The Lullaby Trust tells us that it's not safe to cover your baby's pushchair or buggy with blankets and muslins. So how do you protect your little one from sun, rain, wind, bugs AND create a comfortable dark nap environment ?

Introducing SnoozeShade Plus Extra, the new improved version of the award-winning SnoozeShade Plus buggy sun and sleep shade that has been keeping babies safe since 2010.

Created by a Mum, this innovative solution:

✔️ Blocks up to 99% of UV rays (UPF 50+) so your baby's delicate skin and eyes are safely protected from the sun's harmful effects.

✔️ SnoozeShade's scientifically tested air permeable mesh enables optimal air flow to match The Lullaby Trust's guidance to only use a cover that allows air to circulate easily.

✔️ Creates a safe sleep environment for on-the-go naps having been tested for CO2 rebreathing (a SIDS risk) and direct suffocation (and passed with flying colours).

✔️ Provides a protective barrier that stops bugs, mosquitoes and midges getting to your baby.

This air-permeable buggy shade:

  • exceeds UK safety standards
  • is compatible with any single-width pushchair or buggy with a hood
  • will last until your child outgrows their buggy

"Best baby purchase I’ve made! I bought this to stop the faff of constantly having to move the sun visor we had when out walking and also to try and encourage my little one to sleep longer. So far it has a 100% success rate!"

"My baby hates not being able to see out of their buggy"

That’s the very reason SnoozeShade founder Cara invented SnoozeShade Plus (and has updated it to Extra)! After creating SnoozeShade Original to protect her baby daughter, Cara was dismayed to find that once Holly was sitting up in the stroller seat she was suddenly much less happy to have her view of the world restricted!

So, she put her inventor’s hat back on and developed SnoozeShade Plus Extra, complete with its built-in see-through window and sleep-inducing blackout panel.

You can have the best of both worlds:

✔️ When your child is awake, you can uncover the window to let them watch the world go by while still being protected from the sun – we call this 'shade mode'.

✔️ When it's time for that all-important nap, zip up the outer window to convert to 'snooze mode', giving your baby their sleep cue and the perfect environment for a long, undisturbed sleep.



All about SnoozeShade Plus Extra

SnoozeShade Plus fits absolutely any single-width pushchair with a hood. And it takes just seconds to attach! 

  • air In shade mode, your child is protected from 99% of UV rays from above, behind and the sides, but there’s a front window they can see out of.
  • air The window is a single layer of our air-permeable mesh, which blocks 80% of the sun’s harmful rays and keeps wind, light rain and bugs at bay.
  • air For snooze mode, pull up the outer blackout panel to transform your buggy into a comfortingly dark space that’s perfect for an on-the-go nap.
  • air With the snooze panel up, your child is protected from 99% of UV from every angle.

Why do I need a sunshade when it's cloudy?

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends that we ALL seek shade when UV levels are above 3 - and that definitely includes our little ones who can't shade themselves. Even on a cloudy day, UV can pass through clouds so don't rely on whether you can see the sun. UV doesn't just come from above and is reflected by water, sand and concrete.

So how do I know when shade is needed?

Luckily, modern technology is our friend! The easiest way to check your local UV levels is to use a weather app on your phone as most have UV monitors included. It will also tell you what hours you need shade (often between 10am and 5pm but refer to the weather app for exact guidance). If UV levels are over 3 then you need to think about creating shade for your little one when you're out and about.

Better than breathable

Unlike a blanket or muslin, our mesh fabric has been independently tested and proven to be air permeable – which means air passes through it easily.

There is no danger that your baby's ability to breathe will be affected. In fact, if you hold a SnoozeShade up to your face you'll see you can breathe comfortably (now try that with a blanket, coat or muslin).

Our fabric and design features match advice from The Lullaby Trust on safer sleep and pram coverings.

Every part is safe enough for a newborn

A product like SnoozeShade is only required by law to be safe enough for a 3-year-old, because the product is actually being used by the parent, not the child.

But that wasn't safe enough for Cara

Every SnoozeShade is designed to meet the same safety regulations as a toy for a newborn baby. This is the highest standard possible. Our safety features include the following:

  • Short straps so no risk of strangulation or entrapment
  • Strong zips that won't break – even under heavy loads
  • Absolutely no toxic nasties or chemicals in any component
  • Non-flammable (does not ignite) fabric
  • Maximum sun protection (UPF50+)

    SnoozeShade fabric blocks up to 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays – which is rate the highest level of sun protection - UPF50+.
    Not only does it protect your baby’s delicate skin, but it also shades their sensitive eyes and gives you complete confidence to get out and about in the sun.

    Check in on baby easily

    No product on earth can replace parental supervision to keep your baby safe.

    That's why all SnoozeShade products feature a sneak-a-peek zip, so you can quickly and easily check on your sleeping beauty without letting in too much light and waking them.

