If you have bought a new pram, you may be on the hunt for a new pram liner. Pram liners are the best and most effective way to keep your stroller free from mess, spills, crumbs and general wear and tear. Finding the right liner to keep your pram in optimal condition can be quite time consuming as there are so many options to choose from. So, we have put together a list of the best pram liners and footmuffs to keep your baby comfortable and clean.
A clean, well-maintained pram means you will have it for any other children in the future, or you can resell it once you are done using it.
What material is a pram liner made out of?
The materials that your pram liner is made of depends on the model, brand and use. Pram liners are often made of cotton as it is a comfortable and safe option for babies. Cotton is a highly absorbent, soft and durable fabric, making it a good material for pram liners. Most companies will offer other alternatives to cotton, such as rayon or mink. You can also find pram liners that are made from wool or Oxford material.
Here are some things to consider when shopping for the right pram liner:
Practicality: Pram liners work as a padded barrier between the pram and your baby or toddler. It provides additional cushioning that is great for your child’s comfort; however, it is good to remember that the pram will still need to fold down easily. Stay clear from anything with too many lumps and bumps.
Easy to clean: Liners are designed to reduce general wear and tear on your pram’s seat from dirt, crumbs and spills and potty training accidents. Having a pram liner that is easy to clean is essential. Look for ones that are machine washable or reversible.
Comfort: Make sure to buy a pram liner made of quality fabric. It will need to be easy to wash, but softness is also a factor to consider, too. You want to encourage your toddler or baby to stay inside the pram and keep cosy and warm or cool. Some materials have temperature regulating properties to keep babies warm in the winter months and cool for the warmer months.

Mum reviewer Hanna says, "This is a great stroller liner as it adds a layer of protection and comfort for your baby. It's a universal stroller liner so can fit into different strollers. Often with strollers, there isn't much padding or comfort in the seat so this liner has helped make day trips out with my toddlers more comfortable. It is easy to wash and so I don't have to worry about them ruining the pram with their food!"

Review: "I bought this over a month ago as summer was approaching in my country and had been using the bugaboo bee seat with the "winter footmuff", which is also brilliant for colder months. The summer one is light and breezy, and reversible. One side is suited for hotter days. Quiet happy with the colour blue goes well with the canopy. Also practical if there's a little accident, as you can remove and wash it quickly, and doesn't spoil the standard liner that comes underneath."

Mum review: "I bought this footmuff to go with the hood on my buggy. I just love it. I thought the design would be too overpowering, having both the hood and footmuff matching, but I really like it. Also, very fast delivery, which was great as the weather is getting colder! Overall very pleased with my experience. And I will be shopping with bugaboo again."

Mum review: "I bought this liner as my older two daughters had loved their lambskin liner in their prams. It kept them very cool in summer and warm in winter, so I was keen to use another with my youngest baby as the weather is currently very hot. This liner is unbelievably soft, and it fits into my Noordi Fjordi carrycot perfectly. I would highly recommend this liner, and we will be using it for many years to come as there are numerous holes in the backing for pushchair straps to fit through, so it will grow with our baby."
