The decision to have a third child is never an easy one. Of course, in a perfect world of endless money, huge houses and huge cars, we would have 4-5 children! We love kids and we love babies! But the reality for many families, such as ours, is three is the limit.
So, when we found out we were pregnant with our third child and now newest arrival Hazel, we instantly knew that we wanted to provide the best for her seeming she will be the last baby we will be able to lovingly spoil and dote over.
A few months before she was born, we began writing our “to get” list…
Finding the perfect pram and new car to cater for our needs didn’t take too long but it was the car seat that we wanted to take our time with, ensuring that we found one that would grow with Hazel into her toddler years and one that did not compromise on safety or comfort. Enter the Maxi-Cosi Moda.
When it comes to car seats, there are many options on the market which can be confusing and overwhelming for parents. Safety of course, was the number one priority on our list of desired features so when we came across the Maxi-Cosi Moda with its Air Protect Technology that goes beyond the testing required by Australian Standards (which are the toughest in the world), we knew it was the perfect seat for us.
The Maxi-Cosi Moda is equipped with revolutionary Air Protect technology which has been designed to protect children from side impact collision, immediately reducing crash forces around the child’s head. You should feel these cushy pads that cradle Hazels head…they are seriously amazing, like giant, already inflated airbags protecting her tiny little noggin bringing us immediate peace of mind every time we strap her in.
Hazel fits into the Maxi-Cosi Moda perfectly and it can be used in a rearward facing position up to 30 months of age. The newborn insert means she nestles into the seat comfortably and the “cool baby” wicking fabric keeps her cool and dry in the summer heat.
We love the non twist straps which are super easy to clip together and the machine washable padded covers are also an added bonus as they are removable with no need to re-thread the harness – a big time saving and money saving tick if you have had the seat professionally fitted.
Aside from all the amazing features and safety components, the Maxi-Cosi Moda is also incredibly stylish and beautifully designed and will grow with Hazel until approximately four years of age – everything we were looking for and more in a car seat – only the best for our little girl!
So our “to get” list is complete – new pram – tick, new car – tick and new car seat – tick! All we need now is for her to sleep through the night and learn to wipe her own bottom and we will have the perfect newborn experience!
