Spring and Summer accessories are important in keeping your baby cool, well-ventilated and free from creepy crawlies. Whether it's an anti-UV tent for the garden, a parasol for your pushchair or a summer cover for your car seat.
From BBQs to the park: our Spring/Summer Holiday Buyers Guide will help you stay cool as the weather heats up. Let's start with Pushchair Accessories.
A good pushchair parasol keep your little one protected from the sun in Spring/Summer - and impromptu showers, too.
BABYZEN YOYO+ Parasol 2019 is the perfect parasol for your BABYZEN YOYO+ pushchair such as the BABYZEN YOYO+ Pushchair Black Chassis and 6+ Colour Pack.
Maxi Cosi Stroller Parasol is easy to fit to the majority of Maxi Cosi Pushchairs, and easily adjustable too. It is a sturdy UV 40+ protective parasol that opens and closes in the same way as an umbrella. It has a flexible arm that offers your little one a great place in the shade all day long.
If you don't own any of these brands, fear not. My Buggy Buddy Sun Shade is a circular sun shade with a universal clip that attaches to most pushchair hoods.
UPF50+ Pushchair Sun Canopy
If you're looking to buy a new Pushchair, then it's an extra plus if your chosen model has a sun protective canopy. Bugaboo Fox Pushchair Sun Canopy has an extendable hood with UPF 50+ sun protection and is made from sustainable recycled yarn. If you prefer a wider range of colours, then the Bugaboo Fox/Cameleon 3 Pushchair Sun Canopy is available from BuggyBaby.
These are just some examples of pushchairs with UPV50 canopies; you'll find many more in our Pushchair collection.

My Buggy Buddy Sun Shade is a handy little device that can be clipped to the grab handles in the car to provide a welcome relief from the sun.
Car Seat Liner For Maxi Cosi Car Seat?
Babies get hot and sticky in the summer, which can lead to their skin becoming red and irritated. A car seat liner, such as the Maxi Cosi MiloFix Summer Cover soaks up perspiration and will keep your baby cool. This Car Seat accessory is compatible with the Maxi Cosi MiloFix Car Seat.
On the hottest days, it's lovely to get out in the garden and have a play. Our Spring/Summer Holiday Buyers Guide will help you choose the best toys for kids of all ages.
For garden based playdates, a playmat such as the Nattou Playmat With Arches will go down well with the baby crowd. The detachable plush toys, mirror and soft material provide entertainment as well as a place to practice tummy time. Alternatively, the Babymoov Babyni Anti UV Tent 2019 is a wonderful invention that keeps your baby safe from UV rays while she plays or naps outside.
Keeping crawling babies out of harm's way can be a challenge in the warmer months. A playpen, such as the Joie Cheer Play Pen Little Explorer, provides a portable play pen that can be easily turned into a play centre - just add toys! it's really easy to fold up and down, and is safe for napping in too, so you could feasibly take it to the park for a relaxing day out.
Toddlers around 18+ months will enjoy ride-on toys and there's no better time to test them out than in the good weather.
