5 Must Have Doona Accessories – Level Up The Stroller

5 Must Have Doona Accessories – Level Up The Stroller

If you’re considering purchasing the Doona or you already have the Doona Car Seat Stroller, here are the top 5 Doona accessories you NEED!

Trust me, I know. I am a real mom with a real baby (actually two babies) and a real Doona user. Make sure to read my complete Doona review here.

I’ve been using the Doona car seat stroller exclusively for the past 15 months with our daughter and used it for 17 months with our son. I can’t imagine life without it or any of these Doona accessories.

I’ve put together this must-have list of Doona accessories after receiving countless questions from readers. I suggest purchasing the top three on my list right away. Trust me, you’ll need them. The Doona infant car seat stroller is a must-have on my baby registry list.

The list of the best Doona accessories below is in order of necessity. I couldn’t live with the top 3 and the Doona padded travel bag (a must for flying with a Doona).

1. Doona Storage Snap-On Bag

One of the biggest complaints about the Doona stroller is there is no storage. True, there isn’t any storage on the Doona, but there can easily be added storage.

There are several Doona bags, but if you ask us, the best Doona storage and bang for your buck is the Doona snap-on bag. It is affordable and offers a ton of storage. I don’t carry a diaper bag anymore. The Doona snap-on bag holds everything I need.

Over the years, a few Doona bag dupes have become available. This wearable organizer bag clips onto the back of the Doona stroller like the snap-on bag, but it also has backpack straps so you can wear it like a diaper bag. This is the cheapest knock-off bag with good reviews on Amazon.

2. Doona 360 Sunshade Extension

The Doona sunshade extension not only blocks out the sun but also bugs. If our little guy falls asleep, it creates a darker space, and hopefully, he’ll take a longer nap. This is a must-have Doona stroller accessory for those whose babies nap on the go or out in the sun often.

Another option is the one pictured below. This is a nursing cover that you can pop over your head to feed your baby in privacy. It also goes over the car seat like above. I have this one, it is was super cheap.

3. Cup Holder

A cup holder is a great addition to a stroller. For under $15, I picked this one up on Amazon. It easily attaches and can stay on the Doona stroller when it is locked in the car seat, so you don’t have to remove it all the time if you don’t want to.

There are other Doona cup holder attachments on Amazon. I have this one and know it works. There are often additional coupon savings. Just make sure to click the box under the price.

4. Stroller Organizer $15+

A stroller organizer is nice to have when traveling. There are tons of stroller organizers out there. I have this Itzy Ritzy one that attaches with velcro, but I recently got this one and like it better. It has more pockets and holds more.

I don’t have it attached every day. I mainly use it when traveling with the Doona, and I want things at my fingertips. The Itzy Ritzy one fits a bottle, keys, phone, pacifier, and burp cloth and still has extra room.

5. Padded Doona Travel Bag

If you plan on flying with the Doona, you’ll want to invest in the padded travel bag. We all see how airlines throw our luggage around. Make sure to protect the Doona by getting a padded travel bag.

The bag fits the car seat base and the Doona. I warn you. The travel bag is huge but so worth it. We have checked it and gate-checked on several flights and never had an issue. Most often, we check it with the car seat base and a bunch of other baby items and then bring our Doona onto the plane as our children have their own seats. If you purchase a seat for your child, you can bring the Doona onto the plane and have it in their seat.

We have checked it as luggage on at least 30 flights since 2020. I also suggest stuffing baby wipes/diapers, Slumberpod, or other heavy baby items in the travel bag since car seats are free to check. You might as well fill it up!

We have the Doona travel bag, but there are a few cheaper dupes online for about half the price, like this one. If you travel often, I wouldn’t cheap out. I would get the original one.

6. Portable White Noise Machine

I know I said five must-have items, but I recently bought this portable white noise machine and love it. It makes napping in the stroller so much better. There are several portable white noise machines on the market. I have had three other types, none of which compare to the Hushh one.

I like this one because it is rechargeable, so no more traveling and needing to find new batteries. On a full charge, the battery lasts me all day.

I also have the Doona Rain Cover but have never had to use it (thankfully). I think the sunshade extension would do a good job blocking raindrops until I made it inside. If you live in a rainy area like Seattle or London, it would be best to get a rain cover.

*Update: I recently used the Doona Rain cover on our Alaska cruise. I couldn’t find my original one, so I bought this knock-off Doona rain cover for half the price, and it fits like a glove.

I also have these shopping hooks that attach to the Doona stroller handle. They are rated to hold 11 lbs each. It’s great if you are at a farmers market, festival, etc., and need somewhere to put some shopping bags.

Do you have a favorite Doona accessory I missed? Please share it below in the comments. I’d love to test it out!

I don’t see any need for any of those items I just put a blanket over my sons doona and also I did buy a cup holder but never used it I did think about buying the storage bag but didn’t cause I didn’t think I’d really use it that much I did buy 4 other car seat bases for are 4 other cars I think that was the most successful purchase related to the doona I’ve ever made besides the doona

Isn't it an issue for newborns and young babies that it can't lay flat? Also, do you need to carry a base with you to lock it into any vehicle?

I would no recommend leaving a newborn in more than two hours, which is the what Dr.s recommend for all car seats. We have a car seat base in my car and in my husbands. When traveling you can install the car seat with out the base, there is an instruction sticker right on the Doona with lap belt instructions.
