I am a self-proclaimed baby carrier junkie. I love having my children close and using a carrier is a great way to keep them close and comfortable while allowing us the opportunity to interact with one another and explore our environment. One of my favorite recent finds is the Classic Carrier by Kokopax.
The Classic Carrier is made for children from age 6 months to 2 years (or 35 pounds). It is made specifically as a back carrier and positions baby at eye-level, granting them a 360 degree view of the world around them—an ideal position for all children, but especially the older infant and toddler.
Kokopax carriers are great for dads! Many fathers are intimidated by baby wearing and shy away from more feminine carriers. The Kokopax, on the other hand, seems quite masculine due to its backpack styling which makes dads much more comfortable. It also comes in a wide range of fun, unique prints, making it easy for mom and dad to decide on a style that works for the whole family.
The Classic Carrier is made of 100 percent cotton canvas and features a sturdy anodized aluminum frame. It’s a great, safe way to enjoy the outdoors with your little one and grants the entire family the opportunity to enjoy an active lifestyle.
When choosing a carrier it is important to consider how you’ll be using it. The Kokopax is very user friendly making it an ideal choice for a quick jaunt around the mall or an all out family hike-fest.
I’ve tested carriers that were so complicated they required another person to put the carrier on and load baby inside – totally not the case here. The Kokopax is very easy to load your infant or toddler into. It even features a convenient kickstand for safe, easy loading into its 5-point safety harness.
The Classic Carrier features an easy to adjust frame so mom and dad can conveniently take turns enjoying toting their little sprout along. It is also a super comfortable carrier. It features soft shoulder straps and a nicely padded waist support.
Kokopax also stocks an eco-friendly version of their Classic Carrier, the Eco-Classic Carrier. Be sure to check it out, along with Kokopax’s entire fun line.
