Lights or High Visibility Gear for pushchair

Does anyone have any lights or high visibility gear that they recommend for walking with the pushchair in the dark? We walk to and from nursery (1.5 miles) and with the time change it's now a much darker walk. One of the main roads is quite dark with very little street light but it has a lot of traffic. Both the pushchair and my winter coat are black as night, so I'm concerned that we can't see or be seen. I was thinking of looking at some bike lights.

Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.

You can get adhesive reflective tape. I've seen buggies with it wound round the supporting parts of the frame. Like this

I just got some buglights from proviz as I was worried too!

Thanks for the suggestions. I've ordered the bug lights and reflective tape, so hopefully problem solved with that combo.

I wear a hi vis jacket, have reflective strips on the front of the pram & have a torch which I can strap to the front of it too.

I was going to suggest buglights and Wagalum reflector (or reflective tape) but see above that someone has also recommended them.

Also you can look at the pram cover by Askalitt

We bought wrist bands from the high street shop RED which are motion activated. I plan to wear some and hang some from the pushchair.

Weve got some frogs which attach to various bits of the buggy and I wear a high viz vest. Cheap as chips!
