The Ultimate Guide to Stroller Organisers

When my twins were tiny I hated being stuck indoors but getting out of the house was such a task. I liked to keep a fully loaded bag ready at the door to try to make it easier.

When their baby brother came along and I had another boat load of 'stuff' to transport I felt like the buggy was a donkey and I was seeing how high I could load it before it BUCKAROO'd.

Investing in a specific stroller organiser that can strap to any pushchair (I had three) that can be moved between them easily, can save your sanity as well as space and time.

We'll help you explore what pushchair organisers are, how they work, their benefits, and how to effectively use one.

What is a Stroller Organiser?


A stroller organiser is a storage bag with handy pockets and compartments that hangs by universal velcro straps from the handles of the pushchair. Buggy organiser bags have sections designed for specific baby items - some have insulated bottle holders, dispensers for disposable or reusable wipes, key holders for example. They are used by parents to keep everything close to hand and avoids stressful searches for lost lip balms or dummies. 

Some like the Babymel Amber come with a shoulder strap to convert to a bag that can be used away from the buggy. Great if you want a one stop changing bag.

Benefits of a Stroller Organiser

There are several benefits of using a stroller bag for parents and children alike. These include:

  • Storage Space: Enough storage space for all your baby supplies.
  • Convenience: Easy access to essential items right at your finger tips.
  • Organisation: Helps keep items neatly arranged.
  • Efficient: Saves time when searching for items.
  • Compact: This saves you space in the buggy overall, leaving room for coats, wellies, shopping, or toys under the pram

What to Pack in Your Stroller Organiser

Everything that you need often for you and baby should fit in your pushchair organiser - 

  • Nappies and Wipes: Either reusable nappies and washable wipes or disposable nappies and single use wipes
  • Muslins and Cloths: Taking muslins for feeds or to mop up mess, muslins make a handy nappy replacement in an emergency too
  • Travel Changing Mat: Changing tables in public toilets can be cold and unhygienic so take your own ready to lay down for baby
  • Bottles and Snacks: Insulated bottle holders can keep babies feeds warm or cold when you are out for extended lengths of time.
  • Dummies: Most dummies now come in a reusable box, keep some spares ready to go in the pushchair bag
  • Toys: Slot some toy cars or action figures into one of the handy pockets ready for boring waits at the shops or doctors
  • Blanket: Roll small and store at the bottom of the bag 
  • Paper and crayons: Storing some boredom busters for older siblings helps if you end up staying out longer than expected
  • Sunscreen: Always needed year round
  • Spare Clothes: Pop a spare romper in case of spills and leaks, even take a spare top for you if baby possets up milk often
  • Hat: Store a spare woolly or summer hat in the bag 
  • First Aid Kit: Just keep a few plasters, teething gel and calpol sachets in one of the zipped pockets
  • Personal item: Wallet, keys, phone, sunglasses, coffee cup and hand sanitiser.

How to Pack & Organise Your Stroller Organiser

Our top tips for packing and organising a buggy bag are:

  • Categorise Items: Store things you will need at the same time together - changing mat, nappies and wipes; dummies with little ones comforter - teddies or blankies; medicines, teething gels, plasters; your personal items.
  • Designate Pockets: Stick to using the same pockets each time so you know exactly where everything is and can grab it quickly
  • Prioritise by Importance: Make sure high use items are closest and easiest to find, and leave items that don't get used often at the bottom of the bag
  • Restock on a Regular Basis: Keep the back stocked and check regularly so you don't get caught without an essential when you most need it
  • Double up: Instead of needing to move essentials between bags or between home and travel, consider having spare dummies, wipes, nappies etc that live in the pushchair organiser

How to Choose a Stroller Organiser


To help you decide which pram organiser to choose think about - 

Size -

Do you have twins and need a big travel bag, or is your car tiny and you'd prefer something compact - most websites give measurements

Compartments -

Would you prefer lots of pockets to separate everything out or do you prefer it all in one main space?

Attachment Mechanism - 

Do you want velcro attachments or clips, a separate handle so you can also carry it with you, or do you want something that stays attached to the buggy?

Compatibility with Stroller -

You need to check the measurements of the bag are not wider than the handles of your buggy and that the straps are long enough to fit around the bar

Style -

Buggy organisers come in styles to suit you, some are padded, quilted, leather, wipe clean fabric, water-resistant and many more types so shop around to find one that suits your fashion sense and needs.
