When putting together my baby registry, I spent so much time picking out my stroller and trying to find the perfect one for me. After my son was born, I quickly realized after only a few uses that a stroller is really only as good as its accessories!
Having the right stroller accessories can make all the difference, whether you are just out for a stroll or packing everything up for a long outing. After much trial and error, I compiled a list of all my favorite stroller accessories that make your life easier and your baby’s ride more comfortable!
What Stroller Accessories do you need?
#1 Snack Tray Attachment
When your little munchkin is craving a snack on the go, this snack tray accessory is a game-changer if your stroller has the trendy bar instead of a built-in tray like many do nowadays. With compartments for crackers, fruit, and even a sippy cup holder, it’s a snacking smorgasbord on wheels.
#2 Stroller Fan
Hot summer days can turn a leisurely stroll into a sweat-inducing adventure. Enter the stroller fan, the lifesaver that keeps both you and your little one cool and comfortable. With adjustable speeds and a flexible neck, it’s like having your personal breeze on demand. I personally prefer the models with the large clips over the bendable claws. I think they are the easiest to use and stay put how you want them so much better.
Pro tip for expectant moms heading to the hospital soon: bring your stroller fan to attach to your bed during labor. You will thank me later!
#3 Stroller Organizer
Say goodbye to rummaging through diaper bags for essentials! This MomCozy universal stroller organizer is the ultimate sanity-saver. With multiple compartments and pockets, it keeps diapers, wipes, bottles, and your phone within arm’s reach and can take the place of your diaper bag for a quick trip. Plus, its cup holder holds 40oz drink no problem so you can pack your Stanley Cup with ease. (I’m looking at you my Utah moms!)
#4 Cup Holder for Mom
Your stroller may have come with a cup holder, but chances are it probably is pretty wimpy! If you don’t already have the stroller organizer or you just want a separate accessory to hold your water bottle, this one is for you! It is sturdy to hold a heavy bottle and you can adjust where it hooks on to your stroller so easily!
#5 Stroller Hooks
Need more storage space? Stroller hooks to the rescue! These handy little helpers let you hang bags, purses, and even shopping bags from your stroller handles. No more juggling multiple bags while trying to maneuver your stroller through crowded places. It’s like having an extra set of hands (we all need those, right?).
#6 Weather Shield
Rain or shine, your stroller adventures must go on! A weather shield is your secret weapon against unexpected weather changes. It protects your little one from raindrops and shields them from the wind. I’ve even used it to shield snow and cold wind off my baby during an unexpected storm. Plus, it’s a clear window to the world, so your little explorer won’t miss out on the sights and sounds of the great outdoors.
#7 Winter Stroller Cover
If you live in a colder climate, you won’t want to let the winter chill keep you stuck inside for months! Bundle your baby up and put a warm winter cover in your stroller and you are set to continue your daily strolls outside for some fresh air. I loved this fleece lined stroller seat cover that felt so soft like a blanket. I even went and bought the car seat cover version too! The cover encloses your baby fully, leaving just a small space for their head to peek out.
#8 Cup Holder for Sippy Cup
We all know that toddlers love to play the game of dropping everything just to watch you pick it up! Well, this cup holder attaches to whatever sippy cup they are using and prevents it from hitting the floor. So, no matter how many times they try, their cup won’t ever hit the ground. In fact, it attaches up to the handlebar near you giving you easy access.
#9 Stroller Travel Bag
If you are taking a trip soon by plane, you absolutely need one of these stroller travel bags! This lightweight bag wraps around your stroller and protects it from damage so it can get to your destination safely. Just use your stroller to carry your baby until you get to your gate and pack it up right before boarding. It also has straps that make it easy to carry on your back if you need to transport it around that way.
#10 Stroller Phone Mount
Don’t have pockets or somewhere easy to keep your phone? No worries! A phone mount like this allows you to keep your phone easily accessible and secured on your stroller. You can use it for directions, music to jam on your walk, or just to keep a look out for a message or call. No need to lose it in your diaper bag or down in the bottom basket of your stroller!
So, there you have it! These stroller accessories will revolutionize your strolling game and make your life a whole lot easier. So go ahead, accessorize your little one’s ride and hit the streets with confidence, convenience, and a touch of style. Happy strolling!
