😴 Giving up and accepting that if the sun’s awake, you’re all awake!

This portable blackout canopy fits easily over portacots and travel cribs up to 106cm long (the industry standard), instantly creating a safe, sleep-friendly space – even if there's bright sunshine outside. Our scientifically tested, air-permeable fabric blocks 94% of light and blurs distractions, so your little one won’t be disturbed by you moving around the room or leaving the lights on.

Product information
Fitting & safety

 

How does SnoozeShade for Portacots work? This portable blackout canopy fits easily over most standard rectangular portacots (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 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 Portacots is suitable from birth and can be used right up until your child outgrows their portacot. 

Will it fit my portacot? It fits ALL standard rectangular portacots 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 at the base (up to 112cm) but narrower at the top, so SnoozeShade stretches to fit. If you need any personalised advice, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

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 camping trips.

What are the windows for? SnoozeShade for Portacots features two single-layer mesh windows (one on 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 portacot. 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 Portacots 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.



 

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

1. Throw it over your portacot, ensuring the section with the top panel covers 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 portacot. Make sure the Velcro pads overlap to form a loop.

Why SnoozeShade for Portacots 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 stroller. SnoozeShade Original has since become the world’s favourite sun and sleep shade for strollers, and the SnoozeShade range has expanded to include blackout shades for car seats, twin buggies, cots and portacots.

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. 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).
