Kokopax - To Carry Your Precious Cargo, On Your Back

Babywearing is by far one of my favorite parts about having a baby! But now that I've got a 25 lb. squirmy 1-year old, and I myself have back problems, babywearing has been pretty minimal these days. Until now!!

I have considered a backpack carrier, but they all look so bulky to me. This backpack carrier by Kokopax is not only the perfect size, it comes in several adorable prints! I mean c'mon...part of babywearing is being fashionable, right?

This carrier is SO easy, comfortable and SAFE to use. I'm able to put my baby in it and put him on my back without the help of anyone else, something I haven't been able to do with any other carriers.

Just flip the "kickstand" out and set it on the floor. Load baby and strap him in with the 5 point safety harness. Then carefully pick it up and maneuver it onto your back. Pull the "kickstand" back in, which acts as a footrest for baby.

The Kokopax Classic Carrier is so comfortable since it only weighs 2.7 lbs. The shoulder straps are padded, and the waist support is padded AND adjustable. I have been able to wear my guy in this for hours at a time, and he absolutely loves it! He has a great view of everything, and I'm still able to reach back to hand him things, talk to him, etc. I can also wear this confidently knowing my baby is in a safe carrier! It is one of only 3 frame infant carriers that has been approved by the JPMA (Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association). In my opinion, this is one carrier every family needs in their babywearing stash.

GET YOUR OWN!! (with a coupon!) The Kokopax Classic Carrier is available for purchase on their website. It retails for $149.99. Use code smr2009 to receive 10% off your purchase.


  1. Oh, I want one of those! Maybe for Christmas from my loving husband!

  2. what makes this different or better than a carrier like the beco? I've been wanting a back carrier but don't know what to do!


  3. This is an adorable carrier, I just love the fabric patterns! As a frequent flyer, I read at that this fits like a glove in the overhead compartment of a plane. Perfect!
