Must-have or lust-have, these pram accessories will take your baby comfortably through the hotter months or on summer holidays in the sun. And they might just make your life as a parent easier too!
Horror stories abound about the temperatures that can be reached within a pram or stroller if you cover it with a blanket, coat or similar to keep out the sun. Ventilation is crucial and the SnoozeShade material allows air to flow, keeping your little passenger shaded and cool. It also creates a darker space, perfect for naps away from the midday glare. There's a whole range of SnoozeShade products, for car seats and other products as well as your wheels, and they're a universal fit on almost any pushchair.
Clair de Lune parasol
Many pushchair brands make their own parasols, either in matching fabrics or typically black with their logo, but these from popular nursery name Clair de Lune offer a universal fit for almost all prams and strollers. The Broderie Anglaise (RRP £13.99) is particularly pretty and will give a summery feel to even a plain black or grey buggy.
Elodie Details mosquito net
Insect nets are known for their practical purpose rather than appearance but boutique-style nursery brand Elodie Details puts the beauty into the most functional products, and this is no exception. A choice of gorgeous patterns with a universal fit for most strollers will make your baby's carriage look stunning as well as keeping those pesky midges, mosquitoes and more at bay.
Bugaboo Breezy Canopy
One of Bugaboo's many selling points is the ability to customise your pushchair, and this includes swapping your normal hood for a Breezy Canopy in the summer months or when heading for hotter climes. The large ventilation panels allow the air to flow through, while still offering shade, and you can choose from any colour or pattern for a totally different look.
Cybex Lux Carry Cot
There's lots to love about the new-look 2019 Cybex Priam and one of the biggest is the roomy Lux Carry Cot with its huge Panorama View and Sky View zip-open ventilation panels. There can be few more comfortable ways for the littlest ones to travel in warm weather.
egg Thermal Basket
Ideal for summer picnics, there is a version of this clever thermal bag for both the egg and Quail. It's great for keeping food and drinks cool on days out and it attaches to the back of your main basket so you still have all that storage for your picnic blanket, toys and more!
Sometimes it's the simplest ideas that make the biggest difference! A tennis coach from the West Midlands created Sandsliders after watching families battling to push or drag their strollers across the beach in Gran
Canaria. It folds to fit easily in your luggage and works for all prams and strollers up to 50cm wide. Now £14.99.
