CoziGo Bassinet Cover Review

Disclosure: I was gifted this product in order to review it.

As an ex flight attendant and parent who loves travelling, I was very keen on trying out the CoziGo Sleep Easy cover as soon as I had heard about it.

Any travel product that helps my baby sleep easier, especially on the ultra long haul flight from UK to Australia, instantly grabs my attention and this CoziGo bassinet cover stood out!

This Cozigo review covers both its main uses; as a universal portable UV stroller cover for babies and toddlers AND as an airline bassinet cover for an infant.

The old way was duct tape and a blanket before Cozigo!

No more using duct tape and a blanket to cover up the cabin lights on flights! Does it help baby sleep? Absolutely, YES!


The CoziGo is a universal travel blackout cover which has dual use: The CoziGo is an airline baby bassinet cover AND a portable UV stroller cover aka a breathable sunshade to aid sleep on the go.

  • The Cozigo can be used on multiple types of strollers and airplane bassinets or cribs.
  • It has various zips and flaps to check on your baby and to increase air flow.

I first got to trial it when flying with a baby on a Malaysia Airlines and Emirates flight with a bassinet seat, all the way from the UK to Australia with my 11 month old, and then on the way back with my 1 year old and numerous times since.

Cozigo Travel Shade Review

Key Features of the Cozigo


My first impressions of the Cozigo travel cover was that it was small, lightweight (600g) and compact; making it an incredibly portable product. A must as there is already so much more stuff to bring when traveling or flying with babies.

It comes in a handy zipped travel pouch which has a Velco strap which can attach to your bag or stroller. (I just put it inside the zipped part of my carry on).


There is an outer zipped plastic cover too. Although I had opened it initially to try out on the pram, (as it doubles as a stroller sleep cover and UV sunshade too!) It fits on every single stroller and almost every airline bassinet.

I was very excited at the prospect of using it attached to a plane bassinet and curious to see how it worked in the smaller confines of an aircraft environment.


The Cozigo is made of a lightweight, breathable mesh material, with zipped sections to increase airflow and to check on baby. It blocks out light and UV rays to provide shade and sun protection to promote sleep.

The CoziGo was easy to open, and it didn’t spring out and jar my husband in the eye, which is always a bonus, as I can be clumsy!

However, be aware that it has a pop out mechanism, so do make sure you have the space around you. It was so incredibly easy to attach to the bassinet, with the two clips on either side and then the elasticated edges to tuck over the sides.

There are lots of peep holes to check on baby, which still keep them shielded from the light but allow airflow and ventilation.

Now, for the most important bit and the bit you really want to know.

Did the CoziGo work and did baby sleep?


We successfully had our baby sleep on all our flights. Our first sector was a night flight, departing at 22.30 on a Malaysian Airline A380. After the seatbelt sign was switched off and the bassinet put up, it was gone 11pm and consequently we had one very tired, cranky baby.

The cabin lights were bright as the service was about to begin, so I set up the CoziGo as soon as I was able and popped our daughter in for a snooze. After a little bit of soothing, she was fast asleep – for 9 hours! Genius! The convenience of the Cozigo had won me over already!

Apart from having to remove her once from the bassinet (due to turbulence), my baby thankfully just resettled and went back to sleep.

Considering the inflight service did take quite a while and it seemed that someone forgot to turn the lights off, my family and I were very glad of the CoziGo –   otherwise it would have been gone 2am until the cabin was dark and my daughter was getting to the point of complete over-tiredness.

She woke up according to UK time, so had her breakfast, played for a little bit and then napped again in the bassinet with the CoziGo for another couple of hours just before landing. Great result!

Safety wise, we had no issues with using it from the crew, their only stipulations were the baby had to be facing them in the aisle and removed if the seat belt sign was on. (Note Qantas and Virgin Atlantic allow you to keep babies in bassinets during any turbulence, as their restraints are slightly different.)

We also used the CoziGo on our day flight to Melbourne with Emirates on a B777 with no issues, as she napped beautifully, and also on our return night flights with no issue at all.

Do all airlines allow the CoziGo Bassinet Cover?

Most airlines do allow the CoziGo, but check with your airline first. They usually state on their website in the travelling with children section or comfort device section if they have policy. British Airways specifically mention they approve it on their website. Emirates state Cozigo is the “only comfort device/sleeper permitted to be used on board.” 

