Car Seat Upgrade

Thank you Maxi-Cosi for sponsoring this post. Keep your little adventurers comfy, safe & stylish with the Maxi-Cosi Magellan™ Max 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat!

Can you believe we recently just switched Xander out of an infant car seat and into a NEW Maxi-Cosi Magellan™ Max 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat? I know, I know, it’s been a long time coming. But if I’m honest, he was never uncomfortable and fit perfectly into his little car seat and if I’m sincere, researching about new car seats has always been so overwhelming for me to do.

There’s so much information out there about car seats and the safety of each car seat, but I knew we wanted to invest in a Maxi-Cosi car seat because, after much research, we found that Maxi-Cosi is the top-selling baby car seat brand worldwide. Over the past 30 years, Maxi-Cosi car seats have carried over 50 million babies home from the hospital.

Not only did we know we wanted to purchase a Maxi-Cosi car seat, but we found that their new Maxi-Cosi Magellan™ Max is an innovative new 5-in-1 convertible car seat that accommodates children from birth to age 10 (5 lbs. to 120 lbs.) and it smoothly transitions between five modes of use: Baby Rear-Facing, Toddler Rear-Facing, Toddler Forward-Facing, Child Forward-Facing, and Belt-Positioning Booster.
This was a huge sell for us, because this car seat will be able to grow with Xander, and we no longer have to have that stress of switching him to a new car seat every time he outgrows a position, even though at his rate, I highly doubt he will outgrow anything anytime soon haha! He’s so tiny and petite.

It was so cute the other day when Joe went to set up his new car seat in the family van. Xander, of course, was right beside him saying, “I go buh bye- I go buh bye.” & by the time Joe was done installing the car seat correctly, he has convinced us all to pack up and take his new car seat for a little spin- to the library that is.

I’m not going to lie, seeing him in an upgraded car seat has made me so emotional. Like, can I really be in that much denial that my baby boy will be two years old in just a few short months?

I think we scored a huge jackpot when it came to having a perfect car baby because he has always been so easy-going on car rides; never fussy. Never needing more than just a comfy place to sit and an occasional sippy cup filled with his drink of choice; which is most likely water or some apple juice.

This transition to his new car seat has been easy peasy, and we are 100% obsessed with how comfortable, and convenient Maxi-Cosi’s new car seat is. My favorite feature of the car seat is the EZ Out harness system to keep straps and the crotch buckle from getting caught and bunched under your child. Paired perfectly with the ClipQuik’s auto-magnetic chest clip, parents can open it quickly with just one hand—making it easy for parents but hard for kids to unbuckle.

Now by a show of hands, how many of you can say that you aren’t intrigued in investing in one of these bad boys? You can find the Maxi-Cosi Magellan™ Max 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat for $399.99 at Albee Baby, Nordstrom, and Buy Buy Baby, and other specialty retailers.
