Here's a product that might garner a certain amount of controversy. The SnoozeShade (RRP £19.99) is a blacked out blinds for prams and pushchairs, primarily created for taking a sleeping baby out.
Created by a British mother who noticed a gap in the market, the blind has been picked up by John Lewis, Mothercare and JoJo Maman Bebe. It also received a raving review from Which?, which believed that it helped the tester's baby sleep for twice as long as usual.
I can see the benefit of a product like this when their usual routine goes out the window. It's also likely to be a popular product when the sunshine breaks out and their sensitive skin needs protection (UPF 50+).
The controversial element will be whether babies benefit from being completely blacked out. Many mothers prefer to maintain eye contact with their babies whilst walking, and there's a school of thought that believes this is more beneficial for the child too.
What do you think about it? Would you buy the SnoozeShade?
