How does SnoozeShade for Cots make life easier for parents?

✔️ Staying with family or friends and discover there are no curtains in your child’s room? No problem! SnoozeShade is the portable solution that instantly turns your cot or travel cot into a comfortingly dark, sleep-friendly space, even if there's bright sunshine outside.

✔️ Room-sharing with your baby or toddler on holiday? SnoozeShade blocks out 94% of light and blurs distractions, so your child won’t be disturbed by you moving around the room or leaving the lights on.

✔️ It’s so simple to fit! Simply throw SnoozeShade over the cot, pull it down over the frame and secure the corner straps around the feet or wheels – job done!

✔️ Our scientifically tested mesh fabric is completely air permeable and safe to use (unlike draping a muslin or blanket over the cot), giving you complete peace of mind.

✔️ The zip-close top panel means you can sneak a peek at your sleeping beauty without disturbing them.

How does SnoozeShade for Cots work? This portable blackout canopy fits easily over standard-size European cots and larger travel cots to create a cosy space for your baby or toddler. Made from air-permeable fabric that lets air flow freely, it safely blocks out 94% of light and blurs distractions, helping your child switch off and go to sleep in unfamiliar or bright surroundings. It's a must-have accessory for 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 Cots is suitable from birth and can be used right up until your child outgrows their cot or travel cot.

Will it help my child sleep? The science behind SnoozeShade for 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.

What are the windows for? SnoozeShade for 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 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 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 cot? SnoozeShade for Cots fits all standard-size European cots and larger travel cots. The size of your mattress is the important bit! If your mattress measures up to 120 x 60cm, SnoozeShade for Cots will fit.

If you have a smaller travel cot or one of the triangular-style options with a mattress up to 95 x 65cm, you'll find SnoozeShade for Travel Cots a better fit.

How does it attach to my cot? SnoozeShade for Cots is fast and effortless to fit. Here are our top tips:

1. Throw it over your cot or travel cot, ensuring the section with the large top panel is at the top.

2. Pull it down around all sides of the cot frame.

3. Attach the stretchy straps around the feet or wheels of your cot. Make sure the Velcro pads overlap to form a loop.

Why SnoozeShade for 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.

Unlike a blanket or muslin, SnoozeShade’s 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).

A Must if you Share your bedroom!!

Purchased this Snooze Shade for my 6mo Sons Cot who is in the same room as us. We have black out blinds but still some light some does come through the side of the blinds early hours and this seems to disturb him and he wakes around 4/5/6 each morning. Since using this Snooze Shade he hasn’t woke any earlier than 7/8ish in the morning! It’s amazing wish we knew about this before! Also have the Pram shade and we love this thank you!

Love having an extra layer of darkness

We have both the pram and cot snoozeshades.

We use the pram shade with the uppababy vista and baby zen yoyo. It works pretty well with both. When using with the uppababy, the shade on the pram can’t be pulled all the way down which is a shame as this provides an extra layer of protection against any outside distractions. But it fits well and is easy to get our daughter in and out.

The yoyo is smaller so it isn’t a perfect fit but it works well enough. Annoyingly with the yoyo, when the shade is pulled down there is a clear window in the top of the shade which the snooze shade doesn’t cover so light can still get in unless you cover with something else.

The cot cover has been great for travelling. It takes a while to get used to not being able to see our baby but it has been so useful in hotel rooms when we can’t fully blackout the windows. It also means we can still move around the room using some light without disturbing her

Back to a good night’s sleep

We thought it was the 4 month regression... turns out it was just the sunrise! Our very good sleeper is back to being just that.

Thank you for the review, happy to hear your little one is enjoying their sleep again.
Best wishes,

Essential for rooming with baby!

This has been great when we’re away and having to share a room with our son (now 1yp). - means he can’t see us, and stops him getting distracted by being in a new place, as well as keeping the cot dim enough for him to sleep well. Also useful at friends houses where there are no curtains or lots of light still coming in. Often I leave the top unzipped, or open the top once he’s asleep - both so I can check on him and because, although it’s breathable, the temperature does rise in the cot with it on and having the top open at least means the warm air can go up and out. Not so much an issue in winter here but On holiday in Portugal recently when it was very hot in our room we had a fan blowing down through it, and the video monitor set up to be able to see him. We use it at my in-laws a lot and there i’ve Even zipped the monitor camera into the corner with the top closed so that we can still see him. It’s a bit close up but works ok!
