The Cybex Cloud Q Car Seat is one of the latest group of car seats with state-of-the-art safety features that allow the seat to fully recline. With the semi-upright position imposed by regular baby car seats not being the best position for your babies, this allows you to lie them flat whilst you are out. This car seat still requires the baby to be in a semi-upright position in the car, but you can immediately change the position without disturbing baby, when you take the seat out of the car.
Cybex make two Cloud Q car seats that lie flat. The Cloud Q and the Cloud Q Pro. I think the Cloud Q is probably a waste of time as the Cloud Q Pro is slightly larger and so will last longer, always a good idea with twins or triplets! I didn’t get the chance to use this with my triplets, but it makes perfect sense, that you can lay them flat, the best position for muscle and nerve development, when you’re out and about. Take care when choosing the chassis so you get one that will fit the car seat. This is a little more complicated for us triplet moms, but for twins, there are twin chassis that will fit these seats.
The Trippy Triple Stroller that I feature on my website will support these car seats. You require adapters but theyre all easily available.

This car seat is awesome in that once you have completed your journey you can lie your babies flat and the following chassis are compatible wit this car seat:
- UPPAbaby Vista
- All Bugaboo stroller models
- Baby Jogger City Mini and City Mini GT
- Cybex Priam
This is an amazing car seat and the fact you can move your babies in and out of the car, and lie flat without waking them up is a huge advantage. The disadvantage…. the price…. it is expensive but Cybex are well known for their high quality, precision products for babies.
