The best purchase for my newborn!!

I was unsure if I should get a capsule or not and so happy I did! I could transfer my baby in and out of the car while she slept saving me to much time and stress! The Britax safe n sound was so easy to install! I installed it so fast in other peoples cars if I was ever swapping cars and no hassle at all! My baby is now 8 months and only just growing out of it! 100% recommend to all parents! Show details ·  1

Excellent capsule

Best decision was buying this capsule. I shopped around and tried many different types before settling with this one. Excellent quality, easy to install, excellent size. Capsule is also compatible with my Redsbaby pram. Show details ·  1

Difficult and costly to get replacement accessories

For a $350 capsule it is extremely disappointing that Britax will not sell me a replacement canopy, unless I buy a whole new cover set for $151. Frankly I just don’t have that kind of money sitting around to replace a whole set of covers that I don’t need. I have just purchased the infant carrier sunshade that britax markets as a ‘universal’ sunshade, but it is useless without the canopy. For a large company I feel that this is unacceptable and I would have expected better customer support from a better ad like Britax Show details

Fits a smaller car

We bought this capsule because it was the smallest we could find. It works well with our car.
We also wanted to buy a compatible stroller that wouldn't require any special adapters but its hard to find reliable information. The website just states "This capsule is suitable for use with all Click & Go™ compatible Strollers (no receivers required)". What are the compatible strollers? Show details ·  2

Not impressed unfortunately

I personally don’t see how this capsule is suitable for newborns/premmies. There is so much room around my babies head, it is not well supported at all. It really should have another insert to support a newborns head. I can’t say I’m overly impressed, sadly.

Unsafe for newborn: too upright

Purchased this capsule to ensure we had the most current and safe capsule for our newborn. The lack of recline makes our sons head flop forward, which comprises his airway. We have reclined the base as instructed but does not fix the issue. After spending time in the capsule my son started frothing at the mouth. We own other Britax Seats and love them but not happy at all with this purchase due to the safety risk with lack of recline and unsuitability for a newborn. Show details

Absolutely perfect for our needs

We bought this capsule as it is was compatible with our pram we purchased and we have been so happy with it.
Suits our needs perfectly, our bubs who is 9 weeks old always looks so comfortable in it, almost always falling asleep in it as soon as we start driving.
Easy to bring in and out of the car.
Super easy to clean if baby has a little vomit. We were able to remove all fabric parts of the seat, pop in the was for a clean and then easily put back together.
Great quality, you won't be disappointed. Show details ·  1

Bub loves it!

Bub’s really comfortable with it. I could tell he’s so happy when using it as he can fall asleep. We usually use it when roaming around with the pram too. The fabric is not that good though, I just need to remove the lints every now and then. Otherwise, great choice! Show details ·  1

Hi
I have a Britax Unity NEOS capsule and a bugaboo chameleon 3 pram. Is there an adapter for these two products?

Is a Britax Unity the same as a Britax Romer?

Hi Jessie, Thank you for contacting us, the Unity Infant Carrier is not compatible with this stroller and does not have adaptors for this.
