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 eg Graco, Hauck, Joie, Bugaboo Stardust that take a mattress sized up to 95cm x 65cm mattress (this is the industry standard). 

If your travel cot has mattress sized 120cm x 60cm then you need SnoozeShade for Cots & Mini Cot Beds

** It also fits the triangular-style travel cribs from BabyBjorn, Nuna Sena, Guava Lotus, BabyLo, Venture, Phil & Teds and many more – these tend to use a slightly larger mattress. If your mattress is sized up to 106cm in length then SnoozeShade for Travel Cots will fit. 

You can see 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.

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. 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).

Best thing we took on holiday!!

We have a pushchair snoozeshade and bought a travel cot one to take on holiday as we were sharing a room. The baby slept through each night even with lights on and one long sleep during the day. She also slept in her buggy twice for at least an hour each day. These both honestly made life so easy for us and I don't think we would have enjoyed the holiday half as much without them!!!

Great for Pack and Play blackout

Bought this product to use with our pack and play in our trailer. Our kiddo is used to a dark room and needed to replicate that as much as possible. While it is not completely blackout, it has worked wonderful to keep our baby asleep during naps and bedtime. We have used it also while out and about places to re-create nap environments for them on the go. Definitely worth it and gives us a little more sleep while camping and early sunrises!

Not blackout, but reduces visual stimulation

We got this for a week long trip which included a shared hotel room, a tent, and an AirBnB. For reference, our child is used to a blacked out room by himself. This cover is definitely not black out, which is why I've dropped stars. However, it's breathable, and they can't see out to be alerted Mama is in the room, it's time to wake up. Which has happened on previous trips with the plain, uncovered pack n play.

Only way to travel

We're a military family moving for the first time since we had our daughter. We stayed in hotels for about a month and this was the only way to be able to function after she went to sleep. It was dark for her to sleep and we could get some stuff done after bedtime. Game changer. And it comes with a little bag so transporting it was super easy. Definitely worth it.
