An infant child carrier is an ideal option for babies approximately 6 months of age and younger who don’t yet have the head and neck control for a backpack-style child carrier. When choosing an infant child carrier, look for models that fit your shape and that have both waist and shoulder straps to distribute weight evenly. Front-riding infant carriers can hold approximately 25 to 30 pounds of baby and baby’s gear. This type of child carrier can be especially handy for running errands and going on airplane trips.
The Kelty Wallaby infant carrier offers many features to ensure a parent’s and child’s comfort, including:
- An adjustable seat, so your baby can face you or face out.
- Padded shoulder straps and waist strap for maximum comfort for parents.
- Padded, secure seat for your baby that’s adjustable for a customized fit.
- All cotton material for softness.
To take babies and children along when you’re cycling, check out the Croozer bike trailer, which has a padded harness and low center of gravity for safety and comfort.
