Ah, the dreaded buggy-tip. Those days may be far behind me now, but I can still remember the classic moments when the pushchair, over-laden with shopping bags, tipped over backwards, sometimes with baby Tabitha still strapped in. Even her hilariously stunned face didn’t make up for the utter annoyance, or, in the case of the few times it happened while we were on the bus, acute embarrassment.
Of course, there are buggy weights, but honestly, do you really want to add to the sheer poundage of your pushchair without getting any benefit?Â Hamsterbags look like they make a lot of sense. Just like bike panniers, they strap one to each side, distributing the weight of your shopping or whatever else you need to be lugging around. They fit all the standard pushchairs like Maclaren, Silver Cross Pop and Mamu – you can check if your brand is included here.Â They’re Â£29.99 for a pack of two (one for each side), with delivery included, and they come in grey with green or blue highlights, although other colours are coming soon.
