How to use the Bebe Trek sun cover as a baby carrier shade

Baby carriers can make outdoor adventures so much easier with a baby. But with their arms and legs exposed, how do you protect them from the sun? Especially when they’re under six months and can’t wear sunscreen. Or it’s too hot for long clothing.

A simple solution is to use UPF 50+ rated sun covers that block over 98% of the sun’s UV rays. 

Bebe Trek’s Multifunctional magnetic sun cover not only has the highest UPF rating possible, it’s inbuilt magnetic corners mean you can easily secure the cover around your baby carrier straps to create a cool, protective shade barrier. No struggling with knots or ties, or worrying about the cover slipping away. It can also be quickly removed when its no longer required.

There are many ways you can use the sun cover as a baby carrier shade, depending on your preference.

  • Leave the cover dangle freely down for maximum air flow. 

  • Bring the corners around your back and snap the magnets together to keep the sun cover in place. 

  • If you feel the sun cover is too long, simply fold to your desired height and snap the magnetic corners around the fabric to secure in place.

  • Use the included adjustable strap to create an ‘apron’ and place over your neck - no magnets required. 

  • Bring the edge up over the baby’s head for sun protection when needed.

Made from a stretch bamboo blend, the Bebe Trek sun cover helps keep your baby cool and comfortable, even in warmer weather.  Bamboo fabric is naturally thermoregulating and moisture wicking, to help keep your baby cool in summer and warm in winter. The covers have also been independently lab-tested for air permeability for better airflow. 

The Bebe Trek Multifunctional magnetic sun cover also makes a great pram shade, window shade and portable shade sail.
