Getting out and about with a baby is a new experience, and with the right tools up your sleeve it can be fun. Babies, particularly newborns, are asleep for a large part of their day. So if you want the freedom to get out and about while your baby sleeps, a travel system may be the way to go.
What is a travel system?
A travel system combines a pram with a car capsule; a two-in-one system that’s convenient and easy to use, to allow you to transition seamlessly from car to pram, and keep your baby comfortable and asleep. The rear-facing capsule comes with a base for the car seat to clip into, and is easily attached to the frame of the pram using adaptors. Rather than taking the baby out of the capsule and transferring to the pram, you simply lift the capsule out of the car, and clip it onto the pram frame, creating a convenient travel system that makes being out and about with your new baby easier.
The benefits of using a travel system
There are many benefits to using a travel system, rather than an independent car seat and pram combination.
A travel system provides an easy and convenient way of transferring your baby from car to pram, without having to unbuckle or wake them. Simply unfold the pram, unclip the capsule from the car base, and clip it into the pram frame, using the appropriate adaptors.
Manoeuvring a baby (particularly a newborn) into their car seat can be tricky, so Redsbaby have implemented this travel system to assist with keeping your child safe and comfortable while you transfer them in and out of the car.
- Cost effective
A cost effect way of using a travel system is to buy a pram and baby capsule bundle, or to hire a car capsule separately. Most car capsules can be used from newborn until 6 months of age, then your baby can be transitioned to a forward-facing car seat. The Britax Unity NEOS capsule is longer lasting, and can be used up to 12 months. We recommend referring to your local road safety authority for child car restraint regulations.
