The Beauty and the Bump NYC family is no stranger to the Maxi Cosi brand. They have been the number one car seat brand we have turned to for the last few years using the Maxi Cosi Prezi™, and the Maxi Cosi Pria™ 70 and 85, which used to be the highest in their lineup until their latest, the Magellan™hit the market in August.
Now, thanks to Maxi Cosi, we are proud users of the Maxi Cosi Magellan™ 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat.
The Maxi Cosi Magellan™ 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat is a true game changer. We know how expensive baby gear items can be, especially car seats, so imagine not having to spend money on multiple car seats because your kids have outgrown them and needs to move onto the next stage. The Magellan™ is the only car seat your child will ever need from birth to up to 10 years old (5 lbs. to 120 lbs.). The only one. Heck with that weight requirement I can even fit in it. .:LOL:. But seriously, we need to make sure that our kids are safe in a car seat that meets their height and weight requirements at every stage of their life. This one is it.
Children should use a car seat or booster until they have reached a height of at least 4 ‘9.
Maxi Cosi Magellan™ AirProtect
The Maxi Cosi Magellan™ features the AirProtect Side Impact protection system for your child. And because one in four car accidents are side-impact collisions, this is a great feature to have in a car seat. The air-filled headrest instantly protects the child’s neck and head in a side impact collision by absorbing the impact of a collision and helps to slow down the child’s body as it travels as a result of the collision.
Maxi Cosi Magellan™ Has Features that Makes the Child Comfortable as they Grow
14 Position Headrest
The ability for a seat to grow with your kid and provide comfort is important. Maxi Cosi gets this, and added a 14-position headrest to ensure kids are comfortable in their seat as they grow. My 7-year-old daughter is already 4’ 2” and has complained that her other seat was uncomfortable on her shoulders. The harness shoulder height on the Magellan™ the harness shoulder height begins at 5″ and goes all the way to 18″ taking away the discomfort for a child her height.
7-position Radial Recline
Babies will definitely let you know when their seat is not comfortable. Have you experienced a drive with a baby crying the entire way due to not liking being in a car seat? We have, and it isn’t fun. The Maxi Cosi Magellan™ 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat has seven (7) radial recline positions, allowing for a fully customized, safe and comfortable ride experience for babies and kids of all sizes. And for added convenience, parents can change the recline position with one hand. A lot of what parents do is with one hand, so this is perfect.
Higher Rear-facing Limits
The American Academy of Pediatrics is constantly adjusting their car seat requirements and did just that this past August. The Maxi Cosi Magellan™ 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat adjusted right along with it, accommodating rear-facing kids up to 40 lbs. or 4-years-old.
Maxi Cosi Magellan™ is Easy to Clean
Babies and kids make a mess. We know from personal experiences with diaper blowouts, milk and snack spills, and more. We are happy to learn that the Magellan™ premium fabric is removable and can be thrown in the washer and dryer for easy cleaning.
Car Safety Tips
- Have your car seat professionally installed at your local fire department or with a certified child passenger safety technician.
- When leaving your kids with family or friends, ensure the person taking care of them have a car seat, have it installed properly and use it.
- Check your car seat’s expiration date; life of a car seat is from six to eight years. Replace it if it has expired.
- Replace your car seat after a collision.
- Children love to ride in the front passenger seat as they get older, but it is best for them to sit in the back until age 12.
- Lead by example and wear your safety belt. If your kids see that you are, they will wear one too.
