If you are a mommy to be, or already a mom to a little baby, these stroller gadgets and accessories list is for you. One of the first things any mommy is buying is, of course, a stroller.
It doesn’t really matter which brand you are going to get, each one will need an upgrade of some kind. While some stroller accessories are nice to have, from my experience, some are a must and will make your life a lot easier. Some of these stroller gadgets and accessories are super affordable, and for the ones who are a bit more expensive, well, you can always ask for them for your future baby shower 🙂
All of the gadgets and accessories below were hand-picked by our team of mommy writers based on their own personal experience.
The Mommy Hook
I think that this little helper can be reduced to the words: Small & Useful. Having a baby means that you need to multi-task a lot, which can complicate mundane activities, like shopping for groceries. Now, with a baby, you need to get groceries with him or her. While having a stroller can be sometimes good for carrying those shopping bags, still having a hook, which you can also hang some bags on, is a great storage bonus.
Stroller Net Bag
Extra storage is something that is always welcomed. This net bag will provide you the much-needed stroller storage: You can place your baby’s on-the-go toys, blanket or even use it to carry some wipes and diapers instead of carrying your big and bulky diaper bag. I personally have this one by Minene, it comes is several bright colors and super useful.
You need to carry so many things when you are leaving the house with your baby. This stroller organizer is one of the top selling stroller accessories out there. This organizer really helps you to easily carry your most needed items while looking chic . This organizer is by Skip-hop, a known and loved baby brand. When buying skip hop you can rest assured you are getting something good.
Blankets are always a great thing to carry in your stroller, especially when the weather is bad and you really need a more effective way to cover your little one. This is where the stroller covers come in, you can find a cover from any weather, wether it’s rain, snow or just cold, these covers are super handy and comfortable. More details on stroller cover are available on our post, Beautiful Stroller Covers
Clip for Swaddles and Blankets
This is one small, and very efficient little helper. It doesn’t really matter how awesome the shading situation is, your baby is going to get sunlight on its face at some point. The solution is putting a blanket over the sunshade and pulling it down in a way that will block those sun rays. Naturally you’ll need something to secure the blanket, so this little clips will come in handy
Universal Cup Holder for Stroller
A cup holder is simply a must on each stroller. You can use it to hold your baby’s water, milk or better yet, hold your coffee or drink. You can get a single holder such as the holder on the right of the picture, which is the Brica Drink Pod Stroller. Or you can get a double holder which is their second model, the Snack Pod, that can be used to hold 2 bottles or a yummy snack for mommy or baby. Either way, both are fantastic and will totally upgrade your strolling experience, wherever you’re going.
When it comes to selecting stroller accessories it’s always good to ask for advice from some experienced parents. Sometimes a simple solution can just be the one thing that you were missing. For more awesome baby gear visit our baby gear section on Uptownbaby.
