Why a pram capsule is a baby essential

If you have a newborn, you’ll know the beauty of a sleeping baby who has managed to catch some much-needed rest. The last thing you want to do is wake them up when moving them from pram to car or back again. Enter the baby capsule. These super convenient baby carriers allow you to transport your sleeping bundle of joy from the pram into the car with minimal disturbance. Click your capsule into the pram using adaptors to go strolling, detach it when needed and click it straight into the car seat using a permanently fixed ISOFIX base. Travelling with little ones has never been easier or more stress-free!

Things to consider when buying a pram capsule

Safety is number one when it comes to choosing the right pram capsule. Consider:

  • Size of the car - Do you have a small car or a large car? How many children will you need to accommodate in the car?
  • Installation - Does your car already have an ISOFIX anchorage point in it or will you need to use the seatbelt with a tether strap connected to an anchorage point?
  • Compatibility - Is your pram capsule compatible with your brand of pram and adaptors? UPPAbaby and Baby Jogger City prams are compatible with some Maxi Cosi capsules.
  • Weight - Make sure that your carrier can be easily lifted with a baby inside. Most of our pram capsules weight around 4.5-5kg without a baby.
  • Cleaning - Babies make a lot of mess! Consider using car seat protectors and pram liners to protect your surfaces and keep babies comfy.

Fitting a capsule into your car

Infant capsules should always be installed using the manufacturer instructions that come with your product. This ensures that they will be correctly fitted according to the specific brand and type of pram capsule. Baby capsules must be held in place using either an ISOFIX base or the seatbelt with the tether strap being attached to an anchorage point, not a luggage point. You can view installation views for the Mico 12 LX and Cybex Cloud Q pram capsules on our website.

What is a pram capsule?

A pram capsule is a convertible car seat for newborns that lets you take your sleeping baby from pram to car and back again without disturbing them. With the right adaptors, pram capsules can be lifted out of the pram and fitted into the car seat using a carry handle to take you both to the next destination. When you arrive, simply detach the capsule from the car and place it back into the pram to easily transport your little one wherever you go.

What is the difference between a capsule and a car seat?

Pram capsules are an all in one travel system that can be used as both a pram and a car seat. They help you to move newborns up to 12 months of age from pram to car and back using the same baby carrier so as not to wake them when they’re sleeping. Capsules for prams use adapters to convert them into detachable car seats that are always rear-facing. A convertible car seat is permanently attached to the car and can be forward-facing or rearward-facing. These car seats can be used up to 4 years of age and grow with your child.
