    Photos: Newborn in Coccoro

    Thought I'd share a couple photos of my baby in a Coccoro.

    First, here she is at 2 weeks, 8 lbs:



    Sorry the photo is sort of awful--I took it with my phone.

    Here she is at 5 weeks, 12 lbs:





    Maybe it's the novelty of it (we've only used it on one outing so far), but I really like this seat. My only complaint is that I really have to make sure the straps don't slide off her shoulders while I'm tightening them.

    I'm thinking of moving the seat from our backup car into my primary.

    She is precious! Do you find it annoying to maneuver her around the shoulder belt that is routed behind the seat? I really like the looks of the seat, but i'm wondering how much that would bother me.

    I know! And she's actually SIX weeks now! (The photos are from a few days ago.)

    No, it's not really a problem, because there's enough slack in the belt that I can sort of push it down and out of the way without it locking. That won't necessarily be the case in all cars, though.

    I have also tried lifting her over it and scooting her under it, and both are fine.

    If she were in the center, it also wouldn't be a problem because I could just load her from the other side, but I have DS there.

    That's installed in a Pilot, where I have to lift her up a little anyway. I'm hoping to put it in our Prius tomorrow, and I suspect I'll be able to just set her down over the belt in that, since the car is a lot lower.

    Like I said, I haven't used the seat much, so at some point it might get annoying. If it does, I'll either just deal with it or use the routing that doesn't put the belt around the back.

    So cute! I love that she is sleeping in all the pictures! That speaks volumes to me about the comfort of the seat. DS did nothing but cry in his SnugRide and DD was much happier in her KeyFit, but the padding in the Cocorro is like a cocoon!

    I love that seat. Maybe I should convince DH to let me buy it.

    Thanks for all the compliments

    I just wanted to add that I installed in the Prius today, and getting her in and out was a breeze! As I suspected, the seatbelt was completely irrelevant to the process since I could just plop her down into the seat.

    OP- what a precious little one Looks great in that seat!

    Hey- do you happen to have a Nautilus that you could try installing next to the coccoro for me? If not that's fine, just trying to figure out what I'm gonna do when this baby gets here!!

    That's a Nautilus next to it in the third pic. That's in the Pilot, so there's a ton of side-to-side room, but I imagine it would fit nicely next to it in pretty much anything. It's next to the Regent in our Prius.
