What is a baby stroller footmuff
A footmuff for baby strollers is a baby sleeping bag studies to attach to your stroller so they can be warm and cozy in winter.
You find them in shops under the name stroller footmuff /baby stroller bunting / stroller warmer (also pushchair footmuff, cosy toes, buggy footmuff or pram footmuff) and they all operate the same way however, with different specs depending on the exact model.
They are useful to keep baby warm while
In the pram in cold weather while keeping them securely strapped into their stroller.
Do I need a stroller footmuff? Is is better a footmuff or baby snowsuit?
Baby snowsuit are super cute so it can be tempting to use those and save the footmuff money however, i would argue that you need both!
A stroller footmuff and a snowsuit do two different jobs.
The snowsuit is great for toddlers to be walking and playing in the cold and snow however, they are a pain if you are going in and out of the car or shopping mall.
Esch time you get out of the cold, you need to wriggle you child out of the snowsuit and you also have to make sure that, under it, they are dressed warm enough for when they take it off but not too warm in the car/shops because of the extra layer
A winter footmuff is kuch easier to use. You cam dress your child in their normal clothes to go out and simply get them in and out of the bunting bag like you do from the buggy.
The other thing that makes a sttoller footmuff better is safety. Good baby buggy sleeping. Bags are studies to allow the stroller straps to pass though them securing your child to the stroller safely.
If, like me, you spent ages looking for the best stroller and made sure it had a 5 point harness and all safety gear, you want to be able to use them!
What to look for when choosing the best stroller footmuff
When picking the best footmuff for your pushchair, i recommend you look for
- Age suitability. Many footmuffs are specifically for babies or toddler. Consider the height of your child and pick a size that makes sense for them and also for the stroller you have. You want to makw sure the bottom doesn’t hang too long and your child has some wriggle room and space to grow. Check the cosytoes your pram comes with: some are meant for growing with your child but others are really only suitable for babies.
- What stroller it is for. Some footmuffs are specifically made for a certain stroller brand and model while others are universal footmuffs, which usually means they fit most strollers with standard harnesses. Make sure you don’t accidentally get one for a stroller you don’t have as this usually means they are not safe on different models.
- Material. Choose materials that match the lastest safety standards for baby and toddler gear, for peace of mind
- Warmth. Some footmuffs have tog ratings, most don’t. Make sure you pick one suitable for the job especially if expecting very cold winters. Adding a blanket on top of a bunting bag is not easy (they slip off a lot) so you need a footmuff that works well on its own.
- Water resistant. Make sure the footmuff can take at least a little rain, snow and spillages
- Machine washable
- Closed / zippered bottom. Once your child it is handy to have a footmuff that zips open at the bottom. This is especially handy when your child has dirty shoes and it is too cold to let them go without just ti save the bunting bag. Opening the bottom zip, if provided, will keep the bag clean and also save it from possible tear from kicking (because kicking on the pushchair is a given!)
