Oh god that shade a babe thing. It worked so well but was a major PITA.

We have a SnoozeShade: £20 and fits pretty much any single buggy. They do a doubles version as well I think. Holds on with velcro.
Knocks the socks off my previous bulky sack thing Shade-a-babe.

I just stretch a fitted cot sheet over the hood of my buggy then down over the seat. Elasticated bits hold it on perfectly. Though I can't see the baby and he can't see me, he's mostly asleep anyway.

Don't know if this would be any good but cheaper than the palm.

I have a Britax buggy so the hoods have a split in them you can unzip for a mesh panel and to extend the hoods (I still think they need to do a limited edition one of this made to look like Zippy from Rainbow - I'd soooooo buy it). Prior to that I just used a parasol on my iCandy - which was annoying.

As we have had a few sunny days recently I am starting to realise that I may need a better shade solution for my Quinny Buzz.

I bought a parasol to go with it and used it for the first time yesterday. It was ok and provided some good shade, however I found myself faffing with it a lot - but only because I wanted to see baby. Then a bit later on she managed to pull it off!

So, my question to all is what shade solutions do you have for your pushchairs? I am very tempted by the iCandy palm as it has a large hood plus an insect net part to it, but at £35 is expensive.

I have also looked at the Rayshade with is only £14. The reviews on this are that it blows around a bit in the wind and can only really be used when the pushchair is forward facing.

If anyone else has any suggestions please chip in!