If you are flying with Virgin Atlantic, it may be worth using the term “Bassinet Cover” as some airline policies, do not mention specific brands, whereas others take the stance if the particular brand is not approved, it won’t be allowed.

If you are pretty sure your comfort device is permitted then my top tips are:

  1. Be patient and polite – as crew are not used to seeing these type of products.

2. Politely ask them if they can check their manual when they have a moment (they always have it on them).

3. Advise the flight attendant that it may come under comfort device, bassinet cover, bassinet canopy rather than the actual brand name of CoziGo.

4. It also worth taking a screenshot of the airlines website, in case the crew are not familiar with the comfort device and think it is restricted. Here are some examples of airlines which approve the CoziGo on their website:

Virgin Atlantic approve the CoziGo bassinet cover canopy , but do not mention its brand name on the website. Their safety team however call it a ‘bassinet cover’, so crew may be more familiar with that term. See more details here

Using the CoziGo as a Sunshade on a Stroller.

The CoziGo has a very lightweight, practical design, meaning there is lots of space inside the travel stroller, which is very handy if little ones wriggle or kick a lot in their sleep.

It’s a universal stroller shade or sunshield, so it will fit on most pushchairs, strollers or prams as a breathable sunshade offering UV protection under the canopy. We have used it on a larger Bugaboo stroller and the Babyzen Yoyo.

✔️ Ventilation and Airflow

The long side zips and peepholes mean you can have this sunshade very well ventilated with plenty of airflow. If baby is awake, you also have the option to adjust them to their needs to keep them in the shade whilst being cozy and comfortable.

✔️ UV Protection

This compact and breathable sunshade (sunshield) blocks out 90% of light and offers UV 50+ protection. The shade is fully breathable with ventilation zips and which can help to increase airflow.

Pros and Cons of the Cozigo popup stroller cover and airplane bassinet cover


The Cozigo is a brilliant lightweight baby sleep product that really works. A little pricey if you are planning to just use it as a bassinet cover and are not a frequent flyer, but it’s worth every penny if you use it as your daily pram cover and fly long haul often with your baby.

We love that it is super easy to use, portable, compact, versatile and actually helps get baby to sleep, and stay asleep!

If you are travelling with a baby or a toddler, it’s an essential part of your baby travel gear; friends always ask to borrow my Cozigo sleep canopy.

I often suggest it as a gift for new parents too!
CoziGo (affiliate link) retails at AUS $99.95 and can be shipped worldwide and shipping is FREE to UK, Australia USA, Canada from their site.

It’s currently not available on the USA, UK, or Australia Amazon sites. (Note: Cozigo and Fly Babee are the same product but the earlier version with a name change.)

Flying With A Baby was sent a CoziGo to trial and review.  As always, all my opinions are truthful and I would never endorse a product I don’t genuinely love and continue to use.

Save for later?

Our cozigo broke after one month of use. We reached out to the company for assistance on fixing the item and was told that it wasn’t fixable and their solution was to buy another one at 50% off. Disappointed in the product and customer service.

I’m so sorry to hear this. We used ours for a few years and had no issues :-(

Hi lovely, great review - however, as i was about to buy it, i checked the Amazon reviews and turns out BA no longer allow these as of April 2019 :( (We are going to Durban with BA, so sadly no use then!) Just wanted to let you know.

Hi Maggie,

Thank you for your kind comments. Please don’t worry, the official BA website says they are permitted. Sometimes Amazon isn’t up to date with the latest travel information. Here is the link to BA which a includes a picture of the CoziGo. Have a fab trip to Durban!

Hi, Do you know whether this would fit over a carseat? We are traveling with our young one in a few months, and while I think she will be too big for the bassinets, we are planning to have her in her car seat on the plane. Thanks, Jen

Hi yes it does!

Hi, Do you know if they can be used on Qatar airways flights?? Thanks, Kate

Wow that sounds like it was great - hopefully the other airlines will catch up soon!

Thanks for sharing your review on #TriedTested this week x

Thanks Colette. It's an amazing product. Unfortunately the airlines don't provide it, but its duel purpose means it's a good investment!
