SnoozeShade Cot Competition

Parenting is not the easiest job in the world and you soon realise the virtues of the daytime nap.  But getting your child to sleep isn’t as straightforward as you think; forget the term sleeping like a baby - its false advertising probably intended to ensure the future survival of the human race and definitely did not apply to either of mine!

I used to spend longer trying to get them to nap than they actually napped for, it could be quite frustrating especially on bright days when the sunshine seemed determined to make my job even harder.  I am sure it was making a mockery of me as it shined straight through our thin curtains and magically revived my previously sleepy child!  Meaning no warm cup of tea for me whilst I spent a few minutes nosing on facebook – instead it would be back to trying to coax my little one off to sleep or rather reluctantly giving up in my quest.

You need to up the stakes if you want the welcome peace and quiet a nap affords you; thankfully products are available from SnoozeShade to make the process of getting your baby off to sleep much more manageable.

The SnoozeShade Cot (£64.99) is such a revolutionary product, forget black out blinds, have a blackout cover for your baby’s cot instead!  You can even adjust the amount of light (by rolling up the side panels) when its time to slowly wake your child from a nap…


Much better to take the softly softly approach because if a baby is woken too suddenly you can pretty much guarantee a full meltdown with tears and ample drama!  Let them think they woke up naturally by bringing in the right amount of sunlight to gently coax them awake again.

It got to the point I used to dislike the summer months just because it meant less naps and an earlier start.  We tried black out blinds but by the time I had adjusted it to the window the moment was lost.  You have to move quickly, your window of opportunity is small when it comes to mastering the art of the nap.  Babies can go from sleepy to wide-awake in five seconds flat… so if you have the SnoozeShade Cot cover in place ready your one step closer to be successful.


The SnoozeShade Cot material is breathable so your little ones will still be comfortable sleeping in their cot.  The panels reassuringly give you visibility to keep an eye on your precious baby sleeping.  Yes I was that new mum that had to keep checking – fortunately it’s so simple to do so with this clever design. If you would like to win a SnoozeShade Cot (fits all popular cots that take a 120cm long x 60cm wide mattress) then please fill out the form below by the 22nd of October.

  9. Very smart and simple idea that means you can have baby sleeping quietly in the same room and still have a night light on to read or enjoy a little morning sunshine to wake up naturally yourself. x
