Carseats & Strollers: Finding The Dream Duo

The struggle. Oh, the struggle of a) finding the perfect car seat in today’s onslaught of choice and b) actually getting your child to sit in said car seat without a major tantrum, probably ranks as one of the most stressful experiences… EVER. Are we right, mamas?!

Then you have the stroller compatibility debacle, which can be equally as traumatic. Well, fear not! To help ease your anxiety in finding the perfect combo for you and your child, we have done the hard work for you and listed our top 5 car seats along with their compatible strollers



1. Maxi-cosi (Pebble, Pebble Plus & Cabrio Fix)

If Maxi-Cosi were a contestant in a beauty pageant, it would’ve already won the Miss Congeniality special award. Seriously, it’s that good. Touted as one of the most versatile car seats around, it can be paired with multiple stroller brands and models including (deep breath…) the Quinny Q Moodd, Quinny Zapp, Quinny Buzz, Mima Xari, and BabyZen Yoyo.

Rated as the top choice among parents – thanks to its optimum safety and comfort features- it can be installed with ISOFIX or with a car seat belt. Now that’s what we call a perfect all-rounder!

2. Chicco Keyfit 30

Chicco Keyfit 30 is the #1-rated infant car seat in America, thanks to its easy installation and safety features. Their ‘ReclineSure Leveling Foot’ adjusts to fit the vehicle seat angle and has an indicator which lets you know if you have installed it properly, is genius. Frequent travellers would also be well served with this car seat, as it conforms with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and the FAA also gave their seal of approval for it to be used on aircrafts.

As for the stroller compatibility, it can easily go with Chicco Bravo®, Urban™, Activ3®, TRE®, Neuvo®, Liteway® Plus, KeyFit® Caddy, Cortina®, Cortina® Magic and Cortina® Together Strollers. It’s like hitting the jackpot, right?

3. Besafe iZi Go

Rear-facing car seats are said to be 5 x safer than front-facing, and this is one of the considerations that BeSafe focused on when they created iZi Go. Aside from safety, they also took note of the fact that parents would need to carry the car seat around, so they designed the handle ergonomically. It also has a built-in sun canopy to provide shade to your little bundle of joy!

If ever there was a brand to challenge Maxi-Cosi for the compatibility title, then this one comes mighty close with several model options including Baby Jogger (City Mini, and City Select), BabyZen Yoyo+, Cybex Priam, Mima Xari, and Quinny Buzz. So, if you hit the roads often and want to turn some heads, The BeSafe iZi Go is a very respectable option indeed!

4. Graco Snugfix

If you’re a Graco fan, then this one’s for you! Snugfix has been designed to be your baby’s best friend, accompanying them from their first journey at birth, all the way through to 15 months. Compatiable with the Graco Evo and Evo XT Strollers, this car seat also has a brilliant safety addition of deep side wings that offers superior side impact protection.

5. Hauck Zero Plus

Car rides in the UAE can be pretty exhausting for your baby, especially when you consider how hot it can get during the summer months. With this in mind, we’ve included the Hauck Zero Plus as one of our top picks, as it truly is a car seat for all seasons. Thanks to clever interchangeable lining fabrics, you can keep your child calm and cool during the summer months and warm and cozy once winter sets in.

Zero Plus is also compatible with Hauck Malibu, Condor, and Eagle making it a firm favourite for mamas who like flexibility in their car seat.

‘If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote ‘me too’ as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.’ You’re probably aware of the social media campaign that’s tearing its way around the world - women have encountered harassment in all forms  and suffered in silence for too long. This is the time to confront the belittlement and stand united. For ourselves, for our friends, our sisters, mothers, daughters - for anyone we know who may be suffering. #metoo

Today is International Day Of The Girl - a UN created initiative to ensure more opportunity for girls and to increase awareness of gender inequality faced by girls worldwide - including the right to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination and violence. This day is also about celebrating girls and all that females have achieved. We say a huge YES to that and to empowering girls and promoting gender equality today and everyday 💪🏻 How do you find raising girls in a world which still falls back on gender stereotypes, mamas?
