Welcome Baby: Kokopax City Carrier Review

I already feel like I have my hands full, and I only have one child! How do you moms of 4, 5, or 6+ kids do it? I don't know. I'm excited for baby E to become a big sister soon, she'll finally have a play mate. I'll need all the help I can get, even if I get it from a baby carrier. I'll be trying out the Kokopax City Carrier in Fog (pictured above) sent to us for review with our new bundle. 

This Kokopax can be used with babies up to 35 pounds and I have already tried it with my two and a half year old who only weights 26 pounds. I was six months pregnant at the time, so that wasn't very easy. My immediate thought after carrying her for only five minutes - there is no way I would be able to carry a baby in it past 20 pounds or so. Granted I'm very slender and petite, I am only 5'2" and weight around 100 pounds myself normally. My husband would be able to comfortably carry our toddler in it. The fit was also pretty tight for her even though she is slim and small for her age. I don't think it would be very comfortable for very chubby, large babies. I think the ideal age for carrying a baby in the Kokopax is about 3 to 18 months, for myself personally.   

I love the design and the lightweight frame of the carrier. I can certainly see myself using it around the house, for food shopping, day trips, and travel. Because it is so lightweight, it doesn't seem cumbersome. the kickstand makes it fairly easy to put on with baby in it. The adjustable lumbar doesn't go quite high enough for my 5'2" height, but it's close. I love how it places the baby high to see the world, the simple modern design, and the price of this particular one at under $100 - less than most other framed carriers. It is available at many online retailers, including Amazon

Kokopax also makes the Classic Carrier ($149.99) and the Eco-Classic Carrier ($179.99), as well as cute totes, sunhats, and organic accessories.

  1. Looks like it would be a little bulky because of the frame. The lady in the picture looks a little city to be wearing such a big carrier.
