Kokopax Backpack Baby Carrier

Krazy For Kokopax Carrier!

My weekly trip to the grocery store can be harried with a two-year-old and an infant, but if I can put one of them on my back then life is easier. When Kokopax sent us a backpack to review, I jumped at the opportunity to test it out and lighten my load. A fan of the classic Baby Bjorn, I wasn't sure that Kokopax would make chores any simpler than the front baby carrier. Certainly the Bjorn and other models like it allow for closeness and warmth, but the Kokopax gives mom the freedom to hold a full load in her arms while baby sits pretty behind her.

Read more to see what I like about it and what I would change. Aside from loving the cheerful floral print, the cushy cotton canvas seat offers a five-point harness that keeps baby snugly strapped in. The padded straps and waistband are soft on mama's shoulders, though carrying a 20-pound baby will start to take a toll no matter how well a carrier is manufactured. The lightweight aluminum frame hardly adds much weight (total weight is 2.7 pounds) and folds out, making it a cinch to strap baby up and set baby down.

If the tot bores easily, the creators attached a ring for detachable toys and a pocket to store other necessary items. Perfect for vacations and jaunts through an airport, the nifty carrier fits in airplane overheads! I'm leaving my stroller at the ticket counter from now on. Kokopax can handle children up to 35 pounds or two years old. Here are two things I would change about the carrier. The hefty price is hard to swallow if you aren't planning on using it much. Though, I also feel like a chest strap or a waist buckle would add to the wearer's sense of security as their tot grows older and more rambunctious.
