Cara was in marketing, but left her career to look after her baby girl. She had an idea for a product that would help make her life as well as so many other mother's lives easier and now over two years later, here she is as a mompreneur with a variety of baby products. These products are SnoozeShade, which she created as she as well as a ton of other moms have had to use blankets and jackets to cover the stroller when you baby or toddler falls asleep, or even to get some of them to actually fall asleep while out and about. The most frustrating thing about using blankets and/or jackets is that they always slide off or leave one side open allowing light in, etc, etc! SnoozeShade was created in 2010, so her daughter could nap, but she was still able to get out of the house. She created many different versions, for double strollers, infant carriers, playards (coming soon) as well as the SnoozeShade Plus requested by parents.
SnoozeShade Twin Classic
The SnoozeShade Twin is an award-winning breathable sun and sleep shade for double wide strollers that protects babies and toddlers from the sun and allowing ANY TIME to be nap time!
No more annoying and heavy or too small blankets over the stroller the continuously have to readjust!
The SnoozeShade Twin Classic fits our Combi Twin Sport (double wide) stroller amazingly well!!
I rather like the fact that the inside is not completely pitch black as some babies and toddlers have an issue with the dark, it does greatly help to shade them from the sun and allow them to fall asleep with out the huge fight as it block the visual stimuli and 94% of light that can keep baby awake. It also covers the sides and even the top where the two shades leave a gap, very nicely! No direct sunlight gets in except near the little toes, but I probably could pull it down a bit more.

I really like that the strap are Velcro and not snaps, Velcro is so much faster and easier, especially if you have an over tired and quite upset bubby your trying to get to sleep. Putting the SnoozeShade Twin on the stroller is very quick! Take it off is even quicker, you just undo the Velcro and pull it off. the Velcro is attached to elastic, the elastic is very stretching, allowing for a great fit on all double wide double strollers. The Velcro tabs are very strong allowing for a secure fit with out them coming loose from a snug fit.

SnoozeShade Original Classic
You may be asking yourself, "But, what if I have a tandem stroller with one in front of the other?". No problem! Just use two SnoozeShade Original Classics! I'm almost certain that the single shade will even work on the double wide strollers to cover one bubby, but not the other! I have not tried it, but I really need to. It is sitting in my front hall, but every time we leave to take a walk I'm a bit over whelmed and end up forgetting it. If this works, I know it will be better as I have a young toddler as well as a 3 year old. Cade, my 3 year old doesn't really nap until he crashes from running around outside or swimming. And he loves to watch the cars, trucks, emergency vehicle, etc go by as we're taking our walks. I will definitely update this post with the SnoozeShade Original covering just one of the double wide seats.
Do you feel a SnoozeShade would help to make your outings easier? What other product(s) from SnoozeShade do you like?
