Free 6-month Baby Capsule Hire

As part of our commitment to injury prevention in children, we are offering parents free 6-month hire of a Unity baby capsule; the only capsule for low birth weight babies that meets Australian Standards.

The Unity baby capsules can be hired free of charge with a $60 refundable security deposit. We’ll fit the capsule for you, train you on how to use it, and follow up with monthly support emails to help you through the different stages of baby’s development.

UPDATE JUNE 2021: Due to overwhelming demand, Bringing Baby Home Safely Unity baby capsule free hires are in very limited supply. For this reason we are now prioritising families with low birth weight babies and invite you to phone 3854 1829 so that we can fast-track your request.

If a free capsule hire is unavailable, we have other fee-for-service options.

Peace of mind from the very first trip

The drive home from hospital with a newborn is perhaps the longest journey you’ll ever take and with a low birth weight baby it is even more stressful. 

At Kidsafe Queensland, we can help put your mind at rest. We expertly fit the safest car seats and baby capsules available. We can also teach you all the tips and tricks, making sure you know how to get baby in and out safely.

What’s the best car seat or baby capsule to buy?

With so many child car seats and baby capsules available, it’s not easy to know which will be the right one for your long term needs. We recommend hiring a baby capsule for the first 6 months. This gives you some breathing space before you invest in your own baby capsule or car seat. It’s also a great solution for new parents or those juggling multiple car seats in the same vehicle.
