How does it work? SnoozeShade Original creates a comfortingly dark space that encourages naps by boosting melatonin. When your baby naturally stirs at the end of their sleep cycle, our unique mesh 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 protect from 99% of UV rays.

What's the snooze mode? Use SnoozeShade Original to completely cover your pram or stroller when it’s time for an on-the-go nap. This creates a sleep-friendly environment that blurs distractions and shuts out 94% of light. A sleeping-baby emblem deters people from disturbing your baby, while the sneak-a-peek zip means you can check on them without letting in too much light.

What's the shade mode? Attach SnoozeShade to the hood and handle of your pram or stroller to create an overhead canopy that shades baby from 99% of UV rays. With a stroller, you can also position it to cover just your baby’s legs – ideal when they’re dressed for summer.

Why should I keep my baby out of the sun? Babies under six months must be kept completely out of direct sunlight as their skin is too sensitive for sunscreen and contains very little melanin, which means they burn more easily.

Will it help my baby sleep? SnoozeShade can be used from birth to help you establish a nap routine without being stuck at home. When in snooze mode, it works like a portable blackout blind to create a sleep-friendly space, blocking out 94% of light and blurring distractions. It’s recommended by baby-sleep experts worldwide, and when used regularly, it becomes a sleep cue that helps your child learn when it’s naptime.

What age is it suitable for? We recommend SnoozeShade Original from birth to six months because it’s proportioned for a smaller baby who is mostly lying flat. If you have an older child who is sitting up and wants to see out of their stroller, you’ll find SnoozeShade Plus or SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe is a better fit.

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.

One question we get asked a lot is what is the difference between the Original and the Original Deluxe, so we've created a helpful chart:

Will it fit my pram or stroller? Yes! SnoozeShade Original fits any single-width pram or stroller with a hood, including jogging strollers. We’ve even seen them used on bike trailers and festival trolleys! You don’t need to worry about the type of pram you have – simply choose the SnoozeShade that suits the age of your child.

Can I use it with a travel system? Yes, you can use SnoozeShade Original with an infant carrier as part of a travel system. Use it to safely cover your baby at naptime or attach it to the hood and handle to extend the sun canopy. 

Do I need to leave it on my pram or stroller all the time? No, SnoozeShade Original 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 stroller basket.

How does it attach to my stroller? It literally takes seconds! The soft mesh, elasticated sides and stretchy straps make SnoozeShade effortless to fit. Here are our top tips:

  1. SnoozeShade Original has six 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 pram/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 carrycot or seat. It’s fine to stretch the straps – they’re designed to extend as needed.
  3. Pull the hood of the pram 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.

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 stroller. 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 worldwide safety standards. Every component is suitable from newborn, including our zips and straps.

Wow!

I recently purchased the Snoozeshade, and I am absolutely thrilled with its performance. This product deserves a solid 5 stars for its exceptional ability to block out the sun while allowing for excellent air flow. My baby sleeps peacefully, shielded from harsh sunlight, yet remains comfortable with the well-designed ventilation. It's a game-changer for on-the-go naps, and I highly recommend it to any parent seeking a reliable and breathable sunshade.

Game changer for naps on the go!

We LOVE our SnoozeShade! When needing to be out and about across my newborn’s nap time, this has been so helpful to minimise distractions for my very alert baby to be able to nap on the go. We have a Babybee Duo3 pram with bassinet and the SnoozeShade original fits perfectly and the added velcro straps help to keep it all in place. So glad we came across this product which I have already recommended to others.

The snooze shade

I bought this product for my baby boy as he was born in the summer I was recommended this friend great value for money blocks out the sun very well my baby has not got sunburnt once its great Quality its also very easy to take on and if its very light and easy to fold up and put under the pram it looks amazing on the pram I think its a fashion statement these days also has an amazing performance on staying on the pram it has little straps at each corner for you to clip on to the buggy but I prefer not to strap it and it still works out perfect

Highly highly recommend

Bought this hoping to keep the sun out our newborns eyes but it has served us in more ways than this.

It is great at keeping the sun out and really helps keep her calm when out and about. She is able to nap without being disturbed by light and guilty as charged has saved us having to tell people to politely go away, as she's nicely concealed from people who can be a bit too friendly.

The 6 velcro straps have made it so universally friendly and we have had no issues with securing it to either her car seat or Bassinet depending on what we use on her pram base (it's a travel system style pram).

Would absolutely recommend to anyone, especially a nervous parent who wants to protect baby from the sun, help them sleep whilst still being able to live life or just avoid having people you don't know all up in your space or your child's space.
