What baby stroller accessories do you need? It has been a while since I reviewed or made a list of only accessories such as car seats, carrycots, stroller boards, etc.
For this post, I decided to do a list of 12 baby stroller accessories you might need in your journey. I will list famous car seats some of which I already did a review on, and others I will make a short review on them.
Carrycots are also included and these will be carrycots for famous prams. Universal rain cover, strollers boards, clips, pram toys and nappy changing bags.
I will only review these and not any other accessories you can use with your buggy. I consider these accessories to be important and helpful.
This list is of my own and I have researched to find out what accessory will best suit most families or all. This does not mean they are the only suitable ones.
Some of these don’t have images, so you have to click the links to view them.
Why Do You Need These Accessories?
So, why do you need accessories for your stroller? Well, I have already mentioned in details why all of these accessories are important to have individually.
Let me just summarise it. I have had experience with many of these and I have seen one of these been used by one of my friends and one I have researched.
Using car seats on the stroller for the first year is one of the best experiences I have had. Even if your stroller seat is from birth the car seat is much better.
You have your baby nearer to you, and if they happen to sleep in the car with the seat you don’t have to remove them. Just transfer them without waking them.
The seat is smaller and sometimes can be way cushioned because of the side impacts. You have an adjustable headrest and body rest. So, your baby sleeps in a nice environment.
It’s also rear-facing, well must car seats are.
If you want your baby 100% laying flat which they should do then a cot is the right choice. This is the reason why many parents always buy prams. 2in1 or 3in1 to get the whole bundle. With cots, your baby is fully covered and they have privacy.
Protected from the cold weather. Some cots have adjustable positions which makes them even better as they grow. Prams are always better to have than single strollers. Your baby should be close to you and be covered.
Stroller Changing Bags.
Nappy/Diaper bags are always useful and if you already have kids then you know how helpful they can be. A place to put all of your baby’s or toddlers essentials.
Even your things for that matter. If you get a quality one it can also be used for your personal life. Nappy bags are either included in the purchase of a stroller or you can buy them separately.
Many are even designed for a specific stroller but can of course be used for any stroller depending on the design.
Stroller boards are important and can save you a lot of money if you have another baby. Instead of buying a double stroller which by the way is expensive, a board will do.
Some boards have only a stand or a sit option, and others have both. It can attach to many strollers and it creates a good bond between siblings.
When you ready for the day either you detach it or lift it.
Clips are just used on the stroller to help you hang your bags or other things. It allows you to have more space and will keep things from coming in your way when pushing.
Only here to entertain your little one. Also used on car seats and carrycots. It helps keep them busy and will calm them down when they are upset.
You have pram toys of animals, vehicles, etc and they made with different materials and also can make different sounds. It all helps in your baby’s development. So, not only are they fun to have but also educational.
Rain covers always almost come with the purchase of a stroller if not they can be bought cheap. Some are specifically designed for a certain stroller or strollers.
You can also buy universal rain covers which fit most strollers, but not all. Always check to be sure when are buying a stroller.
