Maxi-Cosi Lara²: Our newborn doesn't seem comfortable in it, what to do?

Ugur • 26 Feb 2023

Hi, we have a Maxi Cosi Lara2 compact stroller, but our newborn baby doesn't seem comfy and safe inside. Do we need a special insert for that or simply laying down the back part and fastening the belts enough?

Thanks a million.

Hey, Ugur,

This stroller is a travel, occasional use-only model, and I personally would not really use it for everyday walks with a newborn at all. Ocasionally, you can use it with such a little baby, only in the lie-flat position and with the harness belts tight just right - ideally with a soft footmuff or a universal soft cot or cocoon so that the baby is cozy and feels safe in an enveloped environment. For regular use, though, I would get a larger stroller with more padding, more enclosed space, and optimally with a carrycot option (or a lie-flat car seat). This one is too hard, small-wheeled for such use.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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