Product Description
Fitting & Safety

Click here to take our quick quiz to see which SnoozeShade for strollers you need!

 

How does it work? SnoozeShade Original creates a comfortingly dark space that encourages sleep by boosting melatonin (the sleepy hormone). When your baby naturally stirs at the end of their sleep cycle, the unique fabric prevents them from latching on to visual stimuli that may stop them from getting the deeper, longer nap they need. SnoozeShade can be used in snooze mode or shade mode, both of which protect from 99% of UV rays.


What's 'snooze mode'? Use SnoozeShade Original to completely cover your stroller when it’s time for an on-the-go nap. This creates a sleep-friendly environment that blurs distractions and shuts out 94% of light. A sleeping-baby emblem deters people from disturbing your baby, while the sneak-a-peek zipper means you can check in on them without letting in light.

What's 'shade mode'? Attach SnoozeShade to the hood and handle of your stroller to create an overhead canopy that shades baby from 99% of UVA and UVB rays.

Why should I keep my baby out of the sun? Doctors state that babies under six months must be kept completely out of direct sunlight. Their skin is too sensitive for sunscreen and contains very little melanin, which means they burn more easily. The Skin Cancer Foundation says incidents of sunburn during childhood multiply the risk of one day developing skin cancer, including melanoma.

Will it help my baby sleep? SnoozeShade Original can be used from birth to help you establish a sleep schedule without being stuck at home. When in snooze mode, it works like a portable blackout shade to create a sleep-friendly space, blocking out 94% of light and blurring distractions. It’s recommended by baby-sleep experts worldwide and when used regularly it becomes a sleep cue that helps your child learn when it’s naptime.

What age is it suitable for? We recommend SnoozeShade Original from birth to six months, because it’s proportioned for a baby who is mostly lying flat. If you have an older child who's sitting up and wants to see out of their stroller, you’ll find SnoozeShade Plus or SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe is a better fit.

Is it machine-washable? Of course – it was invented by a mom! All SnoozeShades are machine washable at 30° and can be tumble-dried on low heat. 

Will it fit my stroller? Yes! SnoozeShade Original is universally sized and fits any single-width stroller with a hood, including jogging strollers. We’ve even seen them used on Thule bike trailers and festival trolleys! You don’t need to worry about the type of stroller you have – simply choose the SnoozeShade that suits the age of your child.

Can I use it with a travel system? Yes, you can use SnoozeShade Original with an infant carrier as part of a travel system. Use it to safely cover your baby at naptime or attach it to the hood and handle to extend the sun canopy.

Do I need to leave my SnoozeShade on my pram or pushchair all the time? No, SnoozeShade Original is super lightweight and packs down into a handy storage bag (free with every order) that’s compact enough to pop into your change bag or stroller basket.

How does it attach to my stroller? SnoozeShade Original attaches in seconds. The soft mesh, elasticated sides, and stretchy straps make it effortless to fit. Here are our top tips:

1. There are six sets of straps, but you don’t need to use them all. As long as you have a secure fit with no gaps to let in light, you’re good to go.

2. Attach the straps to the frame of your stroller or through any gap you find (hood hinges are ideal). They can also be attached to each other around the back of (or under) the carrycot or seat. It’s fine to stretch the straps – they’re designed to extend as needed.

3. Pull the hood of the stroller forward at least halfway before attaching the top straps. Your SnoozeShade will then sit lower at the front and will be easier to attach at the bottom.

Why SnoozeShade Original is safe to use: 

SnoozeShade was invented by Cara Sayer – a safety-obsessed British mom who needed to help her daughter sleep soundly and stay protected from the sun while in her stroller. Unlike a blanket or muslin, our scientifically tested fabric is totally air permeable, which means air passes through it freely. If you were to hold a SnoozeShade up to your face you’d be able to breathe comfortably.

All our products are tested to and exceed US standards and are approved by the Melanoma International Foundation. Our fabric is not treated with any chemicals and every component is safe enough for a newborn, including our zippers and straps.

The snooze shade

I bought this product for my baby boy as he was born in the summer I was recommended this friend great value for money blocks out the sun very well my baby has not got sunburnt once its great Quality its also very easy to take on and if its very light and easy to fold up and put under the pram it looks amazing on the pram I think its a fashion statement these days also has an amazing performance on staying on the pram it has little straps at each corner for you to clip on to the buggy but I prefer not to strap it and it still works out perfect

Great for naps on the go!

I love this sunshade. It fits over our stroller (including the bassinet attachment) and has several straps so you can attach it wherever it makes the most sense. Love the mesh to keep it from getting hot, and that it has a zipper so I can easily check on baby and give him more ventilation. He regularly falls asleep with the snooze shade! It also helps protect against the sun and has even helped me in a pinch when it started raining.

Highly highly recommend

Bought this hoping to keep the sun out our newborns eyes but it has served us in more ways than this.

It is great at keeping the sun out and really helps keep her calm when out and about. She is able to nap without being disturbed by light and guilty as charged has saved us having to tell people to politely go away, as she's nicely concealed from people who can be a bit too friendly.

The 6 velcro straps have made it so universally friendly and we have had no issues with securing it to either her car seat or Bassinet depending on what we use on her pram base (it's a travel system style pram).

Would absolutely recommend to anyone, especially a nervous parent who wants to protect baby from the sun, help them sleep whilst still being able to live life or just avoid having people you don't know all up in your space or your child's space.

Love it ??

I go on daily walks with my 4 month old
She loves it!
She will fall asleep looking at the sky and then I will put this on so the sun doesnt bother her.
I couldnt be happier
She sleeps so well and has good airflow still.
It has various Velcro straps so Im sure it can fit many different strollers.
