Pretty Pram Accessories!

Making a decision about a pram is one of the most important moments in the lead up to meeting your baby.  With so many brands and styles to choose from, figuring out which is the one for you can often be a lengthy process! For some, finding out whether they are having a boy or a girl comes into the decision, and influences the colour of pram they buy, while for others, they prefer something neutral.  If you are planning to use the pram for more than one baby, choosing a particular colour might not be for you.

Just because you go for something neutral, however, doesn’t mean you have to stick to plain colours once your baby has arrived and you are out and about with your pram! There are lots of fantastic brands out there offering lovely pram and car seat accessories, and we’re here today to talk you through some of our favourites.

rosy-fuentes-accessories

Rosy Fuentes is one of our most popular brands for pram, pushchair and car seat accessories.  This Spanish brand creates beautiful car seat and pushchair footmuffs, pram liners and pram sets, car seat hoods and more, in a range of fabrics and colours. This year their pom pom collection (pictured above in the pale blue and white pram set) has proved to be very popular. The leatherette fabric at the bottom contrasts nicely with the soft cotton mix at the top, and the cute pompom detail is a lovely finishing touch. Rosy Fuentes also create a nice range of styles, from simple styles like the plain pink pushchair liner above, to more detailed options with ruffles, bows and ribbons. Some of their products are even reversible, giving you more than one style in one product!

pasito-a-pasito-accessories

Another popular brand from Spain, Pasito a Pasito is home to a gorgeous range of car seat and pram accessories including footmuffs, hanging bags and pram strings. The adorable pram string pictured above comes in pink, pale blue and beige, and each features a different animal. Pasito a Pasito has a wide range of car seat and pushchair footmuffs in a range of fabrics, and the classic pastel colours prove to be popular season after season.

clair-de-lune-ido-car-seat

Grey is definitely the colour of the moment when it comes to prams (see our round up of some of our favourite grey prams!) and Clair de Lune has a beautiful silver toned car seat footmuff as part of their collection. A trusted nursery brand since 1943, Clair de Lune creates pretty, affordable accessories to add to whatever pram you choose. Or, if you’re looking for something a little lighter, iDO created these cute car seat covers as part of their summer 2016 collection, to brighten up your car seat without being too heavy in the warmer weather.
