Review | Cosatto Hug Carseat

Todays post is a review of the Go Lightly Hug Carseat from Cosatto. Cosatto are my favourite brand when it comes to pushchairs & car seats, with their stunning designs and funky patterns, they have very quickly become one of the most popular brands in the country! Their slogan 'Baby Stuff with Personality' is exactly what they provide, we are lucky enough to be Brand Buddy's for them and have enjoyed testing out a range of other products too! They are below :)



My first thought of the car seat was the size of it, it is pretty big, but when you ask someone for a hug no-one wants a little one, it's gotta be big!! :) We are used to our Mamas and Papas which is probably half the size, with that in mind Cosatto have described it as a 'big teddy bear with tough guy credentials' and I couldn't agree more, with comfort and style as well as supreme safety and a gorgeous pattern, it's everything you could need in a car seat! The Hug is suitable from 9 months right through to 11 years so despite the fact it's a little on the pricier side, it will be the only car seat you will need until they grow out of it!

"The squishy tummy and chest pads will keep precious passengers snug and safe on every journey. With luxury fabrics, piping and leatherette details Hug is a premium quality plush car seat"

I think the Golightly design is my favourite, it's modern and girly without being over the top, it can grow with Abbie and stay in 'style' throughout the years too! Abbie absolutely loves this car seat, she kept trying to strap herself in before we'd even adjusted the straps, I think she just loves a good ol trip in the car! But seeing her in it looking comfortable and secure is a big thing off my shoulders :)

Installing
We did have a few problems getting it into the car properly, we had a Mamas & Papas one before which we've been used to taking out and putting back in, we assumed all car seats were the same, how wrong we were ha ha. We followed the instructions and through a bit of fiddling we finally got the hang of it, it did take about 30 minutes to get everything in and secure properly but thats a small price to pay for ensuring it is perfectly installed!








































































































You can buy your very own Hug carseat for £220 either online with Cosatto or from one of their national partners listed on the website! Cosatto have lots of other fab and funky designs to choose from, including the new A/W collection you don't want to miss! My 2 favourites are the Kimono Ooba & Orange Squash 3sixti Highchair!
