Is the Maxi-Cosi Peri Worth it?

We always think a rotating car seat is worth it! However, whether a product is worth it really depends on your personal preferences, priorities, and budget. Let's take a look at what makes the Maxi-Cosi Peri worth it!

Designed by industry experts, Peri is pretty lightweight for an infant car seat, weighing in at under 8 pounds (excluding canopy and inserts) and features TensionFix™ to ensure proper installation and eliminate common belt tension issues. With five recline positions, a thoughtfully designed canopy for full sun protection and privacy, and an easily adjustable QuikFit harness, Peri makes car rides hassle-free for both you and your little one. And with a name inspired by the calming and newness of peridot, Peri is the perfect addition to your journey with your child. 

And what makes Peri even better: it rotates! Loading and unloading your baby couldn't be easier. Simply use the 180° FlexiSpin Technology to rotate the car seat towards the door to easily buckle or unbuckle your baby. This technology saves your back, and helps tremendously once your baby starts wiggling or fighting getting buckled!

However, for some parents a rotating infant seat may not be valued as much since you can easily take the infant seat out of the car and load and unload your baby in your home. Although, once your baby starts chunking up, most parents do find themselves leaving the car seat in the car and load baby in the car rather than carrying the seat back and forth. 

The Maxi-Cosi Peri will fit a baby up to 32" in height / 30 pounds / their head within one inch of the top of the seat - when one of these limits is met, the seat is outgrown. Most babies outgrow their infant seat around a year old.
