Cosatto state it is suitable for use from 6 months however as it has 3 recline positions including lay flat I have been able to use it comfortably with Harry (10 weeks) already – I do use with a separate newborn wedge inserted which I purchased separately elsewhere however as it isn’t entirely lay flat.
The seat is light weight 2.51kg making it very easy to lift on and off of the chassis and can be used in parent and world facing modes. It comes with a cosy toes with is reversible in a 4 way option so you can easily change the look of this pushchair to suit your mood.
The seat unit can be reclined using the large Green press buttons on the side, you need to press both in at the same time and then recline or sit up again by pressing or pulling the frame, this can be tricky the first few times and you need to use both hands to do this
It attaches onto the chassis in the same way the carrycot does, by clipping it into the long posts located on the side of the frame. To remove again you press in the buttons located under the Green ones used to recline – these are rather small so takes some getting used to and some practise.
I have been using the seat unit in parent facing mode with Harry in the fully reclined position and he seems to really like it – he keeps staring at the tree design of the hood and seems very comfortable. The padded chest pads stop the straps from rubbing on his neck and he has plenty of room (well I should hope so as he is only 10 weeks old).
The cosy toes makes it very padded and comfy for him however he is yet to fall asleep in it as he is too busy staring at the trees on the patterned hood.
He hood is large although wouldn’t be great in a heavy shower without the rain cover as doesn’t pull fully down. It can be put up and taken down almost silently so should he fall asleep it wouldn’t wake him up.
I have a problem with the seat when it comes to using with my daughter who is 2 years and 10 months, so not yet able to walk everywhere. The seat is narrow and not very deep so it will not accommodate Emmy comfortably.
