4 years to do forward facing as babies neck muscles are so week any accident could be fatal! This Seat was pretty much one if 3 that offered rear facing at an older age, it was the most expensive of them but as I has got the pebble I went for it and love it! It's suitable from birth to 4 and I should have done this from the start, so sturdy and well made! Brilliant
Love it
This is the best car seat I've had and it can be used from birth and makes life so much better not having to carry the heavy car seat
Would recommend this to any parent
Used as a rear facing seat, installed as per instructions, the angle of the car seat belt makes it very difficult to get our grandson in and out of the seat, as you either have to lift him over the seatbelt or get him in through the triangular gap between the belt and the car seat. We believe this won't be a problem when he is big enough for it to used as a front facing seat as the seatbelt will not have to run up across the seat. Seatbelt fixing set-up needs reconsidering in our view. We bought this as our daughter had bought it for their son, our grandson, so we both now have a car seat which is proving very tricky to use on a daily basis. A shame.
Not as easy to use as expected
Fantastic to use and have great confidence in its ability to protect our grandaughter.
Highly recommend this product
