A pram cushion is a cushion specially designed for use in a pram. It has a backrest and two armrests to make sure your baby is as comfortable as possible when you're out and about. The pushchair cushion can be used from the moment your baby wants to sit up and follow his surroundings more closely. The stroller cushion can also be used in the lift, so baby can sit up with a nice cushion in the back.
Stroller cushions have become very popular in recent years, and you can now choose from many beautiful colours and patterns.
If you want a unique pram cushion, you can make it yourself. It's not that difficult.

Stroller cushion diy: How to sew your own stroller cushion!
Of course, if you're feeling creative, you can also sew your own pram cushion. You don't actually need to be that experienced with the sewing machine to get started, as the cushion is pretty easy to make.
Buy pram cushion pattern and fabric
First you need to decide which fabric you want. For children, I recommend sewing in cotton, as it is a natural material and also easy to maintain. It is a good idea to wash the fabric before sewing the cushion, as cotton usually shrinks around 5%.
In Stofgigaten they have over 500 different fabrics, including very nice children's fabrics in all kinds of patterns. So you're sure to find something you like.

Play with colours: choose two types of fabric for your pram cushion
The best thing about pram cushion diy is that you can decide for yourself. Who says the whole pram cushion has to be made from the same fabric? Choose e.g. a nice patterned fabric for the backrest and armrests, and a plain fabric for the middle pieces. Search around the web for inspiration. There are MANY great pram cushion diy that you can take inspiration from.
Filling for pram cushion
For the pram cushion you need 375 grams of filling. I would recommend choosing polyester filling as it holds its shape well, even after washing. Unfortunately, cotton filling tends to collect in lumps, and that would be a shame with such a nice pillow.
Pram cushion - when?
Before your baby has learned to sit on their own, the pram cushion can act as a good back support. The armrests prevent him or her from tipping over and hitting the sides of the pushchair.
Before the child can sit up, remember that the child should only sit with support for short periods. This could be a short trip to the shops, for example, where he or she wants to follow what is happening.
As your child grows, the cushion serves as a nice soft backrest, making the ride in the stroller more comfortable.
The pram cushion can also be used inside the home, and not just on trips. For example, as shown in the picture, the pram cushion allows baby to sit up and look around. With a pram cushion, the lift can almost act as a complement to a pushchair.
Use the pillow from around 6 months.
If you have to put an age on when the pillow can be used, it would be around 6 months. This is the age when most babies will be able to sit unaided, and they will benefit greatly from a pushchair cushion.
The pram cushion provides better comfort
Many children sit a little unsteadily when they have just learned to sit. This can be avoided with a pushchair cushion that is equipped with soft armrests.
