Maxi Cosi Mila Review

Maxi Cosi Mila at the Mall
Why is summer so doggone short? We wait for it all year, and then it's gone in the blink of an eye.
Um, eye, um, pun intended, heehee. But anyway, the end of summer means one big thing around here--back to school! 

 And back to school means, shopping for school clothes.

 And shopping for school clothes, in Strollerland anyway, means one thing...
What stroller do we take to the mall?      Well, got a new one for ya'. The Maxi Cosi Mila!

 Check that out!

 Want. to. push. it.
The Mila is stylish to be sure. Love how the frame matches the fabric!

 It was a great choice! Small enough to zip in and out of corners.

And the single wheels meant I didn't get hung up on clothes racks.
The seat is almost high enough to see all the sparkly things

Shopping is tiresome, whew.
But oh, the sites to see.
You can stuff an amazing amount in the basket.
   The Mila is small, but sturdy. Look how many bags I can hang off of it, and it never tipped. Whoo hoo!
 I was planning on taking it to the Museum, but the Mall has nearly as many attractions.
 Love how the colors of this "bleached denim" Mila blend right in.

The drop to the footrest is 13" long. Longer than most other strollers. Which means it is great for a leggy child.

 There is an extended leg rest, padded harness and crotch strap, and the recline is plenty for napping.
 One of the really cool things is the fold. You just pull up the triggers (which I have my bags hanging on), and yank the handle.
It then folds up, not down, like most umbrellas. So you don't have to bend down to the ground. This would be great for someone with a bad back (That is one concern of many of my clients.) And it stands alone folded.

One thing to remember when back to school shopping, or any mall shopping, is that it can take a while. All day, until the sunset. So it is really important to have a stroller that is comfy for your child.
The Maxi Cosi Mila is a sweet ride, allowing SP 2.0  to have sweet dreams.
