I recently wrote a review on the LittleLife cross country S2 carrier which we bought for using with our baby daughter. Unlike some of the other carriers within this range, our carrier came with this Sunny Day Cover rather than us having to purchase this separately, which if we had had to buy ourselves, would have cost around £20, which you can buy on the likes of amazon.
This Sunny Day Cover is suitable for all Littelife Carriers, meaning it should have a good resale value. This cover has been designed to offer the child in the carrier protection from harmful UV rays, as well as a light shower. There is no way that this cover is suitable for use in heavy rain, and for this LittleLife have their own proper rain cover, but it is fine for throwing a light shower. The cover has a lightweight aluminium frame to it, which slots easily into the top of the carrier and the front can be secured with the velcro straps that come with the product, so once it has been attached, it stays in place very well.
The front of the cover is open, so baby can still see freely and be able to enjoy a breeze etc as they sit in the carrier. The side panels of the cover are made from breathable mesh which also lets a breeze through keeping a baby cool on a hot day. The other good feature of the product, is that it can be folded down to store easily.
Since getting our carrier we have used this sunny day cover quite a few times, mostly for protecting our daughter from the sun during that hot spell of weather a couple of weeks ago, but we have also used it when there is a light shower on. In terms of its usage in the sun, this cover does offer great sun protection however, it is still important to wear a sun hat on a child, as the front of their head is still slightly exposed. We used this a few times on the very hot days a few weeks ago and this cover also kept my daughter a lot cooler and she was able to enjoy the breeze coming through the mesh sides keeping her cool as well. In terms of protection from the rain, again a baby could do with a hood when wearing this cover as it doesn't fully protect baby's head from a shower, but it is a great way of keeping most of the rain out.
All in all, this is a great piece of kit for those with baby carriers from the Little Life range. It isn't going to keep baby dry in very heavy rain, but for sunny days and light rain days this is perfect.
The Sunny Day Cover will protect your child from potentially harmful UV rays and the occasional shower too. This cover uses a folding aluminium frame with a lightweight ripstop fabric canopy. It can be quickly and easily attached to your LittleLife child carrier. The side panels are made from fully breathable mesh that allows a good flow of air.
