Ocean Views Cures Baby Blues

Thank you Maxi-Cosi for sponsoring this post. Keep your little adventurers comfy, safe & stylish with the Maxi-Cosi Magellan™ Max 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat!

The weather can be quite unpredictable here in South Florida. This has made traveling with our little ones a bit more of a challenge. Just putting the kids in the car for a family trip takes an extra 10 minutes or so.

Fortunately, we had my husband’s family over last month for us to enjoy some time out.

Enjoying The View

Traveling with an infant means you carry a number of items with you for “just in case” scenarios. One of the things I’ve never been a fan of is carrying a car seat everywhere. I applaud moms who have the strength to carry their child’s car seat with their sleeping babies wherever they go.

We recently took a family trip to the beach to grab lunch by the water. There’s nothing more refreshing than being by the water, and feeling the ocean breeze on your skin.

During this trip, we introduced our little one to the Maxi-Cosi Magellan™ Max car seat.
It was the perfect car seat for our trip — comfortable and stylish.

After months of being indoors with a newborn, two boys and two pups, it was nice to get out and breathe in some of that salty air.

Prepping for this trip was interesting. We had half of my husband’s family staying with us, and the other half staying over at my brother-in-law’s home. Thankfully, we’re less than 10 minutes away from each other so this made meeting up before we headed out, a success.

The Maxi-Cosi Magellan™ Max transitions to meet your child’s needs every step of the way. From Baby Rear-Facing to Belt-Positioning Booster, the Maxi-Cosi Magellan™ Max offers a customized fit for all growth stages and ensures maximum protection in the proper position.

Another perk to purchasing a Maxi-Cosi car seat is that each one is made with premium fabrics that are machine washable and have a contemporary, timeless look. 

In addition, Maxi-Cosi is considered to be a top-selling car seat brand worldwide. For more than 30 years, Maxi-Cosi car seats have carried over 50 million babies home from the hospital.

The Maxi-Cosi Magellan™ Max is available at Albee BabyNordstrom and Buy Buy Baby and other specialty retailers for $399.99.

  1. We are out of the car seat time of our life. Very important to have the best car seat available. Know the rules for your state

  2. I love that these are machine washable. I don’t know how it is possible to make a car seat so dirty!

  3. The beach fixes everything. I’m out of the car seat phase finally but this looks sweet.

  4. I can only imagine how different it is travelling with a child. The Maxi Cosi sounds like it is a perfect seat to help keep a little one safe.

  5. That beach view is something I long for this time of year. I love that carseat and I have to get one for my brother who has a newborn.

  6. Yesterday I was just asking my mom about investing in a car seat. We just had our newborn last week and we haven’t purchased a car seat yet. We’re also not sure when it’s safe to carry him during travels.

  7. How cool that this adjusts as your child grows! Car seats have definitely come a long way in the last couple years. This looks like a great car seat!

  8. Looks like the best car seat for babies. So stylish and looks so comfy. I’ll recommend this to my sister for my niece.

  9. This carseat looks so safe! It is amazing how many safety features that keep kids safe that we did not have when my teens were younger.

  10. I could not agree with you more. Getting some nice sun usually does the trick!
