A good stroller caddy is just the thing for keeping the essentials tidy and within reach while on the go. "Stroller organizers can hold your phone, your keys, a package of wipes, water bottles—and some have an insulated compartment to help keep things cold," says baby gear expert Jamie Grayson, CPST.
We compiled buying tips from Grayson, then researched versatile, adjustable, easy-to-clean designs. Our favorite is the TwelveLittle On-The-Go Stroller Caddy 3.0, a universal carrier with multiple compartments, pockets, and even a changing pad.
Now, it's important to note that placing items on the handlebars of a stroller could pose a tipping hazard, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. With that in mind, you should always check that your specific stroller model is compatible with a handlebar stroller organizer—and if it isn't or you're unsure, opt to stow your essentials in the stroller's lower storage basket instead.

TwelveLittle On-The-Go Stroller Caddy 3.0
Lots of pockets
Magnetic flap closure
Detachable shoulder strap
On the pricey side
Grayson recommends universal designs—and TwelveLittle's On-The-Go Caddy is a versatile cross between a stroller organizer and a diaper bag. The messenger-style carrier comes with a detachable shoulder strap for when you want to use it on its own, as well as handlebar clips that can be attached to a variety of stroller models.
It boasts a spacious main compartment with an adjustable divider, multiple interior pockets, a designated pouch for baby wipes, an exterior water bottle pocket, and even a portable changing pad. Unlike many stroller caddies, this one actually closes. The large front flap has a handy magnet on both sides to keep it securely shut or open so you can access your stuff with both hands.
Both the shell and lining are water-resistant polyester, making the On-The-Go Caddy easy to wipe clean. You can also run it through the wash on a gentle cycle if needed. In the end, we just wish it was a bit more affordable. It also weighs over 2 pounds empty, so you should be certain your stroller is designed to bear that weight.

Skip Hop Grab & Go Stroller Organizer
Insulated drink holders
Soft and lightweight
No interior pockets
Not compatible with dual-handle strollers
If you're looking for a more budget-friendly stroller organizer, Skip Hop makes a great option. The Grab & Go Organizer helps you keep all your daily essentials within reach, while insulated drink holders ensure bottles and cups stay warm or cold. A couple of internal pockets would be nice, but the external zipper pouch is definitely handy for smaller items. The pouch has a built-in wrist strap and can be removed from the organizer to use as a wristlet, too.
Made of soft yet sturdy neoprene, this caddy is extremely lightweight—it weighs under 1 pound. It's also conveniently machine washable (make sure to lay it out to dry, though). While this Skip Hop stroller organizer won't work with dual-handled models, the adjustable straps are designed to fit most other strollers. The bag also easily folds up with umbrella strollers—just make sure to remove any valuable items first, as they might fall out due to the open-top design. Overall, if you're looking for a stroller organizer that's useful for everyday adventures but won't break the bank, the Grab & Go Organizer is a solid option.

Larktale Universal Stroller Organizer
Large cooler pouch
Only one color
With a universal design, the Larktale Stroller Organizer is made to fit most standard strollers, inline double strollers, and even some wagon strollers. The adjustable hook-and-loop straps attach to the handlebar, and there's a removable shoulder strap if you want to use it as a regular bag.
This carrier has a zip-off cooler pouch for keeping milk, formula, drinks, and snacks cool. The insulated pouch is big enough to fit five small baby bottles or 12-ounce cans. There are also two insulated cup holders and a removable clutch for your cards, keys, and ID. We wish there were more color options, but black certainly goes with most strollers.

Petunia Pickle Bottom Wander Stroller Caddy
Stylish yet practical
Comes in fun colors
Insulated cup holders
Easy to clean
Doesn't fully close
Not ideal for folding with stroller
If you like to stroll in style, you'll appreciate Petunia Pickle Bottom's Wander Caddy. There are several designs available, ranging from leopard print and smoky tie-dye to fun Disney-branded graphics and forever-chic black. This stroller organizer has the brand's signature faux leather exterior—the smooth, water-resistant material is a breeze to wipe clean, as is the polyester lining. The organizer also has two straps for carrying it over your shoulder.
Other standout features of the Petunia Pickle Bottom Wander Caddy include adjustable Velcro straps, insulated cup holders, an exterior phone pocket, and magnetic closure. Another unique feature is the spacious fold-out pocket, which seems ideal for stowing oversized yet lightweight items that won't fit in the main compartment of the organizer, such as a picture book, stuffed toy, or extra kids' clothes. It's constructed to fit most strollers with handlebars up to 20 inches wide, but you should always refer to your stroller manual to be certain it's compatible. And since it doesn't zip fully closed, we wouldn't recommend folding it up with your stroller.

