SnoozeShade Original is the UK’s favourite pram and pushchair shade for babies from birth to six months. Made from better-than-breathable mesh fabric that lets air flow freely, it safely protects your baby from 99% of UVA and UVB rays (UPF 50+) and helps them sleep soundly while you’re out and about.
This award-winning sun and sleep shade attaches in seconds to absolutely any single-width pram, pushchair or travel system with a hood.
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 pushchair 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 pushchair to create an overhead canopy that shades baby from 99% of UV rays. With a pushchair 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 6 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 pushchair, 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.
