How to attach footmuff to UPPAbaby Vista
We’ve created a step-by-step guide to show you how to attach footmuff to UPPAbaby Vista. However, since all footmuffs tend to attach to pushchairs in a very similar way, you’ll no doubt find this guide handy no matter what brand of pushchair or stroller you have.

Step 7: If applicable, fold the top of the footmuff down over the bumper bar and fasten.
Do I need to buy pram accessories that are the same brand as my pushchair?
Every brand of pushchair is unique in terms of frame dimensions, seat size and harness positioning, which can make it tricky when it comes to finding compatible accessories. It might seem convenient to buy accessories in the same brand as your stroller to ensure you get the right fit, but the truth is that it isn’t necessary. There are plenty of universal accessories available that are designed to fit a wide range of different pushchair brands and models, and often they are far more affordable than the branded varieties.
At For Your Little One, we have created a huge variety of universal pushchair accessories that are compatible with many of the UK’s most popular pushchair brands as well as our very own line of pushchairs and travel systems. Our pushchair accessories are designed to offer brilliant value for money so that you don’t have to spend a fortune on expensive brands to get high-quality pushchair products.
How do universal footmuffs work?
Universal footmuffs are constructed with a staggered series of slits in the back which allows them to accommodate a wide range of harness strap sizes and positions. Although the seat dimensions of strollers and pushchairs tend to vary a little between different brands and models, the variation is so minimal that it is possible to create universal footmuffs that fit well in any pushchair seat.
At For Your Little One, we’ve done all the research possible to ensure our universal footmuffs really are universal. We’ve assessed the dimensions and measurements of the UK’s top pushchair brands to ensure that each of our footmuffs fit and attach perfectly no matter what type of pushchair you have.
Do I need a footmuff for my baby’s stroller?
Some people opt to use blankets instead of footmuffs when it comes to keeping their baby warm on chilly autumn and winter days, and this is definitely a great option. However, the trouble with blankets is that they tend to shift around and unravel as baby fidgets, which could leave your little one exposed to the cold. Since footmuffs attach directly to the pushchair, they won’t shift as your baby does and you won’t have to keep readjusting it.
Snowsuits are also a popular alternative to footmuffs, but many people find them less convenient than footmuffs when it comes to regulating a baby’s temperature, particularly when moving frequently between indoors and outdoors. With a footmuff, it’s easy to simply unfasten it or take your baby out of the pushchair when you get indoors, whereas with a snowsuit, you have to undress a wriggling baby every time they get too hot! If, however, it’s a particularly cold day and you’ll be outdoors for some time, it might be best to opt for both a snowsuit and a footmuff to make sure your baby stays nice and warm.

How often should I wash my pushchair’s footmuff?
If you’re using a footmuff in your pushchair regularly, it should be washed around once each month to keep it clean, or more often if it becomes heavily soiled. It’s not uncommon for footmuffs to become exposed to spills or other accidents, so it’s always good to have at least one spare on hand just in case it gets very dirty. Bear in mind that your baby will be tucked up inside the footmuff in much the same way it is tucked up into blankets in its cot, so it’s important to keep the footmuff clean of bacteria, dust and allergens that could affect your baby’s health.
Some footmuffs stipulate handwashing only, particularly those which are fleece lined or filled with delicate padding which could become lumpy after machine-washing. This can be incredibly inconvenient when you’re using and washing your footmuffs regularly, so we recommended checking the washing instructions before you buy. For Your Little One universal footmuffs are all machine-washable because we know just how busy life is with a little one!
