sun safety for little ones SnoozeShade StickerscapeHere at SnoozeShade HQ we take sun safety very seriously indeed. Did you know that babies under the age of six months should not be exposed to direct sunlight AT ALL? And did you also know that in the UK, experts recommend little ones wear sun screen from April until October, regardless of the weather being less than summery? The reason being that those pesky UV rays are always present, even when we think the clouds are protecting us. And our babies have such delicate skin that even the mildest episode of sunburn can increase the risk of skin cancer later in life. Better to be safer than sorry, don't you think?

1.Get yourself a SnoozeShade!

The SnoozeShade Original not only creates a darkened nap environment for your baby, but it has the maximum sun protection against more than 99% of UV rays (UPF50+).

Therefore the SnoozeShade Original is not just for sleep! On a sunny day it can also be used in 3 extra ways to provide valuable shade from the sun. Create an overhead sun canopy (no more parasols that need to be moved every few minutes as you cross the road), protect little legs from the sun and use it like you would a blanket to create some extra shade over the pram's hood.

Swimming is an essential life skill for children and it's never too early to get your little one in the water. In fact, the earlier you start, the more naturally your child's confidence will develop and with the right instruction you'll be surprised how quickly your baby will learn.

We've been chatting with the lovely people at Water Babies to get them to share some secrets. Their instructors have been helping babies and toddlers to swim since 2002 and now teach over 45,000 little ones every week. We asked them to share some of their top swimming tips for babies and toddlers.

The happy glow of Spring is upon us! The little tiny animals are coming out of hibernation stretching and yawning after a long dark winter. New flowers are popping up giving us the delights of Daffodils, Bluebells and Tulips.001407P-lifestyle

It might not be open toe sandal weather just yet but we feel you can fully indulge in all that Spring brings us. We have had a very busy April at Stickerscape HQ, Easter collaborations with Miffy and a Spring giveaway with Sophie la Girafe. Not one but two brand new wall stickers collections have been born in this new season, we hope you love them as much as we do. So, before you pop out to peg out the washing have a quick peek at our spanking new wall stickers collections and indulge in all of the delights of Spring!

The first of the new designs features some Spring themed wall stickers for our Woodland Friends collection. The Woodland Spring Tree wall sticker pack (£32.00) (pictured right) can be purchased as the tree on it's own, or can have a animal bundle pack added (£48.00 including the animal pack). We also feature an alternative Woodland Spring Tree with Blossom (£40.00) (pictured left), which is also available with an additional animal bundle pack. 001408P-lifestyle-2The final design in the Spring woodland collection is a Spring Woodland branch (£18.00) which is available facing either left or right to accomodate your nursery room layout.

All these designs are special editions and form part of the Woodland Friends collection which have been designed by the wonderfully talented Dutch illustrator Anita Stargardt. Her timeless illustrations are ideal for both girls and boys, and this wall sticker range has the potential to work for your family right from the baby through the toddler years and beyond.

So where to start I hear you cry! For ease find below a list (we all love a list!)
