Safety comes first at SnoozeShade
Our safety standards
SnoozeShade was invented by a mum who has gone above and beyond to ensure her products are as safe as possible. The industry standard for these type of products are that they are designed to be safe enough for a 3 year old to use.
Uniquely, all SnoozeShade products are designed to be safe enough for a newborn. This means no long straps, magnets, toggles, buttons, strong zips and nothing that could endanger a baby or toddler.
Keep your baby or toddler safe in the shade
Doctors worldwide recommend that babies under 6 months are kept completely out of direct sunlight or have minimal exposure when UV levels are safe (below 3).
Just one instance of sunburn as a baby increases the risk of developing skin cancer by 50% and five instances increase it by 80%. Heat stroke is caused by 3 things - humidity (70%), UV rays (20%) and temperature (10%) so again shading baby from the sun helps significantly reduce this risk.
Our air-permeable mesh blocks between 80-99% of UV.
Why mesh is best
Our unique air-permeable mesh is safer than using a natural fibre product which can trap heat, especially when it's humid. Air-permeable (which means air passes through it easily) is better than breathable (which refers to moisture wicking qualities). Our fabric is scientifically tested and has no chemical additives.
I want a pram SnoozeShade - which one do I need?
This is one of our most frequent questions. We want you to find the right product for you and your little one and it's not the pram or stroller that dictates which product is best - it's your little one's sitting position. As every baby is different, we use age ranges as a rough guide:
For 0-6 months (or while baby is lying flat in the pram) - you need SnoozeShade Original. Use it as an overhead canopy to give complete shade (instead of an umbrella that will only cover some parts). Used as a portable blackout blind for your pram, it will also help to establish healthy sleep habits from the get go.
For 6 months+ (or once baby is sitting up confidently in the stroller) your best option is SnoozeShade Plus or Plus Deluxe. The Plus models are much larger than the Original to allow for growing toddlers' legs and bigger strollers. Both have a window that baby can see out of when awake and a snooze panel that can be used to keep naps on track.
SnoozeShade makes parents' lives easier
SnoozeShade was invented by British mum Cara, who needed a safe and simple way to help her baby daughter to nap on-the-go. The first product - SnoozeShade Original - was launched in March 2010 and since then our products have made life easier for hundreds of thousands of parents worldwide.
