How to choose the right adapters for your stroller

Firstly, what is a car seat adapter? A car seat adapter is a pair of plastic pieces that attach to your pram to allow you to click in your car seat capsule. They're totally handy for short trips, like into the supermarket  or for the school pick up. If your baby falls asleep in the car you won't need to disturb them, you can just lift the capsule from your car into the pram.

 

How to choose the right adapter?

Usually the brand that makes your stroller will also make a car seat adapter. For example, a Bugaboo pram would require a bugaboo adapter.

The bottom part of the adapter is specific to the make and model of your pram. The image below illustrates Maxi-Cosi adapters for different pram models.

 

 

The top part of the adapter is specific to the capsule brand. In the image below you can see some of the adapters that are available for the Bugaboo Fox.

Most stroller brands make adapters to fit their strollers. So you'll purchase the brand of adapters to suit your stroller, and your capsule. For example for a Bugaboo stroller you'll purchase bugaboo branded adapters. 

Maxi-Cosi Adapters

Many car seat brands use the Maxi-Cosi system. So your Maxi-Cosi adapters will fit a range of capsules, not just Maxi-Cosi ones.

 

These capsules will fit using Maxi-Cosi Adapters:

  • Maxi-Cosi
  • Nuna
  • Cybex
  • Mountain Buggy
  • Phil & Teds

We hope that has made things a little clearer! We know that all this stuff can be a bit confusing at the start! 

Adapters are handy for short trips, for longer trips we would recommend that you put baby into their carry cot, as it is not recommended that babies stay in their capsules for extended periods of time.

One problem that some parents will face at one time or another is how to stop their child from unbuckling their own seat belt. It can be a problem for children who are sitting in a booster seat that uses the cars three point seat belt. There are products on the market that will slide over the buckle so that the child can't press the button, kind of making them kiddy proof.
