Trend Test: How Many Stroller Accessories Are Too Many?
When you become a mom, stroller accessories will become a major parenting hack. Stroller accessories make your life easier, but is there such a thing as having too many?
Must or Bust?
While we think that most, if not all, stroller accessories would be nice to have, some are definitely more of a “must-have” item. If you’re on a budget or short on space, we’ve rated popular stroller accessories from 1-10, with 10 being an absolute must, so you can decide which is best for you.
One of the most popular stroller accessories of all time, a handlebar organizer marries the cup holder, phone holder, and additional storage all in one holy grail accessory. With plenty of room for snacks, your keys, wallet, and sometimes even a diaper and wipes, this is an accessory you don’t want to sleep on. You’ll thank us later.
You’re not the only one who wants to bring along your favorite snacks, and we all know there are few things worse than a hangry baby. A snack tray for your little one will help keep them happy and full during your longer outings. Fill generously with goldfish, cheerios, and anything else they like!
Portable Sound Machine
There will definitely be a time when you will be on the go with an overtired baby while on a walk. To help them fall asleep quickly and easily, bringing along a portable sound machine can help lull them to dreamland.
Toddler Standing Board
If you need to transport a baby AND a toddler and don’t want to deal with a double stroller, a standing board is a great option. Still small and compact, your toddler can cruise along with you while feeling independent. For parents of multiple kids, this is a game-changer!
Will you need to keep a baby nice and cool during the scorching summer months? We’ve been there, and it can be a big worry for the really little ones. Keep flushed cheeks and heat exhaustion at bay with a clip-on fan.
Although we’d love all our walks and outings to be a sunny 72 degrees, the weather often has other plans. Be able to go outdoors rain or shine with a simple rain cover or parasol to keep your little one nice and dry.
Stroller Winter Cover
For our mamas who have a snowy winter, a stroller winter cover will be a lifesaver when it comes to making it outside during those long winter months.
Car Seat Adapter
We all want our strollers to last as long as possible. A car seat adapter allows you to use a stroller from the newborn stage throughout the toddler years, saving you money in the long run.
How Much is Too Much?
Stroller accessories should make your life easier, not more chaotic. So where is the line of too many stroller accessories? If things start to feel too bulky or there is too much to keep track of, you might need to simplify. But if you’re a big accessories person, we say go for it!
