A footmuff is a detachable insert that can easily be added or removed from your child's pram. Their main function is to keep your little one warm and dry whilst out and about.
While they are referred to as footmuffs, these inserts will typically extend as far up to your baby's neck and face, providing insulation and warmth without constricting your baby's movement. Easy-close zippers or fastenings ensure you can easily open the footmuff to help control your baby's temperature. Footmuffs come in a range of styles, textures, and colours to pair with your travel system.
While footmuffs are not mandatory, many parents consider them to be a sound and essential investment to accompany their baby's travel system. Footmuffs provide your baby with added warmth and insulation in colder months, keeping out chilly draughts and even the likes of rain and snow.
They are usually designed to attach to the pram, which also prevents your baby from kicking them off as they could a blanket, or even wriggling out of their pram. Easily adjustable, most parents find footmuffs to be a great way to adjust their child's temperature when out and about with minimal fuss.
Footmuffs can be used from newborn through to three years of age, or until your baby outgrows either their footmuff or their pram/stroller. There are no specific rules to say when a baby or toddler should stop using a footmuff, however as many parents find them to be a convenient way to keep their children warm and protected from poor weather conditions, they will use them for as long as possible.
Your child may also reach an age where they express that they no longer wish to use a footmuff, so it is often down to parental discretion when to stop using them.
