Carrycots which can be car seats - which is the largest/longest?

Anna • 26 Jul 2023

Hello Eli,

I would like to ask you about carrycots which can be car seats at the same time; I mean the one's like Jané Transporter 2, Nuna Cari or Maxi Cosi Jade.

Which one you recommend in the low-mid price range? Which one is the longest (best for a long baby)?

Heya, Anna,

The 2in1 carrycot + car seat models are usually not large at all. There are two exceptions - the Cam carrycots, and the Inglesina carrycots, both of which can be used in the car with an auto kit. These Italian brands make large, spacious bassinet-car seats.

From your choices, all three are very small, limited to, realistically, up to 4 to 6 months of age, depending on the season and your child's weight and size.

Personally, I would not really want such a thing btwm ,a car seat is, in any case, a safer bet, but I understand that for regular very long rides this can be an advantage that is friendly for your child's spine. Perhaps also look into car seats inclinable even during the car ride - the Kiddy Evoluna line, or the Joie i-Level car seat.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
