Fancy a snooze? Or how about another little hip giveaway...

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, hip mumma's are happily pushing sleeping bubba's through the pretty streets smiling contentedly. There's a slight cool breeze. A beautiful day. But wait, whats that I hear? The sounds of a crying baby? A mum chasing after a runaway muslin wrap, hastening to refasten it over the pram once more with clothes pegs. Bubba is now wide-awake. Mum is now grumpy. Everyone is now very grumpy.

Apart from us. This little hip family are not grumpy. Far from it. I stroll merrily past, confident in the knowledge that my little toddler is safely snoozing away. You see, without trying to sound too coy, my little one is fast asleep in her pram because we have been reviewing the fabulous Snooze Shade. In fact, I have to say, the length of her daytime sleep has increased dramatically since testing out the Snooze Shade. And here's why...
  • Snooze Shade is a blackout blind made specifically for prams and strollers.
  • Its made from special breathable fabric, and even though its black, it does not retain the heat and is well ventilated inside.
  • 50 UVF50+ which is the highest protection available. 
  • Its universal size means that one size fits all prams and strollers.
  • The fabulous sneak-a-peak zip means mums and dads can check on the little hip quietly and subtly.
  • No more draping muslin wraps or blankets over the top with those grotty clothes pegs.
  • When the weather is bad, it evens fits under your rain cover.
  • {My favourite}. It conveniently folds up into a very little drawstring bag which is perfect for leaving under the pram to pull out when necessary (unlike my previous shade cover which was enormous and totally unpractical).
  • By blocking out the elements, insects and other distractions, it totally assists little people to sleep on the go, anywhere, and we LOVE anything that helps with sleep on the go!

But best of all, Snooze Shade has been created by a very clever mum, Cara, who turned a dream into reality. How aspirational. We shall hear more from Cara soon - with her own fabulous travel tips.

I have to admit, when I first heard about I thought "oh, its just another shade cover", (we do use them a lot especially in Australia) but how naive was I? You see, the minute you actually see the product, you know its different. The fact that its universal, that its fits on both my pram and my stroller is highly convenient, plus I love the lightweight and foldable material, and of course, the complete blackout is a real bonus.

Good work Cara. What a very hip invention!
