are the footmuffs worth it? and do i need a bagclip?

I've got the the iCandy Apple and I don't know where i'd be without the footmuff!! Yes, it's pricey but I suppose if you've got an iCandy pushchair then you might as well get the accessories
It washes really well too.
I don't have a bag clip, tbh the basket is a really good size so haven't needed to buy one yet (15 months since started using it!) x

We also have the iCandy Apple. We haven't got a footmuff but was thinking of getting one but decided against it for the time being due to the cost. For now we use a blanket over our little boys legs. As for the bag clip i would have to agree with ProudMummy1, the basket is a really good size so i put everything in there, changing bag, shopping etc. x

Yes def worth it!! My DS loves being all snug! xx

We have the Peach and have the matching footmuff and it looks really cosy for our little girl, but I do think some of the other non-icandy footmuffs are really lovely too; although not sure where they're from I just see other mummies with them. xx

It is good but I also have a Morck blanket on my other buggy which is fab and I think I prefer it as when you go indoors you can just adjust it whereas the foot muff is stuck on.

i have the icandy peach black jack and i managed to get a grey footmuff on ebay for ??5.00, its a mamas and papas one, but fits perfectly and matches really well as the black jack as grey edging on hood and seat unit, i dont think a footmuff is worth ??80. Thats just taking the mickey! (imo!)

it would be off ebay as i wouldnt pay 80 for it! no bag clip then!

I got the footmuff for the icandy peach and i really like it. Keeps my lo very snug. It isn't absolutely necessary tho as another footmuff can do the job too- i just like everything to match! lol! I did buy a bag clip but it was rubbish. The basket underneath is a brilliant size and i can fit bits of shopping under there no problem. I tend to have the baby bag over the handle... xx

If at some point you feel the need for a bag clip, nab a karabiner for fiver from your nearest outdoors store.

I bought and have used the foot muff all year (except for about a month in summer), definitely worth it and better than universal ones, as it has a full seat liner combined with it.
I never bothered with a bag clip but if you do plan on using it for lots of shopping then it'd be a must IMO. The basket is generous and you could get a few carrier bags on there but if you were planning on getting more, it's not easy to push while carrying bags.

I have the footmuff, but still use a blanket while ds is small as it doesnt go right up to his neck. He is nice and toasty though.
I havent bothered with a bag hook, the changing bag strap goes over the handle or bags go in the shopping basket. TBH I'd go to the outdoors store as suggested if I really wanted a bag clip.

ive ordered the icandy apple, should be coming by the end of this month! we have ordered the footmuff, i couldnt believe how expensive it was but I love things to match. it looks so cosy! our inlaws bought our pram so I decided I would go back and order it seperately as felt so guilty about the price but they ended up ordering it anyway, oops! I still feel guilty and it was 6 weeks ago!

I have the peach in sweet pea and I love things to match but after the parasol being crappy I couldn't justify the price of the footmuff, so my mum got be a lovely universal one in mothercare that is a beige colour and it does the job x

I got the footmuff when Haiden went into the pushchair part of her Cherry, at about 5 months. It was about ??65 (shocked!!!!) but it was really good and looked so cosy. I put it back on this winter and it seems to have shrunk (or maybe my baby is a year older!) and she doesn't like being covered with it much now. It's alot of money for something I only used for a few months but TBH I would probably buy it again as it matches!
Bag clip- never got one xx

haven't got the foot muffs, dd is still in the carrycot, but i might have a look on evay for ds, as he dies have a tendancy to kick his blanket off, and his shoes! definately gonna have a look for the bag clips too as with the carry cot on (pear) i've got next to no basket left. x

I've got the apple & think the footmuff is definitely worth it, we use it all the time & rarely use a proper coat - just a cardy & zip up the muff - if almost goes up to B's chin & he's always lovely & snug. Then you can just unzip it when you get in if he's asleep so he doesn't get too hot!

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
