If babies had a voice in the choice, they would ask for the Maxi-Cosi Mico AP car seat because it is so comfy. Reviewers also give it high marks. The Maxi-Cosi Mico AP is a great choice for smaller infants.

It comes with a stay-in-car base, sun canopy and Cozi-Dozi TM infant insert. Maxi-Cosi is part of the Dorel Juvenile Group, which includes Safety 1st infant car seats and Quinny strollers. Dorel listened to the comments of parents about earlier models and created the new AP (Air Protect) version with a larger canopy and easier base release.

With a Maxi-Cosi Mico you have a good selection of compatible strollers to create your personal travel system. (See Best Infant Car Seat Reviews for the stroller list.) Optional accessories include a foot muff, bug net and rain shield. You can also purchase an additional base unit to install in a second car. The car seat has a one-year warranty.

Maxi-Cosi Mico AP Review – What’s Good

At just over 8 pounds, the Maxi-Cosi Mico AP infant car seat (without the base) is lighter than most, making it easier to carry.

This infant car seat is also easy to install using either the LATCH system base or just a seatbelt without the base. The seatbelt installation is convenient for use in taxis or when you ride with friends or family. It also installs securely on an airplane seat and is FAA-approved.

The Maxi-Cosi Mico AP infant car seat will keep your baby comfortable. It has a soft, cotton-like cover that is breathable. The cover is also easy to remove and wash – an essential feature for baby equipment.

Safety features include a five-point harness and the latest in side impact protection.

Through the precise release of air, Air Protect compresses and shields children from side impact intrusion and immediately reduces crash forces where the child is most vulnerable – the head. Air Protect does this by extending ride-down, the amount of time it takes to slow a child’s movement in a crash. By extending ride-down time, Air Protect creates a slower, softer landing. – from Maxi-Cosi

Maxi-Cosi Mico AP Review – Concerns

The infant height (29″) and weight (22 lbs.) limits for this infant car seat are among the lowest on the market. If your baby is larger than most, he or she may outgrow this seat sooner than you expect. But once your baby is that large, you probably don’t want to be carrying them around in a car seat anyway.

When attaching the Maxi-Cosi Mico AP  to the base, be sure you hear it click. If you are not careful, there is a strap that can get in the way of the base locking latch. You will get better with practice!
