We’re often asked which SnoozeShade is most suitable for different families, so this week we thought we’d put together a quick guide. This post will tell you all about the products available, how to use them and what age ranges benefit most from them. As with anything, it’s up to you how you use your SnoozeShade and all we can advise is that you use your instincts and ensure your baby is safe at all times. Hopefully this post will help you decide which SnoozeShade to use.
A quick note
Just to reassure you, all of our SnoozeShade products have been subject to rigorous testing that goes above and beyond what is required according to nursery industry standards. This means that we’ve chosen to undertake extra tests to ensure that every single product we make is 100% safe for use. Please be assured that your SnoozeShade is safe to use in hot weather. If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’re on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too.
For younger babies 0-6 months
The SnoozeShade is suitable for use from birth, but there are specific products that are more suited for younger babies. The SnoozeShade Original, Original Deluxe and SnoozeShade for Infant car seat models are all recommended for younger babies under six months. The reason why we suggest these are used for younger babies is because there is no lookout panel (we’ll come to that in a moment). The SnoozeShade Original provides protection form 99% of UVA and UVB (UPF50+) and can be used safely indoors and outdoors.
When baby is asleep, our new LONGER ‘sneak-a-peek’ zip means you can quickly and easily check on your baby without having to lift the whole cover up and let in lots of light which can wake baby.
Parents often find when they start to use SnoozeShade regularly, it becomes a sleep trigger for their child in the same way that shutting the curtains in the nursery is a signal that it is sleep time. Our NEW sleeping baby emblem deters well-meaning people from disturbing your sleeping baby.
The SnoozeShade Original Deluxe is also suitable from birth, and blocks 97.5% of the sun’s harsh UV rays. Like the Original, the Original Deluxe is made from air permeable, lightweight and stretchy mesh fabric that allows air to circulate.
For older babies 6 months- 2years aprox
For older babies who are sitting up, we recommend the SnoozeShade Plus and Plus Deluxe. Both designs feature a ‘lookout’ panel that enables babies to enjoy a good view of the world whilst awake. This means you don’t need to remove the SnoozeShade at the end of nap time, and your baby will still benefit from sun protection too.
