Why do parents call SnoozeShade a game changer?

✔️ It creates a sleep-friendly environment for your little one, giving you the freedom to leave the house without disrupting their nap routine. (Because no parent wants an overtired child on their hands come bedtime!)

✔️ You can enjoy sunny days outside while protecting your child from harmful UV rays when they’re in the buggy.

✔️ You have the peace of mind of knowing our mesh fabric is completely air permeable – unlike a muslin or blanket draped over the pushchair.

✔️ Our sneak-a-peek zip makes it quick and easy to check on your sleeping baby without disturbing them.

✔️ It’s super versatile! Use it in snooze mode for naps or in shade mode to protect your child from the sun while they enjoy the sights.

Product information
Fitting & safety

How does SnoozeShade Plus work? SnoozeShade Plus creates a comfortingly dark space that encourages naps by boosting melatonin (the sleepy hormone) and blurring distractions. When your child 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 Plus can be used in snooze mode or shade mode, both of which provide UV protection.

What is the shade mode? 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.

Please note the inner window does not open. If you would prefer both front panels to fully open, SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe would be a better option.

What is the snooze mode? 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+).

A sleeping-baby emblem deters people from disturbing your child, while the sneak-a-peek zip means you can discreetly check on your sleeping beauty without letting in too much light.

When the snooze panel is not in use, simply roll it up and secure it with the integrated straps to stop it snagging on your wheels.

Will SnoozeShade Plus help my child nap? When in snooze mode, SnoozeShade Plus works like a portable blackout blind, creating a sleep-friendly space by blocking out 94% of light and blurring distractions. It’s recommended by baby-sleep experts worldwide, because when used regularly it acts as a sleep cue, helping your child learn when it’s nap time in the same way shutting the curtains in their nursery does.

What age is it for? We recommend SnoozeShade Plus for babies from six months, because it’s proportioned to fit pushchairs and strollers when your little one is sitting up and wants to see out. If you’re looking for a SnoozeShade for a smaller baby in a carry cot, you’ll find SnoozeShade Original is a better fit.

You can continue using SnoozeShade Plus as long as your child is in their pushchair. Our founder, Cara, still used hers occasionally when her daughter was five!

Is SnoozeShade Plus 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. 

Differences between SnoozeShade Plus and SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe

 

Will it fit my pushchair? Yes! SnoozeShades are all universally sized and fit all single-width buggies and pushchairs 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 pushchair you have and whether it will fit. Simply choose the SnoozeShade that suits the age of your child.

How does SnoozeShade Plus attach to my pushchair? SnoozeShade Plus attaches to absolutely any buggy in seconds. The soft mesh, elasticated sides and stretchy straps make it effortless to fit. Here are our top tips:

1. SnoozeShade Plus has eight 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 stroller 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 stroller. It’s fine to stretch the straps – they’re designed to extend as needed.

3. Pull the hood of the buggy 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.

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

Do I need to leave it on my pushchair all the time? No, SnoozeShade Plus 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.

Why SnoozeShade is safe to use: SnoozeShade was invented by Cara Sayer – a safety-obsessed mum who wanted a solution to help her daughter sleep soundly and stay protected from the sun 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 safety standards and are approved by the Melanoma International Foundation. Our fabric is not treated with any chemicals and every component is safe enough for a newborn, including our zips and straps.

Very effective at getting my little one to sleep by eliminating distractions. Looking forward to using it when we go abroad.

Love it!!

I had the 0-6 month snoozeshade with my first baby 8 years ago and just remembered it again now with my 3rd, I’ve bought the 6 month plus this time around and can’t recommend it enough. Having just transferred my little one from carry cot to buggy it really helps cut out any distractions for him at nap time and stops my older 2 peeping in and waking him up too!

Brilliant Product!

I wanted something that would help protect my baby from the sun without using a bulky parasol and that would be useful to help him sleep when we go on holiday abroad soon - this does just the trick! I love the zip window so I can check on him regularly and the front panel is great for blocking the sun but baby still feels like he can see us.

It is quite big as it’s universal but fits our icandy peach pram fine, it just looks a little baggy and unattractive! There aren’t many places to attach the Velcro straps but that’s down to the design of the pram rather than the snoozeshade. I’m hoping it will fit a buggy too for when we go away. The only thing is that on a really hot day, it did feel very warm underneath the snoozeshade so I had to take it off. For this reason I am a little hesitant about using it abroad for too long each time. However, I would definitely recommend this if you’re after a decent sun cover and to help encourage pram naps!

Hi Eve

Thanks for your recommendation!
Just to put your mind at rest all our products are made from an air-permeable mesh so air passes through easily but it blocks the sun. It will be the same temperature under the shade as outside.
If you wanted to contact us directly, I would be happy to offer you further fitting tips if you felt you needed them.

Best baby item I’ve bought!

Before I used the snooze shade my baby would take about 1/2 hour to fall to sleep in the pram now it only takes about 5 minutes.
Also without it his naps in the pram would usually only last 30 mins max and that’s if I avoided noise or distractions (which is very difficult!) but now they can last closer to an hour!
It really is one of the best….if not the best item I bought for my baby….I wish I’d have heard about it and bought one sooner

Hi JT

Thanks for your review! So lovely to hear it is one of the best items you bought for your baby. We so appreciate this feedback.

Best wishes
