Have you ever been in a situation where you can’t do anything to make your baby happy in the pushchair? Honestly, am I the only mum that struggled for almost 7 or even 8 months to make her baby happy in the pushchair?
This has been a long journey for us but let me tell you there is one day that suddenly everything changes and your baby will start liking it. We bought all the accessories that you could imagine in order for Sienna to be happy there. I was always experimenting new ideas to achieve this – I did everything, bought a sheepskin liner to maintain her temperature, bought the special footmuff for the Bugaboo Bee, changed canopies, had the cocoon when she was born, changed the position to face forwards (when she was old enough) so she can see more, etc, etc. Nothing ever worked for me, she just always hated it.
I thought I was going to end up having a beautiful pushchair just for decoration! It wasn’t like this when I had Bella, she liked her pushchair since the beginning. It just shows you that every child is completely different!
The possibility that Sienna would have a nap in the pushchair was always very little! My mother-in-law used to say that I should take her out for a walk in the pushchair every day so she will just get used to it. However, it was just so painful to hear her shouting and screaming loudly every time that I attempted to put her there. I just couldn’t leave her there for long!
I would always pray for her to wake up one day and finally like it. Guess what? My prayers were finally answered! Sienna just grew up, gained a better posture and just started to enjoy the view!
This post is for all those parents that are suffering with the same unhappy baby who hates his/her pushchair. Just be patient, it is just a phase and your baby will come out of it. Some babies, or maybe let’s say “most babies” are happier to be pushed all the time and love to fall asleep in their pushchair but there are some, like mine, who won’t have it at all! This will eventually change and the only thing I can’t tell you is exactly when that moment will come, I can just tell you that it will happen eventually.
For those experiencing this, I hope this post has given you some hope. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and to let you know that you are not alone. Things are tough sometimes but they will get better.
Do you also have a child that hates their pushchair like mine? Leave me a comment with your story, I’d love to hear it.

We have three pushchairs but –Ted wants to be carried THE WHOLE TIME! Great photos. #bigfatlinky
Isn’t it annoying!!! I had to use the Manduca carrier for the first 7 or 8 months!! Was a nightmare!! I’m so happy that finally she loves her pushchair! Thanks for hosting Al! xx
Interesting! I would have given up long before you. I definitely believe that children, like adults, have preferences and sometimes, it’s worth honouring them. That said, with twins, not using a pushchair was simply not an option, so mine had to deal with it even if they didn’t want to! Thanks for linking with #TwinklyTuesday.
Oh my God I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had twins!! If one is such a hard work I can’t imagine 2!! At leasr you were lucky they like their pushchair! Thanks for hosting, xx
Oh those smiles are heart melting. So cute. I have been lucky both kids still love to be in a stroller at 2 and 4 I know way too old but hey traveling all day gets tiring even for me. I can’t get over your little ones happy faces. It’s made me sooo brooody! lol hahaah Thank you so much for linking up to Share With Me #sharewithme
Thank you lovely!! It is is actually amazing to get those happy faces of Sienna in her pushchair!! LOL It took me a long time!! My 5 years old sometimes likes to get in her sister’s pushchair and wants to be pushed so I do understand you haha Thanks for hosting,xx
Such cute smiles! Both the boys hated their pushchairs. They always seek ed independence rather than confinement. #bestandworst #bigfatlinky

Oh no 🙁 Well my son didn’t mind it until he could walk…once he could walk that was it he would not go in the pushchair! My daughter seems quite happy in it but doesn’t sleep in it much at all! Thanks for linking up to the #bestandworst and hope to see you next week 🙂 xxx
