Parents who want to carry a baby in a lightweight (5lb) carrier that detaches from the rest of the car seat when not in use. This innovative infant car seat is the first of its kind with a two-piece design: a lightweight removable carrier (the soft inner part) that can be removed from the rest of the car seat (the hard shell), so that you can leave the bulkiest part behind when carrying your child outside the car. The carrier also has a cross-body strap for hands-free carrying and clicks into select Maxi-Cosi strollers (and various premium strollers with adapters, sold separately). This infant car seat + base is safe, reliable, and designed for rear-facing babies weighing 4-22 lbs. Installs with one-click, self-retracting, rigid LATCH system, can be used without the base for ride sharing, and is made of premium, fire-retardant-free fabrics.
