SnoozeShade {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I remember feeling helpless and limited and housebound without a double stroller when the 2nd came around.  The day we bought a double, I felt like it was a symbol of my freedom!  I was able to leave the house and tote my kids along with me while I ventured to run my errands around town.  In the city, our stroller is our vehicle, and it gets lengthy daily use.  The first day I loaded up the kids to head to the park was in May, and the unseasonably high temperatures and fears of my baby overheating were already on my mind.  The newborn was still sleeping quite a bit, so he spent even more time in the stroller when we reached our destinations.  I was cautious to park in the shade and cover his carrier with blankets, but again, I constantly worried about him heating up.  This SnoozeShade cover would have been a great solution, and even with my baby a year older and not really a stroller-sleeper anymore, we still found this to be a useful and effective cover for keeping the little man covered, shaded, and comfortable on all our outings.

The SnoozeShade is a blackout blind and sunshade that fits around your stroller, as seen below.  It keeps your baby in a cool, dark environment so they can sleep away while staying protected from the sun in a breathable, well-ventilated double layer of lightweight fabric.  As you can see, SnoozeShade has won multiple awards, each of them well deserved.

I was a little worried about this SnoozeShade Plus being a good fit for my double.  Pictures online made this product look like a super snug arrangement for single strollers, but I thought I’d see if there was an arrangement that could work with our Jeep Tandem.  It works just the same!

The elastic around the sides make it completely customizable to your stroller brand and model, and then the velcro straps that you can fasten around the structure really hold things in place, regardless of where the bars are on your specific stroller model.

It gets really dark in there!  This does an excellent job of blocking out the light, but still allowing your baby to see what’s going on.   Unzipping the peek-a-boo zipper at the top is a great way to check on your sleeper, or let the little guy get a better look!  I’m excited to see how this protects from bugs as well!IMG_4533 copy

My only critique is that the cover looks a little baggy on my stroller, but the seal is tight and secure, so this is just a cosmetic concern.  How very, very handy that it folds into a cute little bag with a drawstring, so that you don’t have to stuff it into the bottom compartment of your stroller.  Compact and transportable is the way to go!

Well, we love it!  Many happy stroller rides are in our near future!

We are freezing in Boston!  Dying!!  I am so done with all this snow that is never going to melt, neighbors being territorial over their street parking spaces, the bitter cold, and gas bills out the roof.  I think my attention to the weather becomes more deliberate and my hatred for the cold more intense with every child.  The only thing worse than being cold outside is knowing that your tiny baby is just as cold, or colder.  Their tiny little limbs and fingers just can’t hold heat as well as us adults, and I worry the entire outdoor journey about their well-being.  I think I can finally rest assured that my baby is going to be just fine on our downtown outings now that we have a Polar Igloo from 7 A.M. Enfant!

Untitled-2This little foot muff is a mother’s dream come true!  It was actually inspired by the Arctic atmosphere.  What a top-of-the-line insulator to keep my little bundle bundled!  This ingenious cover is so light and fluffy because its made from a faux down insulation.  It has a cozy microfleece lining that surrounds the baby, and the most luxurious Sherpa along the entire front cover.  It is so buttery soft to the touch, I just want to climb inside with him!  The outside shell is water-proof–perfect for those nasty snowy/rainy/sleety days.  And oh I love those zippers!  The red felt trim is the perfect touch.

Besides all of its fantastic climate control features, the Polar Igloo can be used in so many ways!  It does a fantastic job adapting to practically any stroller and carseat on the market.  The five-point harness openings allow you to fit this into any child seat and still use the restraining straps and clasps installed to keep your baby secure.  You don’t have to cram, smash, or choke any insulation through car seat straps to ensure an easy, snug, and speedy protection.  The velcro loop straps are intense.  VERY strong, with elastic between the two layers to provide a flexible, but extremely secure, hold.  Its not just for strollers and carseats, though.  You could use it on its own as a blanket or a sleeping cozy for any outdoor activities or even camping with a little one.  The front can be completely removed if you wanted to simplify, and the hood can open flat.  Ah versatility!  I love it!

This winter, I’ve grown so tired of stuffing baby in and out of his snowsuit every time we transition from warm to cold to warm again.  This fully functioning bunting eliminates the need to completely dress and undress him every time, which is saving me a heap of time and saving my fingers from a heap of cold zipper work!  And get ready for the magic words: machine-washable!  I know!

IMG_2441

I usually feel like monster, taking the baby out in the bitter cold with those vicious winds.  But I cannot tell you how calm and assured I am about my baby being completely warm and cozy in this Polar Igloo.  My only minor point of criticism is that the black kind of looks like a trash bag, but not the case with the other lovely colors that this comes in–bordeaux and oxford-blue.  This is completely essential for babies in the big city!  It is the ultimate baby winter protection!

IMG_2472

We got a size Medium, which is intended for ages 6-18 months.  I think the sizing is spot on, and I’m stoked about being able to use this next winter as well.  It also comes in size Small (for 0-6 months) and Large (for 18-3T).  7 A.M. Enfant also makes matching mittens, booties, and a Polar hat!  The only thing that would complete our look would be the WarMMuffs!

Ok, think back to all the ugly below freezing weather days we’ve had this winter.  Are you remembering all those outdoor excursions with your kids and how you worried about keeping your babies warm?  Have I convinced you of the amazing features of the 7 A.M. Enfant Polar Igloo?

One extremely lucky winner (and their baby!) is going to win a Polar Igloo ($125!) in their choice of color!  (Black, bordeaux, or oxford-blue).
