    I never used a capsule for 1,2 or 3, but by the time 4 came around I was doing school runs etc and found it great. Will be using one again, I onky think they are really useful if they can go in your pram though.

    I used a convertible carseat, and if buns was asleep, I would just unclip it and tasks the whole caraway out (buns and all).

    Best investment we have made for dd2 is our maxi cosi capsule that clicks into our bjcs pram.

    People actually stop me at the shops to ask about it.

    Both mum and mil have commented how they wish they had similar products when their kids were babies.

    My pead wasn't concerned about bubs positioning in it. It's actually optimal for her given that she has reflux, it keeps her in a seated position and has a removable head support.

    I had no trouble with ds in the convertible car seat (he was #1), but when dd came along I thought we'd try a capsule, but I couldn't lift it. I couldn't even get the silly thing out of the car as it was far too heavy for me (mind you, dd was 4.4kg at birth, so that definitely didn't help). Maybe if dd had been 2kg at birth and didn't gain heaps of weight fast, it might have been different.

    So, we had a capsule for 3 months for dd (we hired it) and it was in dh's car (I had the convertible seat in my car). I liked the ease of transfer with the capsule as long as my dh was around to do it. It was great for a family wedding for example when our dd was 6 weeks old. But, especially with bub #1 you don't need to worry about outings quite so much. With #2 for us, it was more tricky as ds was at kinder 5 days a week by then so it was lots of trips out, but I managed fine with the convertible seat in my car.

    I was looking at the maxi cosi as it seems to be the easiest and the lightest

    I know capsules aren't the easiest to get in and out of the car, but honestly it was the beat money we ever spent! I attribute so much of my ability to get out and about in the early days to te capsule - sounds ridiculous, but I could get DD ready fed dressed and in the capsule, get myself ready and head out the door. Taking her in and out of the car was easy as I didn't wake her up et. Only downside was it didn't clip into my pram which would have been much easier

    I love my capsule, I really don't find it a pain to get in & out of the car. The only problem is it's heavy but I made sure I got one that clips into my pram best money spent dd3 is 3 months and still has a while before she will out grow it .

    I found dd3 will get a good morning sleep in it so I can so my shopping or errands done

    I agree I dont find it difficult at all, its really simple to clip in in yhe car abd yea its heavy but my DS3 is 7kg and almost 5 months old and still has a decent amount of room left, we'll definitely make it to 6 months in the capsule I am going to be so sad when we cant use it anymore.

    I loved using a capsule for all three of my kids. Best purchase ever. Was able to click it into a pram, and not disturb bub. I didn't find it heavy at all. My youngest was still in the capsule till 11 months because she was tiny. Definitely getting a new capsule/travel system for #4

    Love my capsule! We didn't have it to begin with but got it about 4wo. My daughter still has room to grow now at 4mo so I can see her being able to fit up to 6 months. Ours clips into the pram so we can take her about with it and she's so comfy and snug she sleeps so well. She'd only be in it 2-3 hours at a time since she needs feeding or nappy changes anyway!