Best Organizational Features
Swanoo Universal Stroller Organizer with Cup Holders
Adjustable, non-slip straps
Only one color
The Swanoo Stroller Organizer has a designated spot for just about everything. We're talking multiple zippered pockets (including an anti-theft pocket), a removable wristlet for stuff like cards, cash, keys, and lip balm, and insulated cup holders that can fit large tumblers. It also has an easy-access compartment that serves as a baby wipes dispenser, another easy-to-reach phone slot, and a hanging mesh compartment that you can unroll to hold even more small essentials. A built-in mirror is tucked on the interior of one of the compartment's flaps to check that your baby's messes haven't made their way onto you.
We like that the adjustable, non-slip straps are made to attach securely to stroller handlebars and promise a universal fit across strollers. The Swanoo Stroller Organizer weighs just 1 pound, but you should keep in mind the added weight of the items you put in it, including any drinks. This caddy is only available in one color—black—but it's reasonably priced. Plus, the manufacturer offers a lifetime warranty on the organizer.

Best Machine Washable
Mockingbird Stroller Parent Organizer
Spacious main compartment
Only one color
The Mockingbird Parent Organizer is designed to make your life easier. With a conveniently boxy design, this convenient carrier offers plenty of space for diapers, wipes, and bottles in the divided main compartment. While it doesn't have a designated cup holder, we read reports that you can use one of the smaller sections of the main compartment as an extra cup holder in a pinch. The front zippered pocket is also a great place to tuck small personal items.
The water-resistant material is easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth for lighter messes or when you're out and about. When messes get too big to wipe away, you can toss this stroller organizer in your washing machine. It's designed to be compatible with Mockingbird's Single Stroller and Single-to-Double Stroller. While it's not technically universal, the Velcro straps are adjustable and should work on many stroller handlebars.

Best with Cup Holder
Momcozy Universal Baby Stroller Organizer with Cup Holders
Insulated compartments for drinks
Durable oxford fabric
Doesn't fully close
If a cup holder is a must-have in a stroller organizer, this option from Momcozy is your best bet. The stroller organizer has not one but two insulated cup holders (measuring 3.14 inches in diameter) for baby bottles, sip cups, water bottles, and coffee tumblers. There are also lots of pockets, including a mesh phone slot, and a detachable wristlet that's roughly 5 by 9 inches in size.
This organizer comes with a shoulder strap so you can remove it from the stroller and carry it like a diaper bag or purse. The universal stroller straps are constructed with Velcro tabs, which you can adjust for a secure fit on most strollers. Additionally, the durable Oxford fabric not only resists wear and tear, but it's also easy to wipe clean as needed. The only potential downside is that this caddy doesn't zip fully closed, so you probably won't want to fold it up with your stroller.

Valco Baby Universal Stroller Caddy
Freezer gel packs
Keeps drinks warm or cold
Fits most strollers
No main compartment
Only one color
If you're in need of easy-access, insulated compartments that go beyond cup holders, consider the Valco Baby Stroller Caddy. This stroller organizer has two insulated compartments with flaps you can close to keep air in, and it comes with freezer gel packs you can place at the bottom to ensure milk, formula, drinks, or snacks stay cool. The insulation can also keep hot drinks warm. Between the insulated compartments is a mesh cup holder for beverages that don't need to be kept at a certain temperature.
We should note this stroller organizer doesn't have a large central compartment like many other organizers. However, behind the easy-access compartments, you'll find a spacious mesh bag for stashing things like baby clothes, hats, toys, and blankets. Designed to be used with single strollers, the straps on this organizer have adjustable snaps.

Graco Click2Store Stroller Storage Organizer
Simple yet practical
Only compatible with Graco strollers
Need something bigger for your stroller essentials? If you have a Graco stroller, the Click2Store Organizer is certainly worth considering. This simple yet practical basket can support up to 20 pounds of weight and collapses flat for easy storage. While it doesn't have individualized compartments for different items, the roomy interior is a convenient receptacle for everything you might need on the go—baby bottles, toys, wipes, hats, small blankets, you name it. Plus, it'll be much easier to reach your items than having to reach to the lower storage basket. The stroller organizer also works as a hands-free grocery basket.
Now, in addition to not having pockets, the Click2Store Organizer isn't universal. It's designed specifically to click onto the handles of Graco strollers. It's also on the pricey side.

Dimensions: 17 x 16 x 9 inches | Weight: 2 pounds | Material: Polyester | Colors: 1 color option | Care: Spot clean
Bugaboo Universal Stroller Organizer
Insulated bottle holder
Not technically universal
Many stroller organizers don't zip fully closed—but an enclosed design is what sets this stroller organizer from Bugaboo apart from the rest. That's not all there is to appreciate about this product, though. Additionally, it features flexible inner compartments, multiple pockets, and an insulated bottle holder. It also has subtle exterior pockets that don't fully close but are great for storing small items you'll need easier access to.
Thanks to the water-repellent exterior, this organizer is easy to clean and even machine washable. While it's designed to work with all Bugaboo strollers, it's also billed as a universal caddy. The Velcro stroller straps should attach to most stroller handlebars, and we read reports that it's compatible with non-Bugaboo stroller brands.

