What is SnoozeShade Original Deluxe? It's a premium version of SnoozeShade Original, created in silver-grey fabric with a black trim and the world’s only certified baby-safe poppers.

How does it work? SnoozeShade works by creating a comfortingly dark space that encourages naps by boosting melatonin (the sleepy hormone). When your baby naturally stirs at the end of their sleep cycle, the unique fabric 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 97.5% of UV rays.

What's the snooze mode? Use SnoozeShade Original Deluxe 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, allowing baby to switch off and sleep. In this mode SnoozeShade will also shield your baby from wind, insects and light rain.

A sleeping-baby emblem deters people from disturbing your child, while the sneak-a-peek zip lets you check on them without letting in too much light.

What's the shade mode? Attach it to the hood and handle of your pram or pushchair to create an overhead canopy that protects from 97.5% of UVA and UVB rays (UPF 40+). You can also position it to only cover your baby’s legs – ideal when they’re dressed for summer.

Why should I keep my baby out of the sun? Doctors state that babies under six months must be kept completely out of direct sunlight. Their skin is too sensitive for sunscreen and contains very little melanin, so they burn more easily. The Skin Cancer Foundation says incidents of sunburn during childhood multiply the risk of one day developing skin cancer, including melanoma.

Will it help my baby nap? When in snooze mode, SnoozeShade works like a portable blackout blind, blocking out 94% of light and blurring distractions. It’s recommended by baby-sleep experts worldwide, because when used regularly it becomes a sleep cue for your child, helping them learn when it’s naptime in the same way that shutting the curtains in their nursery does.

What age is it for? We recommend SnoozeShade Original Deluxe from birth to six months, because it’s proportioned for a baby who is mostly lying flat. 

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.

Will it fit my pram or pushchair? Yes! SnoozeShade Original Deluxe is universally sized and fits any single-width pram or pushchair with a hood, including jogging strollers.

Can I use it with a travel system? Yes, you can use it with an infant carrier 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 my SnoozeShade on my pram or pushchair all the time? No, it's super lightweight and packs down into a storage bag (free with every order) that’s compact enough to pop into your change bag or buggy basket.

How do I attach it to my pushchair? It attaches in seconds. The soft mesh, elasticated sides and stretchy straps make it effortless to fit, while the baby-safe poppers fasten quickly and securely. Here are our top tips:

1. SnoozeShade Original Deluxe 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 or pushchair 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. The straps are designed to stretch 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 be easier to attach at the bottom.


Why SnoozeShade Original Deluxe is safe to use:

SnoozeShade was invented by Cara Sayer – a safety-obsessed mum who wanted to help her daughter sleep soundly and stay protected from the sun while in her pushchair. Unlike a blanket or muslin, our scientifically tested fabric is 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 UK, European and US safety standards and are approved by the Melanoma International Foundation. Our fabric is not treated with any chemicals and every component we use is safe enough for a newborn, including our zips, straps and poppers.
