    I just gave DS's capsule to my friend. I forgot I bought his! I got it on sale at baby haggle. You can use it on so many prams and the Chico pram is often on sale also check gumtree if you don't mind second hand

    I am looking at agile plus. Debating to buy unity capsule or the steelcraft baby capsule that's specifically for agile plus, strider compact etc. They said unity might be on the heavy side?

    Unity goes till 12kg and 12mths rear facing. You would get a lot more use out of it

    I used the unity for ds until just shy of 8mths. He still had plenty of room in it but we purchased dd a new seat so moved him into the rf convertible.

    Yes, by now it was getting pretty heavy but my little monster is already 10kg so that doesn't help;-) I didn't find it too bothersome in the weight department but I wanted it specifically because for the bigger age range so I accepted that it would be a little heavier

    My friend just pointed out the CREP rating. Unity is rated pretty low. Are you ladies concern about it at all? Some capsules aren't even tested and rated.

    Can you find quote online specifically???

    I'm sorry but you sound really patronising and I'm sure you don't mean it.

    As a parent everything you do comes under scrutiny, and you will sadly be judged by other parents. From the way you birth to the way you feed your baby to the way you wean them.

    I'm going to stick to my recommendation about the unity. It's the only capsule that goes to. 12mths/12 kg. It's the best capsule for my family. We did do our research when we bought it years ago. Obviously we were happy with it and still are.

    @bbhope You don't sound patronising at all Luv IMO. You've asked a legitimate
    question. If others want to get defensive because they perceive that you're judging their choices, then that's their problem ok??

    Have a look at the "Product Safety Australia" website, "Kidsafe" and "Choice" websites. "Choice" has reviewed and rated prams/capsules etc on theirs. When you're a first time Mum (especially if you've not had a lot to do with kids/babies) it can be difficult to know what's right and what's wrong in just about every area.

    You want the best for your bub like we all do. Unfortunately, the PP is correct in saying judgement will occur at every turn for almost everything you do..including asking legitimate questions!!!

    You just do the best you can with what you know and don't worry what anyone else thinks/does ok Luv?? Find your own path and your own way is my advice

    The weight limits have been taken out of it now seats have height markers. There are now a few capsules with the same height markers as the unity - infasecure arlo is one.

    As far as CREP goes I don't really look at it. The best seat for you is the one that fits best in your car. Add this to the fact that they don't test all of them and that there testing seems odd and I'm happy to go with any seat that passes our standards - they gave a folding booster that you only need to unfold and sit on the seat 2 stars for ease of use!

    My apology if I sounded patronising. I was just wondering how accurate these ratings are. If it is a legitimate source of finding out info. The fact that they didn't test all capsules and seats is weird to me. I am just seeking recommendation.

    They don't have to test them all because to be sold in Australia they have to meet the standards - crep isn't the same. I can't remember who funds crep but basically there are so many seats they can't afford to test them all.
