    Default How do you shade your pram?

    I took my daughter out in the jogging stroller 2 days ago, and while it has the normal shade thing, it's not very big and she was in the sun a lot. She had sunscreen on but I still don't like her baby skin being exposed to so much sun. Just wondering what kind of shade attachment people find best out of these two styles:

    I use my city elite for walking and use a basic sun/uv cover. So 2nd option

    I've never seen the first style. I had one like the 2nd one and that's what I always used or if they were sleeping I just covered the pram with a muslin wrap.

    I don't like the big black covers for when they're awake as feel bad for bub not being able to see out very well. Feels a bit mean to me. So i only use mine for naps and use something like the first one or my pram umbrella/parasol. Parasols are really common in UK where I moved from but i am the only one here I've seen with one! You can angle them and move them around to always keep baby in shade but they can still see out.

    This is a touch OT but I have noticed a few times when I've been out some women don't use the pram shade at all and instead cover the baby head to toe with a sheet or a blanket. Seriously, why??? It freaks me out every time. Who told them that was safe to do? Ugh I once told a lady because I thought it might have been accidental because only half of the baby's face was covered and when I did she leaned into the pram and pulled the blanket over his entire face! I don't get it- at all. poor bubbas

    We bought a universal UV protector from Target. It attaches with Velcro straps. I'll come back with a photo.

    Top 2 photos are the pram hood fully down and bottom two are it folded back one. I get asked a lot where I got it and people staring at it!
