Mikado Duet Lux: Where to find a double pram rain cover and car seat covers?

Ky • 11 Aug 2021

I have the 3 in one and wanting to get a raincover to cover the carrycots do you know where I can get one from?

Also, the carseats have no covers on them any ideas where to get some from?

Hey, Ky,

If the seller didn't provide any rain covers to your double pram, you should be getting any universally fitting double one (ask around in the shops in person, don't buy a double for two carrycot-pram because they might just not fit)... OR two single universal rain covers. I would suggest something like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Playshoes-Travel-Universal-Pushchair-Stroller/dp/B01GUVJVP2/ref=sr_1_15?dchild=1&keywords=twin+pram+carrycot+rain+cover&qid=1629030191&sr=8-15

With the car seats, do you also mean rain covers? Rarely the travel system/car seat configurations are equipped with rain covers. I would either use the one for seat units or carrycots or just not use any... A car seat, anyhow, is NOT a way any child should be transported regularly for longer periods of time. Maximum half an hour for traveling in the car, to walk longer in the shops or regular walks, absolutely do take a carrycot of a seat unit with you for your babies. The not-laying position of the car seats does put a strain on their necks and spines too much.

And if you meant a cover for the legs.. a good car seat footmuff will be enough - it will do. Get something like a Lodger Mini Bunker or any of the sorts; you'll find so many uni ones of googling 'car seat footmuff'... 😉

Or get a cosytoes fitting pretty much anything - like https://www.amazon.co.uk/BundleBean-Grey-Elephant-universal-waterproof/dp/B00PLL5ZTE/ref=sxin_12_trr_60264031_2?cv_ct_cx=car+seat+footmuff&dchild=1&keywords=car+seat+footmuff&pd_rd_i=B00PLL5ZTE&pd_rd_r=31272d4a-3391-47cd-b840-6e070559cb29&pd_rd_w=wyepb&pd_rd_wg=ipMWd&pf_rd_p=1d13bff8-47cf-4a87-a6dc-3d450fd9093d&pf_rd_r=ZZJASY1JJFZ0BY7V9285&qid=1629030455&sr=1-3-439ac954-ad46-4ba0-bd86-480f8aab80ed.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
