Putting a cover over the pram might en­cour­age your lit­tle one to get some sleep, but it could also put your bub at risk of over­heat­ing. An en­closed pram gets very hot, very quickly, which is why Emma Lovell, founder and direc­tor of Coz­iGo, de­signed a safe stroller cover that is not only breath­able but also of­fers 50+ sun pro­tec­tion. “Too many peo­ple grab what­ever is at hand to cover their stroller with­out think­ing how safe it is for their baby,” she says. “Coz­iGo is 100 per cent breath­able and is air per­me­able mean­ing that the air flows freely through the canopy with­out re­stric­tion.” The cool dome shape also means there’s plenty of room for bub to move. NSW Health also rec­om­mends the fol­low­ing to keep bub safe:

Never leave ba­bies, chil­dren or pets alone in a car, not even for a mo­ment. Ba­bies and chil­dren can over­heat very quickly in cars. The tem­per­a­ture in­side a parked car can be 30-40°C hot­ter than out­side.

Never cover a baby cap­sule in the car with a rug or towel as this re­stricts air move­ment, mak­ing baby hot­ter.

An en­closed pram can get very hot; en­sure air cir­cu­lates around baby by re­mov­ing the back panel or plac­ing them in more open strollers.
