Pregnant! How did you share the news?
Enjoying life’s journey in so many ways
Being pregnant is a big thing and announcing the news to your family and friends evokes happy, surprised and touching emotions. How did you share the big news?
Everyone at Maxi-Cosi feels privileged to do what we do. Privileged to be involved in moments of enjoyment between parents and their children. Not every company can say that they are in the business of creating happy moments. It’s an attitude that prompts us to say in our communications to parents “enjoy every moment” – not “enjoy our products”. It is this unique relationship between Maxi-Cosi and its customers that has fostered a rather special corporate culture. One that encourages Maxi-Cosi people to not only care for their customers but care for their community as well. On an organizational level, this culture also helps guide strategy and decision-making.

"We spoke about it during Thanksgiving, all the family was here, and we found it perfect to announce the big news before enjoying a good meal."
Care for the environment
For example, many Maxi-Cosi people give their spare time to organizations such as “CliniClowns” and the “Theodora Foundation” - initiatives that work for the well-being of children in hospitals. Maxi-Cosi and its parent company are also sponsors of these - and other charitable activities. You can read more about how we get involved on www.maxi-cosi.com > about us > our engagements > social-responsibility.
Our caring commitment also expresses itself in our sustainability activities. We believe it is our responsibility to protect our world for our children and their children. And we do everything possible to minimize the impact our products have on the environment. Maxi-Cosi uses the latest life-cycle analysis assessment tools (LCA, also known as eco-balance, and cradle-to-grave analysis). These are techniques to assess and minimise the environmental impacts associated with all the different stages of a product’s life.

You too can get involved. See us on our website or on Facebook

Enjoy your new life!
When my partner was done with the few trips between the hospital and our home with the various luggage and gifts, the three of us stepped outside and we felt like it was the start of a new life. The weather was great. We were so proud just going around the neighborhood as a family. We had chosen a Maxi-Cosi car seat for the first few months, I found it more comfortable for the baby, and for our first car trip it was very easy to set up, I have to admit we had done some serious practicing beforehand. Jean & Joyce
I knew how to use the stroller. The Maxi-Cosi Elea is very easy to use, especially since my sister already had the same model. Paul & Prune
Bringing our baby back home wasn’t stressful at all, we were ready.
I was so happy! Becoming a parent it’s the start of a new life!
It felt almost surreal to bring our baby back home, we were so excited after all that time spent doing
and undoing the infant car seat, making sure we’d be ready for D-day. This time there was really someone in that seat, our baby looked so small in it, it’s at that moment we fully realized we were parents. Matt & Jenny
> dad’s story
With Billy & Emma > I really don’t like shopping. I always manage to say the wrong thing at the wrong time. Especially when my wife steps out of the fitting room. As a result, I try not to speak. And I try not to think about what I could be doing. I just hang around until she’s done. I call this feeling the shopping blues. So when she asked if we could go shopping for baby things, alarm bells started ringing. But fortunately, it didn’t turn out so bad. The first time I entered the baby shop, it gave me quite a start. All these women with their huge round bellies running around the shop. Like they could give birth at any moment…
�The men were invisible at first, but looking again, I noticed they followed the women at a short distance.�
Slowly and tentatively. Listening and nodding. Like they were just hanging around. The shopping blues were written all over their faces. It is good to know that you’re not alone. I also noticed couples who were only just pregnant. Their child-like innocence, their euphoric mood, as they sauntered along the shelves. That’s how we were too, my wife and I. Walking hand in hand, like equals, gazing in wonder at the multitudes of baby products. Laughing about the cutest baby clothes. Have you seen these baby sports shoes? So touchingly, endearingly sweet. I know they’re not meant for running the marathon, but just try to control yourself when you’re holding these tiny Nikes in the palm of your hand? I’ll tell
you, I couldn’t. Despite fierce protests from my wife, my first purchase was a little dog. It had the cutest brown eyes and lovely long soft ears and the cuddliest face you’ve ever seen. I can just picture our child dreamily sucking on its smooth black nose. Lightly, like a woman, I run my fingers through the baby clothes. At least, that’s how I imagine myself to look. In fact, it’s a little more complicated than that. For instance, last week, I came home with the cutest little baby summer suit. And by the time, our baby would fit into it, summer would be long gone. Luckily I’d kept the receipt. I should have kept the one for the nappies as well. A nappy’s a nappy, you would think. Well, think again. These are the small setbacks I’ve suffered. But I am refusing to slip back into the blues.
�It’s just too much fun. So I decided to take the best of both worlds and combine an old hobby of mine with a brand-new one: wheels.� In this case, wheels for the baby. Although it’s early days yet, I have examined every available option. Carefully, I check the carriage work. How many wheels? Three or four? I weigh up the pros and cons of all options. How fast can it go? What’s the maneuverability like? I carefully check the tire profiles. How will it handle in the woods? Or on sandy beaches? I take my new role very seriously. I travel far and wide to visit test courses. I take buggies for a trial run whenever I can. And all the time, my wife says nothing. She just looks at me with a vacant stare. In fact, it looks rather like the shopping blues.

