I’ve been wearing the Bamberoo soft structured carrier around with my 3.5 year old, 35 lb tall boy. This is a carrier that is remarkably comfortable with such a heavy kid. I could wear him around for a good amount of time in this. The body is tall enough that he can stuff his arms inside.
I love the styling on this. I love how the chest belt matched the print of the carrier, rather than just plain webbing like you normally see.
Everything about this carrier is stylish. This is the middle size of Bamberoos. There is a “baby” size and a “toddler” size as well.
The nitty gritty:
-Slightly contoured 16″X17″ darted body will give a more comfortable seat for
the little ones.
-Shaped sweatshirt style hood, that adjusts with a drawstring and cord lock. When the hood scrunched down to the smallest setting it’ll fit smaller babies On the largest setting it’ll fit a 2-3 yo toddler. (The hoody style hood works better on bigger babies, functioning as a sun shade, rain hood, hiding spot.)
-Shoulder straps has 16.5″ long padding
-The waist is very slightly curved, padded with polyfoam, adjust from 28″-48″ also with double adjustable buckles.
This carrier also has the elastics to tie up any dangling webbing. I’ve talked before about how much I love that feature on a carrier.
My nursling is too small for this carrier, so I can’t comment on that.
I really like soft structured carriers with toddler aged kids. They are in that “pick me up, put me down” sort of stage, so it’s nice to have something that is easy and fast to get them in and out of. The waist belt makes this supportive for even a heavy child.
I tried this out with a toddler I had on hand and took some pics.
Oh the adorableness!
I LOVE toddler wearing. In that busy stage, so full of strong emotions, it is so wonderful to have those quiet, connecting moments that babywearing brings.
I am really enjoying the resurgence in wearing that the influx of carriers has brought about with my big boy. This is definitely one of the carriers I reach for first to wear him. It’s amazing, even though he’s so grown up these days, he still has moments where he needs to be a little guy, to just snuggle up close. Babywearing or preschooler-wearing, in a solid carrier like the Bamberoo, makes it so much easier to be the parent I want to be to two littles.
