I was very lucky to get a lovely snoozeshade to review. Over the last two weeks I’ve attached it to my buggy in various conditions. It really has proved a must have for mummymccann.The snoozeshade package arrived not long after buying a shade from Jojo Maman Bebe. The shade I’d bought covered the whole buggy but was basically a mozzie net which surprisingly boasts a 50uv protection. This obviously doesn’t mean the net part. Since buying it I’d been really concerned about the sun and our little red headed beauty.

A parasol just wouldn’t cut it as there was the possibility of a gap where sunshine could get through.I received my snoozeshade courtesy of http://www.snoozeshade.com/ and started using it immediately. It attached to the buggy easily with six fluorescent Velcro strips and has a nifty zip on the front so you can peak in at baby without disturbing little ones sleep. It protects from sun and wind and my rain cover fits over neatly so that I was able to use it in the rain too.

At first I found that I never attached it to the buggy the same way twice which gave me some nifty ways of allowing minimal light in so baby can play and have sun protection, it can be folded for added warmth and wind protection over a cosy toes.

The stretch of the shade makes it adaptable to any buggy (I tested mine on a Maclaren Quest and on a Jeep Infinity), itneeds a bit of stretching over the end of a Mothercare own make cosytoes but didn’t on my Clair De Lune. The fact the material and the Velcro tabs both have stretch in them to adapt to the shape/size of both of my buggies. Much better protection then the muslin or blacket I’ve seen pegged to many a pushchair!When not in use a small bag is provided as the snooze shade folds quite small so is ideal for the already brimming change bag.

All in all I think at the normal price of 19.99 it’s a really affordable price. But snoozeshade are offering readers of the blog a 10% discount and free delivery with the code 10FREE at www.snoozeshade.com

My daughter is very special to me. I am happy that she is healthy, happy and we obviously adore each other.

I have to admit occasionally my birth story still pulls at my emotions now. It feels selfish to have such sadness over it, especially as Isobel grows and time fades the tale.

There are many little things that I have come across as a mum that make me giggle when I remember. Parenting is fun but often we get too caught up in serious thinking.

The past two weeks have passed us by in a bit of a whirlwind. We have learnt how to interpret most of Red’s needs by either the pitch of her cry or the expressions she has shown us. A pouting shows us we will soon need to change her nappy, a cry with a whoop at the end is for winding and a sticking her tongue out means she would like some food. It is brilliant how we have already managed to figure some of these signs out and obviously makes it a easier for us to know what Isobel wants.
