Product description
Fitting tips & product FAQs

How does it work? SnoozeShade Original creates a comfortingly dark space that encourages naps 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 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 the snooze mode? Use SnoozeShade Original to completely cover your pram or pushchair 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 zip means you can check on them without letting in too much light.

What's the shade mode? Attach SnoozeShade to the hood and handle of your pram or pushchair to create an overhead canopy that shades baby from 99% of UVA and UVB rays. With a pushchair you can also position it to cover just your baby’s legs – ideal when they’re dressed for summer.

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 can be used from birth to help you establish a nap routine without being stuck at home. When in snooze mode, it works like a portable blackout blind 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 is sitting up and wants to see out of their pushchair, you’ll find SnoozeShade Plus or SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe is a better fit.

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

Will it fit my pram or pushchair? Yes! SnoozeShade Original is universally sized and fits any single-width pram or pushchair 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 pram 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 it 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 buggy basket.

How does it attach to my pushchair? It literally takes seconds! The soft mesh, elasticated sides and stretchy straps make SnoozeShade effortless to fit. Here are our top tips:

1. SnoozeShade Original has 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 pram/pushchair 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 pram 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 mum who needed to help her daughter sleep soundly and stay protected from the sun while in her pushchair. Unlike a blanket or muslin, our scientifically tested fabric is completely 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 designed to exceed UK, European and 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 zips and straps.

Amazing product

I absolutely love my Snoozeshade, I used it with my first child and now use it with my second child. I get stopped by strangers all the time asking where I got it from. I would never use anything else and take it everywhere with me, not just when it's sunny but it also helps my little boy sleep when we're out and about. Genius product

A baby product parents can't live without!

We love our snooze shade! It's so handy for shading and protecting the baby from the sun and being able to cover the pram safely with ventilation (so dangerous to cover the buggy with anything else, even a muslin cloth). A parasol just doesn't cut it! I love that you can wear it over the hood and the buggy handles too, didn't realise that this purchasing this one (it replaced one I had lost) so you don't need to fully cover the baby, just use it as a sun shade if you want. It's literally amazing and an absolute must have when you have a baby!!! We have an I candy strawberry buggy and it works perfectly with it. Such good value. A friend actually gave me hers and I've used it when my oldest daughter was little and for the new baby. I annoyingly lost it but just had to replace it is an essential item. Not just in the summer, I use it all year round to protect from wind, winter sun, for naps, it's just so easy and does the job. Highly recommend this product.

Great coverage with good airflow to keep baby cool

Loved this product. It was much better than using a parasol.

Saved us when we couldn't get a parasol!

The parasol for our particular pram has been sold out pretty much everywhere! So glad I stumbled across this. It is great. It helps my little one nap much better when out and about in the pram. Given 4 stars only for the fact that it doesn't give total sun protection as it can peep in at the sides when on the carry cot. Love the zip feature so you can constantly check on baby without having to take it off and disturb them or to stick their dummy back in with ease! Easy to keep stowed away in the basket of the pram too! An all round great product!

A much needed purchase

We have had problems getting our 4 month old to sleep but the Snoozeshade has been an essential purchase. Our daughter is now able to fall asleep for a nap much easier and we are able to go out more with her, as she can fall asleep anywhere with this over her pram.
