Product information
Fitting & safety

 How does SnoozeShade for Travel Cots work? This portable blackout canopy fits easily over most standard rectangular travel cots (up to 106cm in length x 75cm wide) to create a safe and cosy space for your baby or toddler. Our air-permeable fabric 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 total game-changer when 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 Travel Cots is suitable from birth and can be used right up until your child outgrows their travel cot.

Will it help my child sleep when we’re away from home? The science behind SnoozeShade 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. 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. SnoozeShade for Travel Cots is used in the childcare facilities of all Mark Warner European holiday resorts.

What are the windows for? SnoozeShade for Travel 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 travel 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 Travel 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 travel cot? SnoozeShade for Travel Cots fits ALL standard rectangular travel cots sized up to 106cm long x 75cm wide (this is the industry standard and they tend to take a mattress sized 95cm x 65cm). We've tested it on cots from Graco, Hauck, Joie, Bugaboo Stardust and many more!

It also fits triangular-style travel cribs from BabyBjorn, Nuna Sena, Guava Lotus, BabyLo, Venture, Phil & Teds and more. These models tend to be longer (up to 112cm) but narrower so SnoozeShade for Travel Cots will fit. You can see photos of how it fits onto triangular travel cots here.

If your rectangular travel cot is longer than 106cm, check out SnoozeShade for Cots & Mini Cot Beds instead.

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

1. Throw it over your travel cot, ensuring the section with the top panel is covering the top of your cot.

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

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

Why SnoozeShade for Travel 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.

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. 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).

Snooze shade wins again!

We have previously purchased the snooze shade deluxe for our buggy which we have been using since my 15 month old daughter was a new born. It has worked wonders while out and about, keeping to nap schedules. We have just purchased the SnoozeShade for our travel cot and equally as pleased! This now gives us peace in mind that our daughter will be secure and the darkness again helps her sleep while not in her room back home. We will continue to rave about this company!

Wow!

Wow - I went from a 8 month old baby refusing to sleep in a travel cot as he was busy checking out his new surroundings, to a baby who now passes out within a few minutes.

The only difference was using the Snooze Shade for travel cots, which meant he couldn’t look around anymore. I have a two week holiday coming up with the family and I’m no longer dreading what I feared was my son’s inability to sleep in a travel cot. Thanks again!

Not really for Chicco Next2Me

We are not allowed to have curtains in our flat, so I bought the SnoozeShade for Travel Cots to put over our Chicco Next2Me. I know the SnoozeShade is breathable, but maybe from the way the Next2Me is made (with "solid" sides, and not mesh like in a Pack n Play), after leaving our baby inside for 2 minutes, I opened it and felt that the air inside was warmer and stuffier, so it didn't feel right leaving it closed, even less on sunny days when our flat heats up very quickly. I'm trying to find a way to attach the snoozeshade so that more air comes in (using chairs around the next2me) but I haven't found the perfect solution yet..
Other than this, I like the idea of the SnoozeShade (we have the pushchair version as well for when we go out) when it's impossible to make a room darker.
