Hi there, I have a britax b smart that I am using with the carrycot at the moment as DD is only 7 weeks. The only problem is that I live by the sea so there's always a breeze so draping a muslin over the hood isn't working as I seem to be forever chasing them along the street as they blow away! The hood on the seat unit is much bigger so provides more protection but I'd rather she was still in the carrycot as I think it's more comfy and she sleeps soundly in it when we are out and about! Can anyone recommend a UV shade that will work with the carrycot? Thanks.
5inthebed, Thanks for replying but that link won't work for me, perhaps as I'm using my phone, what was the item?
I have seen online various UV shades but none say if they work with a carrycot and all are pictured on seat units. Don't want to waste my money buying something that wont work! Thought this was the best place to ask as surely other people have had this problem too?!
Mousy, does the shade a babe tie on to the handle area at all? My worry is there's nothing to tie onto on the carrycot and I'll just be replacing chasing muslins with a shade that blows about everywhere!
I use the Summer Infant rayshade that 5inthebed linked to, it is supposed to go forward facing I think but it works brilliantly on my cam carrycot. Loads of mums from school have asked where I got it. Another idea for you might be a large size muslin secured to the hood and pram handle with those link type teethers, I use this when I have DS in the carseat on the pram frame.
I have a sun net that I used with DC2, it cost about £3 and is a white mesh fabric with elastic round the edges so it can fit on just about anything, carrycot, buggy or carseat. It's fabulous! Keeps the sun off, keeps the breeze off, and keeps insects out. It's currently on the pram waiting the arrival of DC3 to keep the cats out. I did have a shade a babe before that but I didn't like it. I think because it was black it attracted heat, and it was big and stiff so difficult to store on the buggy when not being used.
