Product Description
Fitting Tips & Safety Info

 

SnoozeShade for Pack 'n Plays is THE solution for getting your child to switch off and sleep in unfamiliar or bright surroundings. It's a must-have for naps away from home, sleeping in a room without drapes or room-sharing on vacation.

What age is it for? SnoozeShade for Pack ‘n Plays is suitable from birth right up until your child outgrows their playard.

Will it help my child sleep in their pack ‘n play? The science behind SnoozeShade is all about encouraging deep, restful sleep. Our unique fabric creates a comfortingly dark space – even with lights on in the room – which boosts melatonin (the sleep hormone) and helps children drift off. Our distraction-blurring mesh prevents them from latching on to visual stimuli that can cause them to wake between sleep cycles.

SnoozeShade fabric also protects from bugs, making it ideal for summertime and vacations.

What are the windows for? SnoozeShade has two single-layer mesh windows with adjustable blackout flaps that allow you to tailor light levels to suit your child. Cover both windows entirely for maximum darkness, or roll up one or both outer flaps and secure them with the baby-safe snaps.

What’s the top panel for? When fully open, the top panel creates a large opening for lifting your child in and out. The two-way zip can be closed completely for sleeping and partially opened when you want to check in on your sleeping beauty without letting in too much light. If you want to leave the top panel open, simply tuck it into the integrated pocket.

Is SnoozeShade for Pack ‘n Plays portable? Yes! The whole canopy packs down into a stylish and eco-friendly storage bag that fits easily in your luggage. It weighs just 2lbs.

Is it machine washable? Yes – it was invented by a mom! It can be washed at 30° and tumble dried on low heat.

What the experts say:

“Sometimes a dark room can be hard to find while you’re traveling. I love SnoozeShade as it can keep your baby from waking with that early-morning light.” —Cara, Taking Cara Babies

"This Pack ‘n Play shade is brilliant! I recommend it to my clients because it allows them to stay on schedule on the go.” —Ingrid Prueher, holistic sleep coach 

"This is genius and a MUST for travel. I trust SnoozeShade enough to have used it with my own nieces and nephews!" —Jamie Grayson, TheBabyGuyNYC

"Does SnoozeShade work? Yes, it works exactly as advertised! We used this playard-darkening cover multiple times for naps and even for full nights’ sleep when out of the house." —Paul Woods aka Upside Dad (Check out his independent review and demo here)

Will it fit my playard? SnoozeShade for Pack ‘n Plays fits ALL standard rectangular playards that are up to 41" long and 30” wide, including models by Graco, Baby Trend, Even-Flo, 4Moms, Dream on Me and Fisher Price. It also fits most popular travel cribs including Baby Bjorn, Nuna Sena, Guava Lotus, Phil & Teds.

How does it attach to my pack ‘n play? Simply throw it over your playard, pull down over the frame and secure the stretchy straps around the feet or wheels, overlapping the Velcro pads (you can double wrap if needed) to form a secure loop. You’re done!

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).
