    Default Pram/capsule combo

    Hi! Looking for some advice on some pram-car seat/capsule combos. The more prams I look at, the more confused I am. So I'm just wondering what everyone has bought, and if you're happy with it. I'm thinking I'd like the ones that clip out of the pram and into the car, but am open to anything at the moment.
    Thanks 😊

    it's only worth getting a capsule if you can put it to pram :-)
    I got the steelcraft agile plus and steelcraft capsule loved loved loved it dd3 was in there for 9.5 months and easy could have a gotten longer.

    I loved being able to transfer her from car to pram or pram to car or just taking her inside without waking her

    I got the Steelcraft Strider Compact & I love it! I had to buy the capsule separately but it's been completely worth it. My dd is 4.5 months old & I love being able to put the capsule straight into the pram/ car without waking her. For us she goes to sleep most times in car so it works great. It's also good when going to friends houses for the same reason too. I believe there are many good ones out there.

    I'd recommend going to the baby shops & trying them all out. Pick the capsules/prams up to see how heavy they are & how the prams fold up.

    Mine was on clearance (I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say on here where from) as I opted for the forrest green colour. So the pram plus capsule I think was just under $700 for both. I really wanted the teal coloured one but there was quite a price difference & I love the light green.The actual pram is fantastic though but the capsule has been so handy.

    I'm thinking about renting one, or maybe rent the capsule and buy a second hand pram that fits it... Happy to provide info if anyone wants, seems to be much cheaper than buying seeing as bubs will only be in it for about 6 months.

    Redsbaby is great and compatible wth the maxi cosi capsule which you can rent. If bubba is big you'll only get about 4-5 mths out of a capsule. Still worth having for all the times you can avoid waking them, but better hired than bought imho.
