Toddler Carriers & Preschool Carriers

With everything going on in a toddler's world, so much to absorb and learn, and so much to cope with, the downtime and connection they must achieve when carried in a baby carrier is profound. Sometimes they just need a 20 minute nap/rest, and carrying is one way to manage it. They can be heavy, yes, but it's much more comfortable carrying them in a carrier on your back than trying to carry them in your arms. Ultimately, they'll be a happier child for that little reconnect and that's what's most important. It's never too late to start carrying your toddler in a sling! Plus, you get to go places you couldn't ordinarily go with a buggy, or if you think they'll get too tired - think hiking in the hills, or treks in the forest. A toddler carrier will let you walk as far as you want over any kind of terrain you like without being slowed down.

Toddler Carriers

 

The best toddler carriers and slings for your toddler or older child. Just because they are bigger and heavier, doesn't mean you have to stop carrying your toddler. Sure, they can be heavy, but carrying them in a toddler carrier or sling is much easier than carrying them in your arms, uncomfortably swapping from arm to arm every few minutes.

 

What's the Difference Between a Baby Carrier and a Toddler Carrier?

 

Toddler carriers are just as safe, comfortable, and beautiful as baby carriers for newborns and babies, and will allow you to carry your child when they need up or when you want to hike or trek distances or terrain that would be too far for little legs, or too rough for buggies.

 

Toddler carriers come in lots of different shapes and sizes, and are often called by different names - toddler backpack, baby backpack, child carrier pack, baby carrier packs - you get the idea. But they all do essentially the same thing, although carriers like the Deuter Kid Comfort or the Kid Comfort Active are framed types, which whilst popular with dads and will allow your toddler to sleep, are often big and bulky, difficult to travel with and make it difficult to carry extra gear (given that this type of carrier is so big to begin with).

 

What is a Toddler Carrier?

 

A toddler carrier is just a bigger version of smaller baby carriers, but are designed to carry toddlers and older children as safely and as comfortably as possible, while they relax next to you. They may not want to be carried for long, and it may only be because they're a bit tired or have walked too far, but a toddler carrier will allow you to meet this need and help them whilst still having your hands free to get on with the everyday, or to go on hikes and adventures to places that you ordinarily wouldn't be able to go, if you had a toddler in a buggy in tow. All the carriers are unisex, so with a bit of adjustment you can share the carrier with your partner

 

Is There a Carrier for a 2 Year Old?

 

Yes! There are lots of carriers for 2 year olds. Just because they are older doesn't mean you have to stop carrying them, or indeed that they want not to be carried. From the Ergo Baby 360, to the Baby Tula Free-To-Grow, to the Isara The One, there are lots of carriers that are comfortable to wear, ergonomic and supportive for baby, and won't leave you with back ache or shoulder strain.

 

What Age do Child Carriers Go Up To?

 

Most front baby carriers are usable from birth and then up to at least 12 months of age. From around 6 months, most children are ready to progress to the back carrying position. Most carriers allow you to carry up until around 2 years of age, but some like the Isara The One, the Tula Preschool Carrier and the Little Frog XL Carrier allow you to carry until your child is 5 or 6 years old.

Now, we all know that as our little ones get bigger and bigger, of course we carry them less. Yet there are still so many occasions when your big kid is just too tired to finish that hike or that weekly shopping trip. Sometimes they’re over-tired, overstimulated and just plain done, and that's when they need up.

 

Some of our kids need to be carried - kids with more complex needs or additional needs, for example. These carriers give you and them the freedom to get out to places you may not otherwise be able to reach. It gives you a way to carry them that’s easier on your body and keeps your hands free for other tasks that need handled at the same time.

 

Can You Hike With Regular Baby Carriers?

 

Yes, you can hike with a regular baby carrier! You don't need one of those big framed carriers for carrying your toddler on your back - they're too big, too bulky, look really uncomfortable, and you don't need to go to the expense of buying a framed carrier that will just allow you to carry your child on your back on a hike. A regular toddler carrier, indeed one that you have perhaps used since your baby was smaller, and one that you can use on a normal day-to-day basis around the house, is much better - it's comfortable, supportive, ergonomic, soft, easy to transport or carry when you aren't carrying your toddler, and you won't have to go to any extra expense.

 

How Do You Carry Toddlers on a Hike?

 

Forget carrying your toddler in your arms, or up on your shoulders - the most comfortable way to carry a toddler hiking is on your back in a toddler carrier. They'll be happy and comfortable, they can still see what's going on around them and where they're going, and if they want to nap they can; even heavy toddlers are comfortable carried on your back. But you'll still be able to trek where you want to trek, you won't be slowed down by tired little legs, and you'll have your hands free to carry other things, hold your partner's hand, or have something to eat and drink!
