Snooze Shade – Review and Giveaway

I absolutely love the light nights and sunshine that comes with summertime, however it can cause a number of issues with a small baby.  I’ve been struggling to get Q to have a decent nap during the day, and so I’ve been resorting to closing all the curtains at nap-time.  I’ve also read that small babies should be kept in the shade on hot, sunny days; so I’ve been using one hand to shade Q’s face on the school run whilst pushing the pram with the other!  I must look a real sight!  When I was asked if I’d like to review the Snooze Shade, I couldn’t say no – it was just what I needed.

Snooze Shade Review

The Snooze Shade was developed by Cara, a mum who needed to get her baby girl to sleep.  Like Q, her daughter was easily woken by the light and she found that draping blankets or towels over the pram didn’t work as they’d blow away or fall off.  And so, the Snooze Shade was born!  It’s designed to be used as a sun shade, as well as a sort-of portable blackout blind to help children fall asleep easier.

The Snooze Shade is packed away neatly into a small mesh drawstring bag, in a plastic outer-packaging.  The cardboard insert details how the Snooze Shade came to be, fitting tips and safety advice.  Often, it’s difficult to get items back into their original packaging, but I was impressed at how easy it was to put the shade back into the drawstring bag.  It’s perfectly sized and easily fits inside a changing bag or in the shopping basket of the pram or pushchair.

We have a Silver Cross Pioneer travel system for Q, and we’re still using the pram at the moment.  The Snooze Shade was easily attached, stretching over the hood and attached to the extended handle using the velcro straps.  I did find that the straps slipped out of place every now and again, which is a little frustrating, but were easily returned to their original position.

The Snooze Shade did what it says; the majority of the pram was shaded and Q was happy underneath.  The sun was kept off his face and I feel much happier taking him out in his pram for walks and on the school run in the beautifully warm sunshine.  I imagine it fits a pushchair a little better, allowing children to go off to sleep easier.

Overall, I think the Snooze Shade is a worthy purchase for new parents, especially for the summer months or for taking on holiday.  This particular design is available at RRP £19.99, which I believe is great value for a versatile product.

  13. I’m the grandma, I can’t give advice because I can’t remember, I try to stay calm now and laugh at myself

  14. To talk to your children about their choices – I believe in teaching with punishment so they know exactly why they have done wrong. I did this from a very young age.

  15. Enjoy every moment – even the hard ones as one day you will miss them being little.

  16. remember every child is different, what works for on won’t necessarily work for another, trust your instincts and get to know your own kids, you know best because you know them best x
