Covering A Stroller On Shabbat

Covering A Stroller On Shabbat

One may not cover a stroller or a cradle on Shabbat in order to protect the baby from the sun or rain. However, if the cover already covered one tefach of the stroller before Shabbat started then the rest may be covered as well. When removing the cover in that case, the stroller may not be completely uncovered. A tefach must remain covered. The same thing applies to the covers that are built in as part of many strollers, the cover may only be used if it covered a tefach before Shabbat started. Folding beds, chairs, tables and children's play pens may all be opened and closed on Shabbat. It is also permissible to lengthen one's table by adding a leaf.
