We’re in the last couple days before the new baby boy arrives and we’ve have had fun doing all the baby preparing over the past few months. One of the most important items on my list was the car seat. When Poppy was a newborn we had a hand me down Maxi-Cosi infant seat that we loved, but since then it has expired, so we were in the market for a new infant seat. I knew I wanted another Maxi-Cosi because I’m a bit of a car seat freak ( that annoying friend that will adjust your kids chest strap if it’s not in place). The Maxi-Cosi Mico Max 30 is what we went with for this baby. My favourite things about it are the Air ProtectTM superior side impact protection to protect their little heads, that it is the lightest weight premium infant car seat in its class, the Cozi-Dozi insert adds extra support for baby’s head and neck of smaller babies, and of course all of them look so nice and sleek. At the same time we also upgraded Poppy’s convertible car seat to the Maxi-Cosi Jool. She originally had a “big kid car seat” by a different brand but we weren’t happy it, we wanted to get something that we felt was safer for our precious cargo and we are loving this one.
Poppy was SO excited to go test drive the new seat. Weird to see two car seats back there now, We’re a full load!
Poppy is 3 and still rear facing. It is the safest position for kids, so since we are able to make it work with her weight we will keep her rear facing as long as possible.
Well, the infant car seat is installed and the hospital bag is packed, we are officially ready for Monday! Here is a breakdown of some of the items in my hospital bag...
