Using musluv as a baby carrier sun shade

Baby carriers, such as those by ergobaby and BabyBjorn, make it easy to carry your baby everywhere outdoors. But with little legs and arms poking out, what is the best way to protect them against the sun’s UV rays, without them getting too warm?

With a UPF rating of 50+ (excellent protection), musluv baby sun covers are a flexible choice as a sun shade for a baby carrier. 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. 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, as needed.

To help keep your baby cool and comfortable, musluv covers are made from layers of pure cotton muslin which are breathable and have been independently tested as being highly air permeable, so that the air flows freely through the fabric.

By combining excellent sun protection and high-quality cotton muslin, musluv covers are uniquely suited to the task of protecting young, delicate skin.  

Find out about using your multi-use musluv cover as a breastfeeding cover, a pram cover, a stroller cover or a rear car window baby shade. Musluv covers can also be used as a light stroller blanket or simple drape.


“I was concerned about the cost mainly. It’s difficult to tell quality when you are buying off the internet. But the product is so amazing, it’s worth the price and make my life heaps easier. It’s actually so useful I'm planning to gift these to some friends of mine as it's not something people are that aware of. I didn’t realise how much I needed it until I had it.”
