Maxi Cosi Mila (unboxing and my thoughts)


As a self confessed pram addict I opted to buy Alexandra a stroller. We were using her bugaboo Cameleon, don't get me wrong I love it I also had one for my second son its a gorgeous big pram with a 2 piece fold.
I wanted to go smaller and nippier!
We decided to go for the Maxi Cosi Mila in Dahila Pink Suitable from birth to 15kg
So here it is Alex is as excited as me by the looks of things...
 
We opened the box and I must admit I love the smell of new prams its kind of like a new car smell, the plastic of the rain cover etc.... am I weird? (don't answer that) So this is what's in the box.....
 
 

A foot muff, rain cover, front and rear wheels, car seat adapters and of course that all important instructions! The wheels were extremely simple to click in, no man required me and Alex managed it all on our own! (team work)

TaDa!!! See we did it!

 
So some info on this little beauty....

Practical little buggy can be used from birth with a Maxi-Cosi car seat.
Compact and lightweight see this freestanding fold...... It has an automatic lock system so no fiddling with clips to secure the fold.
 
Reclines to lie-flat position for younger babies
 

Large sun canopy, rain cover and easy to access large shopping basket, its easy to steer, has swivel wheels can be locked for a smooth drive or over bumpy surfaces.
Here's my little lady with that rain cover attached and its not an awkward to put on :)
 
So far we've only used the Maxi Cosi Mila a handful of times but I must say I really love it, being a tall mummy 5ft 10" I found the handle bars to be at a good height, the manoeuvrability is great and I love the coloured chassis. I haven't spotted anyone else with the same pram which is always a bonus. The fold is smaller than other umbrella strollers I've had as the front wheels slide back into the chassis... pretty nifty I thought. Alexandra seems really comfortable in it and the foot muff is lovely and warm.
The Mila is available in a range of colours with different coloured chassis. head over to Maxi Cosi to have a peep. 
 
*Please note I was not paid by Maxi Cosi for this review the Mila and neither did I receive this product from them, this view is entirely my own*