Our strollers in the spotlights
Which stroller suits you?
Streety Plus Mix & Match
You will just love creating your own, unique stroller that perfectly suits your style. The very comfortable sleeping position and fast-fold system make the Streety Plus Mix & Match a highly comfortable and convenient stroller. It’s also easily to clip a carrycot or group 0+ car seat to quickly switch from car trip to stroller walk. Accessory packs available in 4 colours:
Make it fit your situation
Make it easy on yourself
Did you know that in baby’s first year, you will probably walk a total of around 1,000 kilometers? So it’s important you choose a good quality stroller that will not let you down. Also take into consideration how you use your stroller: in or outside the city, do you travel by car or use public transport? What is your housing situation? When you live in an apartment building without a lift, it makes more sense to go for a lightweight and compact stroller.
The stroller is an item you’ll use every day, so choose one that’s most practical for you. Is it easy to steer? Is the pushbar adjustable in height to fit you and your partner? For your child’s comfy afternoon nap, check if the stroller has a soft padded seat and a fully-flat recline position. A good stroller will enable you to switch the seat in a few seconds, so that your child can face you or face forwards.
How do you use the stroller? Strollers with suspension and large wheels are great for off-road walks. Urban life is best navigated in a (compact) stroller with smaller swivel wheels to maneuver around the crowds. A good stroller will have swivel wheels that you can lock. If you’re a frequent user of public transport, you’ll often need to lift and (un)fold the stroller, so a compact, lightweight stroller or buggy is your best choice. One that folds quickly to a self-standing unit, to store out of the way on the bus. If you are traveling by car often, make sure the stroller has a compact folding system so it easily fits your trunk.
Which accessories do you need? Besides the suncanopy and raincover that are included, you also need a parasol, a footmuff, carrycot and a nursery bag. These are all usefull accessories for your stroller.
Accessory tip: Get your accessor ies when choosing your stroller. That way there is no chance that you wi ll need to wait for your retaile r to order the one th at matches your stroller - you wi ll have it already th e moment you need it.
The ideal buggy for urban areas. The space-saving Mila can be used from the very first days up to 3.5 years old. You can also attach any Maxi-Cosi group 0+/1 car seat. Very compact, very easy to fold, you can store it in the tiniest of spaces and car trunks. The multi-reclinable backrest ensures continuous usage as your baby gets older and explores the world sitting up. Even nap times are comfortable for toddlers, thanks to the totally reclinable flat position.
Even more comfort from baby to toddler thanks to its rigid outer shell with spacious padded seat. From carrycot to stroller, your little explorer will enjoy the all-day comfort and lie-flat option of the stylish Elea. Perfect to go shopping, thanks to the large shopping basket and excellent suspension.
If you want a lightweight, compact, easy to use and fold stroller, then choose Noa. It’s highly maneuverable, has two recline positions, front suspension wheels and a handy big shopping basket underneath the seat.

