Best sunshade? (especially for Bee+)

Poor DD is being blinded because the Bee+ canopy only shades to just above her eyebrows, especially when we go up hills (and I live on a hill!)

Any ideas? I've seen the bugaboo space age silver sun hood thing but cba swapping it for the usual hood all the time (need to use the usual hood for DD's naps as the space age one lets in lots of light).

I have a snooze shade which i use for naps but dd wouldn't much like being unable to see out when she's awake.

anyone got one of these? looks good but how far down the baby does the shade go?

I find that if my DD (age 2.2) is sitting in our Bee Plus in the most upright position, the standard Bee hood practically touches her knees if you pull it all the way forward. Mind you, this will be useless to you if your DD is small or the seat is reclined for sleeping! grin

ah, unfortunately she is too small for that position, only 4.5 months and not sitting yet. plus if I use that position when parent facing and going uphill, she is virtually tipped forward!

but good to know for future.

Ah, I did think that maybe she was just too small smile What about a parasol? Personally I am very cheap inventive and used a muslin pegged onto the hood grin

Baby beamers sunsnoozer has a flap she could see out of.

I chuck a blanket over the top of my old bee, pegs if windy so in LittleNutTree's camp

I have the Bee+ breezy thing, this one, and I really like it. Don't find the light a problem at all.
