A car seat is possibly the most important purchase you will buy for your newborn baby as it is the one thing that will keep them as safe as possible if you were to be involved in an accident. With that in mind, you of course want to make sure that your car seat is the best choice and in an industry with safety at the forefront of every new release, we love to see new additions into the market, especially from car seat safety pioneers; Maxi Cosi.

Today we want to take a closer look at the brand new Maxi Cosi 3way Family, a system that has been designed for safety, comfort and convenience right from your very first journey.

Firstly, let’s look at the Maxi Cosi 3wayFix, an integral piece of the 3wayFamily as each car seat that is part of the family is securely fitted into the car using this Isofix base. As your child moves through each different stage, this Isofix base is the only one you will need from birth to 4 years old and the light and sound fitting indicators will give you ultimate peace of mind that your child is safe on every journey.

When it comes to your car seat, the 3wayFamily offers 2 options from birth and whether you choose just one or use both together, your newborn baby will be safe and snug at every stage.

The multi-functional Jade car cot is brand new from Maxi Cosi and has even won a prestigious innovation award for all of its unique features. Outside of the car, Jade is a comfortable carrycot that fits on the frame of your pushchair, offering a lay flat position for your newborn and can be used from birth up to 6 months old. Once you have finished strolling, Jade clicks off your pushchair and easily clicks onto your 3wayFix base, creating the ultimate in the car safety system. As Jade is laying flat, you don’t have to worry about your little one being in their seat for too long and if you’re planning longer car journeys in the first few months, this could be the option for you!

Your second option from birth is the award-winning iSize Pebble Pro car seat, a traditional infant carrier that will keep your baby safe from birth to around 12 months old. Just like Jade, the Pebble Pro is compatible with your pushchair for easy strolling and in the car, it clicks onto your Isofix base for quick and easy installation.

So what is the difference between these two options?

  • The Jade car cot is suitable from birth to 6 months old and the Pebble Pro is suitable from birth to 12 months old
  • The Jade car cot offers a lay flat position at all times so you don’t have to worry about a time limit for your baby. With the Pebble Pro we advise taking your baby out of the seat approximately every 90 minutes allowing them to stretch out.
  • The Jade car cot will take up approximately 2 spaces in the back of your car and the Pebble Pro fits in one seat (if you travel with lots of passengers you may need more space)

As we mentioned earlier, the 3wayFix base will last for 4 years and the next stage Pearl Pro iSize is suitable from 6 months to 4 years old, so no matter whether you choose the Jade or Pebble Pro, (or a combination of both) the Pearl Pro has been cleverly engineered to keep them safe for many years to come.

With the option of rearward facing to 4 years old or forward facing (from 12 months), the Pearl Pro iSize offers ultimate flexibility and can switch positions easily to suit every situation.  With a full recline available no matter what the direction, the Pearl Pro iSize is perfect for afternoon napping and the multi-position headrest will keep them comfortable and protected as they grow.

Available in 10 different colours, the Pearl Pro iSize is not only super safe but your little one will travel in style on every journey too!