I never expected taking home my newborn baby would be such a moving experience.
the self-reassuring arguments that I have thoughtup over the past months. I remind myself that I’m probably better prepared than most other first-time mothers. I’ve read all the books. I’ve seen the DVDs. It’s not so hard. Slowly, confidence returns.
But for me, the car trip home from the hospital was an unforgettable emotional rollercoaster. And although it was more than three years ago, I can remember it as if it was yesterday.
� I’ve had no training! No one has even asked if I am capable. Yet I’m totally responsible! �
As we walked to the car, the nurses waved and it seemed as though we were still under their expert guidance. Everything was right in the world. We had a beautiful little boy. I was taking him home. And my husband was by my side. But the instant I closed the car door, it struck me like lightning: “Wow, I’m taking this tiny human home with me. I’m responsible now. Responsible for feeding him, changing his nappy, bathing him, dressing him… But I’ve had no training! No one has even asked if I am capable. Yet I’m totally responsible!”
I pick-up Bill’s phone. There are already plenty of photos of Ricky on there. I flip through. Mostly, he’s sleeping and sometimes crying. But always beautiful. A warm glow of satisfaction and pride builds up inside. Flipping through the phone photos there’s a close-up of Ricky’s hand clutching Bill’s finger. Such a tiny, little hand. “What if it gets trapped in something? What if I didn’t secure him properly in the baby seat and one of the buckles is loose and he inserts a finger in it and it gets jammed and… What-the-heck am I thinking? I’ve never been hysterical in my life,” I tell myself. “Get a grip.”
The clunk of the car door shutting seemed to have disconnected me with the hospital, and I was overwhelmed with a totally unexpected feeling of being alone. Fortunately, my husband Bill was, as always, perfectly at ease with everything. And as we pulled out of the car park, Bill turned and smiled at me, he put his hand on my knee and said: “It’s just you, me and Ricky now.” “Exactly!” my brain screamed. “It is just us. And you’ve had no training either! What are we doing?” “Get a grip!” I tell myself. “This is so unlike you. Everything is going to be OK. And how hard can it be anyway? You don’t need training. Everything will come naturally.” I go over all
I ask Bill to stop the car so I can sit next to Ricky in the back. His face is that of a pure angel. I can’t stop staring at him. Just looking at him makes me feel happy. I’m no longer thinking about anything – just looking.

He was asleep the whole time during that trip back home. I, on the other hand, had experienced my first ever (and until now only) mild anxiety attack. But after talking to other first-time mothers, it’s not uncommon to feel a range of emotions when you take your first born home in the car. So be prepared, and if it happens to you, just get in the rear seat and stare.
What you need to know about car safety You’re off on your first trip with your baby. Exciting? Maybe, but are you prepared? Because we have a wide range of car seats, it is child is in, what area of the body needs protection and important to know which car seat fits your child needs. when you need to upsize. Hopefully these tips will help These tips will help you to define which category your you keep the travel enjoyable, comfortable and safe.
0 - 13 kg (Birth to approx. 1 year) (40 cm - 85 cm)
When is it the best time to move on to the next category of car seats:
When the top of the babies ears extend past the top of the seat back.
> The shoulders of the child should be 2 cm above the openings for the shoulder straps in the toddler seat, when headrest is set in highest position.
Support leg SUPPORT LEG
If a baby travels in the car facing forwards, the relatively heavy head is unrestrained in a forward collision – the head will be thrown forward. This can cause serious neck and head injury. Rearward facing restrains the head and spreads the impact over a greater area.
145 cm 130 cm
Recent research has confirmed that babies are safer in a rearward facing seat up to the age of at least 15 months. Only then is the child’s neck strong enough to withstand the impulsive force of an average forward collision. That’s why the new i-Size regulation clearly requires using rearward-facing seats for all babies up to the age of 15 months.
The zones that are protected in the different categories:
ISOFIX is an international system, which provides the safest, simplest and quickest method of correct installation of a child car seat. Instead of using the regular car seat belt, the ISOFIX system secures the baby seat to the car chassis via two specially incorporated anchor points behind the car seat.
Longer rearward facing travel is safer
0-18 kg 9 - 18 kg 15 - 36 kg (Birth to approx. 4 years) (approx. 9 months to 4 years) (approx. 3.5 years to 12 years) (40 cm - 105 cm) (80 cm - 105 cm) (135 cm - 150 cm)
All ISOFIX anchor points:
It sounds easy, but it’s easily done incorrectly: installing the seat in the car. Research has shown that 80 percent (!) of parents make mistakes in installing the car seat or fastening their child into the seat. 20 Percent of these mistakes endanger the life of the child in an accident.
ISOFIX also helps reduce the forward and sideward movement of the seat because of the 3rd anchor point like the top tether or the support leg. For the past 10 years, EU legislation mandated that all new cars must have ISOFIX anchor points as standard. Hence, currently approximately 60% of all cars on the road have ISOFIX anchor points.

