{Everything Summer} Kokopax City Carrier Review and Baby Sun Hat Giveaway {CLOSED}

The Kokopax City Carrier is a great way to carry your baby and toddler where there isn’t any stroller accessibility.  Going on a hiking trip?  The beach?  It’s also nice to have when you don’t want to lug around a stroller to the grocery store, etc.  It’s even great to use around the house! 
    

I was given the wonderful opportunity to work with Kokopax on a review and we were sent a Kokopax City Carrier for our use and review.  We absolutely love it and the past few weeks, we got a lot of use out of it.  We went to the park to climb the “Mountain”, we took a couple zoo trips, and we also went to the caves this past weekend.  When we went hiking, of course there was no way we could take a stroller so we used the Kokopax City Carrier and Little E loved it!  He likes riding in it better than his stroller most of the time!
This was from our trip at the park
The Kokopax City Carrier is very lightweight so it doesn’t really add any extra weight to the weight of your precious cargo your are carrying on your back.  You should make all your adjustments to the carrier without baby in it.  The shoulder straps are really easy to adjust and you can also adjust the lumbar support to make a secure and comfortable fit.  The kickstand pulls out easily too.
When you are adjusting the child straps, you should have baby sitting in the carrier.  The child straps include shoulder straps and a crotch strap and it’s almost like being secured in a car seat.  The straps were every easy to fit and the excess straps are hidden in the back pouch of the carrier.  The back pouch doesn’t hold much but you can fit a couple small things in there. 
Every time you use it, you should place the carrier on the level ground with the kickstand all the way out.  Load him up and fasten him in then you are ready to carry him on your back.  It is recommended that you have assistance when doing this and I agree.  Little E is 25 pounds and that’s a lot of precious cargo to do it by yourself.  Sometimes he would even put one of his little feet on the other side of the lumbar support so either my hubby or I (depending on who was carrying him) would have to make sure his feet wasn’t between the lumbar support and our back.
There is a toy ring to attach your child’s favorite toys or you can even purchase Koko the monkey (sold separately) for your child’s entertainment.  The Kokopax City Carrier is very comfortable which I was surprised at that.  I was curious to how comfortable it would be carrying that much weight on my back.  Both my hubby and I think it’s very comfortable.  It was definitely made really well with comfort in mind!  The age/weight recommendations are for ages 6 months to 2 years or up to 35 pounds!  It’s definitely something every parent can get a lot of use out of!

Like I said, we love it and Little E especially loves it!  He likes to be able to see everything that is going on and he gets a great view of everything.  Plus he gets to be carried without mommy of daddy getting jelly arms if we have to just pick him up to carry him.  It definitely makes our summer trips a lot easier when we can’t use a stroller.  Our last hiking trip, he was in it for about an hour and he wasn’t bothered at all and enjoyed every minute of it!
