Pushchair Accessories

Whilst most pushchairs come with some accessories, it is important to check what is included before you buy. There are many optional extras that you can buy for your pushchair, but whilst these are often very useful, they may add to the overall cost considerably.

Useful Accessories:

  • Mattress: All carrycots need a mattress, liner and apron, plus sheets and blankets for bedding
  • Footmuffs and cosytoes: Pushchairs need cosytoes or footmuffs for warmth and protection, and depending on the weather, an extra blanket underneath
  • Rain cover: Many designs of pushchair will have an integral collapsible hood, but you will also need a rain cover that covers the whole pushchair, to ensure your child is kept dry in bad weather
  • Parasol: a parasol or sun canopy will be needed for added protection on sunny days
  • Zip-up cape: An alternative to a rain cover for a pushchair is a zip-up cape that goes over the pushchair, with a hood in the middle to keep your child's head dry. These are ideal for travelling as they do not take up much space when they are not in use
  • Shopping baskets: clip-on nets or shopping baskets are available for some pushchairs, enabling you to carry a small amount of shopping
  • Changing bag: For a co-ordinated look, many pushchair manufacturers make a nappy changing bag that matches their fabrics
  • Toys: There are many toys available for babies and young children designed to fit onto a pushchair. These may help prevent your baby from getting bored and restless in the pushchair
