Wonderful capsule - only flaw is the terrible hood!!
This is a great capsule - really easy to use and goes in and out of the base very smoothly and quickly. We previously had the Maxi Cosi Citi capsule which is definitely a bit lighter but we wanted to upgrade as the head support just didn't seem as good as for other capsules on the market, and we found with the Citi that there was a bit of 'head flop' going on when our older daughter was a newborn. I can safely say that the Mico provides much more head support and seems to allow baby's head to be in a much better position where it doesn't move. ...HOWEVER, the big flaw with the Mico is the terrible hood/cover - this aspect is much better on the Citi as the hood is attached to the handle. On the Mico, the hood doesn't come down smoothly or easily and it seems to clash with the anchor belt to the point where you could easily hit your baby in the head with the latter (as other reviews have mentioned). Such a stupid design flaw, they've tried to 'upgrade' the hood from the Citi but the Citi's hood was so so much better.

100% worth it for your newborn
We purchased this as it was recommended by a family member. I'm so happy that we did as it has been a lifesaver. It'a one of the most highly rated capsules on the market for safety. Its was easy to install with the isofix option. Easily attached to our pram (Reds Baby) with adaptors. The best part is that our little man was able to complete his naps once we got home as we did not have to disturb him taking him out of the car. We always stuck to the maximum 2 hours within a 24 hour period for use. I know its expensive and a lot of people just can't justify the expense as they will need to purchase a convertible car seat within 6 months. However we see the value of this option and will tell anyone who will listen.

Good but chunky
Heavy and hardly fit in the back of a sedan. Ended up exchanging it for a smaller model of the same brand. Which I am happy with. Would recommend for a bigger car

Really good but a bit hot
During the time when my baby was in the seat, she got hot really quickly and used to fuss. We did put air con on but around area where her head is, would end up sweating. It can be quite hot in Australia but also the fabric on the seat made her sweat a lot and made her feel grumpy and fussy.

The mico was purchased for us by family in the nomad navy and we loved it. We have just transitioned our bub out of the capsule and into a car seat at 9 months. We could have kept bub in the mico for longer (she was still over an inch from the shoulder markers) however it was just getting a little heavy now that bub is getting older and bigger. Very easy to get in and out of the car and we
Purchased adapters so that we could clip the capsule straight onto our pram base (icandy peach). The hood on the capsule I believe is the best on the market....

Very good quality product, pretty light considering the quality of the capsule. Haven’t installed yet but instructions look relatively straight forward. Love the different colour options available, the blue works great with our pram.

Questions & Answers
How do you keep the hood up?!?! It just keeps falling down!!!! It is so, so frustrating.
Sorry i don't have a answer for you. But I think it's because it's very flimsy and that why it keeps falling down very annoying
Hi Faith, can I please ask you contact our customer service team on firstname.lastname@example.org so they can help you resolve the issue with your Mico hood. Kind regards, Maxi-Cosi
I have purchased a mico plus and js recieved the adaptors for our pram which is a babybee rover 19. Everything fits but I am unable to remove capsule from adaptor can anyone help
Hi Dot, the release is really easy. On either side of your capsule (right near the base of the handles) you will find two leather buttons, simply push down on these buttons and your capsule will be released from the adaptors. If you have any other questions please call our customer service team. Call 1300 809 526.
