Do you need a different pram cup holder for cold drinks and hot drinks?
If you're wanting to make sure your hot drink stays warm for the duration of your walk or if you want to keep drinks ice cold, then we'd recommend opting for an insulated cup holder that will work to keep both hot and cold drinks at the right temperature for longer. We'd also recommend putting your drink in a reusable thermal cup or bottle to help your drink stay at the right temperature.
How do you attach a cup holder to a pram?
There are a number of ways a cup holder can attach to your pram. The easiest method is velcro but many mums find this isn't secure enough so opt for a screw on holder that offers a much more secure fit and is easy to adjust.
Are all pram cup holders a standard size?
Many cup holders will meet the standard measurements of a cup holder which is usually the same size as the ones you'd get in your car. This is usually a depth of 2-3 inches and a diameter of 3 inches to fit many standard sized containers.
If your cups tend to be larger than this, then we'd recommend an adjustable cup holder that you can squeeze different sized containers into.
