About the Cybex Cloud Q PLUS Infant Car Seat 2017 / 2018

Ever try to fall asleep on an airplane, or in a car or a bus? While an adult’s body is made to sit and stand upright for long periods of time, sleeping while sitting up is just tough and uncomfortable, and that goes double for babies, whose newly-minted muscles just aren’t made to sit up, even at a recline. Your infant car seat is an indispensable piece of safety equipment, but most of the time, your newborn is better off lying on her back.

The average infant car seat will always prop babies up a little, but Cybex doesn’t do average: in the Cybex Cloud Q Infant Car Seat, when you take your baby out of the car, you can recline the seat to turn it into a lie-flat carrycot! The new position is more comfortable and ergonomically correct, for proper breathing and spinal development, so your child can chill and snooze anywhere she goes.


This version, the CLOUD Q PLUS, comes with premium fabric with a twill/denim look. So stylish!

Here’s a rundown of the features on this terrific new infant car seat:

  • Lie-flat positioning: When you take your child out of the car and are carrying her car seat, or when you click it on your travel system, just pull down the backrest and footrest to create the lie-flat position.
  • Automatic height adjustment: Even in the car, the Cybex Cloud Q is designed to ferry your child along in the flattest position possible, to keep her head from tilting forward. You don’t have to do anything extra to adjust the height: it adjusts as you move the headrest! This feature was developed with the help of German medical specialists and midwives. 
  • Telescoping Linear Side Impact Protection (LSP): As with the previous Aton Q model, the Cybex Cloud Q features pop-out arms that add even more protection by transferring the first forces of an impact to the car seat’s shell, so the flexible material and structure absorb the impact and channel it away from your child.
  • Height-adjustable headrest and harness: The 11-position headrest is integrated with the harness, so when you adjust the headrest upwards, the harness automatically lengthens – no rethreading! This ensures a comfortable and safe fit and prevents misuse. The harness also features extra-wide Y-harness straps with a soft belt and crotch pad.
  • Sun canopy: The gigantic sun canopy on the Cybex Cloud Q infant car seat is both lovely and supremely practical! It provides UVP50+ sun protection that meets the stringent Australian standard, and when you don’t need it, it tucks neatly away into the color-coordinated visor.
  • Base: The Cloud Q uses a similar base to the Aton Q, with all the same terrific safety and ease-of-use features. The base can be easily installed with LATCH, with deluxe push-on lower connectors, or with a seat belt and belt tensioning plate (you can also install the Cloud Q without the base, so it’s simple for cabs, airplanes, and other travel situations). Along with all of the other amazing safety features of this seat, the base adds a load leg, which adds stability and limits rotation in the event of a collision.

With all of this high-tech innovation, it almost seems like expecting too much to expect this seat to also be as glamorous and stylish as it is! Check out the top menu for all the lovely color combos available.

The Cybex Cloud Q Infant Car Seat is designed for use with babies weighing 4 to 35 pounds, and up to 30 inches in height, and the seat itself weighs 13.9 pounds. The car seat base is included.

This car seat is well made. We recently upgraded from a Graco and to the touch you can tell this car seat is much better made. It is very heavy and my wife, still not released to lift more than 10lbs can not lift it. This seat just feels safe. We had a little trouble getting the infant pad in as it came from the factory put on upside down and backwards and the directions weren’t clear.


The base is the easiest car seat base I have ever installed but the videos of it make it look slightly easier(my orange turn handle does not automatically lock and had to be locked by hand.)


After an intense search for a better car seat than our graco that my wife hated, I don’t think we could have gotten a better one. It’s heavy but safe and gives a little extra peace of mind driving a smaller car. The car seat supports our 4 week old’s head better than every car seat we have tried. The material was better than I expected and in person is a bit darker than pictures make it seem.


We found this car seat looking for more room in our small car. The entire Cybex line was supposed to give more room, I find from front to back it is slightly longer than the Graco but side to side it does give a bit more room in the back.


The only complaint I have for this seat is it appears the carry handle may have been warped somehow and routinely grabs the canopy without manipulation and this may be due to damage via delivery or may be a problem on all, I don’t really know.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Awesome...but HEAVY

<p>Well constructed, very nice fabric, feels sturdy and safep>
<p>I love this car seat and so does my son. He has been super comfy in it since day one and the adjustable head support has fit him well and grown with him. He is a big guy (17lbs already at 3 1/2 months) and the only complaint I have is the weight of the seat. It is HEAVY! It is Nearly double the weight of the Nuna Pipa Lite (our friend has one). My wife sometimes has a hard time carrying him long distances in the seat and has to take our stroller with her to cart him around. I can lift it with him in it but it is not easy. I would give this seat 5 Stars if it was a bit lighter. The weight is not a huge issue if you don't plan on carrying it long distances often and I know it is a result of the superior build quality. I love the base with the load leg and the canopy covers him up well in just about any condition. The clips are easy to use and simple.p>

Cybex Cloud Q | Reviews | Ratings | Prices | Magic Beans

Cybex has given parents extra safety and convenience with the Cloud Q! In this video, Eli describes our favorite features of the Cybex Cloud Q:


Load leg: It’s an extra stabilization point to secure the car seat in the event of a crash.

Tensioning plate: This ensures installation and secures your LATCH connectors. Also, it’ll allow you to install a Cloud Q with just a seatbelt! This is convenient if you’d like to install it in the middle seat of a car where there is no LATCH compatibility.

LSP: Standing for Linear Side Protection, LSP prongs pop out and absorb energy for extra support in a side impact collision.

For convenience's sake: While the Cloud Q is attached to a stroller you can recline your baby! Use this instead of a bassinet so your infant is as comfy as possible


The Cybex Cloud Q is available at for free shipping!

The Cybex Cloud Q is unique among infant car seats because it’s designed to recline when you take it out of the car and snap it onto your baby stroller, putting your baby in a more comfortable and developmentally appropriate position for long walks. Because the marquee feature of this infant car seat is used only outside of the car, though, that leads to a common question: what strollers can it click onto?


In today’s video, Eli Gurock, co-owner of Magic Beans, demonstrates how the Cloud Q clicks onto almost all of our most popular strollers, including models from Bugaboo, Cybex, Baby Jogger, Nuna, Stokke, BabyZen, and more. As you’ll see in the video, aside from the Priam, you’ll need to purchase a Maxi-Cosi infant car seat adapter for all of these other stroller models.
