Why do parents call SnoozeShade a game changer?

✔️ It creates a sleep-friendly environment for your child, giving you the freedom to leave the house without disrupting their nap routine. (Because no parent wants an overtired child on their hands come bedtime!)

✔️ You can enjoy sunny days outside while protecting your child from harmful UV rays when they’re in the buggy.

✔️ You have the peace of mind of knowing our mesh is completely air permeable – unlike a muslin or blanket draped over the pushchair.

✔️ Our sneak-a-peek zip makes it quick and easy to check on your sleeping child without disturbing them.

✔️ It’s super versatile! Use it in 'snooze' mode for naps or in 'shade' mode to protect your child from the sun while they enjoy the sights.

Need some help on deciding between SnoozeShade Plus Extra and SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe?  Click here to read our detailed explanation of the differences.

How does SnoozeShade Plus Extra work? SnoozeShade 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. Use it in snooze mode or shade mode – both provide UV protection.

What is the shade mode? SnoozeShade Plus Extra can be used in shade mode to shield your child from up to 80% of UV rays while allowing them to see out. Simply zip up the inner window – a single panel of our unique mesh – to protect from sun, wind, light rain and insects. The shade panel has two zips, so you can leave it partially or fully open or close it completely for maximum protection.

What is the snooze mode? When it’s time for a buggy nap, convert SnoozeShade Plus Extra to snooze mode by zipping up the shade panel and securing the outer snooze panel (an extra layer of mesh) using our baby-safe poppers. This creates a sleep-friendly environment that blurs distractions, shuts out 94% of light and blocks 99% of UV rays (UPF 50+).

A sleeping-baby emblem deters people from disturbing your child, while the sneak-a-peek zip lets you check on them without letting in too much light.

When the snooze and/or shade panels are not in use, simply roll them up and store them in the integrated front pocket to stop them snagging on your wheels.

Will SnoozeShade Plus Extra help my child nap? When in snooze mode, SnoozeShade acts like a portable blackout blind to create a sleep-friendly space. It’s recommended by baby-sleep experts worldwide, because when used regularly it becomes a sleep cue for your child, helping them learn when it’s naptime in the same way shutting the curtains at home does.

What age is it for? We recommend SnoozeShade Plus Extra for babies and toddlers who are seated in the stroller seat, because it’s proportioned to fit around a child who is sitting up and wanting to see out. We say from around 6-9 months but it's just a guide - the most important thing is baby's seating position.  If you’re looking for a SnoozeShade for a baby who's in a carrycot, SnoozeShade Original will be a better fit.

You can continue using your SnoozeShade Plus Extra as long as your child is in their pushchair. Our founder, Cara, still used her Plus Deluxe occasionally for the odd holiday, airport or airplane trip until her daughter was five!

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

SnoozeShade Plus Extra



Will it fit my pushchair? Yes! SnoozeShades are all universally sized and fit all single-width pushchairs and strollers 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 pushchair you have; simply choose the SnoozeShade that suits the age of your child.

How does it attach to my pushchair? SnoozeShade Plus Extra attaches to absolutely any pushchair or stroller in seconds. The soft mesh, elasticated sides, stretchy straps and baby-safe poppers make it effortless to fit. Here are our top tips:

1. SnoozeShade Plus Extra has eight 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 stroller. It’s fine to stretch the straps – they’re designed to extend as needed.

3. Pull the hood of the buggy 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.

You haven't had time to get all the video demos done before launch so you can find full instructions for SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe here which is very similar in terms of fitting.  If you need any personalised advice on fitting or using it, please click here to get in touch.

Do I need to leave it on my pushchair all the time? No, SnoozeShade Plus Extra is super lightweight and packs down into a storage bag (free with every order) that’s compact enough to pop into your change bag or buggy basket.
 
Why SnoozeShade is safe to use: SnoozeShade was invented by Cara Sayer – a safety-obsessed mum who needed to help her daughter sleep and stay protected from the sun 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 hold a SnoozeShade up to your face, you’ll find you can breathe comfortably.

All our products exceed UK, European and US safety standards. Our fabric is not chemically treated, and every component is safe enough for a newborn, including our zips, straps and poppers. SnoozeShade is approved by the Melanoma International Foundation.

Perfect for holiday!

I bought this to go with the joie nitro stroller for our first abroad family holiday and it was perfect, it was great in the day for walks as she could nap without the sun, but it was also great in restaurants as it blocked out the lights too while she was napping! Would 100% recommend! It is completely adjustable to different pushchairs too!

Hi Sofie
We're so happy to hear that the SnoozeShade Plus was the perfect addition to your family's holiday. It's great to know that it provided protection from the sun during walks and also helped your little one nap comfortably in restaurants.
Thank you for recommending our product, we really appreciate it!

Not completely black-out
Not completely black-out

This SnoozeShade fits on our joolz aer stroller. The shade is essentially made of two layers of mesh with airholes. Because of this design, it is not completely blackout shades. When put against the light, I was able to see some light peeking through the holes. The materials is thin yet durable, with zippers that run smoothly. I do like that it is very packable and doesn't have any molded wires that make it annoying to fold down.

This would be the perfect stroller accessory for a day at an amusement park, zoo or park where you spend a majority of the day outdoors and need some shade for your little one to nap. As others have mentioned, I would not leave them under direct sunlight as it would still be too hot to nap comfortably as much as this product advertises it is air permeable.

Good to block out sunlight for naps!

My little one will NOT nap when we are out and this sun shade for strollers has helped immensely with nap times! Attaching it to the stroller is easy since there are plenty of velcro straps all around to attach around the frame of the stroller. There is good stretch and the material is soft with lots of little holes all around so that it's breathable. There are secure snap buttons to even open the front flap open and unzip for an open window and it can be closed up to lower stimulation when it's naptime. Huge plus that it also protects my baby from harmful UV rays!

Not ideal for strollers with removable car seat/bassinets that fold to toddler seats

This is great quality! I just wish the ad showed how you put it on. It’s by velcro loops on both sides and then a full stretchy rim. It’s fantastic. But my stroller doesn’t fold without removing the bassinet/seat portion, so I have to undo at least 4 straps of this cover on one side of the stroller to get the bassinet/seat part off, to get the stroller back in my trunk. That’s not quick & easy enough for me. I still think this product is great though.
