Any advice on a sunshade for a double nipper 360 ?

Can anyone suggest a good sunshade for a nipper 360 double pram. I have been advised that 2 parasols are the best option but after buying two I have realized what a nuisance they are. I was told you can buy a black mesh net to go over the pram but that most kids hate them as they can't really see out. My girls hate the sun in their eyes and the hood really doesn't cover them enough I would love to hear any of your suggestions. Can you get a sun canopy to fit without making the pram any wider ?

Hi Kirstin

I was told you can buy a black mesh

Yep a friend of mine has one of these but says it makes the Nipper look like Darth Vader! I just use a small blanket/muslin and a couple of pegs when walking directly into the sun though have recently purchased some baby banz sunglasses which they love!

Jojo Maman Bebe sell the black mesh Shade-a-Babe cover ( Shade a Babe Sun and Insect Cover for Double Buggies) which I bought to take on holiday as it has UVF 50+ protection. I have to admit I never used it, although our nanny used it yesterday at London Zoo and said it didn't fit properly, much like the Nipper rain cover - she thinks they are both made for the Mountain buggy.

Hi Kirstin

I broke my parasol the first time I used it so went to my local baby shop and they recommended a baby go go no-ray-me shade. It's great. It is primarily for a single buggy/pram (which I have) but my sister has tried it on her double out and about and it fits so she's getting one for herself.

Ive got a shade a babe - admittedly for a single, but the staff in mothercare let me try it on my 2 pushchairs before i bought it. It does look a bit odd that the babes are covered in this big black mesh thing, but a lot of the time i have the zip flap undone a little so you can see the baby, and although you cant see through it, the babes can see a lot through it, somwething to do with the way it is woven??? It is my essential piece of kit for the summer - especially as it doesnt matter where the sun is, you never have to fiddle about to make sure baby is covered - AND - they never get sunburnt feet lol

I have the evil black mesh cover (bought the nipper on ebay and it came with the shade) and my two hate it. They just kick it up.
But it does make me know that they are properly shaded from the sun so I don't have to worry.
Good luck x

The sun has gone away again so I will wait and see. I have been using a blanket and the clothes pegs are a good idea which is great when they are sleeping but no good when awake. I also bought the banz glasses which they don't seem to mind and are very cute :happy: Thanks for all your ideas x

There is also this as an option if you want them covering to some degree and are using the Bandz:

The original UV Buggy Cover.
