Greetings Moms and Dads!
Today I have the pleasure of telling you about an awesome carrier that absolutely is a must-have for on-the-go moms. I have several carriers, most of which end up crumpled up in a corner of our baby’s closet. They’re difficult to maneuver, challenging to secure, and impossible to do anything once you have it on. In the end they all seemed to be more trouble than they were worth. I was thrilled when Kokopax agreed to let me try out their carrier. Kokopax is an ingenious design – taking the form of a backpack – and distributes the weight across your upper body so you never feel like you are carrying more than a small package.
Our first venture with the Kokopax was to our Natural Science Park and Museum – a two-hour journey through hiking trails, walking bridges, dirt paths, and marsh. My eighteen month old, hopped right in and absolutely loved it. I was skeptical about how this venture would go with our new carrier, since she had never been exposed to a backpack carrier before, but it went without a hitch – in fact it went great! With very little effort, I was able to sling her in the carrier over my shoulder and off we went. She loved the trip, and unlike most of our other carriers, she never felt uncomfortable or in an odd position. Just as important, after more than an hour, I (and my little gal) were still going strong. Best of all my hands were free the entire time allowing me to focus on supporting my daughter on my back and attending to the baby when she needed me. I was able to hold both girls at once.
A few things that really make the Kokopax awesome – first is the fabric – it’s 100% natural cotton fabric and eco-friendly dyes. Also, the shoulder straps are incredible thick and padded making them really comfy on the shoulders. There’s also an optional padded waist belt that stows in the carrier if you choose not to use it. The carrier has a 5-point safety harness which ensures that we’re both safe and secure. The carrier is made of really lightweight material so it’s a dream to carry, and it has a neat and convenient kickstand to make it a cinch to load and unload. It can be used in many places like around the house, at the grocery store, airport or even on an outdoor adventure.
Voted Pregnancy Magazine’s best carrier in March 2009, it’s a wonderful buy, and a great gift idea for new moms, or for a shower, or the holidays. For a limited time, Kokopax is offering a 10 percent discount off the purchase price – visit www.kokopax.com and use the promo code fcl2009 when ordering. This referral code is good UNTIL APRIL 2010! I am SURE you will love it as much as I did and your little one will as well!
Be sure to look out for Samantha diaper totes coming as well. Available at retail in December 2009/January 2010, these adorable diaper/everyday bags will match the adorable fabric on the Kokopax carriers.
