About baby capsules

Infant car capsules

Infant car capsules are a rear-facing car seat that is able to be taken in and out of the car easily and carried by a handle.

Infant car capsules come in two standard sizes: Type A1 and Type A2. Type A1 infant car capsules are designed for babies up to a large six-month-old, whereas Type A2 infant car capsules are designed for babies up to a large 12-month-old.

The size of the infant car capsule you choose is worth weighing up in relation to what type of car seat you’re planning to move your baby into when they outgrow their capsule.

Travel systems

One of the main advantages of using an infant car capsule is the ability to use them with a compatible pram as a complete travel system. It’s extremely convenient being able to take the baby from the car into the pram without having to take them out of their seat. This means some babies might be able to continue their nap undisturbed by the transfer.

Some babies just dislike the process of being buckled and unbuckled from their car seat to their pram, so being in an infant car capsule will be less disturbing for them. Even if they’re not necessarily asleep for the transfer.

Just be aware that prams will only be compatible with a select range of capsules, and will need to be connected to the pram with capsule adapters that are sold separately. Some prams will only be paired with the same brand of the capsule.

It’s a good idea to buy your pram, infant car capsule, and the adapters to connect them together at the same time to ensure they’re all compatible.

Other features to look for

Adjustable shoulder straps: Some capsules have easily adjustable shoulder straps that simply slide up and down into position by squeezing a lever. Otherwise, you’ll need to rethread the shoulder straps to reposition them as your baby grows.

Sunshade: Having a sunshade on the capsule is especially useful when using it as the seat for your pram.

Easy installation: It’s a good idea to have your capsule professionally installed – at least for the first time, to ensure you know what it looks like when fitted correctly. However, some infant car capsules have features to make getting the perfect fit easier – look for things like:

  • Easy-to-adjust base to find the correct angle to match the shade of your back seat.
  • Built-in spirit level so you know your car capsule is sitting completely flat.
  • Isofix connector, if you have Isofix installed in your car.
