Why is SnoozeShade black? Many people think that anything black gets hotter but in reality colour has very little to do with the creation of heat. More important is what material the product is made from and the amount of ventilation that it provides. SnoozeShade fabric is a mesh air-permeable polyester weave with lots of small holes that easily allows fresh air in and out. Just to be extra sure we had the fabric tested by a well respected independent laboratory which showed that our fabric scores highly in air permeability which means air gets in and out easily.
Black is also the best colour for UV protection as it blocks the most UV rays without needing to be chemically treated. Most sunshades are black or dark coloured for this reason. A darker colour creates a shaded environment inside the pram. After all, you go into the shade to stay cool on a hot day.
Parents often comment on how surprised they are when it feels cooler inside the pram on a hot day: The interior of the carriage also stays nice and cool. The material lets air in but keeps the sunlight out. People were asking if my son was baking underneath and I offered to let them place their hand under to see just how cool it was inside. Be aware that prams and car seats are often made from solid fabric that may heat up and if it has a long low hood then hot air has nowhere to go which can make it stuffy.
In cases like this we suggest you retract the hood and use SnoozeShade to allow maximum airflow. Can I use SnoozeShade products all year round? You can use SnoozeShade products at any time of year, whenever you want to encourage baby to sleep in the pram, stroller baby car seat or cot or protect from strong sun.
In cooler months it stretches over foot muffs and keeps light rain, wind and chill at bay. It can also protect from mosquitos, cats and other pesky insects. Can I use SnoozeShade products indoors? A reviewer from Which? Her baby slept for twice as long as he usually would when in his buggy.
It even helped her baby get to sleep in the middle of a noisy toddler group. The possibilities are endless.
How does using SnoozeShade help my baby and I? Helping baby sleep SnoozeShade is like a portable blackout blind for on-the-go families It enables you to be out and about but still maintain your baby sleep routine. Until I invented SnoozeShade, the only option for us parents was to throw makeshift items over a pram or pushchair like blankets or muslins. These are not always made from air permeable fabric, do not give sun protection, have to be lifted up letting in light that wakes up baby or just simply fly off with the slightest breeze or jolt.
Using a SnoozeShade becomes a sign to sleep or sleep trigger for babies — like closing the curtains in a nursery. SnoozeShade helps babies sleep as it takes away their ability to latch onto anything stimulating and creates a cosy comfortable healthy nap environment wherever you are. Deeper, longer sleep with no interruptions means your baby gets the sleep that he or she needs and we all know that well-rested happy babies mean everyone in the family has an easier time!
Many parents also use SnoozeShade to prevent well-meaning people from touching and disturbing their sleeping baby.
No more throwing blankets over the pram which blow away , or pegging muslins which become a distraction as baby starts to play with it or covering the stroller with a coat in colder weather. Should I still use other sunscreens whilst using SnoozeShade? Dependent on the age of your child, yes. Doctors recommend that babies aged under 6 months are kept out of direct sunlight completely as their skin does not have enough melanin to stop burning.
Medical opinion is divided on the use of sunscreen as infant skin is so thin that putting a sunscreen on could be harmful but so could getting burned. Most doctors take a common sense approach and recommend applying a small amount only to areas that may be exposed to the sun. Also if your buggy has a long deep hood its fabric will not be breathable and it will trap hot air.
In which case pull the hood back and use SnoozeShade to protect from UV and allow air to move. What safety testing has the SnoozeShade range been through? As a mother, I invented SnoozeShade to use with my own daughter and therefore safety has always been at the heart of SnoozeShade product design.
As a pram or pushchair accessory there are surprisingly few required safety standards. The BS EN 71 toy test means you cannot have straps that stretch longer than 22cm — over that length and it becomes a strangulation hazard.
This is one of the reasons that we choose to have multiple straps rather than a couple of longer ones that would reach around the stroller frame or hood and why our drawstring bags have Velcro halfway along the straps. It is also why we use Velcro and YKK expensive zips as they are designed to comply with anti-choking regulations. The poppers that we use on the SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe are safety certified.
Every product has been designed to comply with European Standards, particularly with reference to BS EN 71 standard for the safety of child use and care articles. In addition, the SnoozeShade range has been tested, and is compliant with, the following safety standards: Babies often wake up during their natural sleep cycle and if they see something interesting, eg their parents or a duck pond, then it can stimulate them which prevents them going back to sleep.
Many parents use SnoozeShade to prevent well-meaning people from touching and disturbing their sleeping baby. When a blanket or coat is thrown over a pram, pushchair or travel systems for baby it usually means you have to lift it up to check on baby, which then lets in light which can disturb your sleeping baby or baby who is trying to sleep.
You can choose to have it open or closed — whatever works for you. How do I know SnoozeShade Original will fit my pram or pushchair?
