How to use your SnoozeShade baby car seat cover

How to use your SnoozeShade baby car seat cover


Every single SnoozeShade we produce is subjected to rigorous testing that goes above and beyond nursery industry standards- and we are more than happy to let you know exactly which standards we meet and exceed if you're interested to know. The point is that we take safety very seriously and we're committed to ensuring that our customers are aware of how to use our products safely too. We've previously  written a guide on how to use your SnoozeShade and this week we'd like to delve further into the best ways to use the SnoozeShade for infant car seats in particular. Do get in touch if you have any questions at all.

SnoozeShade for Infant car seats/ Deluxe

There are two designs for infant car seats, the original is £24.99 and suitable for group 0/0+ car seats. It protects your baby from up to 99% of UV rays (UPF50+) and fits all popular Group 0 and 0+ infant carriers with a rigid carry handle. As a baby car seat sun shade, SnoozeShade has one of the highest levels of sun protection of any product on the market blocking up to 99% of UVA & UVB (UPF50+). There is also a  large soft mesh window which means that baby is protected from 80% of UV and can enjoy the sights.

The Deluxe version is also suitable for group 0/0+ infant car seats and protects baby from 97.5% of UV rays (UPF40+). Similar to the original, the deluxe will fit all popular Group 0 and 0+ infant carriers which have rigid carry handles. The difference between the two is that the deluxe comes in a lustrous grey/silver colour that works with the dark inner layer to block 97.5% of UV rays, and has two zips on the fully opening soft mesh window so that it can be opened partially or fully.

How to use them

It's easy to fit your SnoozeShade for infant car seats. Simply put the carry handle in the upright position and attach the velcro straps. Pull the car seat canopy around the base of the car seat. Lower the outer sleep panel, unzip the shade panel and you can then leave on the car seat and pop baby in and out as needed. Store the panels in the front pocket provided when not in use.

Safety considerations

  • Medical professionals recommend that young babies spend as little time as possible in infant carriers as the healthiest and optimal position is lying horizontal. This is crucial for child development, relieves pressure on your little one’s back and allows oxygen to be more easily exchanged.
  • It is very important that you read our safety advice about babies being in cars during hot weather. A child should never be left unattended (even for a moment) in a car at any time, in any weather conditions. Please also always ensure that there is air movement in the car – a car with closed windows heats up very quickly.
  • SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats is not designed for use with infant car seat sleeper models.
