Product Description
Fitting tips & product FAQs

How does SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats work? It 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 provide safe UV protection.

Many parents have said SnoozeShade deters people from uninvitedly touching their baby, which can be a worry before they’ve had their jabs. We’ve added a ‘please don’t touch’ label to the front as an extra deterrent!

What is the snooze mode? When you want to completely shade your baby or encourage sleep, fasten both the inner and outer panels of your SnoozeShade. Our fabric blocks 99% of UV, 94% of light and blurs distractions to help babies switch off. The sneak-a-peek zip allows you to check on them without letting in light.

What is the shade mode? When baby is awake, you can use your SnoozeShade as a car-seat sunshade by tucking the snooze panel into the integrated pocket. This reveals a single-layer mesh window that blocks 80% of UV but allows your baby to see out. You can't see clearly through the shade panel from outside, but you can open the two-way zip either partially or fully for a clearer view of your baby. The shade panel can also be tucked away in the integrated front pocket if you’re not using it.

When in shade mode, your baby is still fully protected overhead and at the back and sides by a double layer of mesh that blocks 99% of UV (UPF 50+). 

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, so they burn easily. The Skin Cancer Foundation says incidents of sunburn during childhood multiply the risk of one day developing skin cancer. SnoozeShade is the ONLY infant car-seat canopy approved by the Melanoma International Foundation.

Will SnoozeShade help my baby nap? SnoozeShade is recommended by baby-sleep experts because it works like a portable blackout blind, creating a sleep-friendly space and acting as a cue for naptime. Daytime naps reduce cortisol levels, which helps babies fall asleep more easily at night – good news for everyone!

SnoozeShade also makes it easier to transfer baby from the car without waking them, because they’re not startled by a sudden change in light or air temperature. If you’re travelling at night, it can help your baby sleep by blocking out bright lights.

What age is it for? SnoozeShade can be used from birth until your baby outgrows the car seat at around nine months.

Is SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats machine washable? Of course – it was invented by a mum! All SnoozeShades are machine washable at 30° and can be tumble dried on a low heat.

Will it fit my car seat? SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats will fit any Group 0 or 0+ infant car seat with a rigid carry handle. It has been tried and tested on popular infant carriers by Maxi-Cosi, Cosatto, Graco, Chicco, Britax, Doona, Concord and more. 

How does it attach to my car seat? SnoozeShade attaches in seconds. The soft mesh, elasticated sides and stretchy straps make it super easy – even with one hand!

1. If your car seat has an integrated hood, push it all the way back.

2. Make sure the handle is in the upright position and wrap the two top straps around it, securing with the Velcro pads.

3. Pull the elasticated edges of the SnoozeShade over the front and back of your car seat.

You can find full instructions for fitting SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats here. If you need any personalised advice on fitting or using your SnoozeShade please get in touch.

Do I need to leave SnoozeShade on my car seat? Many parents simply leave it installed. It’s easy to lift your baby in and out through the front panel, and you can still carry the car seat by its handle with SnoozeShade in place. If you prefer to remove it, SnoozeShade packs down into a compact storage bag, included free with every order.

Why SnoozeShade is safe to use: SnoozeShade was invented by Cara Sayer – a safety-obsessed mum who wanted 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 air permeable, which means air passes through it freely both indoors and outdoors. Hold a SnoozeShade up to your face and you’ll find you can breathe comfortably.

All our products exceed UK, European and US safety standards. Our fabric is not chemically treated and every component is safe enough for a newborn, including our zips, straps and poppers (the world’s only certified baby-safe poppers).

Medical professionals recommend babies spend as little time as possible in infant carriers, as the healthiest position for them is lying flat. It goes without saying that a child should never be left unattended in a car, even for a moment. Always ensure there is air movement in the car.

It is brilliant.

It is brilliant. We used the snooze shade on the tube both as a cover and to help add a layer of protection for our baby whilst on public transport. It provides us comfort knowing there is a layer shielding him from the public (sad times we live in!). Brilliant product. Thank you!
