Winter presents a variety of challenges, ranging from icy pavements to chilly winds. As you prepare for the colder months, don’t forget to prepare your pushchair for the winter wonderland ahead. Here’s a comprehensive guide to getting your pushchair winter-ready.

Safety First: Check the Harness

Before embarking on winter strolls, make sure your child is safe. Begin by inspecting the harness on your pushchair. Look for signs of wear and tear that could jeopardise its effectiveness. A safe harness is your first line of defence against potential accidents on slippery surfaces.

Cleanliness is Key

Winter brings muddy terrains and slushy sidewalks, so keep your pushchair clean. Begin by wiping down the exterior, paying particular attention to the wheels. Removing any mud or moisture not only keeps your pushchair looking clean, but it also keeps it from freezing in cold weather, allowing for smoother manoeuvrability.

Weather Repellent Materials

Consider the materials that your pushchair is made of. Choose a water-resistant pushchair to protect your child from rain and snow. A waterproof pushchair keeps your child dry and warm during winter outings, regardless of the weather conditions.

Shielding from the Winter Sun

The low winter sun can be harsh, so protect your child’s eyes. Lower your pushchair’s canopy hood to protect them from the glare. Consider using parasols or sunscreens to provide additional protection from the winter sun’s rays.

Features for Low Light Safety

With fewer daylight hours in the winter, many strolls last into the evening. Choose a pushchair with features designed for low-light environments, such as LED lights. These lights improve visibility, keeping you and your child safe and visible to others, especially on dark winter nights.

Invest in Winter Accessories

Invest in high-quality winter pushchair accessories to keep your child warm and comfortable on winter outings. Consider buying a footmuff to add extra insulation against the cold. Also, remember to attach a rain cover to protect your child from inclement weather.

Hand Mitts for Pusher Comfort

While your child is safely in the pushchair, don’t forget about your own comfort. Consider attaching hand mitts to the pushchair handlebars to keep your hands warm on chilly walks. These hand mitts are a simple but effective way to ensure a comfortable experience for both you and your child.

​​Tyre Maintenance

Before the cold weather arrives, inspect the tyres on your pushchair. Ensure that they are properly inflated and free of punctures or damage. Well-maintained tyres provide better traction on icy surfaces, making winter walks safer and more enjoyable.

Adjust Suspension Settings

If your pushchair has adjustable suspension settings, consider adjusting them for winter use. A softer suspension setting can provide a smoother ride on uneven and icy terrain, ensuring that your child is comfortable during winter walks.

Storage Solutions

Winter outings often require extra gear, such as blankets, extra layers, and snacks. Ensure your pushchair has ample storage space to accommodate these essentials. Consider adding a storage basket or organiser to keep everything within easy reach during your winter adventures.

Embrace Winter Adventures with Confidence

By following these tips, you can ensure that your pushchair is ready for winter adventures. From checking the harness for safety to investing in winter accessories, taking the time to prep your pushchair will make winter strolls more enjoyable for both you and your little one. So bundle up, prepare your pushchair, and embrace the magic of winter with confidence. Babymore provides you with a range of sturdy and durable pushchairs. For example, the Mimi 2 in 1 Pram Pushchair as well as the pushchairs from the Memore travel system range are incredibly useful for your and your little one’s peaceful journey!
