Bunting Bags / Footmuffs: Guide

There are so many stroller accessories these days, wonder how parents keep track of all that. For instance, have you heard of a bunting bag / footmuff?

It is a well-known fact that new born babies / infants have to be kept warm and dry.

So in case you decide to step out of your house with your baby, you will need to take layers of clothing, along with other necessary baby related clothing.

A much better way to do this is to use a baby bunting bag or a footmuff. Read more on the differences between the two.

Bunting Bag / Footmuff

You can buy a footmuff/bunting bag separately as an accessory. If it does come with the stroller itself, it is usually a quilted accessory that you will find is tapered, placed at the foot of the stroller or car seat.

These are usually made of high quality material that provides sufficient warmth to your baby, looks stylish, and are much more convenient to carry.

These accessories are used to keep your baby warm and dry in cold weather, when you’re outdoors. Most bunting bags are available for children – newborn to 2-years old.

Nowadays you may even find one which is water resistant. If you have a bassinet or a carry cot, you need not worry because the footmuff may still be able to keep your baby warm in a bassinet. Some footmuffs have a back covering too, apart from just covering the feet of the baby. It almost looks like a sleeping bag and your baby can comfortably slide into it.

Bunting bags can also be used on most trailers and strollers, and are compatible with most 5-pt harness systems and systems that include a lap belt.

And since babies are involved, expect safety to be given primary importance.

That is why you will find safety straps of either three or five point harness systems to rest directly on child.

Most recent baby bunting bags are versatile enough to be used with car seats, strollers, joggers, and bike trailers.

Baby bunting bags can be found at most retailers, they’re popular baby items and are considered as safe for your baby.

Word of Caution

A word of caution here, do not use anything quilted and thick under your baby in a car seat. Using the sleeping bag style bunting in a stroller is fine but you should avoid it in a car seat unless the manufacturer themselves sell a bunting designed for the car seat.

Car manufacturers usually discourage owners to add items, such as bunting bags, to your baby’s car seat because it poses safety risks (risk of suffocation). Don’t use bags, pads or any other items unless they are part of your car seat or are sold by the same manufacturer. Furthermore, bunting bags haven’t been tested for use with car seats, so not enough evidence exists suggesting that they can be used safely in these instances.
