The Maxi-Cosi brand is no stranger to my family. I know them because they’re the global leading brand in car seat safety. Safety is number one on every first-time parent’s mind and with baby #2 being my precious rainbow baby it continues to be the deciding factor in my purchase decisions. On a personal note, my sister used this brand with both her children. Her three-year-old is actually using the Magellan. I was given the opportunity to review the Pria 3-in-1. They grow so fast and it makes a huge difference whether you buy an infant car seat to replace within months, or a convertible rear-facing car seat with inserts to safely support infants.

What Do You Take Your Newborn Home In?
I’m currently using the Maxi-Cosi Pria 3–in-1. In my opinion, it’s the best car seat that grows with the baby. I have it in blackened Pearl. The dark color and the sleek design suits my style as a young, modern mama. Because the Maxi-Cosi Pria 3-in-1 convertible car seat is designed to grow along with your child, they’ll find it fits perfectly from birth to 10 years. In terms of pounds, it fits children from 4-100 lbs. When We brought our daughter home, she was a tiny 19 inches long and weighed in at 6 lbs 9 oz. When was well within range for the infant inserts in the car seat and she passed the car seat test without slouching. The correct position and safe support are essential for protecting a newborn during the car ride home. The premium fabric and padding and soft-to-touch cushions maximize the safety and comfort of the seat. There is even an infant wedge pillow that offers support and promotes proper alignment during car rides.
The Convertible Maxi-Cosi Pria 3-in-1 Car seat
The 3-in-1 design of the Maxi-Cosi car seat uses rear-facing, forward-facing, and booster settings to adapt to your child’s development. We have it in the rear-facing position for now because she is under 40 lbs. One of my favorite things about this seat is the headrest protection that cushions impact from the side.
Time Saving Measures
With a full-time job and the other duties I have on my plate every day, I really appreciate any time-saving features. So, I love the machine-washable cushions and the One-Click LATCH connectors that speed up installation while enhancing child safety. It’s so important to correctly secure your car seat.
Specs and Other Options
The seat is so easy to use and safely install, especially because the 3-position recline base provides more room to position the baby at an angle that’s comfortable and safe. The Quick-Fit Shoulder Harness adjusts for easier and quicker security and includes five easy-to-adjust headrest positions to create a comfortable and customized fit for your growing babies.
The Maxi-Cosi Pria 3-in-1 Convertible car seat is available on Amazon.com for $289. It is available in six (6) uniquely stylish colors.
The Maxi-Cosi Pria 3-in-1 is a luxurious convertible car seat that happens to include top-rated safety features. With comfort, reliability, and ease of use to support its many convertible stages, it’s the only car seat you will ever need. Even preemies weighing as low as 4 lbs can safely ride. That feature alone distinguishes the Maxi-Cosi from other brands. Sturdy, durable, and heavy-duty; it’s a worthy first and last car seat that I expect to enjoy for years to come.
