So we need a new backpack. We don't need a serious, heavyduty, serious hiker backpack, but one that is well padded, fairly light, and easy to get on and off. And I really like having the kickstand feature (do all of them have this?) because it helps me get it on and off when I'm by myself.
Which ones do you like, or not like, and why?
i got mine from a mama here for only $50, so check the trading post first before buying a new one. i love that i can wear it in so many different ways, and that it fits my 6 foot 4 husband and fits my 5 foot 4 big busted frame too!
Mom to two boys, 2002 and 2004 and a bouncing baby due in June, 2012!
I've taken several long walks with no discomfort at all, and it's easy to get Dd in and out quickly, like in an airport secuirty line. We still haven't mastered getting in without help, but I think that will come soon.
It was 105 bucks at http://www.kidssource.com/child_carriers.htm

Ds absolutely loves the backpack, and we really enjoy going for walks together - all 3 of us. We live in a big city, so it's great to be able to put him in the backpack and walk down the the grocery store, get some take out, or whatever. Plus, even though I use the stroller quite a bit as well, I feel so much better when ds is up high out of everyone's reach, especially with a lot of traffic and busy streets.
