A stroller sunshade that makes sense

Stroller sunshade from MaclarenI can get a little crazy about sun protection (just ask my husband). I douse myself in SPF 30 every single day–no matter the time of year–and I run for the shade at the playground and the park. So it’s only natural that I want the same safe sun vigilance for my kids. I’ve been looking for a good stroller sunshade–a non-black one that still lets my sons see the world–and I finally found one. Thank you Maclaren!

The new Sunshade from Maclaren
is a smart and stylish light grey color. I never understood why so many
stroller sunshades were black, since dark colors absorb the sun and
light ones reflect it. The fabric is a UPF 50, which shields children
from 99% of UVA and UVB rays. It’s also water-resistant, should you park
your stroller too close to the sprinklers (which I always do).

I
also love the mesh side panels. Call me neurotic, but I always worry
about my boys not getting enough oxygen when I cover the stroller in a
rain or sunshade. The shade was made to universally fit all Maclaren
buggies, though it does claim to work for most all umbrella strollers.

Now
I don’t have to worry so much about covering my kids head to toe in
sunscreen just to run to the grocery store. The sunshade does it for me!

    I got a newer stroller from them and I was already impressed with the new zip out to get a larger shade function. That just improves upon it. Awesome!
