Carrier recommendations for 2+ yr olds? I am going on a 7 week holiday towards the end of the year, which includes quite a bit of walking (bush walking and city walking) and have been looking into a toddler carrier for my 2 year old and something that may even be suitable for my 4 year old. I have narrowed it down to a Boba or a Tula. Does anybody have any advice or offer another great suggestion to look into? What do you recommend?

  • Sounds like you had a great family holiday planned enjoying the great Australian Outdoors

  • I must say you are a very active mum. A wonderful role model for your children. I hope you enjoyed your holiday

  • If price isn’t your first concern, I’d definitely go with Kathmandu, as they’re really well made, and they’ll last for ages. You can use them if you have more children, or you can pass them on to someone else, rather than throw them in the bin because they’ve broken.

  • there are some good comments here

  • i would try the pusher. Ther is one that fits into a small backpack. sorry i cant remember the name of it though

  • Did you end up finding one to suit your needs?

  • What carrier did you end up getting?

  • Give them a go in store and see what feels more comfortable for you

  • how did it turn out?

  • How did your holiday end up going?

  • Hope you managed to find one that best suits you.

  • What one did you decide to get?

  • Kathmandu has some really good heavy duty ones

  • I hope you find a good one- i would choose a back carrier as it will be easier for you to walk across rough terrain.

  • I like the front carrying style so you just need to glance down to check bub.
