Unofficial baby capsule compatibility guide

Single Prams & Strollers

Wondering which capsule is compatible with your pram or stroller?

We’ve put together this handy guide to help simplify the whole process of working it out…

How to choose your capsule and pram combination

If you haven’t already chosen one, it is recommended to choose your pram before your capsule. You’ll want a pram that you love, as it will likely be your lifeline for the next two to three years depending on your lifestyle. Make sure you look for options that have a higher weight limit. Aim for at least 17-18kg. Many prams go up to 22kg+, so there are options available that will last the distance.

Once you’ve chosen your pram, you can then use our handy capsule compatibility chart to work out which baby capsules are able to be used with your chosen pram.

Now that you’ve narrowed down your available capsule options, it’s a good idea to consider things like the size of the vehicle it will be installed in, how long you’d like to use it for (some can last longer than others), or whether it needs to fit alongside other car seats.

Adapters

It is important to note that most capsules will require the use of additional adapters to attach the capsule to the pram.

When using your adapters, make sure you use the attached safety strap if one is available. Whilst your capsule may click into the adapters, it is worthwhile taking extra safety measures to keep your baby safe.

Please note: Some pram manufacturers have updated their prams, and/or discontinued some pram adapters. This means that not all adapters are available for purchase new, and some prams may not fit some older styles of adapters.

Premature and low birth weight babies

Not all capsules are suitable for transporting low birth weight or premature babies. The Britax Unity Isofix capsule is the only Australian standard baby capsule that has a low birth weight setting that has been tested with an appropriately sized crash test dummy. This capsule is the only recommend means of transporting a baby under 2.5kg, regardless of whether not it is compatible with your pram.

Current guidelines indicate that low birth weight babies should use the bassinet mode on their pram or stroller rather than a capsule when outside of the car. Small babies with fragile airways are able to maintain higher levels of oxygen saturation when flat on their back as opposed to seated at an incline (as a capsule would be when connected to a pram).
If you are in the situation where you need to transport a smaller than average baby, please get in touch for personalised advice, suited to your individual situation.

What next?

Even if you choose to use a baby capsule for the first six months of your babies life, it is still recommended that the next car seat you choose is either a 0-4 or 0-8 child car seat. These are much better suited to a child under the age of 12-18 months than a car seat advertised as suitable from 6 months+.

When moving from a capsule to a convertible car seat, most children will need the infant padding removed from the convertible car seat.  The padding may force your babies legs together if left in too long, or increase the chance of overheating. Car seat padding compresses during a car accident. Leaving it in doesn’t offer any additional safety benefit. Refer to your car seat manual for a complete overview of your child restraint.

It is recommended to try your child in any car seat you plan on purchasing.
Where do your child’s shoulders sit in relation to the height markers?
Is it age appropriate? It is recommended to rearward face until a minimum of 12 months, however, studies have shown that it is much safer to rearward face until at least 2-4 years.
