Product Description
Fitting tips & product FAQs

How does SnoozeShade for Travel Cots work? This portable blackout canopy fits easily over most standard travel cots to create a cosy space for your baby or toddler by blocking out 94% of light and blurring distractions. It helps ensure your child can switch off and go to sleep in unfamiliar or bright surroundings – for example when staying away from home, sleeping in a room without curtains or blinds, or room-sharing with the rest of the family on holiday.

What age is it suitable for? SnoozeShade for Travel Cots is suitable from birth and can be used right up until your child outgrows their travel cot.

Will it help my child sleep when we’re away from home? The science behind SnoozeShade for Travel Cots is all about encouraging deep and restful sleep. Our unique fabric creates a comfortingly dark space – even if you have a light on in the room – which boosts melatonin (the sleepy hormone) and helps children drift off to sleep. When they naturally stir between sleep cycles, the distraction-blurring mesh prevents them from latching on to visual stimuli (such as another family member moving in the room) that may cause them to wake up fully.

SnoozeShade fabric also offers protection from insects like mosquitoes, making it ideal for the summer months and trips abroad. SnoozeShade for Travel Cots is used in the childcare facilities of all Mark Warner European holiday resorts.

What are the windows for? SnoozeShade for Travel Cots features two single-layer mesh windows (one at either side), complete with adjustable blackout flaps. You can choose to cover both windows completely for maximum darkness, or roll up one or both of the outer flaps and secure them with our baby-safe poppers. This allows you to adjust the light levels inside the cot to suit your child.

What is the top panel for? When fully open, the top panel creates a large opening for lifting your child in and out of their travel cot. It features a two-way zip that can be closed completely for sleeping and partially opened when you want to check on your little one without letting in too much light and disturbing them. If you want to leave the top panel open, you can fold it into the integrated pocket to keep it safely tucked away. 

Is SnoozeShade for Travel Cots easily portable? Yes! It packs down into a handy storage bag (free with every order) and is super lightweight, with no complicated attachments to carry with you. It weighs just 1.1kg and is small enough to pop in your suitcase without taking up much room at all.

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 travel cot? SnoozeShade for Travel Cots fits all standard rectangular travel cots as well as the triangular-style ones from BabyBjorn, Nuna Sena, Guava Lotus, Phil & Teds and many more. The size of your mattress is the important bit! If your mattress measures up to 95 x 65cm (37.4 x 25.6"), SnoozeShade for Travel Cots will fit.

You can see some photos of how it fits onto triangular travel cots here.

How does it attach to my travel cot? SnoozeShade for Travel Cots is fast and effortless to fit. Here are our top tips:

1. Throw it over your travel cot, ensuring the section with the top panel is covering the top of your cot.

2. Pull it down around all sides of the frame.

3. Attach the stretchy straps around the feet or wheels of your travel cot. Make sure the Velcro pads overlap to form a loop.

Why SnoozeShade for Travel Cots 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. SnoozeShade Original has since become the world’s favourite sun and sleep shade for pushchairs, and the SnoozeShade range has expanded to include blackout shades for car seats, twin buggies, cots and travel cots.

Unlike a blanket or muslin, SnoozeShade’s 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. Our fabric is not treated with any chemicals and every component is safe enough for a newborn, including our zips, straps and poppers (which are the only certified baby-safe poppers in the world).

Snooze shade for the travel cot

This was amazing for our camping trip, and meant our toddler woke at his normal time rather than 4.30 when it got light! It fitted our Nuna Sena travel cot perfectly and the large zipped section meant we could leave it open and then zip it up once he was asleep.

Essential product!!

We have a snoozeshade for our pram (which is amazing and a life saver), but we recently also purchased one for our travel cot which we use at our families houses. It gives me the peace of mind knowing that it is 100% safe and breathable, whilst ensuring the room is dark for baby to sleep. A total lifesaver and gives us more flexibility with naps and some more freedom! Thank you!

Absolutely excellent. We used this outside in the boiling weather whilst glamping and she slept brilliantly! We used it over the baby bjorn travel cot and it was easy to set up and remove.
