Pimp your Pushchair: Ingenious hacks for strollers that you’ve never thought of

Can’t stretch to upgrading your pushchair but it's lacking what you need? These 12 pushchair DIY ideas from YouTube channel 'WhatsUpMoms' may have the answer to your pram problems. Easy to achieve and certain to make life a bit easier, these hacks feature everyday objects you're likely to already have at home, such as zip ties and shoe organisers and are all aimed at making your pushchair work harder for you. Fed up of your buggy tipping over? Keep spilling bottles of milk? Or maybe the handles are worn down from so much pavement pounding? You'll be amazed how simple these tricks are and with over 4 million YouTube views, parents around the globe are clearly hooked on pimping up their prams! 

Our pick of the hacks:

1. Create your own bottle organiser by simply cutting two pockets off a shoe organiser and attaching some Velcro. Easy!

2. Stylish and useful, tennis racket handle grips can be used to cover old or worn down handles.

3. For slippery conditions, loop cable ties around the wheels of the stroller, clipping them and removing excess to provide more traction on the ground.
