Made from a special soft air-permeable fabric, it gives maximum sun protection from the sun's harmful UV rays. It blocks 99% of UVA and UVB (UPF50+) and can be used safely indoors and outside.
Did you know that doctors worldwide recommend babies under 6 months are kept out of direct sunlight completely. Their skin is too delicate for sunscreen and has too little melanin so they will burn more easily (SkinCancer.org). Just one instance of sunburn as a baby increases risk of skin cancer by 50% and five instances increases that risk to 80%. SnoozeShade Original makes it easy to keep baby shaded from the sun by blocking 99% of UVA and UVB
Safety is at the heart of SnoozeShade
SnoozeShade was invented by a mum so they don’t skimp when it comes to safety. All their products are designed to exceed required safety standards. Most products only need to meet the safety standards for 3 years old whereas they design to be safe enough for a newborn baby.
Our unique scientifically-tested soft mesh is better than breathable (a much misused word) - it's air-permeable - this means air passes easily through it. There is also a sneak-peek zips so parents can check in quickly and easily on their baby.
Helps babies get the sleep they need
A baby who sleeps during the day sleeps better at night - this is because daytime naps reduces the cortisol in baby’s blood which means they go to sleep more easily at bedtime. Use SnoozeShade from birth as a stroller sun shade and a blackout cover to help establish a healthy sleep routine without you being stuck at home
Easier and safer than a blanket or muslin
SnoozeShade Original creates shade and protects baby from wind, chill, insects, mosquitos. midges and even light rain. Small and lightweight it attaches easily with stretchy straps and elasticated sides and comes with a FREE storage bag. It’s great for everyday, holidays, shopping trips, days out, in restaurants or any time baby has to get some sleep in the stroller or needs extra shade from the sun.
SnoozeShade has won 70+ awards over the last ten years and is approved by the Melanoma International Foundation. Parents often find when they start to use SnoozeShade regularly, it becomes a sleep trigger for their child in the same way that shutting the curtains in the nursery is a signal that it is sleep time. Our sleeping baby emblem also deters well-meaning people from disturbing or touching your sleeping baby.
Why Original is for 0-6 months:
SnoozeShade recommend SnoozeShade Original for babies from 0-6 months as it is sized for use with carrycots and for little legs and it is designed so baby cannot see out of it when awake (as they will be most likely lying flat).
However every child is different and so it depends on what you want your SnoozeShade for. If it's just for sleep and nothing else then the Original can work for longer - it all depends on your child.
If your little one is sitting upright and wants to look out when awake then we recommend the SnoozeShade Plus or SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe which are much bigger and will last until your little one is out of the buggy. It is perfectly safe to use a Plus or Plus Deluxe with a carrycot - it will just look a bit baggier.
