    But yes, those car to pram capsules. So pretty much people use them then use the carseat to RF as long as possible (honestly, my DS screamed anyway so no point having a capsule. It was easier to calm him down just taking him out and holding him - seeming as he hated the pram as well).
    Speaking from people I know, most of us used our capsules until around 15+ months (friends with smaller girls used them longer) and then would vary and if they bought a forward facing seat or an EXR after. The new law is rearfacing until minimum 15 months so I definitely have friends who bought FF after that but many who chose ERF seats similar to mine as well.

    I thought the point that Sonja was making about having 3 kids under 4 was how would you have all 3 seats rear facing if older children sit frog legged whilst rear facing.

    Not being snarky at all just curious

    Are you asking how do they sit frogged leg? Or that it's not possible with three seats? I thought her point was more about the expense?

    Sorry I'm spinning on my own tangent - but that's what I'm asking - if you had 3 car seats across the back seat, how could you do ERF?

    Default Petition to keep babies safe

    The same way you do 3 forward facing? I'm not sure it'd be any different?

    if you google image there are loads of examples☺️

    But also, ERF until 4 is the absolute ideal but many countries say until 2 and the petition was until 12 months, so in regards to this specific petition or other countries it wouldn't be a problem.

    Unfortunately it all depends on your definition of 'affordable'. I personally wouldn't buy a babylove seat, and the next cheapest is apparently $330, after that $400. The rest are $500 and above, according to the chart someone posted earlier, so only 3 seats can get you change from $500. Once places like big w and target and Kmart stock safe n sound and infasecure seats that are extended rear facing at a regular price of under $200, then I would have no problem saying they're affordable. I have 4 perfectly good seats that are a2, and would love to buy an a4 seat for the baby due later this year, but I'm not prepared to pay those prices, and I hope they come down in the next 12 months cos it's likely it will outgrow the markers before 12 months like big sister. I fully support extended rear facing, but i notice a lot of mums try to buy for under $200, and don't really consider safety, just ease of use, and wether it will fit in their car!

    @twinklify this is DS at 14 months in his capsule. There's a photo pinpointing the time because it was a rare moment of him falling asleep in it! 😂

    Still very rare for me! I think I have photos from every time it has happened, probably only 5! 😂

    Eta: besides when he was very very brand new, I think this is the only time he ever slept in that thing!

    Out of interest why don't you like Babylove?
