A BIG thank you goes out to SnoozeShade for sponsoring this giveaway as part of the Birthday Bash event…
We have an infant stroller that has a lap tray, sun shade and offers a reclining feature to allow for our sleeping Baby Girl. Unfortunately the sun shade that comes on the stroller barely keeps the sun out of her eyes. With the DIY Home Construction build, I am always out at the site with the kids, especially Baby Girl. We have a heated storage room where in the colder weather we used to lay Baby Girl down for her naps in her playpen. Now that the weather has turned warm Baby Girl prefers to be around and watch what everyone is doing. Often this is outdoors and without grass or an even surface for her to play on; I really do not like letting her out of her stroller if I can help it. Baby Girl enjoys sitting in her stroller with her array of toys and snacks while she watches Hubs work on the house, inside or out. When she would fall asleep I would simply recline the seat to a laying position and throw a blanket over top to keep out the light. The problem is with this warmer weather the blanket makes it too warm inside the stroller for sleeping conditions.
Baby Girl is more like her father in that she gets hot easily and prefers to kick all her covers off. I have also noticed that Baby Girl sleeps more soundly and longer in a dark space, even than filtered sun light. The SnoozeShade blocked the light out to allow Baby Girl to sleep soundly. The UV sun protection with breathable fabric of the SnoozeShade offers a more comfortable environment to allow her a longer sleeping period. With the added peekaboo zipper, I can easily check on Baby Girl to see if she is stirring around about to wake from her slumber. For me, this means I have a longer period of time free of Baby Girl to help Hubs with the DIY Home Construction projects and ultimately that means that we will be done sooner and be able to move in sooner. Once Baby Girl does wake from her nap, the SnoozeShade can be taken off the stroller and stored in the matching drawstring storage bag that it comes in. The bag is conveniently small enough to store inside a diaper bag, hang it from the handle of the stroller or just throw it in the basket.
