I'm looking at a UV protective sunshade that covers the whole buggy, not just a canopy


We used ours A LOT. Don't know if Maclaren does them though :-(

Mine is a P&Ts double....

That is our life for 6months/year. And with summer sport it is harder & harder to avoid sun, here in Aus 11-3pm are the "high risk" hours, (10-2 if in a place that clocks don't change)

We use sunscreen lots (found Hamiltons the best but it is an Aussie one) & my fair headed red-head, can play cricket for 3 hours or be at the beach for 3hours (even in the middle of the day) with that one & not get burnt... he burns in 10mins without sunscreen, so I know it works well KWIM.  My boys have a rash shirt & board shorts for swimmers, infact I don't think we ever (DH & me included) have ever had our shoulders & thighs exposed... neck to knee & elbows all the way around here.

Thanks Kate, what is a rash shirt?

I think the sunshade I have seen on eBay will be ok for the Maclaren, although the second hand ones are going for up to 30 I might aswell buy a new one ::)
Good news is MIL has offered to buy the wetsuits :)
