This product is subject to specific safety warnings
SnoozeShade Original was invented by a British mum to help babies and toddlers sleep when they are out and about in the pram or pushchair.
It’s a fantastic sun shade (it blocks 99% of UV) that also keeps little ones protected from wind, chill, insects, cats and even light rain. No more blankets thrown over the buggy!
Use from from birth to make shopping trips, special occasions and meals out with a baby easier. It’s a great holiday and travel accessory that is as useful as you want it to be - many parents tell us that they love it so much that they carry on using it when then get home.
With regular use SnoozeShade becomes a sleep trigger and when it goes on the pram your baby knows it’s naptime.
SnoozeShade is recommended by the world's top baby experts, doctors and midwives because it helps babies get the sleep they need when out. Daytime naps lower cortisol levels in baby's blood which, if not reduced by bedtime, will keep baby awake and wired just when they need to sleep.
Safety is Number One at SnoozeShade
Our fabric is a specially designed air-permeable mesh (this means air can pass through) and much safer than a blanket or similar items. There are no long straps and all materials used are tested to withstand the same treatment as a toy to ensure they are as safe as possible.
Other features include:
* Front sneak-a-peek zip lets you check in without letting in lots of light
* Sleeping baby emblem that lets other people know that baby is not to be disturbed
*Storage bag included
Easy to attach and simple to remove SnoozeShade can be adjusted for full cover at naptime, angled to block the sun overhead (particularly useful for flat-lying prams) and provides shade or protects little legs from the sun.
For toddlers aged 9-12 months and older (or those who are particularly nosy) we recommend the Plus model as baby can sit up and see the view.
Parents use words like 'lifesaver' and godsend' to describe their SnoozeShade when we asked over 300 of our customers, 9 out of 10 said they would recommend to a friend.
Jo Tantum, one of the UK's leading baby sleep experts, recommends SnoozeShade to her clients and we have many health and medical professionals who buy for themselves and know that a well-rested baby is a happy baby which makes the whole family's life easier.

Many parents tell us they started using SnoozeShade when they were going on holiday and worried about upsetting baby's routine. Great for day trips, evening meals out and if delayed in an airport. Bst of all they also tell us that they keep using it when they're home as it has made such a difference.

Helps babies sleep
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
As a new mum, I became frustrated when I needed to be out of the house when it was my baby daughter's naptime. I ended up either a) having an over tired grumpy child who then couldn't sleep at night as she was too tired to sleep or b) hanging items like blankets or muslins over the pram to try and encourage her to sleep which ended up distracting her more than calming her. I needed something that was small, lightweight and portable that would fit any of my buggies and would protect her from the elements when we were out and about. I wanted a portable blackout blind. I couldn't find anything available to buy and my friends thought it was a good idea so I started to develop the idea further and ended up with SnoozeShade Original (the first of 9 products) that all make travelling with a baby or toddler easier.
What makes your product special?
It was the first product of its kind and although now a few other similar products have come to market I can proudly say I have invented a new category of baby products. It is the safest product of its kind as I design all my products to exceed the safety standards of a toy which is unlike any other sunshade on the market. I am also proud that SnoozeShade has been approved by the Melanoma International Foundation and a wide range of baby experts and health professionals happily recommend my products as they see the benefits of not only a well-rested child but also of a parent who is free to get out and about when needed.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
There are so many best bits. Two things that jump out is the amazing feedback I get from parents who simply love their SnoozeShade and what it does for their family. It's incredible to think that something I invented has helped so many thousands of people around the world. The other part is that I wanted to be able to work from home as my daughter grew up. Now I wouldn't say I am at home all the time as I have to travel a fair amount and I am running a business so it has to take priority a lot of the time like any job (there is no real life/work balance unless you have full time help). However, I am able to be flexible enough that I can see all school plays and take time off over school holidays which is really amazing. I've also been able to help other start ups with their own who have sought my advice and I can help them learn from my many many mistakes.

Me and my wife had our son this year (2017) and we like to get out and about as much as we can with our little one.
This comes in a handy mesh carry bag which has adjustable string which we have tied to the handle of our pram which means is easily available at any moment, as you can never determine when you are out and the little one wants to sleep.
This provides the same form of "black out" as black out curtains which is really helpful with getting your little one used to knowing that the dark is time for sleep (which I feel helps when it comes to night time).
It has tiny holes which do not let the light in but make it very breathable, it has a peep hole zip at the front to allow easy access to check to make sure everything is alright and will easily fit any buggy with the Velcro tabs and elastic banding.
On top of all that is it UV protected which means there is no need to be balancing blankets or positioning yourself to keep the Sun off the sensitive skin of the little one.
In my personal opinion I don't know how people did hot sunny days with out one of these and we have been so impressed we brought an extra one for a back up if we need to wash or lose the other one.
- Light weight and small
- Comes in a convenient carry case which can be tied to the handles or stored easily in a nappy bag.
- Easy to use and quick to put on
- Wont leave home without it.
- None come to mind, I just can not rate this any higher and recommend highly.
It is very stretchy and has several straps which allow you to pretty much attach it to any pram/buggy to keep your baby covered.
It comes with a zip on the front which is super handy as a means of peaking into to check on your baby.
I tried a similar shade earlier in the summer but wasn’t as good as this. It might be more expensive than other options but I would say it’s worth it for the quality. Great buy
