It’s a top safety rated car seat base that can hold a child up to the weight of 18kg. The Maxi-Cosi FamilyFix Base easily affixes via the ISOfix points in your vehicle and will keep your child on a click-and-go base for longer making it easy for parents on the go.
This base is compatible with both the Maxi-Cosi Pebble and CabrioFix infant car seats, which are both suitable from birth. Once your child has outgrown their infant seat, the base can then take the Maxi-Cosi Pearl Car Seat which is a Group 1 car seat that can take a child from 9 to 18kg (approximately 9 months to 4 years). This means that the base can be used for two consecutive aged car seat groups. So will keep your child secure up until the age of 4. The base is only compatible with vehicles that have ISOfix points, so do make sure you check before purchase.
The great thing about the FamilyFix Base is that it has both light and sound confirmation of correct installation. This is a massive bonus because for parents that want to be on the go quickly only having a light and sound to look out for means that one this is heard; off they go. The batteries inside are easily replaceable, however, these should last for a very long time.
It can also recline your infant car seat to offer an additional upright position. Creating that little bit more legroom so your baby can stay rearward facing for longer which has been tested as safer for younger children. If you are to go on and use it with a Pearl car seat then the FamilyFix base offers 5 recline positions so your child shall stay comfortable for longer. We love this feature as it allows a child to sleep more easily.
Its total weight is 6.8kg and is suitable for use from birth to 18kg. It can hold a child up to approximately 3 and half years, which is great if you want to just buy one base. It is only compatible with the Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix and Maxi-Cosi Pebble infant car seats (these must be rearward facing), and then the Maxi-Cosi Pearl Group 1 Car Seat. This keeps your child safely attached to ISOfix points and the indicators will confirm correct installation of both the base and car seat attached.