The 2wayFamily includes the 2wayFix base, the Pebble and 2wayPearl car seats. The 2wayFamily is very easy to use, since it works with the ISOFIX click-and-go installation system, which also provides visual and audio confirmation when you have correctly installed the car seat.
Future-proof your baby’s travel safety with the Maxi-Cosi 2wayFamily. This highly flexible solution offers rearward-facing car travel from birth up to 4 years old, giving you significantly enhanced protection for your child’s head and neck.
What is i-Size? ‘i-Size’ is the name of a new EU safety regulation that affects car seats for children. It provides extra protection in several ways, most notably by stating that babies must travel rearward-facing for at least the first 15 months.
2wayPearl is i-Size compliant.

This extended rearward-facing provides better head and neck protection. In a forward collision, the impact is spread across the whole body and the head is cushioned - not thrust forward. This is especially important for babies since they have a relatively large head and weak neck. i-Size also provides better side-impact protection because, for the first time in a child car seat regulation, i-Size includes a specified level of required protection against side impacts. One other big improvement is that i-Size will help prevent up-sizing too soon, because it has a clear specification for rearward-facing up to at least 15 months old.
Size of baby’s head relative heavy to whole body
The 5 key points of i-Size 1
Improved protection at higher forces for side and front impact and a much better protection of head and neck

"To create a new Maxi-Cosi style – one that appeals to customers - we start by immersing ourselves in all kinds of trends from different but related fields,” says Constance Gerris, Dorel European Styling Manager. “We survey and investigate trends in fashion, art, architecture, and more. Books, magazines, webinars and blogs are all source material. We also sharpen our understanding with analysis from fulltime trend forecasters and, of course, by understanding our own customers’ preferences by analysing our own sales patterns. We saturate ourselves with all this input, and then we choose the trend that applies most to our customers - a choice that is based on experience and intuition.�

�That’s how the ‘Graphic Crystal’ collection started,” explains Mireille Kraneveld, Lead Stylist. “We knew that the World Wide Web plays a big part to young peoples’ lives, and has done so for many years. But recently the convergence between the physical world and the cyber universe has accelerated tremendously – thanks mainly to smart phones, tablets and Wi-Fi.�

The Pearl � Nowadays, interacting with friends is instantaneous, at any time of the day or night, in any place. This notion of living in a digital web inspired us to create the Graphic Crystal collection, featuring a digitalized pattern. A design that suggests continuous connection and interaction from anywhere to anywhere else - just like the digital world.� �That’s the creative side,” says Constance. “But we also carefully look at fabric quality issues. The fabric needs to be comfortable and safe as well as being able to stay in shape for a perfect fit. A car seat cover isn’t very good if it loses its shape after the first wash. Also we try to constantly reduce the environmental impact that our fabric production has, you can read more about that in the ‘About Us’ section of our website.�
