Comfort and Safety
My child is very happy in their MGP. It’s a comfortable and cushy cover, but also doesn’t have them overheating in summer. The silver straps surprisingly haven’t stained and it’s seen a few spills and accidents over the last 12 months.
The easy adjust headrest is so convenient to get the perfect fit, and I have no trouble taking the seat in and out for cleaning or occasional use in another vehicle. Very easy to get a good install. I chose this model for the added side impact protection and extended harnessing. It doesn’t often go on sale but I managed to price match another stores sale with baby bunting.

Analysed and voted against Maxi Guard PRO but ended up buying its peer Millennia SICT
This car sear is all that you can ask for. We had compared it and our purchase was almost final but we came across Britax Safe n Sound Millenia SICT.
Maxi Guard PRO car sear is better in all terms as compared to its peer Millennia SICT except that Maxi Guard PRO is a forward facing car seat. There is no way your 6 month old bub will sit in a forward facing car seat starting their 6th or even 7th month. The bub is just stabilizing their senses and I feel it is too dangerous for the bub to sit in a forward facing car seat at least before 1- 1.5 years of age (may be more).
The best part is the age group and most of the people that have bought give good reviews about it. It also gives certain seating positions but I did heard a lot of parents complaining that their bub throws their neck while sleeping. We though that would be dangerous to even a 2 - 2.5 year old and unfortunately, we decided against it and bought its peer over it. Yes, the peer is upto 4 years of age unlike Maxi Guard PRO but that is the cost we are willing to bear in order to see our bub safe and sound.
It would be worthy to note that we were upgrading from Maxi Cosi and our bub was 5 months when he was a bit uncomfortable in the maxi cosi capsule. However, the padding seems much better in the Millennia and we cannot be more happier.
Tiny bit bulky in small car but great for a large child
FULLY HARNEDESSED CHILD SEAT ♡♡♡♡
My kid is LARGE and he fits comfortably and easily into this seat with growing room. I fully expected to reach 7 yrs without him growing out of of it.
Love the 2 cup holders which will stretch to fit larger bottles.
Adjustable of straps is so easy, its my favourite part
You can also adjust crotch straps which is a must for boys!! Pinching that area is scary but not an issue with this seat.
Sits very upright in my car so not great if child falls asleep often, but as mine doesn't he loves how grown up he fee
Great Harnessed Booster Seat.
We’ve been using this seat for our kids for a few years now.
They are easy to install, the children love them, fabrics are easy to clean and quick to dry.
I like that they can remain harnessed for longer (like 8 to 10 years old). Easy strap adjustment as the child grows.
We actually have 4 of these seats across two vehicles.
Would be good if Britax made their seats more affordable though…
Quality product no isofix.
It’s a quality product. My concern that it costs hundreds of dollars and there’s no isofix. At that price point it’s an expectation. I would give it a five if it had this.Show details
Maxi guard pro navy
Very comfortable compared to other brands I have owned it’s really easy to install
I Take all 3 of mine out to clean once a month and wash all the covers
And really easy to adjust head rest and tighten belts
Own two of this now. Planning to buy a 3rd one.
Pricey but very safe and comfortable.
Easily adjustable head height to suit 1.5 and 3.5yo.
Like the pouch at the front. I store socks and snacks there!
Found the bottle holder a little small and won't fit standard kids drink bottle.Show details
Quality car seat that will last years
I purchased this Britax car seat for my 1 year old. The fabric is soft and seat is comfortable. My son is very happy, it fits him well. The only thing is it is not ISOFIX compatible. Otherwise, happy with it. High recommend it.Show details

Safe and comfortable
Love this car seat.
Safety rating is fantastic and our little guy always seems really comfortable.
Its easy to install and remove.
It is also one of the better looking car seats on the market.
It is quite large so if you had small car it may be a bit squishy but over all we love it.
Great car seat.
Easy to adjust, easy to get in and out of car.
Cupholders super handy.
Love the long age range of being able to have my child in a 5 point harness.
Amazing seat but I think the age should be 2 years - 8 years not 6 months - 8 years.
- Not too hard to install.
- Daughter seems comfortable.
- Beautiful gender neutral seat design.
- Has cup holders.
- Can recline (we have ours in the recline position and haven't had any issues with her head flopping forward or anything like that while she sleeps).
- LOVE that the age goes until 8 years or when the child meets the marker, big reason why we bought this seat as I think it's great value for money.
- Only sits properly/safely in the middle seat of our back seat due to recline bar the bar under the back.
Perfect car seat
Love this car seat - safe, easy to get in / out of & adjustable. We initially bought for our large frame son before he transitioned to a booster. Now we have our polar opposite tiny framed daughter in it & perfectly adjustable to suit both their needs! Highly recommend.Show details

My 2 year old is very comfortable in this seat, especially when I look at how u comfortable he is in a different seat he uses in a backup car. We don't remove the seat often but my husband had no difficulty installing it. It is well padded without causing overheating, and the straps are so smooth to tighten and loosen. It also comes with an inbuilt cupholder on the sideShow details
Only the best for my boys
I have 2 of these seats and when little mr 3 is old enough I will be buying him one too.
They are supportive and hold children secure! Easy to adjust and comfortable for kids!
My daughter and I love this seat
So comfortable easy to install and protects my girl from getting hurt in a accident. I had the normal maxi guard beforehand and I was in a accident we were rear ended and my daughter didn't budge she was unhurt and fine she done good and the seat done its job and I got my replacement :)

Great car seat
Beautifully made seat that my toddler loves. He is really comfortable and the cup holders aren’t too far for him to reach. The shoulder pads won’t seem to stay in place and slide down constantly but that’s my only complaint. I had to buy it to replace a seat that didn’t have the right connections to be fitted in my Navara.Show details
Questions & Answers
Can the child press release the harness on their own? To me that poses a risk with a tantruming 3 year old who wants out of her seat! Our current seats for both kids you have to find the release mechanism under the fabric, a bit harder for adults but not the slightest chance of a child undoing their own harness whilst driving
My 5 year old still can’t release themselves. My 7 year old can. It would depend on the child and the strength in their hands and their age. You could try going to a shop that sells the seats and letting your child try it out and see if they can undo it.
Thanks so much, she is pretty Intelligent but also understands when we need to be safe so I might just go for it: there are no shops near me that sell that seat unfortunately.
I’m just wondering what bottles the cup holders are actually made to fit? As I have tried so many & none of them so it seems pointless having it
Hi, thank you for contacting us, the cup holder is flexible, squeeze and flex to suit your drink bottle.
Kind Regards the Britax Team
I have a maxi guard pro, the foam underneath where my child sits has a fair bit of wear and tear. Can this be replaced?
Hi Tiara, thank you for your message the cost of the replacement foam infills is $25.88 the pair, this price does include the postage and handling charge. Part No. 2108062 Please email firstname.lastname@example.org your name, address, contact phone no. and the part no. #2108062 - Foam Infills. Kind Regards the Britax Safe-n-Sound team.

Britax's Safe-n-Sound Maxi Guard PRO is a sturdy, and much loved, forward-facing baby car seat and a member of the trusted Britax Maxi family - with over 97% giving the product a 4 or 5 star rating.
Britax claims that the product can safely be used on children from the ages of 6 months to 8 years, but it is always safer to keep your baby in a rear-facing seat for as long as possible before transitioning to a forward-facing one.
For those concerned with the safety rating of their products, look no further. The Maxi Guard PRO ranks 4.9 in build quality, is durable, cushioned and well-protected on all sides with a dual layer Head and Torso Side Impact Cushion Technology™ (SICT™).
Thermo5® high-performance fabric with Bamboo Charcoal ensures that your child is kept comfortable in all weather conditions - along with 2 reclining positions to suit your sleeping toddler.
A 6 point Hassle Free Harness™ is a key feature which keeps your child securely restrained at all times. Along with the head rest, both features are adjustable to suit a growing child.
Practicality is a strong suit, offering ample storage space, cup holders and a full length messy mat.
Reviewers especially love:
- The security of the well-designed safety features of the Maxi Guard PRO provides much needed protection and peace-of-mind for concerned parents
- How comfortable the seat is for their little ones
- The ease of installation shown through a physical manual and a YouTube video
- Easily cleanable
- Adjustable headrests & harnesses to support your child as they grow
- Pouch at front to store snacks, toys & other goodies
- The design is sleek, gender neutral and modern
- The brilliant value for money since this product can be used for 7 and a half years until your child is 8 years old!
Things to consider:
- The product is on the larger side and can take up space in the back sets which may not be suitable if you have a small vehicle or multiple baby car seats in one car
- The price is in the mid to high range
- Forward-facing only and not suitable for children under the age of 6 months and not recommended until your child outgrows rear-facing seats
- Not ISOFIX compatible and will require a manual seat belt installation
