Patapum Toddler Carrier

100% Positive Reviews


Pros: High weight limit, straps distribute weight well, extra side straps.

Cons: Hard to adjust side straps when on

We got this carrier because at 6 months my daughter was 22 pounds, and we knew we would want to carry her past the weight limits of some of the other carriers.  I used this carrier until she got to be tall enough to hit the back of my knees with her feet, which was at around 3.5 years old.  I could still carry her in it at this point, but it would be kind of funny.


Both my husband and I could wear it and liked it a great deal. This one is good for older babies and toddlers, not for infants. The only thing I had a problem with was adjusting the side straps once it was on me, while alone.  Those really do need to be adjusted with the child in it. Once adjusted they stayed put nicely.

Patapum Toddler Carrier

Patapaum's Baby and Toddler Carriers allow you to continue shopping, walking, hiking, or doing housework while you are being hugged by the one you love, your baby! Heavy babies and toddlers are easily managable using the lightweight yet super strong Patapum Toddler Carrier. The shoulder straps are attached to the hipbelt, distributing weight very efficiently. Side straps give back support to the toddler keeping him close to the center of gravity. The waist belt can be adjusted up to 55" which makes it perfect to share between wearers.

Another unique quality, is the body of the carrier can be tucked and snapped to the waist belt (sleeping hood must be detached).

Baby's held close to wearer's center of gravity, allowing for natural movement while walking or working. Large leg openings to avoid chafing of baby's skin.
