My stroller gets a lot of use when we are out and about, not just for the baby but for all the other stuff we have to carry along with us. When my other kids outgrew their stroller, I found myself seriously missing the convenience of having an easy spot to put stuff without needing to carry it.

There are some amazing stroller accessories that can really help you make the most out of your stroller. Here are a few of my favorites.

Britax Stroller Organizer – You can never have enough places to put your stuff. A stroller basket is great for the big stuff but you need a place for all of those odds and ends we drag around with us. The Britax Stroller Organizer is perfect for storing your phone, keys, wallet, and anything else you need to have close at hand along with two extra cup holders. I love my Britax B-Ready but this organizer will fit on any stroller you have and can be quickly switched between strollers if you need to.

Extra Cup Holder – Many of the higher end strollers don’t include cup holders anymore but when you are running around with kids, they are essential. We always have to have a water bottle for everyone, even if we are just going out for short trips so I like to have as many cup holders as I can get. In a pinch, these are also great for storing your cell phone or little snack bags.

 

Think King Jumbo Swirly Hook – We always have extra things to carry when we are running errands. The Think King Jumbo Swirly Hook gives you an extra spot to put all that stuff so you can keep your hands free to grab a runaway toddler.

Rain Cover – I used to think that stroller rain cover was ridiculous. I mean come on, why would I ever go walking in the rain. I’m just not that dedicated. Then I got trapped at Disneyland in a rainstorm. It was pure luck that I still had my stroller rain cover in my basket and it saved me from having to very wet kids. I was still drenched but I don’t complain nearly as loudly.

Space for a 2nd Child – So many strollers offer great options if you need to use it to push a second child. This can be a huge money saver if you buy a nicer stroller but can extend the use through multiple children. I loved the second seat for my Britax B-Ready when my boys were younger. There are also some great options if you have a child old enough to stand on something. I think the Orbit Baby Sidekick Stroller Board is just adorable!

    Great blog! I also know of another cool stroller accessory that makes maneuvering through sand or pulling heavy loads a lot easier! It’s simple to attach to the front of the stroller and acts as a long handle made of ropes. It’s super reasonable – only $20 and you can get one on amazon or at http://www.bbwaters.com!
