The Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 rear-faces from 4-40 lbs. and less than 40”, then converts to a forward-facing convertible for 22-70 lbs. and 34-43”. Because it encompasses such a large range of sizes, the Pria has a bit of a learning curve to it.

The Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 is a relatively complicated convertible that will take some time and instruction manual reading to make sure everything is set up correctly. That’s not to say it’s a bad seat by any means; simply make sure the TinyFit is installed correctly when you’re using it. The TinyFit system is a completely different way of addressing the “tiny baby in a convertible” dilemma and it’s pretty daring when you consider how conservative carseat manufacturers tend to be. It’s a great seat for baby-wearers and takes away the need for an infant seat that will fit small babies. And the deep seat pan will give needed legroom for larger rear-facers.
