Depending on where you live, you may find yourself amidst falling snowflakes, melting ice, or pouring rain and hauling your stroller out into the elements can seem daunting. After all, it’s enough just to round up your Minis and get out the door on time, but toss in the weather and the circus begins.
How do you make it work without clearing your schedule? It’s all in the weatherproofing. There are dozens of accessories you can add to your stroller to simplify your travels and keep your Minis protected from whatever Mother Nature has in store.
We took the Mutsy Igo stroller—a luxury stroller with ergonomic seat—for a spin, adding the following items to combat every type of weather.
