Stroller Sunshade? Protect-A-Bub Recos?
I'm needing a big sunshade / canopy for my stroller (Phil & Ted's Sport). I'm looking at a Protect-A-Bub --- eIther the Classic or Compact. Does anyone have one of these and can offer any opinions? I don't know the size difference b/w the 2, so leaning towards the Classic.
So What Happened?™
I got the Protect-A-Bub Classic and LOVE it so far! No more worrying endlessly about my daughter burning. It comes off easily, as I'm often popping the stroller in the car for outings. I also go the tandem Protect-A-Bub for my younger daughter. One off Amazon and one off Diapers.com. SO So So happy with this purchase for summertime!

I dont know the maker of the sunshade we had...It was not great though. I got mine at Babies R Us. The clips on it were not great and it moved all over the place. So, my opinion...look into anything but the brand they have a BBRU..
I just went and looked...it is Sunshine kids Juvenal Products...do not get that one!! it stinks!

I don't have the Protect-A-Bub, but I do have the Kiddopotamus Rayshade that is half the price! It has been good to me and my Graco stroller. It is quite large and you could take it back if it doesn't fit your P & T Sport! Maybe you could even try it in the store w/ your stroller or the display stroller. I got it at Babies-R-Us. Either way, you can't go wrong shading your kids!!

A cheaper alternative is to get the Summer Infant Ray Shade. It's about 15 dollars and will velcro on to any stroller... There's a lot of coverage, it's very flexible, and can easily fold away to sit in the basket of any stroller.

we have the Deluxe 3-in-1 Sunshade protect-a-bub b/c my child was less than 6 mos and we couldn't use sunscreen. it is a bit involved to attach with 4 strings but it gave great protection. i now have a new stroller and decided to get a cover that just goes over the babies legs like a blanket but stays put.
