The Kokopax Classic Carrier

There comes a point where you just need to do what you need to do despite the fact that you have a baby.  And of course, it’s likely that at that same time, your baby will need you to hold him or her without end. This is where a really great baby carrier can save the day. Everyone can stay happy- hands-free mommy or daddy with happy, held baby. There also comes a point when some babies, as they get a bit older, just don’t want to face in, they want to be able to see what’s beyond their carrier in the great, big wide open world, not to mention that they start getting pretty heavy. This is where the Kokopax Classic Carrier can again save the day. This great carrier is a lightweight carrier that rides on your back, giving you back your hands and giving your baby an unobstructed view of that widely expanding, great, big, world that lies ahead.

The Kokopax Classic Carrier (at left) offers a secure seat for your baby that give you your hands back without too much bulk, weight or complicated contraptions. Features include a 5 point harness, adjustable shoulder straps & frame, storage pocket, lightweight frame and steady kickstand. There’s even a handy toy ring for your special passenger. The prints are very nice as well, stylish and not at all babyish. This is a great pack for home or away- making dinner or running errands, easily adjusted to mom or dad. The carrier is just as simple to use and putting on a backpack and offers a ride that will please any little one. My daughter, at 14 months, will no longer ride in any carrier, but she loves this one. I love that it’s so easy to use and that I can really get her on my back, which I’m not very good at with other carriers. Suitable from 6 months up to 2 years (35 lb max), this is great for that age when children really want to explore a bit more, but still need to be carried much of the time. Also available are the City model ($99.99) and the Eco-carrier ($179.99, shown below), which offers the addition of eco-certified fabrics and a waist belt for added support. The Kokopax classic carrier retails for $149.99 and is available in 6 fabric options. Please visit the Kokopax site for more information on this and all of the other terrific Kokopax products.

The Samantha Diaper Tote from Kokopax

The Samantha Diaper tote is a perfect non-diaper diaper bag. If you’re looking for a bag that won’t scream “I’m full of diapers, paci’s and sippy cups!”, then this is a great option. Generously sized to hold everything you need, the Samantha is styled to look more like a stylish handbag than a baby bag and still function well as a really great baby bag. The bag itself is 100% cotton canvas with a water-resistant lining, perfectly sized over the shoulder handles, leather accents and is available in 8 prints. I’m currently using the Flutter and it looks great, a nice modern print that goes with everything. Inside the main pocket you’ll find a secure zippered pocket on one side, 3 extra-deep pockets on the other and the always needed cup holder pocket for that sippy cup or bottle. The magnetic closure and tote bag styled top means everything is always right at hand, even when your hands are full. You can reach right inside for that cup, a pacifier or a wipe one handed while holding your baby in the other, no fumbling with clasps, snaps or zippers.

This bag really will hold everything you need for a regular day out with your child, a bit extra for those longer trips and easily adapt right back to a bag for days without a baby in tow. This is also a great toddler bag, when you don’t need to lug a bunch of baby items or the (included) changing pad any longer, but still need easy access to snack, sweaters and toys. My youngest is now 14 months, so this bag is great for going out with everything we need, yet I feel like I’m just carrying a handy, stylish tote.  I can still bring along plenty of snacks, a drink or two, a change of clothes and a diaper, a few books and toys to keep her happy, but my bag looks more like a really great purse. The bottle holder pocket will easily hold any bottle or cup I’ve tried, including my 750 ml water bottle. Plus I love the shape and the handles are such a great size- perfect for over the shoulder, in the hand or my favorite, over the arm. Best of all, when you finally leave those diaper bag days behind, the Samantha can keep on functioning as a great bag with plenty of room for all of your needs, not baby’s, and the bag will have a new life instead of retirement to the back of the closet.

The Samantha Diaper tote retails for $99.99. Please visit the Kokopax site for more information and to see all of the lovely prints. While on the site, be sure to check out Kokopax’s really terrific baby carriers and their very cute baby sun hats in coordinating fabrics.