Itzy Ritzy Adjustable Stroller Caddy
Soft vegan leather

If you're looking for form and function, the Itzy Ritzy Caddy is worth a look. This stroller organizer is made of easy-to-clean vegan leather with a soft, natural feel. It comes in a handful of chic colorways you'll want to show off, like taupe and ivory, contrasting black and warm brown, monochrome blush, and leopard print.
This stroller organizer has adjustable straps with hook-and-loop straps, so you can attach them to most handlebars. And while it doesn't close all the way and isn't machine washable, we appreciate the spacious interior, two bottle pouches, and front zippered pocket.

Best for Double Strollers
StrollAir Universal Double Stroller Organizer Console
Attaches vertically or horizontally
Six velcro straps
Insulated drink holders
If you have a double stroller, you'll need an extra-wide stroller caddy—and this StrollAir organizer is a solid choice. The design measures a whopping 26 inches wide, and you can attach it to your stroller using the five adjustable Velcro straps. It has a design that's split down the middle to accommodate a double stroller's central support bar. We also like that the nylon exterior is super durable and easy to wipe clean.
This universal stroller organizer has two spacious main compartments with ample pockets and a handy key clip. There are two insulated drink holders, too, including one with a drawstring to keep taller bottles in place. It won't be a good fit for single strollers, but it's a reliable lightweight option for double strollers.
Price at time of publish: $55
Dimensions: 26 x 4 x 5 inches | Weight: 0.99 pound | Material: Nylon | Colors: 2 color options | Care: Wipe clean
Our number one pick is the TwelveLittle On-The-Go Stroller Caddy 3.0. The universal design has an adjustable main compartment, several pockets, a pouch for baby wipes, and a bottle holder, plus it converts into a messenger-style back. But if you're on a budget, you can't go wrong with the affordable, machine-washable Skip Hop Grab & Go Stroller Organizer.
What to Look for in a Stroller Organizer
"When looking for stroller organizers, first see if your stroller manufacturer makes one," says Jamie Grayson, CPST. "Usually, those attach better to your specific model and match the visual look of the product." That said, there are many universal designs with adjustable straps that fit virtually all strollers, like the TwelveLittle On-The-Go Stroller Caddy. Before making a purchase, check your stroller's specifications to make sure it can be used with a stroller organizer that attaches to the handlebar. It's also a good idea to note the design and dimensions of the handlebar, or handlebars, to find a compatible organizer.
Attachment Type and Adjustability
Most stroller organizers attach to the handlebar with hook-and-loop straps, though some brand-specific options clip on. If you go with a universal stroller organizer, Graysen says it should be adjustable to ensure a proper fit and prevent slipping. For instance, the Skip Hop Grab & Go Stroller Organizer has adjustable straps that wrap securely around most handlebars. However, before you hang an organizer from a stroller's handlebars, it's important to double-check that your specific stroller is designed for this functionality. Otherwise, the bag's weight could tip over the stroller, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. If in doubt, it's safest to stow your organizer in the stroller's storage basket instead.
Size and Organization Options
Pediatrician Katy Gibson, D.O., recommends getting a stroller organizer that can hold everything you want to keep on hand—but not so large that it adds substantial weight or is cumbersome to carry around. Dr. Gibson says getting the proper size will also ensure it "secures properly and will not tip over on a small stroller."
"In terms of features, pockets are always great—especially if they zip shut or have a flap for added security," says Grayson. The Swanoo Stroller Organizer goes above and beyond with cup holders, a baby wipes dispenser, a phone slot, and a removable wristlet.
"[Stroller caddies] can and will get messy, so having one that's easy to clean is crucial," says Grayson. Most can be wiped down with a damp cloth and spot cleaned as needed. But a machine-washable design like the Mockingbird Parent Organizer will come in handy when dealing with bigger messes.
Do you need a stroller organizer?
"Technically, no, you do not need a stroller organizer," says Grayson. He explains that many strollers already have cup holders, pockets, mesh hammocks, and other organizational features. "But if you're not lucky enough to have those, you might want one to keep things you might need close by."
What do you keep in a stroller organizer?
You can keep just about anything in a stroller organizer, including stuff you normally stash in your diaper bag, purse, or car. "The list will depend on the age of the child, where you are going, how long you are gone, etc.," says Dr. Gibson. It might include drinks (for both you and your child), snacks, diapers, wipes, burp cloths, a small blanket, a hat, a pacifier, small toys, sunscreen, first aid supplies, and personal items like your phone, keys, and wallet.
Are stroller organizers easy to use?
Generally speaking, stroller organizers are as easy to use as diaper bags. In fact, the extra storage and organizational features often make life as a new parent easier. The only potential hurdle is attaching the caddy to the handlebar of your stroller. But adjustable, universal designs are very user-friendly.
