Product Description
Fitting tips & product FAQs

How does SnoozeShade Original 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 is 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 is 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 SnoozeShade Original 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 SnoozeShade Original 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 SnoozeShade Original 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 SnoozeShade fit my pram or pushchair? Yes! SnoozeShades are all universally sized and fit all single-width prams and pushchairs, 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 my SnoozeShade 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? SnoozeShade Original attaches to absolutely any pram or pushchair in seconds. The soft mesh, elasticated sides and stretchy straps make it 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.

Game changer

I was gifted this item from a work colleague, who had used it on her baby and said it was a must have item… I’ve never heard of it, even though I have a child of seven, however I took a gift and boy am I glad I did! My little boy was born in October, and initially are used it to dark in the pramWhen we were out, he only naps in very dark rooms, and this was an ideal solution to that. However recently we’ve had a massive heatwave, and my little boy, now nine months, has hay fever and does not get on well with the heat, as we find with most tiny ones. This product has been a godsend… I can see in through the little zip, he can see out through all the holes, I’ve checked this by looking through it myself,

I am confident that he is fully protected from UV rays, it is nice and cool inside the pram… And he sleeps a treat even in the blasting heat

I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this when my little girl was small, she is seven now so maybe it wasn’t invented? It’s definitely something I’d recommend for a baby, and I will continue to use it until my son no longer needs his pram or pushchair X

Excellent shade

Delighted with my snoozeshade purchase. We have the egg oram and it doesn’t offer much shade with the hood up on its own. I was fed up walking in different position trying to create shade on our most recent newborn. Snoozeshde has been an excellent addition. I really like the colours. Our egg is a petrol blue so I choose the pink snoozeshade.
Overall fantastic product, excellent customer experience and will recommend to any parents/grandparents/childminders who enquire about our own one.

So happy!

An absolute must have for mums! I no longer have to worry about the sun on my baby. And so much easier than messing around with a pram umbrella when ever you turn a corner. It scrunches up small in the little bag it comes with so I can take it anywhere. He sleeps so much better with snooze shade on too! So happy I found this product.
