Maxi-Cosi Zelia²: Can the carrycot with the padding should be used like that, or should the padding be removed?

sara • 01 Jun 2021


I had a "traditional", hard base lay flat bassinet with my first, and now got the Maxi Cosi Zelia.

Now, with my newborn, I am a bit unsure and want to hear it from someone else - should I put the newborn in, just so? On the inserted padding? Is it alright to put him in? Or should I take all the padding out..? I just need to hear how to use it properly, I guess.

I really appreciate any help you can provide. ☺️

Hey, there!

No worries there, these 2in1 prams/pushchairs (the better ones, usually) always do have some padding inside since the base is thinner and less solid than a 'normal' hard-based carrycot. So yes, you can use the carrycot just so, with the padding - it is newborn-friendly 😊 No need to remove the padding until maybe you need more space for the growing child later on.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
