DIY Stroller Sun Canopy

DIY Stroller CanopyIf you have a child and own a stroller, you’ve realized by now that the sun canopy provided on most strollers does a superb job of protecting about 50% of your child from dangerous sun rays. Our child is strikingly pale so aside from using sunscreen I try to keep him shaded most of the time. A woman stopped me on the street to comment on my DIY sun canopy so I thought I’d share in case others are having trouble keeping it shady.

Use a muslin blanket (I love aden + anais), tie one end around the bottom of the seat so it doesn’t blow away, and drape the other end over the handle bar to allow extra air flow (and easy peeking at the baby).
