The relentless Florida sun has emerged and is here to stay for a long time. I always forget just how hot our summers get, and how hard it is to protect the little ones from the unforgiving sun. Especially with an infant too young for sunscreen – how is a new mom supposed to get out for a quick walk with the stroller? I am thrilled to have discovered the UPF 50 SunChaser Buggy Shade by Buggy Gear.
The SunChaser Buggy Shade is a removable sun shade comprised of a flexible arm which attaches to your stroller or other baby/ child containing object. The shade itself is the size of a large frying pan, but light weight. This SunChaser Buggy Shade is very well built and engineered. I was impressed from the moment I took it out of the packaging.
- The arm is sturdy yet easily adjustable in any direction.
- The oversized sunshade itself is made of material that is 50 UPF – so the child being shielded from the sun is protected from harmful rays.
- The shade attaches very easily to any object by tightening a grip with a thick plastic wing nut.
- The shade can be folded up and stored along the side of the stroller when not in use. The SunChaser’s ability to be collapsed is convenient for the days when it is too windy or when the sun doesn’t pose a threat to your baby.

I have used the SunChaser Buggy shade on our stroller, but also on our baby’s bassinet which I once in a while bring out on the back porch. Now he can be outside in the fresh air with us, without being exposed to the sun, which is a huge peace of mind.
My favorite part about this sun shade is the flexible arm. Once you adjust it to cover your child it does not fall or move in any way. The shade itself is really big, so you don’t have to compromise body parts as you are shielding your child from the sun.
