    i have both these the maxi cosi cabriofix and the m&p i.p i think it is :-/ whats the weight limit for um both cant find instructions for m&p one n bought maxi cosi second hand so dont have a clue :-/

    just thinking cos lo is too heavy for the car seat adaptors just checked them weight limit is 20lb so just wondered if she was too heavy for car seats too :-/

    hope not cos we seen the ff car seat we want but no way she old enough for that yet so if she too big for infant car seat we gunna have to look into seats further and buy her a rf one

    we had a road safety officer at the antenatal class on Saturday and I think she said 29 lbs for a maxi cosi but she did seem to look at the seat to find that out (maybe a label on it somewhere??) I didn't realise but they have a branch in my town and you can just ring up and go to see them and they will look at your seat and advise if it's fitted correctly and give you other general advice on car seats.

    It should last her till 8/9months old. :) x

    Edit - You'll find she'll be 8/9months by the time she reaches that weight limit. Can't see her putting 8lbs on in the next few weeks. :flower:

    she also said don't worry if their legs are hanging over the edge of the seat, it's the head positioning that matters and once their head is popping above the seat back then you need to look at moving to the next seat up. Apparently they have done loads of tests with dummies in the car seats and never once has a leg broken due to them hanging over the seat (provided they are facing backwards still I think)

    yeah her heads fine and nice and snug not popping over the top yet lol her legs do but like you say no need to worry about that ill just keep an eye on her weight if she creeps up to 28lb quicker than expected then will have to look for other car seat if not then i would rather her in her infant carrier anyway as we can put the mamas and papas car seat on the pram still which is so much more easier than messing about taking her out etc especially as she sleeps in the car A LOT so if we had a "proper" car seat we would have to disturb her all the time and if you disturb her sleeping then she gets really ratty bless her lol
