Getting started with musluv

Congratulations on getting your new musluv cover.  We hope you and your baby enjoy using it outdoors.

We’ve put together a few tips, tricks and photos on how to use your cover so you can get the most from it. Just click on any section to start. 

Using musluv to shade your pram or stroller

We suggest experimenting at the beginning to find the best fit for your pram or stroller.

Sized to fit most single strollers and prams, musluv covers can be used as a diamond or square shape over the top to create the best fit for your particular pram.

Prams with "diamond" and "square on" covers

If your pram or stroller is small and there is an excess of material, you can try twisting or rolling the fabric, before tying the cover to the pram, or looping around a pram bar and tying to itself.

If your pram or stroller is long and you find you need more coverage in the length, try using it as a diamond shape.

To extend your stroller's own sun hood, you can try folding it in half to create a rectangle and tying to the pram handles, allowing it to hang over the front of the hood. 

Always use with the pram's (or stroller's) integrated hood extended. Make sure all corner ties are secured and the cover is taut enough that your baby cannot pull the cover over their face. Check on your baby regularly and leave side gaps to ensure a good flow of air for your baby's comfort, especially in hot weather. 

Using musluv for breastfeeding

One method for using your musluv sun protection baby cover for breastfeeding is to hold it as a diamond shape, tie the top corner onto (or tuck it under) the bra strap of the breast you are feeding from and tie the two free, diagonally opposite corners together at your hip level. Your baby will have plenty of room to feed without distraction under the cover and will be protected from insects and breezes.

Using musluv in your car 

Because musluv baby sun covers are flexible, they can be angled to block UV, whichever way the sunlight enters the car window. They can be tied to the car hardware (such as the grab handle, headrests or adult seatbelt buckles) or around the base of the car seat to create a shielding “wall” between the baby and the window.

Position your cover to allow a gap so you can still check your driving blind spots. Make sure all the ties are properly secured and that your baby cannot pull the cover over its face. 

Using musluv on your baby carrier

Using your musluv in a diamond shape for extra width

To create a cool, protective pocket of shade, simply tie the cover as a square (or diamond shape for extra width) around your hips. Then you can tie the top to the baby carrier straps if needed.

Alternatively you can tie the cover to the straps before you put the carrier on.

Your baby’s limbs will be well protected, and the front of the cover can be brought up over the back of the baby’s head to shade it as needed.

Remember to keep corner ties securely away from your baby’s face, neck, fingers and toes. Follow all current SIDS guidelines when using your sun protection cover, particularly at nap times.
