While in there, I also got lots of compliments, and lots of questions about it. And to make it even neater, I really think the name will stick. I mean who could forget the name Kokopax when you ask about it because you liked what you saw?
Not an easily forgotten name like some things, like my kids names.
Some of the features I love about this one. The adjustments are easily made on the carrier, and thats a good thing considering most people who use it may have more than one kid with them and be by themselves. Alright maybe not most, but mostly me! Also with the bar that opens out to allow the carrier to stand on ground without falling over, so you can easily put your little one in there. Plus it has a harness system inside, you never know when they might try and figure out that they can move. I know mine started to bounce (he really enjoys his bouncer) inside the carrier. Also my husband and I are not anywhere near the same sizing, he's 6 ft and I'm just over 5ft. He tried on the carrier and we never actually adjusted any of the straps. He was able to put him on with no issues.
It was so cool seeing him wear it. We went over to his parents house this weekend where lots of family were in town visiting as well, and my husband showed it off for me and didn't complain. For that, I gave him the left over pudding and gumbo to take for lunch today.
All in all, this is a great carrier, lots of great features to it, It really does what it needs to do, comfortable, and safely.
Also check out the story behind the carrier, they have a neat little timeline graphic on the page giving details about how the kokopax carrier came about. I must say I really think the way the name was thought of was pretty neat and interesting! They have other baby products as well, I'm really liking the diaper totes, those fabrics are beautiful!
I also have to admit, I was a little worried about it when I first saw it. I thought it was going to be hard to use, and hard to adjust and can't forget uncomfortable. But it wasn't. It really was easy to get on and off without help.
The only down fall, as this is the first time I've ever carried on my back instead of front. My littlest really loves my hair, and he has better access to it back there. But I will have to admit, even in the front he manages to grab my hair too. I'm thinking I just need to shave my hair off and let it grow back when he's like 5.
This carrier gets four thumbs up. My husband loves it, and so do I!
