Good convenient baby capsule

published

We've had our KeyFit Plus for 7 months now, and our baby still fits into it as she is quite small. I agree that it can be quite hot for baby in summer, however I think this is balanced by the fact that the capsule is extremely safe (scoring highest CREPS score of any capsule) and convenient. It clips seemlessly with the Bugaboo Cameleon adaptor (which we found on Gumtree) and makes travelling with a sleeping baby a breeze. Only criticism is the sun guard is not very protective and capsule with a 7kg baby is quite heavy, but I think these are hard things to overcome in design.

Pretty great car seat/ stroller combo

published

The capsule makes me feel secure because it feels solid and hardy, but if you try carrying it on its own it can be a struggle. Compatible with a VW Scirocco, all in all we felt it was quite convenient to be able to just pop the capsule into the wheeled section and go! Our little guy did seem to be a bit warm in it, but didn't bother us too much.

Convenient, great customer service, but baby gets hot

published

Capsule is on the heavy side, but when paired with a stroller it's great to move bub easily from car to shops to car without waking him. It clicks easily in and out of the capsule base and stroller adapter on my babyjogger. We live in the tropics and have found our baby gets very hot and uncomfortable in this capsule, even with the insert removed, and as others have suggested the sun shade is a little on the short side. I love the rocking feature, and it fits snugly behind the passenger seat of our Mazda 3. When leaving the hospital with our capsule we discovered the shoulder straps were different lengths - however cannot fault Chicco for their customer service and issue was dealt with promptly.

Great convenient car seat!

published

My son is 3.5 months now and we've found the car seat so handy and easy to clip in and out of the car and into ou bugaboo stroller. My son seems comfortable in the seat. Only two downfalls I have is the sun shade isn't long enough even with the hidden but underneath which you can pull out. I've put out bugaboo sun canopy over it though and it fits perfect.
Second downfall is it only attaches to the base and won't go into the car without the base which isn't to bad if you are using one car but for example we are going on holiday and taking our car seat but we have to take the base too which is annoying as the base is a bit bulky.

Will this car seat fit in a Mazda 3?

Yes. Although the seat may need to be push forward to allow room. I think most capsules are like that though
