Hi Gurus - I need some advice please original.gif

We had a SNS Capsule for #1 (6 years ago) and found it only fit in our Mazda 3 (06 model) in the centre.  It didn't fit well at all and touched/rested on the tops of the front seats.  FF no problems.

Fast forward to TTC#2 and we're wondering if there are any shallower capsules on the market that don't take up as much room as we'll have a booster for DD#1 and only the room behind the passenger seat for #2.

*grins* Maybe I should be looking at a new car wink.gif

We've got a Chicco keyfit capsule in our Mazda 3 (06 too I believe). I'm always in the passenger seat and there's room for me at 172cm tall without the seat touching the capsule behind.

We have an 09 Mazda 3 and we are buying a new car when we need a new baby rearfacing. It's a pain in the bum.

Babylove Snap n Go is one of the most compact and allowed our front seat back further than any other capsules I tried. It also has a pram that it goes on, super convenient. I hired the system and I love it.

I think it's he NRMA site that has measurements for leg room for the front seat passenger when a seat or capsule is behind.

We had a Mazda 6 and my husband, Dad or brother couldn't sit in the front seat without their knees touching the glovebox.

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
