Our youngest baby is just shy of 9 months old. She's a crawling, climbing, standing, smiling sensation.We all adore her.
She alternates between my arms, her daddy's arms, her sisters' arms, and doing acrobatics around our house all on her own. When our arms get tired or the late afternoon grumpies visit, I like to put her on my back to keep my hands free for cooking, cleaning, and kid-corraling.
Designed by a mom of four in Las Vegas, the kokpax classic carrier has been one of my go-to carriers for the past few months. I adore the vintage look and no-nonsense loadability (no straps, buckles, or wads of fabric). It's also a good choice for warmer weather since the baby is in her own space.
The pattern shown in the video is the Garden Design (no longer sold), but you can choose one of six patterns to suit your sense of style. There is also an eco-friendly option.
Available at Amazon for approximately $140-$150, the carrier works for babies from 6months to 2 years and includes a green carry case.
