Strollers are awesome by themselves, but sometimes there are times you want that something extra. I have bought something from each category but I also am including things that I do want to try someday or could work for your situation better. I may add to this list as I go on, because different accessories have different needs:
1) Parent Console
If you’re stroller did not come with one, you will definitely need to buy one! It is super helpful just evening putting extra stuff in.
The one I have is this one:
Britax Stroller Organizer, Black
It has two cup holders, a middle compartment with a magnetic cover, two mesh pockets, and a regular pocket on the front. It works so well on our stroller and is nice to have.
This is another one I have looked at:
Zen Kid Premium Stroller Organizer
It has coin pocket and a zipper pocket (I love myself some zippers). And it still has the two cup holders which I most definitely need between mine and the baby’s cups.
2) Child Tray
Your child will eventually need a place where your child can put their snacks or sippy cup, especially when eating out and about. There are different kinds, some that can clip on the stroller frame like this:
BRICA Deluxe Snack Pod
There are also some that clip on the bumper bar:
Valco Baby Universal Pocket Pouch Snack Tray
Of course, there is the one where it actually works with your stroller. I have this one:
Baby Jogger Child Tray City Series
3) Rain Cover
A rain cover or any weather cover, is extremely nice to have no matter the time of year. In the rain, it can help block the rain from blocking your precious one. But also, in the cold, it really does help to keep in the heat. It makes a world of difference in things that you think you need and that you actually used.
Depending on what kind of stroller you have, I would suggest getting one that is specially made for the unique design of your stroller by your stroller’s company if possible.
Baby Jogger City Mini/GT Rain Cover
Here is a basic rain cover:
Jeep Deluxe Stroller Weather Shield
4) Stroller Fan
If you live in a place where it is hot often, or if you plan on visiting a place that is, this is a must! There are two kinds, ones with shields and ones without. Within those categories are so many difference variances on it. There are some that you can sit in the child tray or some that actually clip on the stroller itself (shade or tray).
I have this one:
Babies R Us Stroller Fan
I found it was very worth it to have the ability to clip it on the stroller shade. I actually learned that if you clip it on the shade, pull it all the way down, leave the fan going while you step away for a few minutes, it will keep the stroller cool, like a A/C for your stroller. So nice!
I have also found a new one that I want to try:
Cool on the Go
You charge it by USB and then you can just go with it! It is a personal A/C for anybody because it can clip on just about anything. Looks so innovative and cool!
These are so helpful! You can extra stroller bags, diapers bags, just about anything you can think of! It is nice when you are shopping or going to a theme park where you need quick access to some essentials. There are different kinds, some like a carabiner and others look like wall hooks on your stroller.
I have this one:
The Mommy Hook
Oxo Tot Stroller Hooks
6) City Grips
These are a life saver in the really hot heat and your hands can get sweaty and icky from rubber handles on your stroller. They are also very cute and can help you distinguish your stroller from everyone else’s. These are so functional but also very cute and a must have accessory.
The have three styles:
Double Bar (Umbrella style)
Large Single Bar (Longs)
Small Single Bar (Shorts)
I have some shorts and umbrella and let me tell you, they are the cutest things you will ever see! Grab some yourself and it will make you wish you had gotten them sooner.
This is our list of must-have stroller accessories. What accessories do you think are necessarily for your life?
