Hi all
I bought one of these for no.3 and so far I really don't like it. It seems very upright and with very little head support. I've put in an extra head support and his head still flops all over the place and doesn't look safe or comfortable.

I had a borrowed capsule with no.2 that seemed to lie flatter and be more supportive.
Does anyone have one of these capsules? How do I make it better for a small baby?
All help appreciated.

I have one.

I love it though. I added the extra padding as well that helps with head support. It has the side impact protection with the foam and I just put the extra padding between that.
Have you got it adjusted for newborn size?

I liked it being a little upright as I had a reflux baby.


Here is a pic of my baby in the capsule.  original.gif
