keeping hair dry when pushing a pram, without resorting to horrid Berghaus type jacket

Any tips?

If my hair gets wet, I always suffer from a really itchy scalp!

Don't like "outdoorsy" type jackets. Have one coat with hood, but doesn't always stay up.

Should I buy one of those little plastic see through rain hoods?!

I just wear a hooded coat. I know I look rough, but my hair will frizz up if I don't. On topic of pushchair problems, how do people carry a basket while in the supermarket?

wear a hooded coat and tie a scarf round your neck around the outside of the hood to stop it from falling down.

Did you see the thread on here about a brolly that clips to your pram / buggy. I thought it was a great idea ! I'll see if I can find it

puffling, I don't bother with the basket as impossible to carry with a pram.

I either use a trolley or put the shopping in the basket under the pram.

It means you get lots of security guards following you round but what the heck I like a bit of company on a trip to the supermarket.

I saw someone who had folded up their buggy and put it in the trolley while their child was in the seat. Seemed sensible but I always ended up with basket on the handles. Which is precarious in terms of weight distribution.

I used to put the buggy in the trolley lockers beside the cafe.
