We are looking at buying a Baby Jogger City Select and just hiring a capsule to go with it, instead of buying one – has anyone done this? How did you find it? We were originally thinking of buying the Safe’n’Sound unity capsule, to get a year’s use out of it, but have heard the adapter attachment for the pram is really fiddly, so thinking of getting the Maxi-Casi Mico AP capsule now, and just hiring it as it will last 6 months or less. Would appreciate any advice, thanks.

  • I can’t talk to this particular model, but we did hire a capsule for each of our babies, from Kidsafe. It was a great solution.

  • We hired a baby capsule for our second. It’s good in that it’s a cheaper option then buying something you only use for a couple of months.

  • We hired the baby capsule. I think it’s more affordable that way as it’s used for such a short time. Unless it’s your first baby and you’re planning on a few more, then buying one would be a good idea. It will get lots of use with a few kids

  • If you are planning on having another baby why not buy a convertable babyseat that you can use from birth to about 4 years old and buy a reasonably priced good stroller??
    I am not sure how much it costs to hire a capsule but if you are planning to have naother baby it may be more expensive than buying one. It depends on your circumstances.
    How big are the wheels on the joggler select? Unless you need big wheels for a specific reason I personally would not choose one with them. If they are too big they will take a lot of room in your boot and you will literally packing baby gear, shopping etc. around it. Been there, done that !!!!! Good luck making the right decision especially if you have a small car or medium size with a small boot.
