I am due to have my first baby in June and was wondering if anyone could help me decide between buying a baby capsule that seems to be practical but only lasts for six months use, or whether to get a car seat which they can use until about 4 years of age
What have you found to be the best option, both money wise and practicality?
Thanks for any advice(:
Don't know much between the two really, but I guess you'd have to weigh up the cost factor. It does depend a bit on the size of the baby. My DS is a small baby, so weight wise he could have still fit into the a baby capsule up to about 10 months of age. But if he was a big baby, he may have had to have been out within 4-5 months (if big like some of my nieces and nephews.
With some baby capsules (don't know if all or just some) they clip in and out so you can take your baby in and out of the car asleep without disturing him/her which can be a pretty good benefit.
Some baby capsules can go with a certain pram/stroller and so can clip in and out of the car then into the pram and can often make life a bit easier without waking up your baby.
Myself, we got the combined carseat that reverses around.
There are different places where you could hire a baby capsule so that could help with costs.
Sorry, not much help. Good luck deciding and congratulations on your pregnancy.
