Combi Coccoro Convertible Car Seat. Click the picture to view the review.It’s safe to say we all can understand that babies grow very quickly. I know mine have! It feels like one day you’re driving home from the hospital and the next they are starting school! Having a convertible car seat can help save money by growing with your child and having a great car seat is an important step in keeping him safe. This is why I was so excited to test out the NEW Combi Coccoro Convertible Car Seat!

The Coccoro car seat currently comes in 5 gorgeous colors which include: Cherry Pie, Chestnut, Grape, Key Lime, and Licorice. I received the brand new Grape color for my review (and for a giveaway–see below!) While many will see a purple car seat as only for girls, I feel it is a great neutral color. In fact, purple is my husband’s favorite color! You can see how adorable my little man looks in his seat.

Combi Coccoro Car Seat Chest ClipWhat I Love

There is so much that I love about this car seat. For starters, I would have to say that I love its safety features. A few of these features are:

  • Rear-facing tether
  • SafeGuard® LATCH connectors
  • Tru-Safe® Side Impact Protection (SIP)
  • Rear-facing and forward-facing lock-offs
  • Single-pull adjustable 5-point harness with padding
  • Tru-Safe® Buckle

To explain a few of these, I will give you a quick overview.

The rear-facing tether is a nifty strap that comes off the top of the car seat and connects to something metal in your vehicle to better stabilize the seat (opposed to hooking ONLY the base of the seat to the car’s latch hooks–most car seats do not come with this added safety feature!) 

This seat has deep side walls and a layer of energy-absorbing foam making up its side impact protection. The foam is made to help safeguard your child’s head, neck, and spine by distributing the force of impact away from your little one.

I really love though, the Tru-Safe® Buckle! It has an indicator that changes colors so you know the harness completely buckled to the base and the straps won’t just pop out! Red means stop and fix that buckle; green means you’re good to go!

Combi Coccoro Car Seat Red Means Stop Combi Coccoro Car Seat Buckle Green Means GoAnother thing I love about the Combi Coccoro is that it has a washable cover (just the cover–it is NOT safe to wash the seat belts as it weakens them) that is easily removed for cleaning. This is perfect for those of us who have a very messy baby! 

The removable infant insert that comes with is important for smaller babies, helping them sit properly and comfortably in their seats. My son is still under the weight requirements to have it out, so you will notice that the insert is in place in his seat. It also comes with a pillow for the head and pads for the seat belts for added comfort and protection.

Combi Coccoro Convertible Seat. Click the picture to view the review.Seriously, there are so many cool features for this car seat I have to add one more…it has a compact design that allows you to safely install THREE car seats in the rear seat of most small fuel-efficient vehicles!

Is this car seat right for your child? See the specifications below.

  • Rear-facing weight requirements = 3-33 lbs.
  • Forward-facing weight requirements = 20-40 lbs.
  • Minimum height requirement = 19″
  • Height limit = 40″

Combi Coccoro Convertible Car Seat Rear FacingWhat I’m Not Huge On

The only thing my husband and I really had a difficult time with was buckling the belts. I do not have too difficult of a problem with it, but getting our child’s arms through the loops can be a little bit of a challenge as there is not much room when the harness is set to the proper tightness.

To buckle the clip, you need to insert both sides into the latch at the same time. To me, this is added safety and it really only takes us an extra few seconds. If needed, you can always loosen and re-adjust the straps as it is very easy to loosen and tighten unlike most seats we have used. My guess is that this feature is for the color-safety feature to work. It ensures both sides are completely buckled in properly rather than one stuck in incorrectly and showing green to go.

Combi Coccoro Car Seat BuckleOverall, this seat is safe, stylish, and simple to use! I highly recommend adding this seat to your baby registry or purchasing for your little one. Learn more about the Coccoro seat HERE and check out Combi USA on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest

Bonus safety tips: 

When setting up your car seat and buckling your child in, please make sure you know about car seat safety! There is a proper way to buckle children into seats that can make all the difference into saving their lives.

Remove puffy jackets!

In cold Winter months, it is tempting to leave your child in his comfy coat and just loosen the belt straps to fit. DO NOT DO THIS! The added puffiness means there is more room for your child to slip out of the seat in the case of an accident. Instead, remove the jacket before entering the car and replace it with a thin fleece jacket or a warm blanket on your child’s lap (over the buckles.)

Winter Weather Car Seat Safety Tip. No puffy coats!There are many great resources for car seat safety, but a few include AAA, Safecar.gov, and the instruction manual itself. You can find out car seat laws HERE and, to find out where you can get a free car seat check, call (866) SEAT-CHECK or click HERE (this includes most fire stations!)

  58. My favorite feature has to be all of them !! So safe for babies

  59. I love all the features of this car seat, especially the single pull harness. I really would like to win this as I am helping a friend out who has 2 kids and a newborn and I am volunteering to babysit for her, so she can try and work. Could use the extra car seat. Thanks for the chance!

  62. I love the the way it leans back SW

  63. I like that this seat has Side Impact Protection

  64. I would like to win this seat for myself. It would be a great for grandma to have her own car seat. Now, when I watch the kids I need them to leave me a car seat or we can’t go away. If I had my own we could go away all the time.

  65. I love that it’s so narrow and fits tiny babies

  66. I just found our we are expecting again and our old seat expired, so this would be a huge blessing to win!

  67. I love the color indicators on the Tru-Safe Buckle! So often I buckle my kids into their carseats and then second-guess myself. Did I really hear the click? Did I hear both clicks? Should I unbuckle and try again? This is a WONDERFUL feature of this seat.

  77. The Tru-Safe® Buckle is pretty cool but I love that it looks padded/comfortable for long car rides. I also like that the material can be easily removed for cleaning. I suck because I never knew about the puffy jacket thing… but I live in Hawaii. This is a great give away. I have a 6 month old who needs this seat. I hate that the infant seats are only used for a short period of time. My baby was big to start with and I feel that she is already so uncomfortable in the infant carrier. I wish I would have just started with a convertible seat.

  78. I would like to win this for one of my grandsons.
