Product information
Fitting & safety

Click here to take our quick quiz to see which SnoozeShade for prams you need!

How does it work? SnoozeShade Original creates a comfortingly dark space that encourages naps by boosting melatonin. When your baby naturally stirs at the end of their sleep cycle, our unique mesh 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 UV 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? Babies under 6 months must be kept completely out of direct sunlight as their skin is too sensitive for sunscreen and contains very little melanin, which means they burn more easily. 

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 smaller 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 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. Every component is suitable from newborn, including our zips and straps.

You can also buy SnoozeShade on Amazon so, if you prefer, you can get free Prime delivery or have it shipped worldwide using your Amazon account. (Not all products are available in every country. Please contact us if you need any help.)

Must have

I debated buying this for a little while, but once I had purchased it, I realised I should�ve got it a long time ago. This has come in so handy and really gives me peace of mind when I�m out and about with my daughter not having to worry about the Sun getting on her, this is now the thing that I recommend to all the parents to be when they ask for my recommendations of what to buy for the newborn.

Amazing product!

I bought one of these shades over 7 years ago when I was having my first baby. It has been used on double and single buggies, over and over. I never go anywhere without it. It washes well and dries quickly. It can be used as an emergency blanket, shawl and shopping bag!

Hi Laura
Thanks so much for your review - Lovely to hear you have so many uses for it!
Best wishes

Fantastic product

So impressed with this essential item for a pushchair! Helps block out any sunlight from babies eyes whilst allowing adults to still check baby either at the side or through the zip mechanism. Love it so much my Mum also bought one for the pushchair at her house! Customer service from Cara was also fantastic, defiantly recommend!

A must for all buggies and prams

I have used this on a bassinet pram, over the car seat and a buggy with the seat lying all the way flat during summer and in Greece to protect my new born, and I must say it is absolutely brilliant. It not only protects them from the sun, it keeps the area underneath cooler, the peep hole is so handy to check in on them too. It's easy to use and adapt to all prams and buggies and the handy bag for storage is so neat. I wish I'd had this for my first child rather than to fiddly awkward parasols, this is waaaay better