    Fabulous

    "As an anxious parent with a summer baby this product made me feel confident to take little one out and about in the sunny summer weather. I never left the house without it! Used with the buggy when we went on holiday, it worked great as I could roll down the top layer allowing little one to see (she doesn’t like being kept in the dark!) but still providing UV protection."

    –Kim
    Amazing!!

    "This is an absolute must-have for sun holidays – we would have been lost without it. It is so easy to use, lightweight and provides brilliant coverage!"

    –Rachel

    ""

    Well worth it!

    "This has been a game changer for helping our daughter nap whilst out, and protecting her from the sun. We absolutely love it and don't know what we did without it!"

    –Robyn
    Life saviour!

    "Bought the SnoozeShade for our holiday and it was amazing – baby napped in the shade while we could enjoy the sun! Been using back home as well, it’s great for day naps when I’m out running errands. Thanks so much."

    –Jodie
    Best holiday buy

    "We are currently on holiday with our 3 month old and our SnoozeShade was the best purchase we've made! It takes away all the stress of keeping baby out of the sun and all the support emails are fantastic. I have already recommended this to a number of our friends!"

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Here you'll find Cara's answers to some of our most-received questions, but if there's anything else you'd like to know please reach out – we'd be delighted to help.

    What sun protection does SnoozeShade Plus provide?
    SnoozeShade Plus can be used in shade mode to shield your child from 80% of UV rays while still allowing them to see out through the inner window, which is made from a single panel of our innovative mesh. In this mode, SnoozeShade Plus will also protect from wind, light rain and pesky insects.

    When it’s time for a buggy nap, convert your SnoozeShade Plus to snooze mode by zipping up the outer panel (an extra layer of air-permeable mesh). This snooze panel covers the inner window to create a sleep-friendly environment that blurs distractions, shuts out 94% of light and blocks 99% of UV rays (UPF 50+).

    While other sunshades claim to offer UPF50+ protection, many have transparent panels. This won’t offer the same level of sun protection, as UV rays can get in. Remember, if you can clearly see your baby through the fabric, so can the sun!

    Our fabric is completely unique to us and has been independently scientifically tested, scoring highly for air permeability, which means air flows freely through it and your little one is completely safe underneath it.

    Our clever child-safe zips allow you to check on your baby frequently without letting in too much light or exposing them to the sun.
    Why is SnoozeShade black, doesn't that attract heat?

    The colour of a fabric has little to do with how hot it gets, but there are lots of great reasons why our fabric looks the way that it does:

    • SnoozeShade is made from air-permeable mesh with lots of small holes that allow fresh air to circulate easily

    • SnoozeShade’s fabric has been tested multiple times by well-respected, independent laboratories and scores highly for air permeability

    • Black is the best colour for UV protection, as it blocks the most UV rays. This means our fabric doesn't need any chemical treatment

    To find out more about how SnoozeShade’s fabric keeps your baby protected and happy, read this piece, which we wrote with the help of one of the UK’s leading thermal physicists to explain the science behind the 'colour and heat' question.

    What is air-permeable fabric?

    Our unique fabric is actually better than breathable. It's air permeable.

    The term breathability is often used incorrectly. It's actually a term that refers to how well a fabric wicks moisture away from the skin, which is why it's often used to describe sportswear. Air permeability is all about how easily air moves through something.

    A fabric that's ‘breathable’ is not necessarily air permeable. For your baby to be safe beneath a sunshade it MUST be made from air-permeable fabric. Avoid cheap copies and buy the safety-tested best.

    I'm also proud to say that a new test for suffocation and CO2 rebreathing was developed and our mesh fabric passed both tests with flying colours!

    How does using SnoozeShade help my baby and I?

    SnoozeShade is a portable sunshade for families on the go, allowing you to get out and about while keeping your baby safely protected from the sun's UV rays.

    It’s the only baby sunshade to be endorsed by international baby-sleep experts, be approved by the Melanoma International Foundation, and to have won more than 80 awards – including Mother & Baby Gold for Innovation, Dadsnet Gold and Made for Mums Gold.

    Cara says: “Until I invented SnoozeShade, the only option for parents was to throw makeshift items like blankets or muslins over the pushchair. These aren’t always made of air-permeable fabric, don’t provide sun protection and may simply fly off at the slightest breeze. You also have to lift them to check on your baby, letting in light that wakes them up.”

    SnoozeShade & safety testing

    I invented SnoozeShade to use with my own daughter, which means safety has always been my number one priority.

    For me, safety comes first above all else, and I am proud that SnoozeShade is a ‘function over fashion’ product. I won’t compromise on safety and I put SnoozeShade through regular and rigorous safety testing – including tests that aren't compulsory. Head to our blog to find out more.
