Yes unless it's tiny I'm not sure how most outgrow before 6 months. Yes more snug but not outgrown. 18 month is tall and could still squeeze in and sleep if needed in cameleon

I would leave your baby lying flat as long as is reasonable. If you can get to the 6 month mark then great but for example my DD was sitting up unsupported by 6 months so she was in her seat by 5 and a half months. DS was pretty sick, so he got sat in a seat again by 5 and a half months. But with both, I tried my best to keep them there as long as I can. If the carrycot is looking big, stick with it - another month cosy in a carrycot would be better for spine development than a month too soon in a bucket seat. My 2 year old can still fit in the Versa carrycot, and the City Select one is a similar size.

Molk I've used the BJCS seat from 5 months as my twins also had outgrown the bassinet. We never used it for very long walks anyway and I made sure they were always flat at home (playmat or cot)

Didnt have any info about this in the instructions.

Cameleon has a bucket seat hence bad for breathing. In the bugaboo instructions it says that the bucket seat can be used from 4 months of age fully reclined for SHORT periods of time so up to a couple of hours like a car seat. I would use a small folded blanket to pad out a bucket seat and make it flatter if that makes sense. The silver cross wayfarer used to come with a special cushion specifically for that purpose so you didn't have to use the carrycot until 6 moths.

It's to do with baba spine and breathing. Laying fully reckoned is better for both than being folded in half.

Bugaboo cameleon lays down fully but it still says from 6 months.

It's more to do with development and how long you want them to be in it for, which pushchair are you wanting to use?

When they say a baby can only sit in the pushchair seat from 6 months, is it really from 6 months or can it be used earlier if you have per say a larger baby?
