Come on, admit it – there have been times when you had to take the little one out in the buggy in the middle of the day when it’s been over 30 degrees and all you have is a sarong or a towel to shield your little one’s eyes from the sun whilst he sits in the buggy. As you drape your sarong over the buggy trying to make sure it’s also secure and not going to fall on the baby’s head at any given moment or blow away down the paseo you wish you had something more adequate. Something perfectly designed to tie on to your buggy that would not only ensure every part of your delicate baby’s skin was protected from the powerful rays of the sun but that also doubled up as a nice cool darkened area for him to sleep in.
You wish you had a SnoozeShade!
The SnoozeShade in action
The SnoozeShade has been designed by a mum who was looking for a practical and simple way to allow her daughter to have a decent and restful nap whilst out and about. The SnoozeShade is basically a dark mesh material that has velcro ties to attach around parts of pretty much any buggy or pram and also has a zipped area at the front to allow you take a peek every now and then at your child to check they’re still comfortably enjoying their nap.
Sold as a “Sombra y Siesta” in Spain, the SnoozeShade is a fantastic idea and bit of kit to keep in the changing bag for your baby when out and about. I came across it not long ago and in perfect time for when I started to take my 10 week old son out in the stroller. I’m glad I didn’t have to bear those situations in which one parent is walking strategically in front of the buggy shielding their baby from the sun because the parasol only covers a small section of the buggy or when you find yourselves needing to cross the road to find a tiny bit of shade or only walking in one direction so that the sun stays behind you etc. etc. You only have to be out in the sun for such a short time in Spain before you start to get some colour and trying to keep young babies out of direct sunlight can be pretty difficult when out and about so the SnoozeShade goes a long way to helping you out as it also has a UPF50+ rating.
Washable, portable and a great price at 29,90€ (saving you extra money on over-priced sun creams in Spain!!) and a much needed product for all mums in Spain!
I’ve found the “Sombra y Siesta” to also be great around the house. If I’m doing housework and am moving about the house I put the little one in the stroller to wheel around with me and if he then falls asleep in it, rather than move him to his basket I just pull the SnoozeShade down and let him take his nap where he is.
