First a background story…
Recently we have been reaching for the SSCs over the wraps, due to Miss A wanting up and down constantly when we are out and about, I have always loved my Boba 2g but I have had it since Miss C was little, it’s a little worn and started to become uncomfortable… It was a sad day… We also have an ergo we hate to love it, sure it’s handy but I really don’t find them that comfortable, the waistband digs and the buckle on it is frustrating. The Ergo just doesn’t work well for us, many people it does and it’s great, sadly we are not them. We also have a beautiful Wompat which is soft and squishy and I love it but just don’t reach for it for everyday use.
Not reaching for the wraps we needed to find a carrier that would work for us, enter the Kinderpack!
We bought ours from Woven Wraps Australia, After asking a few questions of course.
First thing we have to take into account is I am tiny and my husband is not, so not only does it have to fit myself comfortable without straps falling off me, it need to fit the husband. Turns out Natalie had fitted a few smaller mums with the Kinderpack and they worked well. So that sold us pretty much straight away.
We committed and ordered the Toddler size.
The carrier arrived on Friday, and we have used it ever since, I had to do the Kindy pick up, so I put Miss A on my back, the day was hot and windy! Babywearing is always going to be hotter then not Babywearing, the Koolnit fabric really made a difference in keeping Miss A and myself a little cooler, by that I mean we were not as hot and sweaty as usual, but still hot and sweaty
Feeding miss A to sleep at naps and night is also a lot better so win!
Today we had to take our dog for a walk so decided to get some photos of the carrier in use, now remember I said I was tiny? well I am only 149cm so the carrier and Miss A look massive.
Isn’t it pretty!
Our verdict of our first weekend using the Kinderpack: Love it! It is so easy to adjust, I am able to make the straps shorter!!! This is my favourite feature that’s for sure, every SSC I have while yes they fit pretty well, the straps were always a bit long so I felt like I couldn’t get Miss A or Miss C high enough. Husband wants to have a go? easy just adjust the straps and pop it on and off we go.
This will be used everyday several times a day from both myself and my husband. The only complaint we have had so far? we didn’t get two! If you are a tiny mum like me, I recommend giving the kinderpack a go. If you are able to try one before you buy even better.
Now that I have told you about our new love, here are some cute photos from our walk.
Miss C and Radar are great friends and today she got to run around with him, it was super cute.
And Miss A showed off her climbing skills
