How to fit SnoozeShade for Infant Carriers
Product description
Fitting & safety

How does it work? SnoozeShade creates 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 provide safe UV protection.

Many parents say SnoozeShade deters people from uninvitedly touching their baby, which can be a worry before they’ve had their vaccinations. The ‘please don’t touch’ label acts as an extra deterrent!

What's snooze mode?
When you want to completely shade your baby or encourage sleep, fasten both the inner and outer panels of your SnoozeShade. Our fabric blocks 99% of UV, 94% of light and blurs distractions. The sneak-a-peek zip allows you to check on baby without letting in light.

What's shade mode?
When baby is awake, use SnoozeShade as a car-seat sunshade by tucking the snooze panel into the integrated pocket. This reveals a single-layer mesh window that allows your baby to see out while still blocking 80% of UV. The shade panel can also be tucked away in the integrated front pocket if you’re not using it.

When in shade mode, your baby is still fully protected overhead and at the back and sides by a double layer of mesh that blocks 99% of UV (UPF 50+).

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 easily. The Skin Cancer Foundation says incidents of sunburn during childhood multiply the risk of one day developing skin cancer. SnoozeShade is the ONLY infant car-seat canopy approved by the Melanoma International Foundation.

Will SnoozeShade help my baby nap?
SnoozeShade is recommended by baby-sleep experts because it works like a portable blackout blind, creating a sleep-friendly space and acting as a cue for naptime. Daytime naps reduce cortisol levels, which helps babies fall asleep more easily at night – good news for everyone!

SnoozeShade also makes it easier to transfer baby from the car without waking them, because they’re not startled by a sudden change in light or air temperature. If you’re travelling at night, it can help your baby sleep by blocking out bright lights.

What age is it for?
SnoozeShade can be used from birth until your baby outgrows the car seat at around nine months.

Is SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats machine washable?
Of course – it was invented by a mom! All SnoozeShades are machine washable at 30° and can be tumble dried on a low heat.  

Will it fit my infant carrier? It will fit any Group 0 or 0+ infant car seat with a rigid carry handle. It has been tried and tested on popular infant carriers by Maxi-Cosi, Cosatto, Graco, Chicco, Britax, Doona, Concord and more.

How does it attach to my car seat? SnoozeShade attaches in seconds. The soft mesh, elasticated sides and stretchy straps make it super easy – even with one hand!

1. If your car seat has an integrated hood, push it all the way back.
2. Make sure the handle is in the upright position and wrap the two top straps around it, securing with the Velcro pads.
3. Pull the elasticated edges of the SnoozeShade over the front and back of your car seat.

Do I need to leave SnoozeShade on my car seat? Many parents simply leave it installed. It’s easy to lift your baby in and out through the front panel, and you can still carry the car seat by its handle with SnoozeShade in place. If you prefer to remove it, SnoozeShade packs down into a compact storage bag, included free with every order.

Why SnoozeShade is safe: SnoozeShade was invented by British mom Cara Sayer, who needed a safe solution to help her daughter sleep soundly in her stroller. SnoozeShade Original has since become the world’s favorite sun and sleep shade for strollers, and the range has expanded to include blackout shades for car seats and playards.

Our scientifically tested fabric is completely 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 tested to and exceed required US safety standards. Our fabric is chemical free, and every component is safe enough for a newborn, including our zips, straps and snaps (the only certified baby-safe snaps in the world).

Medical professionals recommend babies spend as little time as possible in infant carriers, as the healthiest position for them is lying flat. It goes without saying that a child should never be left unattended in a car, even for a moment. Always ensure there is air movement in the car.
