Car seat safety has always been so close to my heart. When James was a little baby (how is that 5 years ago already?), we had our very first Maxi Cosi seat. It was the infant carry seat and of course we loved it! Fast forward 5 years, Jaxson has the Opal Maxi Cosi seat and James got upgraded to the Titan.

We received the Titan a couple months ago and I still remember James’ face – he was ecstatic! A brand-new big boy seat. So besides how sleek it looks, what are the features?

• A multi-stage car seat suitable for babies, toddlers and children from 9 months to 12 years (approx. 9-36 kg)

• Easy adjustable and smooth headrest of this reclining car seat grows along in 11 steps to provide comfort for your little one

• Solid Isofix installation with top tether offers high stability for this convertible car seat

• This group one/two/three car seat has five comfortable positions from upright to relaxed sleeping

• Cosy padding and cushioned inlay provide extra comfort

“ The Maxi-Cosi Titan is a multi-age car seat for both toddler & child. First used with a 5-point safety harness to fasten the child, the Titan becomes then a group 2/3 booster, using the regular 3-point car belt. For best comfort and fit the headrest can be adjusted with great ease. “

All in all, it’s a great seat and I have no complaints. Well, James has no complaints either  Maxi Cosi is a trusted brand worldwide and I trust them with my precious kiddo’s hands down.

Now that it’s close to December holidays, please moms and dads, buckle up your kids! Did you know that correctly used child safety seats can reduce the risk of death by as much as 71 percent? And more than half of car seats are not used or installed correctly. Please make sure your seats are correctly installed and don’t be shy to ask for advice or help!

Some car seat tips from my side:

– Make sure those straps are snug enough. They shouldn’t be able to Houdini themselves out of it.

– Rear facing is recommended until at least 2 years old.

– Keep activities handy for kids who get bored. Books, crayons, stickers or anything that makes sounds always works for my kids.

– Don’t forget the snacks! I pack one lunchbox with a bunch of little snacks. Bite sized are the best – and the more variety, the better.

– Ipads/tablets work! Put some educational games on there or download a couple Blippi videos and you are good to go 😉

– Be safe. The roads are so dangerous especially during holidays – make sure you have every safety measure in place.

Wherever you travelling to this December holiday – buckle up. Make sure YOU are strapped in safely and make sure your kids are strapped firmly in their seats. Be safe, always.
